NLM-   I think you've nailed it.  PPF will certainly avoid some dings and thereby raise the resale value of your car, but perhaps not always to a degree that makes the investment worthwhile.  But the psychological pain of seeing your baby scratched - due to one's decisions on where to drive/park - can be significant.

My Audi has close to 100k miles on it yet looks almost new.  Finding a new scratch really bugs me.  I've done a lot of minor spot painting with the help of my brothers' tools. 

If I ever spend >$50k on a car, I might just get PPF even though I'll probably only recoup part of the investment.

Overall, Q1 results were better than I expected. They guided for Q1 revenue to decline "modestly" Y/Y, and it declined by 1.6%. A 1.6% decline seems quite modest.

The business is performing well everywhere other than China.

Gross margin came in solid, and driving it higher is a "top priority."

They are doing more installer training and their 2019 conference was "the best attended ever"

Revenue was up 10% Y/Y in April. Guidance is for Q2 revenue to be flat Y/Y, but management admitted on the call that they are guiding "conservatively."

Finally, anyone else think this may pop higher once it gets a Nasdaq listing? Based in San Antonio, the US is the largest market by revenue, etc. The TSX Venture isn't where this needs to be traded.

XPEL Announces Listing on Nasdaq; Registration Statement on Form 10
Declared Effective by SEC

(“the Company”), a global provider of protective films and coatings, today announced
that its registration statement on Form 10 has been declared effective by the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the Company’s common stock
will begin trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market (“NASDAQ”) effective with the
opening of trading on July 19, 2019. Shares of the Company’s common stock will
trade under the symbol “XPEL.”
In connection with its NASDAQ listing, the CUSIP number for the common stock has
been changed to 98379L100. XPEL’s shares will begin trading under the new CUSIP
on the TSX Venture Exchange and commence trading on NASDAQ on July 19, 2019
under the new CUSIP. Shareholders who hold a physical stock certificate are advised
to tender their original certificate to the transfer agent at their earliest convenience in
order to receive a new certificate. No action is required to be taken by shareholders
who hold their shares with a bank or broker with respect to the NASDAQ listing and
CUSIP change.
A Form 10 registers existing shares with the SEC without offering any additional
shares for sale. The Company is now subject to the reporting requirements of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and will file periodic reports such as Form 10-Qs,
Form 10-Ks and Proxy Statements with the SEC.
Ryan Pape, President and Chief Executive Officer of XPEL, commented, “Our listing
on NASDAQ is an exciting milestone for our Company that we’ve been considering
and working toward for quite some time. As a Texas-based company, it makes sense
for XPEL to trade in the U.S. as an SEC registered company, and we believe this
move will enhance our visibility in the marketplace, expose our Company to a larger
audience of investors and ultimately increase liquidity and shareholder value.”
The NASDAQ is the world's largest electronic stock market, listing approximately
3,600 public companies. The exchange trades more shares per day than any other U.S.
equities market. It is also among the world's best-regulated stock markets, employing
sophisticated surveillance systems and regulatory specialists to protect investors and
provide a fair and competitive trading environment.
