Avis Budget GroupRental car firm Avis Budget Group (CAR) is delivering solid upside -- relative to analysts' forecasts -- for an unusual reason. The company re-acquired Avis Europe last October, which had been sold off a number of years ago. When the deal closed, management promised a wide range of cost cuts and cross-selling synergies that would boost the company's profit profile. And analysts apparently failed to account for those gains in their earnings models.
