Dorman Products ( DORM) produces original equipment dealer replacement parts for automobiles. One lingering result of the financial crisis is that the age of the existing fleet of cars in the U.S. is at a record high 10.8 years. As a result, consumers and even commercial operators of automobiles have been spending more money repairing their existing vehicles.

The company is expected to increase earnings by 16% in 2011 and 14% in 2012. The stock sells at 13 times forward earnings, a discount to its growth rate. Short-sellers think the stock will break down alongside the road and have shorted about 5% of outstanding shares with a short ratio of about 13.

Dorman Products might not be a sleek high growth sports car but it is cheap by the numbers and it too heavily shorted.
