    FEATURE-Workers nervously eye return to Lear's coronavirus-hit plant in Mexico

    Lear Corp is implementing costly safety measures that may hurt productivity at its operations in Mexico after suffering the deadliest known factory-related coronavirus outbreak in the Americas, but the U.S. auto parts maker still faces a battle to win back workers' trust. The northern Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez remains in the throes of the pandemic as it mourns the deaths of numerous factory workers, including 20 from Lear's Rio Bravo plant, which makes trim seat covers for Mercedes-Benz and Ford. "I don't think you'll find anyone who says they're not scared," Alma Sonia Trevizo, an employee at the Rio Bravo plant, told Reuters while on a break from safety training ahead of its planned June 1 partial restart.

    With New Vehicles on the Horizon, Ford Stock Is Back in Gear

    The last thing on the consumer's mind is buying an automobile. So the low likelihood of a demand rebound for such expensive, luxury items will slow the recovery in Ford (NYSE:F), which already isn't having a great year. F stock is trading at just a little more than half its price at the beginning of the year.Source: Proxima Studio / Shutterstock.com Besides, the stay-at-home order may have permanently changed the need to commute to work. And with lower demand for cars and the potential for excess supply as people sell them, why should investors even consider F stock?Ford said it would delay the launch of its redesigned F-150 pickup, the Mustang Mach-E, and the Bronco sport-utility vehicle. This is due to the idling of its plants for around two months.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsFortunately, Hau Thai-Tang, Ford's head of product development and purchasing, said that "we're not going to do any additional delay to these launches beyond the impact of Covid-19 as a mechanism to conserve cash." * 7 Penny Stocks To Buy with Massive Upside Potential As a forward-looking machine, markets will interpret the statement to mean that operations will resume when its plants open again. A Closer Look at F StockFord will lose around $5 billion in the quarter due to the shutdown and reduced demand. As operations resume, the company may continue the development of its new products. And by the time jobs return and the economy rebounds, consumer interest for Ford should improve.Ford, General Motors (NYSE:GM), and Fiat Chrysler all planned to reopen North American factories on May 18. Ford has two near-term objectives. First, it needs to confirm that the new safety protocols will prevent any Covid-19 infections.For example, this includes distancing among factory workers, face masks, and cleaning of work areas. Ford's second objective is to re-start its product refresh pathway that appeals to a wary, price-conscious consumer. Mainstream 2021 Mustang Electric VehicleDetails of Ford's 2021 Mustang Mach-E will give Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) fans something to think about.The Mach-E will charge from 10% to 80% in just 38 minutes. This is half as fast as Tesla and is 30% faster than Ford's preliminary estimates. But the electric crossover starts at $44,995 and is as high as over $60,000. By comparison, Tesla's Model Y will start at $46,690 and may cost more than $65,000.Getting 61 miles in range with a 10-minute charge improves the suitability of short, local commutes. Also, Ford grew its FordPass charging network by adding 1,000 stations. At each of those stations, it added 5,000 plugs.On the software side of the EV business, Ford must win its customer's confidence by building on quality and continued support. Long after the SUV leaves the dealership, Ford said all Mustang Mach-E models stay up-to-date. Using over-the-air updates, software updates will not take more than two minutes. Exciting Opportunity for FordFord's upcoming quarterly losses put a damper on the company's exciting EV launch ahead. But after finding support at the $3.96 bottom reached in late March, the automobile manufacturer is a worthwhile bet.Simplywall.st reports the forecasted annual earnings growth is ~110%.

    Here's How Amazon Could Become A Threat To Tesla, Ford And More With Zoox Buy

    Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is in late-stage talks to acquire Zoox, a budding robo-taxi service. Zoox's hardware and software assets could be a boon for Amazon, but a bane for automotive players fighting to retain market share.Morgan Stanley analysts led by Adam Jonas maintained an Overweight rating on Amazon with a $2,600 price target.How Amazon Could Become A ThreatZoox positions Amazon to expand its total addressable market with food-delivery and ride-sharing services."AMZN's innovation focus, capital to invest, and leading shipping volumes (and the miles driven along with them) make it one of the few companies that could build a product to compete with Waymo, Uber, Lyft and others," Jonas wrote in a note.Zoox's capabilities would also position Amazon to rival automotive companies."In a post-COVID world, we believe fewer and more powerful players will be in position to deploy capital and talent to solving autonomy with a 'play to win' mindset," the analysts wrote. "We see Amazon (and other tech players) as clear competitors, not partners, vs the likes of" Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA), Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) and General Motors Company (NYSE: GM).Retailers, Shippers Could Also Be HurtAmazon's expansion could also hurt retailers and shippers. By Morgan Stanley's estimate, Zoox could hasten the development of Amazon's third-party logistics network and generate shipping efficiencies that save more than $20 billion a year."From an e-commerce perspective, it could lead to a potentially even more efficient long-term delivery network (long-haul and last mile) to compete harder against traditional retailers and other online players," the analysts wrote. "In our view, the value of cost effective shipping is likely to only rise given the inflection we are seeing in e-commerce in 2020."Autonomous middle-mile and last-mile delivery services would challenge United Parcel Service, Inc.

  • $1 Trillion of Corporate Bonds Today, Downgrades Tomorrow

    $1 Trillion of Corporate Bonds Today, Downgrades Tomorrow

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- The amount of new debt issued this year in the U.S. investment-grade corporate bond market will reach $1 trillion today, by far the fastest pace in history. The implications of that milestone depend on how you look at it.For businesses that had been ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing nationwide lockdowns, access to capital markets was a lifeline to get through the worst of the economic collapse. Sure, Carnival Corp. had to offer interest rates like a junk-rated borrower and Boeing Co. needed to include a so-called coupon step-up provision to offset jitters that it could lose its investment grades. But, in the words of Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, these deals avoided turning “liquidity problems into solvency problems” for brand-name American companies.It’s worth remembering that until the Fed stepped in with extraordinary support for credit markets, averting widespread failures was far from guaranteed. Investors pulled a staggering $35.6 billion and $38 billion from investment-grade funds in the weeks ended March 18 and March 25, respectively. Before 2020, the previous record was $5.1 billion of outflows. I wrote on March 19 that bond markets were veering into a vicious cycle that could get ugly in a hurry — four days later, the Fed announced what would end up becoming a $750 billion backstop for corporate America.Now, the Fed hasn’t actually had to buy any individual bonds yet, a fact that Powell seems proud to share. “We may have to be lending money to those companies, but even better, they can borrow themselves now, and a lot of that has been happening and that’s a really good thing,” he said during May 19 testimony before the Senate Banking Committee.Most people would probably agree with that assessment, at least for the immediate future as the country grapples with restarting the world’s largest economy. But what about the longer-term view?Here, the rampant borrowing paints a more sobering picture. As of late April, 1,287 issuers worldwide rated between AAA and B- by S&P Global Ratings were considered at risk of a potential downgrade, up from 860 in March and 649 in February. That surpasses the previous all-time high set in 2009. “Generally, we expect heavy credit erosion in coming months as issuers, especially those in the lower-rated spectrum come under heavy fire from poor earnings, continued difficulties in managing cost structures, and market volatility creating limited funding opportunities,” said Sudeep Kesh, head of S&P’s credit markets research.That’s bad enough, but doesn’t even strike at the heart of the issue. Last year was supposed to be the beginning of a broad “debt diet” among companies that borrowed huge sums to finance mergers and acquisitions during the longest expansion in U.S. history. That didn’t end up taking place on a wide scale. Even a success story like AT&T Inc., which made headway in trimming its debt stack, still found itself back in the bond market recently, borrowing $12.5 billion on May 21 in what was the biggest deal since Boeing’s $25 billion blockbuster offering.When it comes to companies directly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic or structural changes to their industries, the “big three” of S&P, Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch Ratings haven’t shied away from taking action. Ford Motor Co., Kraft Heinz Co., Macy’s Inc. and Occidental Petroleum Corp. are just a few of the “fallen angels” that lost their investment grades earlier this year.The rating companies haven’t been quite as keen to react to high leverage metrics. I frequently refer back to this feature from Bloomberg News’s Molly Smith and Christopher Cannon, which found that of the 50 biggest corporate acquisitions in the five years through October 2018, more than half of the acquiring companies increased their leverage to a level that would seemingly merit a junk rating but remained investment grade on the assumption that they’d take that leverage down in the coming years. Those expectations seemed ambitious in 2018, when the economy was seemingly invincible. Now, no one can truly expect companies to focus on right-sizing their debt. Corporate leaders are rightfully eager to raise cash to get to the other side of the pandemic, especially with all-in yields not far off from record lows. The vast majority of the $1 trillion in borrowing so far this year was by no means imprudent.In the years ahead, however, the overhang from this issuance spree will inevitably weigh down credit ratings. A company with more debt presents a greater risk of missed interest payments than if it had fewer fixed obligations. Fortunately, for much of the previous expansion, firms had no issue finding investors willing to buy their long-term securities. That practice of rolling over debt and extending maturities might very well be the norm in the months and years ahead, too. Still, if the first five months of 2020 are any indication, investment-grade bondholders will have to get comfortable with even more bloated balance sheets and the prospect of further credit downgrades. For better or worse, with the confidence that the Fed has their back, that seems like a risk investors are willing to take.This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Brian Chappatta is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering debt markets.

    23 U.S. states sue Trump administration over fuel efficiency rollback

    A group of 23 U.S. states led by California, the District of Columbia and some major cities are challenging a Trump administration decision to weaken Obama administration fuel efficiency standards. In March, the Trump administration issued final rules requiring 1.5% annual increases in efficiency through 2026 - far weaker than the 5% increases in the discarded Obama-era rules - but abandoned its August 2018 proposal to freeze requirements at 2020 levels through 2026. Last week, a trade group representing General Motors Co , Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Toyota Motor Corp and others sided with the Trump administration on its plan and opposed a legal challenge to further weaken the requirements.

Ford paused production at its Claycomo, Missouri, plant for an hour on Tuesday after a worker tested positive.
