  • GM’s Biggest Chinese Ally Braces For First Annual Sales Dip

    GM’s Biggest Chinese Ally Braces For First Annual Sales Dip

    (Bloomberg) -- SAIC Motor Corp. expects annual sales to fall for the first time in at least 14 years as China’s biggest automaker battles through a slump in demand roiling the world’s largest car market, according to people familiar with the matter.The Shanghai-based company, Volkswagen AG and General Motors Co.’s biggest auto-making partner in China, projects 2019 sales will fall about 7%, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information hasn’t been made public. The new target of 6.54 million is about 8% below SAIC’s public forecast for a slight increase in sales and would represent the first full-year drop on record, based on data compiled by Bloomberg back to 2006.Citing weakness in Chinese demand for cars, JPMorgan lowered its second quarter earnings per share estimate for GM on Thursday to $1.25 from $1.29, and also cut its projection for GM’s 2020 profit by about 1%.Investors seemed unfazed by the news as GM rose 1.1% to $39.53 as of 10:56 a.m. in New York.At SAIC’s venture with VW, sales are expected to fall by about 3% to 2 million units and deliveries at SAIC General Motors Corp. are projected to slide by almost 8% to 1.82 million vehicles, according to one of the people. The figures would represent the first full-year drop for the VW venture and the second-straight annual decline for the GM one, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.The projections are the latest signs of deterioration in the global car market, as shifts in technology and weakening economic growth give consumers fewer reasons to go to the showroom, whether it be in China, the U.S. or Europe. The slump is prompting traditional automakers to fight back, by slashing jobs, pursuing mergers, and plowing billions of dollars into electric and self-driving vehicles.A representative for SAIC said that if the overall market slides this year, the company plans to sustain its market share. Representatives for GM and the SAIC-VW venture declined to comment.In China, consumers bought more cars in June -- the first increase in a year -- but those gains were largely inflated by heavy discounts to clear inventory, indicating the trend won’t last. Deliveries to dealerships continued to fall. The state-backed China Association of Automobile Manufacturers is forecasting a second straight year of declines in the country’s passenger-car market, while researcher LMC Automotive last month predicted a 5% drop. GM representatives declined to comment on forward-looking figures.Adding to the woes in China are continued trade frictions with the U.S. and the advent of tougher emissions standards.SAIC reported this month a 17% drop in first-half sales and said it saw declines across its various ventures. The company has offered buyers incentives of as much as 50% over the past few months to clear inventory of cars that don’t meet stricter emissions standards, according to local media reports. Eighteen provinces and regions -- which together account for most of China’s car sales -- began requiring vehicles to meet the new criteria from July 1.It’s not just SAIC that’s suffering. Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd., which is controlled by billionaire Volvo Cars owner Li Shufu, issued a profit warning last week. That triggered a broader fear that the automaker -- which Sanford C. Bernstein sees as a barometer for sentiment on car stocks -- is foreshadowing further pain across the sector. Great Wall Motor Co. on Friday warned first-half profit fell about 59% and slashed its full-year sales forecast to 1.07 million units, or 11% below what it projected in March.Beyond China, European car registrations fell for the ninth time in 10 months, with June seeing the region’s biggest drop this year. In the U.S., most automakers posted shrinking sales in June and the industry is headed for the second annual sales decline in three years.Even India, long a growth market with still-low car penetration, is now suffering from a prolonged decline. Sales of passenger vehicles in the country dropped more than 17% in June, the eighth straight monthly retreat.(Adds analyst lowering estimate of GM’s EPS in third paragraph.)\--With assistance from David Welch and Kyle Lahucik.To contact Bloomberg News staff for this story: Tian Ying in Beijing at ytian@bloomberg.net;Steven Yang in Beijing at kyang74@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Young-Sam Cho at ycho2@bloomberg.net, Ville Heiskanen, Emma O'BrienFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Son Shines a Spotlight on His Vision Fund Proteges

    (Bloomberg) -- Masayoshi Son likes to sketch out a grand vision for the future of artificial intelligence to justify his seemingly scattershot approach to investing. On Thursday, he let his proteges and startups speak for themselves.SoftBank Group Corp.’s $100 billion Vision Fund has 82 companies in its portfolio who delve into areas from satellites and autonomous driving to chips and cancer detection. The founders of Southeast Asian ride-hailing giant Grab, indoor farming startup Plenty, Indian hotel chain OYO Rooms and payments service Paytm took the stage at an annual SoftBank conference to explain how AI helps them stay on top in their respective fields.Ritesh Agarwal, Oyo’s 25-year-old founder, said the company is using data to evaluate properties in under five days, a process that might take traditional hotels months. That allows the startup to add about 90,000 new rooms every 90 days, for a total of 1.1 million. Oyo also uses algorithms to predict what kind of interior design can boost demand -- pictures of Marilyn Monroe help, apparently -- and to adjust prices more than 43,000 times a minute.Grab’s Anthony Tan said the company captures 40 terabytes of data daily through its “superapp,” which has been downloaded 155 million times by customers who use it to call a ride, order lunch and pay for purchases. Crunching those numbers allows Grab to make sure a car can be hailed within three minutes and offer food recommendations. The data can also help reduce congestion in Southeast Asia’s crowded cities, reduce food wastage and improve access to credit.Each of Paytm’s 700 billion mobile payment transactions runs a gauntlet of more than 1,000 checks in a thousandth of a second, to root out fraud, founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma said at the event. The rules can be as simple as comparing the phone’s location to that of a merchant receiving payment, and declining those that don’t match. The data could also be used by sellers to determine in real time whether to extend a particular customer credit.Finally, Plenty says its high-tech approach to growing crops indoors results in plants that yield more without pesticides, use a fraction of water of their counterparts in the field and taste better, to boot. Founder Matt Barnard said the company used AI to developed 64 billion produce recipes that allow farmers to adapt production within days to take advantage of a sudden shortage of kale or iceberg lettuce.SoftBank’s Vision Fund poured $3 billion into Grab and took part in a $1 billion round for Oyo last year. In 2017, it led a $200 million investment in Plenty. Last year’s event included presentations from machine learning platform Pettum Inc., Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing, ZhongAn Insurance and General Motors Co.’s self-driving unit, Cruise.“The crystal ball that tells the future doesn’t exist, but something close to that is being created now,” Son said at SoftBank World in Tokyo. “The AI revolution can make people happier. That’s the opportunity in front of us.”(Corrects the number of produce recipes in the sixth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Pavel Alpeyev in Tokyo at palpeyev@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Edwin Chan at echan273@bloomberg.net, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    General Motors Co unveiled on Thursday its newly designed mid-engine 2020 Corvette in a splashy tribute to its emblematic sports car, even as the No. 1 U.S. automaker faces mounting pressures in a sluggish and uncertain global sales environment. In a glitzy presentation in Orange County outside Los Angeles, the eighth generation of the 66-year-old "Vette," in red, white, and blue, roared down a runway stopping short before an audience of Corvette enthusiasts, GM executives, dealers and media. Revved up to take on high-performance European rivals, the new Corvette, dubbed the C8, provides a breath of fresh air to GM, which along with other carmakers faces slowing sales and new financial pressures related to global trade, electrification and unresolved emission standards.

    3 Big Stock Charts for Thursday: Eastman Chemical, Verizon and General Motors

    After stalling on Monday and struggling on Tuesday, the bears finally got their pound of flesh. On Wednesday, the S&P 500 fell 0.65%, closing near its low for the day after a few too many investors rethought their positions after a fairly tough start to earnings season.Source: Shutterstock Railroad company CSX (NASDAQ:CSX) hit the wall the hardest, slumping more than 10% after falling short of last quarter's earnings expectations then underscoring that miss with a disappointing outlook. Telecom technology name Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) was a miserable performer too, however, down 11% after missing its quarterly earnings estimates and painting a grim picture of its business in Asia.At the other end of the spectrum, Shopify (NYSE:SHOP) rallied more than 2% as investors jockeyed to get into the one name that could prove disruptive to the e-commerce landscape.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Best Cryptocurrencies to Keep on Your Radar But none of those names are as compelling as the stock charts of Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE:EMN), General Motors (NYSE:GM) and Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ) headed into Thursday's action. Here's what makes these three names so special. Eastman Chemical Company (EMN)Given the action Eastman Chemical Company shares have dished out over the past couple of weeks, it would be easy to say EMN just blew its chance at clearing its 200-day moving average line plotted in white on both stocks charts. The June rally was stopped cold there, and Tuesday's short-lived trek above the 200-day line was also halted when the late-June high near $80 was re-met.There's more bullishness packed into this chart than readily meets the eye, however. Another good nudge or two could do the trick. Click to Enlarge * Although the June effort to clear the 200-day moving average line failed, notice the subsequent pullback was halted and reversed cleanly at the purple 50-day moving average line. * Yesterday, the gray 100-day moving average line also became a support level. * While the 200-day line is a critical hurdle here, the $80 area has been defined as the make-or-break area for meaningful upside. Verizon Communications (VZ)With nothing more than a passing glance at Verizon Communications, it looks like the stock is simply range-bound, bouncing to and from near-term peaks and troughs. And, that may be all that's taking shape here.But, as was noted on June 21, VZ stock is increasingly putting pressure on its 200-day moving average line as a technical floor. Although it's still intact, the stock is quietly inching closer to a break under that support, which could easily open the doors to lower lows in a hurry. * 7 Stocks Top Investors Are Buying Now Click to Enlarge * Just since April, the testing of the 200-day line, plotted in white on both stock charts, has heated up to where it's being touched on a regular basis. * Although it has not happened yet, we're even closer to a so-called death cross now than we were a month ago. That's where the purple 50-day average crossed under the 200-day line. * Even a break under the 200-day line is no guarantee of a complete meltdown, however. There's a support line at $55.34, where the red, dashed line that connects the key lows since early last year lies. General Motors (GM)Like all other players in the automobile industry, General Motors has struggled since "peak auto" came and went in 2015. Although it fared better than the rest and it was able to drive GM stock sharply higher in 2017, it wasn't meant to last. The pullback has been particularly bumpy.There has been a method to the madness behind all the volatility, however. The highs and lows going back to 2015 have formed a wedge pattern that's squeezing General Motors shares into a point. The stock may not get all the way to the convergence of that triangle shape, however, if they can just get over the ceiling they're testing right now. Click to Enlarge * There are actually two upper boundaries of the wedge. The bigger-picture one is plotted as a white dashed line, while the gray dashed line has only taken shape since early 2018. * We've seen it before to no avail, but the white 200-day moving average line is sloped upward again, suggesting the longer-term trend is net-bullish. * Although pressing the upper boundary of the wedge right now, General Motors stock might be better served by sliding a little lower, regrouping and then trying one more time.As of this writing, James Brumley held no position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    3 Hot Investing Trends: Next Steps and Big Opportunities

    That cracking sound you heard last week was the stock market breaking through its previous highs to set all-time records.Source: Shutterstock That moaning sound you heard was investors who thought: a) stocks would keep falling after the pullback in May, or b) stocks were at all-time highs and couldn't keep going higher.Either way, they're missing out.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsI hope you're not one of them. But if you are, it's not too late. That's my message to anyone who will listen to me.I for one am all in on stocks. That shouldn't surprise you if you're a regular MoneyWire reader. In My Top 10 Predictions for 2019 from last December, I said the S&P 500 Index would be up a minimum of 25% at some point during the year. As of today, it's up 21%. We're close.I am more confident than ever that the market will top 25% gains in the coming months. I like the current environment, and I also just came across pretty compelling historical data that is perfect for current conditions. I'll have more for you on that next week.The U.S. stock market continues to be the greatest wealth creator in the history of mankind. If you want to live the life of your dreams, you need to be invested in stocks -- especially companies leading the way in massive, unstoppable trends that are changing our world.These are the themes I research deeply and talk to so many industry insiders about.They are themes that you can profit from in multiple ways.And they are the themes that give you the absolute best chances to make 2X, 3X, 5X, or even 10X your money.Let's check in on some of the latest news in those trends. Another Step on the Path to LegalizationWe have to start with marijuana. It may be the hottest theme right now, and it's a monster opportunity that just got better.We continue to get more signals that legalization is around the corner, and the latest is a big one. Last Wednesday, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security held a hearing in which reform of marijuana laws was discussed.As I wrote last week, the need for reform is something both parties actually agree on. There still needs to be agreement on exactly what reform would look like, whether it's decriminalization, changing marijuana's status as a Schedule 1 drug, opening up banking laws for marijuana companies, or leaving the decision to the states.Any of those options move us closer to full legalization and will supercharge the already huge opportunity.Also this week, another one of our stocks joined the Pot Jumpers club as KushCo Holdings (OTCMKTS:KSHB) applied to uplist to the Nasdaq Composite from the Over-the-Counter (OTC) Exchange.Jumper Stocks are one of the most exciting opportunities in the exploding legal marijuana industry. These jumps from the minor leagues to the major leagues give companies instant credibility, access to institutional buyers previously forbidden from owning shares, and increased coverage from analysts.All of it is like fuel for the rocket ship. (I actually just recommended my newest Pot Jumper stock, which is a bit different than our others and is in great position. I'm targeting at least 3.5X our initial investment.)We've seen a few marijuana stocks make the jump already this year, but less than 10% of all cannabis-related companies currently trade on the big exchanges. This trend is still in its very early stages, so expect a lot more uplistings in the future.I also want to let you know that I'm about finished beta testing a new way to make money in marijuana stocks. I don't see anyone else doing this yet, but the early results are incredible. (You can learn more about it here, including how to get access to it for free when it's ready to go.) Big Names Continue to Pour Big Money Into Transportation 2.0"Our industry is going to change more deeply in the coming 10 years than in the 100 years before."Matthias Muller, the then CEO of Volkswagen, spoke those words in May 2017. A little more than two years later, the world's second largest car maker is investing a lot of money in what's to come.This morning, Volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY) and Ford Motor (NYSE:F) expanded on an existing partnership, adding both electric vehicles (EVs) and autonomous vehicles (AVs) to the list of things they're working on. Ford had already invested $1 billion in Argo AI, a private company developing a self-driving system. Volkswagen will invest $2.6 billion in the same company.Volkswagen has also already invested about $10 billion in developing EVs, while Ford is investing $11 billion over the next several years.The stakes are so big that other companies usually viewed as competitors have teamed up to develop EVs and AVs, including General Motors (NYSE:GM) and Honda Motor (NYSE:HMC) as well as BMW (OTCMKTS:BMWYY) and Daimler (OTCMKTS:DMLRY).When an industry like transportation is disrupted, it will lead to trillions of dollars moving from the old to the new. You want to invest in companies that will be on the receiving end of these trillions of dollars on the move. Investors can make a tremendous amount of money in a short time. What's coming is going to be that powerful. 5G Makes HistoryLongtime readers know I'm a huge sports fan, so I especially love it when sports and technology come together … not to mention investing opportunities.Last Thursday, the NBA broadcast a Summer League game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Washington Wizards using smartphones and 5G technology. The game was on in several places, including the ESPN app, NBA TV Canada, and NBA League Pass. AT&T (NYSE:T) provided the 5G network. Samsung provided the smartphones. And Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) provided the network infrastructure.The 5G network is the biggest breakthrough yet in this age of wireless communications. Just as there were fortunes made in prior generations, there will be big money made once again. In fact, I think the opportunity is even bigger now because the leap ahead will drive some of the most powerful tech trends the world has seen -- cloud computing, virtual reality, smart cities, healthcare, autonomous vehicles, and on and on.I think of it as the next-generation toll road. The road to the future passes through 5G, and it's time to set up our booth and start collecting.Matthew McCall is the founder and president of Penn Financial Group, an investment advisory firm, as well as the editor of Investment Opportunities and Early Stage Investor. He has dedicated his career to getting investors into the world's biggest, most revolutionary trends BEFORE anyone else.
