    Sluggish Car Sales Slow Down Chipmakers as Trade Woes Escalate

    (Bloomberg) -- Semiconductor companies are wincing as consumers around the globe are buying fewer cars amid continuing trade tensions between the U.S. and China.China has been a pain point for the sector as the two countries continue to spar on trade, and chipmakers had braced for slumping demand in the country to dent performance. The automotive sector has emerged as one of the biggest sources of weakness and is now threatening to dampen the chances of a recovery in the latter half of the year.It has so far been an unfortunate year for automakers, as global sales shrank 6.5% from a year earlier in the first quarter of 2019, and 7% in the next three months, according to Bloomberg Intelligence. China led the decline with car sales in the country falling for 12 consecutive months through June, amid slowing economic growth, trade-related turmoil, and a weak consumer demand, exacerbated by newer and stricter emissions rules. With the U.S. and China ratcheting the turmoil up a notch this week, some say the risks of tariffs on auto imports is now higher.Many auto parts suppliers, as well as Ford Motor Co., have reported disappointing results and issued weak forecasts for the year, citing the China slowdown. And now the effect is rippling through the rest of the supply chain, hurting chipmakers and other industrial manufacturers.“China weakness was expected, but in all honesty, we were expecting a trade deal by now,” Piper Jaffray & Co. analyst Harsh Kumar said in an interview. Kumar, who covers semiconductor stocks, said the companies supplying the automotive market were still seeing growth in radar and electrification-related products, while the traditional, gas engine segment is getting hit hard.Most of the automotive chip manufacturers have a larger piece of their business associated with traditional auto, and “that is not doing so well because there isn’t any market share or penetration to be gained; it is simply a units game,” Kumar said, referring to the fewer number of cars being sold.Maxim Integrated Products Inc., which makes chips that are used in various parts of a car including lighting, infotainment and driver assistance systems, said it expected the calendar third quarter to be slow, due to a “soft environment” for automotive production. The company’s battery management systems used in electric vehicles will also have fewer shipments, given the market uncertainty in China, the company said.The concerns were echoed by NXP Semiconductors NV, which makes components that help a car to sense its environment and process that data. Maxim and NXP’s customers include auto suppliers such as Aptiv Plc, Lear Corp. and Visteon Corp. as well as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV. Other chipmakers with substantial auto market exposure include Infineon Technologies AG, Analog Devices Inc., Texas Instruments Inc., and Microchip Technology Inc.Meanwhile, Rockwell Automation Inc., which counts both automotive and semiconductor sectors among its customers, saw both markets decline in the quarter ending June 30.“Overall, the combination of production cuts and reductions in component inventory is having an significant impact,” Morgan Stanley’s Craig Hettenbach, who covers semiconductors, said in an email interview. The analyst said that while the weakness is most pronounced in China, Europe has also been below expectations from the beginning of the year. “There is a lot of focus on when China will provide incentives to stimulate demand, but company and investor expectations for stimulus are pretty low right now,” Hettenbach said.A respite is not expected anytime soon. According to Moody’s, global vehicle sales are expected to fall 3.8% in 2019, amid further weakening demand in China and Western Europe. The latest round of trade war-related tarriffs could make matters even worse.To contact the reporter on this story: Esha Dey in New York at edey@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brad Olesen at bolesen3@bloomberg.net, Jennifer Bissell-Linsk, Morwenna ConiamFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Lear's stock falls after profit beat but sales fell shy, and lowered guidance

    Shares of Lear Corp. lost 1.8% in premarket trading Friday, after the auto parts maker reported a second-quarter profit that beat expectations, but revenue that fell a bit shy and lowered its full-year outlook. Net income fell to $182.8 million, or $2.92 a share, from $331.4 million, or $4.83 a share, in the year-ago period. Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted EPS declined to $3.78 from $4.95 but was above the FactSet consensus of $3.71. Sales dropped 10.3% to $5.01 billion, just below the FactSet consensus of $5.02 billion. Seating sales declined 10.2% to $3.84 billion to top the FactSet consensus of $3.80 billion while electrical systems sales slipped 10.6% to $1.17 billion to miss expectations of $1.24 billion. " Lear's financial results in the second quarter were negatively impacted by continued declines in industry production, a significant number of program changeovers, slower production ramp ups on new vehicles, and continued weakening of global currencies against the U.S. dollar," said Chief Executive Ray Scott. Lear cut its 2019 sales guidance to $19.8 billion to $20.3 billion from $20.9 billion to $21.7 billion and its free cash flow outlook to $675 million to $775 million from $850 million to $950 million. The stock has shed 7.8% over the past three months through Thursday, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 2.3%.

    Lear's stock sinks after cutting full-year guidance as industry volumes continue to decline

    Shares of Lear Corp. sank 7.6% in premarket trading Tuesday, after the automotive electrical systems company cut its full-year outlook, citing continued declines in industry production volumes and macroeconomic headwinds.
