Previously, we saw how the strengthening US dollar could benefit foreign automakers (VCR) such as Toyota (TM) and Honda (HMC). An upward movement in the US Dollar Index could also hurt the international market profitability of US automakers General Motors (GM) and Ford (F). Now, let’s take a look at the recent crude oil price movement and find out what it suggests for the auto industry.
The latest US employment report indicated that the unemployment rate in the US has declined to an 18-year low of 3.8%. Another fall of a basis point is expected to take the unemployment level to a level not seen since 1960. The Federal Reserve has the mandate to maintain maximum employment.
Are Trade Wars Improving the US Trade Deficit? The US international trade deficit decreased to $46.2 billion in April—a healthy decline compared to the revised March reading of $47.2 billion. The report was prepared by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis and the Census Bureau.
In April, Toyota (TM), the largest Japanese automaker, reported a 4.7% YoY (year-over-year) decrease in its North American sales volume to 192,348 units. In February, the company’s sales rose 3.5% YoY to 222,782 vehicles. Toyota’s Q1 2018 sales of 572,033 units were not far behind Ford’s (F) Q1 2018 home market sales of 577,119 units.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis (or BEA) released its second estimate for the first-quarter real GDP on May 30. The report indicated that all four major components had a positive contribution to GDP growth in the first quarter. The service sector (IYC) was the second-highest contributor to US economic growth.
So far in 2018, TM has risen ~8%. The company’s strong fiscal 2018 financial performance could be one of the drivers of this optimism.
So far in this series, we have covered analysts’ estimates for AutoZone’s third-quarter earnings, revenue, and profit margins. Analyst estimates suggest AZO could report positive year-over-year growth in its Q3 2018 earnings and revenues, but its profit margins might disappoint. Now, let’s move on by taking a look at some of the company’s key metrics and ratios before it announces fiscal Q3 2018 results on May 22.
Toyota Motor’s (TM) vehicle sales in North America fell 1.1% YoY (year-over-year) to 2.8 million units in fiscal 2018. In spite of this drop in sales volumes, the company’s revenue from the region rose to 10.6 trillion Japanese yen in fiscal 2018, ~3.3% higher than in fiscal 2017.
Traditional cap-weighted consumer discretionary exchange traded funds, such as the Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR (XLY) , are usually dominated by shares of Amazon.com (AMZN). For example, XLY, the the largest exchange traded fund tracking the consumer discretionary sector, devotes almost 22% of its weight to Amazon, or more than triple the weight the ETF assigns to its second-largest holding. In other words, Amazon's price action is a big deal for many consumer discretionary ETFs.
According to the latest data compiled by Thomson Reuters, 31% of the 26 analysts covering Tesla (TSLA) have given the stock “buy” recommendations, and 38% have recommended “holds.” The remaining 31% expect Tesla stock to underperform and have suggested “sells” on its stock.
In the previous article, we discussed how Tesla’s (TSLA) solid Model 3 quarter-over-quarter production growth has largely been unable to boost investors’ confidence in 2018 so far. The company has missed its own Model 3 production expectations in the last couple of quarters, which could be one of the reasons for the pessimism among investors.
According to latest consensus data compiled by Reuters, 50% of analysts covering Ferrari (RACE) gave its stock “buy” recommendations.
