With India's auto sales declining for the ninth straight month in July, more automotive manufacturers are laying off workers and temporarily halting production to keep costs in check, according to sources and documents seen by Reuters. Japanese carmaker Toyota Motor and South Korea's Hyundai Motor are the latest in a string of companies to briefly halt some parts of production at plants to combat slumping sales, according to company memos to employees, reviewed by Reuters. The sales declines have triggered major job cuts in India's auto sector, with many companies forced to shut down factories for days and axe shifts.

The best new and used cars for teens from U.S. News & World Report include safety and tracking features.
Safety technology and high-tech parental control played prominently in the U.S. News & World Report's latest list of the Best New Cars for Teens.
The idea of electric cars is not new. In fact, they date back to the 1880's. Over the decades there have been several pushes to popularize them but most efforts had so far fizzled. That is until recently, where Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has made e-cars mainstream. And now other companies are joining the movement, including a Chinese manufacturer called Nio (NYSE:NIO). In spite of the popularity of e-cars, those who owned either TSLA or NIO stock this year are in a world of hurt.Source: Shutterstock The good news is that the global consensus now is that electric cars are here to stay. And that they are a credible threat to the internal combustion engine. While only time will tell, there is a noticeable adoption rate and it seems exponential. We all know at least one person with an electric vehicle or someone thinking about buying one. So the market is viable and that answers the biggest uncertainty in the bullish thesis.Nio stock is struggling, but today's point is that it may just be temporary. If I still own the shares this is not the time to give up on them. Furthermore, this could be a good time to bet on a reversal of fortune for the Nio stock price. The last tactical trade that I was eyeing late July failed to materialize.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe company got its biggest exposure in the U.S. last year when the TV show 60 Minutes aired a special on it. Consequently Nio stock spiked to $10 per share, but once again, it failed to hold that level. Since then, the stock fell as much as 78% from that high to the low, and it is now slightly above that. Nio Stock Needs Time to HealSo now the bulls are left wondering how low can Nio stock go? Zero, is the answer, but that is true for any stock. So the more constructive question is: How high can the stock go? In other words, does Nio, the company, have a future in the electric car market?Yes, it does. * 10 Undervalued Stocks With Breakout Potential So far, Nio seems to be doing as well as the rest of them. The easy way to illustrate this is to compare its stock price to that of Tesla. Over the last year they have moved in tandem. So this suggests that the stock is broken but the company's prospects and fundamentals are not. And if that's true, then all Nio stock really needs is time to heal.But management could help the cause along by stemming the slide in sales trends. Unlike TSLA which is growing its unit sales, NIO's monthly deliveries are going south. The next earnings report will be pivotal on that front.Meanwhile, the benefit of having Nio stock fall so far from the high is that it's so close to zero that it makes for a small risk with big potential reward. At $3 per share, it makes for an easy debt for the long-term. This is a stock that I would buy and forget about for years or until it spikes. If the e-car market flourishes, then Nio stock is likely to recover most of its past glory.It is also important to note that based on the headlines, the Chinese car market in general is struggling. So this is further testament to the fact that this is not a Nio problem, but rather a industry-swoon. First, you have to consider the general Chinese car industry and, second, the electric car market.This too shall pass. For those who still haven't booked their losses in it, it's perhaps too late to sell this low. * 7 Great Small-Cap Stocks to Buy There's not a lot to discern from the chart other than it looks like grim death. But Nio stock has been setting higher lows for almost two months. In addition it is also setting lower highs and that means the price range is tightening into a fine point. These usually result in big moves, but where it's headed is unknown.What makes this interesting is that this is the same area of the 12 months point-of-control. So from a bull/bear debate, this is where they like to fight it out the most and this creates congestion. So in theory, the bulls have an the advantage and they could break out from this descending wedge.It is entirely possible for the Nio stock price to reach $4 sooner rather than later. There would be resistance there and at every past ledge. But those are also potential triggers for more upside.While this write-up sounds bullish, it is imperative to remember that it's up to the Nio bulls to prove that this company is worth it. So I consider this a highly speculative trade and one that has low odds of success. But the lower the odds, the bigger the potential the rewards. And at $3 per share, it's a relatively small risk that is worth the effort.Last week, the entire stock market took a beating on recession fears. So if this week the headlines cooperate, then Nio stock could start that bounce rally along with a rallying stock market.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

Up until fairly recently, I used to be a big fan of Elon Musk and his vaunted company Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). However, a series of unnecessary controversies and unforced errors made me change my opinion. Granted, I still think the man is a genius. However, I wanted to avoid the coming train wreck in TSLA stock.Source: Sheila Fitzgerald / Shutterstock.com And man, was that ever the right decision. Year-to-date, Tesla stock is down more than 28%. Of course, this figure includes the effect of June and July's sympathy rally in TSLA. Without it, shares would have shed closer to 40%.For the bears, I say "never say never." In my opinion, TSLA stock is on the verge of falling into an overwhelmingly negative ecosystem. From internal troubles to external headwinds, Tesla is about to face an unprecedented series of challenges.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHere are three reasons to avoid Tesla stock (unless you want to short it): Recession Cuts Two Ways for TSLA StockOn Wednesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average suffered an 800-point drop, the worst day of 2019 so far. Since no publicly traded company operates in a vacuum, virtually all stocks tanked. Even companies like UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) which has no exposure in China dipped severely. This drew fears of a coming recession.Logically, then, it wasn't a good day for Tesla stock, which does have exposure in China. In fact, before the U.S.-China trade war escalated in the past few weeks, TSLA was making an aggressive push toward dominating the electric vehicle market share in China. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall You can say those plans got scuttled.But that's only the headline headwind. The other swing of the blade comes from a possible recession's associated risks. Primarily, I'm talking about oil prices. During the midweek session, the international oil benchmark Brent crude dropped more than 3% on weak global economic data.That's a massive problem for TSLA stock because it takes away the EV's principal selling point: eliminating pain at the pump.Thus, if we head into a recession, don't expect consumers to jump on EVs. By the way, Tesla's cars aren't that reliable, taking away another selling point and adding troubles to TSLA stock. Tesla Stock Could Get 'ICE-d'I believe most economists agree that we're headed toward at least a market correction, if not a recession. Given that we're on the longest bull market ever, I think that's a reasonable forecast.But let's say that we don't have a recession for whatever reason. Maybe President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping engage in a "Titanic"-like bromance. Or maybe the Federal Reserve finally found the magic formula to quantitative easing.Would an extension of the bull market save Tesla stock? I highly doubt it because of the competition.As I argued last month, we're living in the golden age of the internal combustion engine, or "ICE" for short. While fossil-fueled cars are archaic compared to EVs, they offer astounding conveniences and performance at a great price.Previously, I used the example of a Toyota's (NYSE:TM) popular Camry: It's practical, sporty, reliable and affordable. Also, I think it's good looking. But the point is, modern ICE cars are combining so many attributes under one umbrella. On the other hand, because EVs represent relatively new technologies, they lack ICE cars' consumer friendliness.As an aside, consider General Motors' (NYSE:GM) 2020 Corvette. A mid-engine beast that resembles an Italian exotic, GM made the shocking announcement of selling their flagship for only $60,000. Who'd buy an EV under such an aggressive pricing environment?The innovation in ICE cars is bad news for TSLA stock. Same Old TeslaFinally, let's discuss the third reason to avoid TSLA stock: We're still dealing with the same old Tesla. Specifically, the company loves to overpromise and underdeliver.This has been a criticism that has dogged the company for years. Usually, this has revolved around car deliveries. But recently, the bearish assessment extends to product features, such as automated driving.In the past, Wall Street gave Tesla stock substantial leeway. After all, EVs represented an exciting new technology. And while traditional automakers forwarded ugly or otherwise uninspiring hybrids, Tesla cars were undeniably gorgeous. Stated differently, Tesla did EVs right.But the honeymoon phase is over. The Street wants to see hard numbers to back up the premium in TSLA stock. They also want Musk to stop making unnecessary errors and start taking his business seriously.Of course, some of the bullish arguments rest on the company doing exactly that. But for me, I'm going to read between the lines.As you likely know, Tesla has experienced a mass exodus of key executives. Most recently, chief technology officer JB Straubel stepped down from his post.You've got to wonder what's going on at Tesla. Executives at these types of organizations are overpaid and underworked. So it must take something extraordinary for them to give up such great money. Whatever the case, it's probably not conducive for TSLA stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Japan Inc is caught in the crossfire of the trade war between the United States and China, as a resurgent yen threatens to sap profits and complicate the economic outlook. Worsening trade friction between the world's two largest economies has reduced investor appetite for risk and boosted assets perceived to be safer bets, such as gold and the yen .

The new Toyota Experience Center is filled with relics of the automaker’s past. “Frankly, I don’t like that term,” said Toyota Motor North America (NYSE: TM) Chief Executive Jim Lentz on Wednesday morning at the company’s Plano headquarters. Lentz argues the TEC is more than a museum because in addition to showcasing old cars, like a 1958 Toyopet parked near the entrance, it shows where the company is going as it tries to evolve from a car company to a mobility company.

"Our industry is going to change more deeply in the coming 10 years than in the 100 years before."Source: Shutterstock Matthias Muller, the former CEO of Volkswagen, spoke those words in May 2017. And if he's smart, he's worried about all the change coming to the auto industry.Just behind Toyota, Volkswagen is the world's second largest car maker. Its industry is facing one of the most powerful and most varied set of disruptions in the history of capitalism.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsDuring this time of epic change, huge, seemingly-dominant companies will go out of business very quickly. Longstanding billion-dollar brands will become worthless virtually overnight. New companies will spring up in their place and make their shareholders very wealthy.If you understand what's about to happen, you could make a tremendous amount of money in a short time. What's coming is going to be that powerful and that fast.Think of the auto industry like a large dining table that took decades and hundreds of billions of dollars to set up. The tablecloth is about to get yanked out.Let me explain the "perfect storm" of change coming to one of the biggest industries on the planet. While this perfect storm is terrifying to some, I hope you'll see it as a huge opportunity. The 4 Horsemen of the Auto Industry ApocalypseIf the old auto industry is about to get demolished, here are the four horsemen of its apocalypse … the four major disruptive changes hitting the industry: Disruptive Change 1: The decline of the internal combustion engine.The 20th century was the age of oil … thanks in large part to the internal combustion engine. Some of the world's largest industries have been created to extract fossil fuels, refine them, and burn them while getting from point A to point B.But over the past decade, electric vehicle technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. Companies like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Toyota (NYSE:TM) have invested billions of dollars in the pursuit of increasing the range and reliability of electric vehicles.In addition to technology improvements, electric vehicles have governments on their side. Thanks to environmental concerns, governments in China and Europe are moving to phase out internal combustion engines and phase in electric vehicles. Bloomberg estimates that at least 50% of cars sold by 2040 will be electric.What's coming is a profound shift in how the automotive industry works. I don't believe we'll see the "death of oil" anytime in the next decade. But we will see a continuing shift toward electric vehicles. This means I'd much rather own the best companies involved in electric vehicle battery technology and materials for potential 10X gains over the best oil companies. Disruptive Change 2: The rise of ride sharing services.Thanks to ride sharing services like Uber (NYSE:UBER) and Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT), the concept of "car ownership" has radically changed in the minds of many consumers. Instead of going through all the expense and time associated with owning a car, many people -- especially the under 40 crowd -- would rather just "Uber" to get where they need to go.We're talking tens of millions of consumers who don't care about American "car culture." This is a radical shift from days past.I think we're already seeing the impact on sales. U.S. total vehicle sales rebounded strongly coming out of the Great Recession, exceeding 18 million per month in mid-2015. But except for a couple of spikes since then, sales have largely plateaued and even trended down. Disruptive Change 3: The rise of autonomous vehicles.Just like electric vehicle technology, autonomous vehicle technology has grown by leaps and bounds over the past decade.Self-driving cars have gone from a science fiction fantasy to actually operating in the real world. Waymo -- owned by Google parent Alphabet -- is successfully testing self-driving taxis in Phoenix, Arizona. Tesla has invested enormous amounts of money into making its vehicles autonomous.While estimates of autonomous vehicle adoption over the next 20 years are all over the place, it's safe to say this technology is extremely disruptive to the "old" transportation industry. Autonomous vehicle technology leaders like Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) stand to benefit. Disruptive Change 4: The growing importance of "tech" in cars.The "in car" experience of the future is going to be drastically different than the "in car" experience of the 1990s.From entertainment systems to navigational systems to voice-activated controls to autonomous driving features, the role that software-driven high technology plays in cars is growing every year.For example, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) leads the world in self-driving car patents. The technology behind digital assistants -- which are operated with voice commands -- is dominated by big tech companies like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Alphabet.These tech giants will wield increasing amounts of power in the transportation industry.Summing Up For generations, the auto industry didn't change much. Car makers sold cars with internal combustion engines. There were no ride sharing services like Uber. And the thought of a self-driving car was science fiction.Today, most drivers fill up their cars the same way they did a century ago. The photo below is not much different than today.But now, everything automotive is about to radically change. Transportation will change more in the next 10 years than it has in the last 100 years.Thanks to extraordinary advances in technology, an epic period of change is coming for the trillion-dollar auto industry.If any of today's giants are unable to navigate the coming perfect storm of change, they'll quickly go out of business.Powerful new car makers, component makers, and software makers will take their market share and deliver massive rewards to shareholders. I'm talking on the order of 2X, 3X, 5X and even 10X your money.As with any major business change, I hope you see it as a huge opportunity.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.
