2017-05-19 COMMENT John Petrides

If you’ve been a shareholder of this company, it is probably the most frustrating stock in your portfolio. Ridiculously cheap from a valuation standpoint. They pay out a huge dividend. Their balance sheet, excluding Ford Financial, is very, very healthy. Has more cash than debt. They are committing capital for electric cars in 2020 and 2021. Doing everything the Trump administration would want. Car sales in the US are now sub 17 million on an annualized basis. Investors are fearful that the car market is rolling over and that the segment is slowing down. At current prices, this looks really attractive.

2017-05-18 DON'T BUY David Cockfield

Just announced that they are reducing employees, probably more of the white-collar staff. He is a little concerned about the auto industry in general. It is a very competitive business. Gasoline prices have been cheap, which has helped. He thinks the industry is at the top of its cycle right now, and from here on things are not quite as happy as they had been in the past. He would stay away from the auto industry.

2017-05-16 COMMENT Lorne Steinberg

Yielding 5.5%. The auto industry almost went bust and had their dividend eliminated a decade or so ago. This sector has never been a great place to invest. It is highly cyclical and very capital intensive. Also, consumers are shifting behaviours with ride sharing, which is having an impact on long-term auto sales. There are better places to go.

Over the long run, this has not been very good to investors. Highly indebted. It costs a lot to build cars, and it’s deeply cyclical. He doesn’t like deeply cyclical stocks.

2017-05-09 COMMENT Jennifer Radman

It seems like there are a lot of concerns by investors that we are getting into the late innings of this market cycle. If there is a recession around the corner, what does that mean for highly cyclical companies? We are getting very low valuations on the Sell side. These companies have all dramatically reduced their costs, so that they are breaking even. We are currently at 17 million vehicles, and their breakeven is 11 million, whereas, historically it was a lot higher. Investors will find that earnings will hold up a lot better than what is expected, so that is an opportunity. The question is, do you want to own a cyclical going through a downturn?

2017-05-02 COMMENT Gordon Reid

If needed as a yield play, should there be concern on choppiness? You have to think of these as a total return type process. You are employing your capital to gain a return, and part of that return is your dividend. However, another part is the protection of your capital, and hopefully the growth of your capital. There is no question that the North American auto market is mature, and about 17.5 million units is about it. There is some opportunity in Europe, which is a slightly bigger market than North America, and Asia is even bigger than Europe. The total market is around 65-68 million units, so thinks they will continue to do well, but on a capital basis he doesn’t think there is a lot of hope for a rise in the stock price.

2017-04-06 DON'T BUY Stan Wong

When you look at automotive manufacturers, you want to look at auto sales. We have had some shaky numbers, and shaky information on auto sales in the US and globally going forward. The chart shows this has been really meandering sideways, for at least the last 12 months. The 200-day moving average has been flat. Share price is below the 200-day moving average. Technically, this is not something he would want to buy.

2017-03-23 BUY Norman Levine

His company owns no autos.  First Quarter earnings will be less than expected because fleet sales are down.  But the stock was only down 10 cents.  North American production has probably peaked.  He thinks it will stay there longer than people think.  F-N has a big presence in Europe where auto sales are starting to do better.  F-N will be a beneficiary long term.  Cars are made better than they used to be and they last longer.

2017-03-01 COMMENT John Burke

He is always amazed at how many people like to buy auto stocks. Over the long run, they haven’t made any money. This is the only auto company that didn’t have to get bailed out. There are over 30 automobile manufacturers globally. 30 different choices are too many to make any money in.

It is a tough environment for the autos now that Trump has taken an interest in them.  She still likes them and feels they will remain profitable.  She thinks EPA restrictions will ease for them.

It is tied to the economy.  We hit a high on US auto sales.  You may see positive surprises or a downturn in the auto space.  She does not do this for her clients.

2016-12-19 DON'T BUY Gordon Reid

He doesn’t own the primary auto makers.  They are truly cyclical companies and you should buy them at high multiples and sell them at low multiples, as strange as that seems.  He prefers a derivative play like MG-T, or US parts manufacturers.  He thinks there are more legs to those stories.  They are also more involved in the aftermarket.

2016-11-03 COMMENT Barry Schwartz

Ford and General Motors have not been good investments in the past few years. Coming out of the 2008-2009 financial crisis GM, went bankrupt and cleaned up its balance sheet tremendously. Had record profits last year with another this year. The market doesn’t care. The same thing with Ford. Both are trading at around 6X earnings. He believes the market assumes that we are at peak car sales. Believes both companies can use gears on their balance sheets and income statements to grow earnings, whether through cost cutting or share buybacks. In the meantime, you earn a handsome dividend of about 5%, which probably will go higher.

2016-10-19 PARTIAL BUY John Stephenson

A good company to own. Of all the US automakers, this is the one that didn’t take any money during the financial crisis. However, we are kind of at "peak auto", and they are not going to put out that many more units in the 18 million that we have been doing in North America. A cyclical business, and we may be at the top and heading down. If he had to bet, this would probably be a decent way to go. You could buy a little bit and scoop your 5% yield, and just see if it hangs in there.

2016-08-22 DON'T BUY John Burke

He thinks good things happen when you buy cheap stocks.  On the other hand, buying the S&P500 is a flawed thesis.  He excludes the deep cyclical stocks like autos and airlines.  There are too many players.  He doesn’t want to own companies where there are that many operators.
