He wouldn't invest in any automotive company, because we are already running ASAR (a seasonally adjusted rate of production) in the US of 16 or 17 million vehicles. Your best-case scenario to get to 18 million vehicles is extremely limited. We’ve also seen producers do a lot of subprime financing in order to place cars, which implies they have had to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find demand.

They will tell you that everyone was cheating but he talked to the other OEMs who said there was no way they were cheating. He wants to invest in great businesses run by great people. He cannot say this for VW so has a hard time investing. He can’t get around their corporate governance.

It is on his radar. It has been hurt badly, although the core business is still quite good. It is in Europe and valuations there are better than in North America. It looks like auto manufacturing has peaked for this cycle. This will be number one on his list for the next cycle.

He sold it a few years ago. BMW has said one of their sport utility vehicles does not meet standards. He would avoid the sector right now. Two Canadian auto parts makers make almost nothing for VW and may be worth looking at.

It is a screaming avoid. There are so many opportunities in the market. Don’t try to catch this falling knife. There is obviously some internal cancer inside this company. It had to be a broad group of management involved. If it happens to recover, then so be it.

He wonders how long before you start to see inflation. Germany did so well, but it was on the back of a lot of Asian, particularly Chinese, demand for German car products. It could go higher or it could go lower, but there is an internal structure around costs and currency, so he would stay away.

Prefers Tata (TTM-N), which has Range Rover, Jaguar, trucks and buses all through the subcontinent in a huge way. Volkswagen is really interesting because of the China operations. They are the largest foreign manufacturer of vehicles in China. It has some potential but is so big. They have been turning it around. Have done some acquisitions that just haven’t gotten going.

There has been a big improvement in auto sales in North America, but looking forward, he likes this because you are getting exposure to the strength you are seeing in North America, but also, to European auto sales, which remain at 20 year lows. He is expecting some pretty good growth. They also have emerging-market growth. Have the biggest market share of any auto company in China.

The argument for this one is that the environment looks pretty good. Big sales in China and US sales are ramping up. The fleet is getting old, some say 13-14 years. Asia is a very important place to be. When he analyzed balance sheets he bought Tata (TTM-N) and Ford (F-N). They will all break out and do better. Wait for a pull back.

Had a long, drawn-out process when they were trying to buy Porsche. Thinks the lawsuit is still out there but generally they own it and it is part of their business. This is a very important part as it has very high margins. Not expensive at 6.7X earnings with a 3.5% yield. Have lots of cash in the balance sheet, part of which will be used to help buy out some of the positions they don’t own. Very small market share in the US of about 5.1%, which they should try to increase. Europe has been a very difficult environment for them. Good story.

(On the German exchange.) A real back and forth between VW and Porsche. This creates uncertainties. Their product is extremely good and their opportunities in emerging markets are fantastic. Would rather own their supplier. (See Top Picks.)

(Volkswagen on the German exchange.) Rather than buying European stocks on your own, you are better off with an ETF that covers Europe. Also be aware of the currency issues.
