Demand for automobiles in the U.S. is expected to stay strong past this year, a development which should help boost sales for component makers in the industry. On the global front, China's automobile market is on track while Europe has probably bottomed out.  Some auto-related stocks to watch include Harman International Industries (HAR +4.6%), Methode Electronics (MEI +4.1%), Gentex (GNTX +1.8%), Delphi Automotive (DLPH +0.8%), and Johnson Control (JCI +0.9%).
