Nissan (NSANY) and Renault (RNSDF) will eventually lose a common thread when CEO Carlos Ghosn leaves the automakers.

Analysts are somewhat split on how a post-Ghosn scenario will unfold. Some see a risk as the "cement" that keeps the alliance between the two is removed, while others think the automakers are so tightly aligned that they can survive Ghosn's departure.
