- The German Bundesrat has fired a warning shot across the automobile industry that is yet another indication that seismic changes could be coming down the road.
- In a vote intended to pressure the EU, the Bundesrat approved a measure to ban gas and diesel vehicles by 2030. The Bundesrat doesn't set policy across Europe, but is considered influential.
- Naturally, the fact that the push is coming from the home of Mercedes, BMW, and Volkswagen also adds a degree of intrigue to the news and the underlying electrification push out of the trio.
- Wall Street analysts with their 1-year price target mindset haven't weighed in on the development, but there's plenty of discussion on Seeking Alpha about the implications.

- U.S. auto sales are expected to show a decline of 2% to 5% for August amid a dialing back of discounting activity, according to the range of forecasts from Kelley Blue Book, Edmunds, J.D. Power, and LMC Automotive. General Motors is poised to report a loss of market share as its plan to cut out fleet sales impacts volume.
- Bloomberg estimates the seasonally adjusted selling rate for the month will be 17.2M, down from 17.9M last month.
- The sales dip isn't necessarily a bottom line drag for the sector due to reduced discounting and the increasing mix of higher-profit SUVs and trucks. But higher profit hasn't lifted automaker stocks this year, with the group having trouble gaining traction and trading with low forward PE multiples (GM 5.5, Ford 6.8, Honda 10.5, Toyota 10.9).
- Auto parts stocks (LEA, TEN, BWA, DAN, MPAA, CPS, DLPH, AXL, TOWR, ACW, FENX, MTOR, THRM, SMP, ALV, MOD, SRI) will be on watch tomorrow when the reports roll in as the sector frequently sees some extra volatility on days U.S. auto sales are disclosed.

- Major automakers are stealing the show this week at CES in Las Vegas off of some dreamy futuristic innovations, but are slumping in New York trading on some grounded reality. Detroit automakers Fiat Chrysler (FCAU -6%), Ford (F -3.4%), and General Motors (GM -2.8%) are all notably lower.
- U.S. auto sales increased 9% Y/Y in December, but were boosted by some extra discounting. Still, the higher mix of SUVs and premium trucks could help to make up for the year-end inventory clearing, note some insiders. Even accounting for discounting, pricing trends improved in December compared to a year ago, reports Kelley Blue Book.
- Looking ahead, the strong appeal of crossovers with millennials is seen as underpinning demand into 2016.
- There's been skittish trading across automobile related sectors. Earlier today, AutoNation rattled the auto retailer group with a warning, while auto parts stocks are down sharply once again - led by Federal-Mogul (FDML -5.8%), Stoneridge (SRI -5%), and Lear (LEA -4%).
Tue, Jan. 5, 11:31 AM
- Many auto parts stocks are trailing off after key manufacturers (Ford, GM, Toyota, Fit Chrysler) miss forecasts with their December U.S. sales reports. The sector bounced last month when the rosy predictions first started piling in.
- Weakness in China this week may be impacting sentiment on certain auto parts names as well.
- Decliners include Modine Manufacturing (MOD -4.9%), Federal-Mogul (FDML -5.1%), Stoneridge (SRI -3.8%), American Axle & Manufacturing (AXL -3.1%), Delphi Automotive (DLPH -2.3%), Autoliv (ALV -2.3%), Meritor (MTOR -3.4%), Gentherm (THRM -2.3%), BorgWarner (BWA -1.8%), and Lear (LEA -2%).
Dec. 23, 2015, 1:35 PM
- Auto parts stocks are solid outperformers on the day. The rally could be a reaction to estimates from TrueCar and Kelley Blue Book that showed U.S. auto sales popped in December. Both research firms predict a 13% Y/Y increase in sales for the month.
- Notable advancers include Meritor (MTOR +4.5%), Dana Holding (DAN +3.9%), BorgWarner (BWA +3.2%), Stoneridge (SRI +2.7%), Tenneco (TEN +2.3%), Federal-Mogul (FDML +2.8%), Delphi Automotive (DLPH +1.9%), Allison Transmission (ALSN +2.1%), and Johnson Controls (JCI +2.1%).

- The automobile parts sector is down again to follow a rout of European automaker stocks earlier in the day led by the dismantling of shares of scandal-ridden Volkswagen.
- Losing business from Volkswagen is one concern, but a broader issue could be tighter emissions testing and compliance protocols in the industry.
- Decliners include Tenneco (TEN -7.5%), Delphi Automotive (DLPH -4.3%), Allison Transmission Holdings (ALSN -4%), Federal-Mogul Holdings (FDML -4.4%), Lear (LEA -3.3%), Meritor (MTOR -3.8%), Dana Holding (DAN -3.7%), Autoliv (ALV -3.4%), Modine Manufacturing (MOD -2.8%), Standard Motor Products (SMP -2.3%), Stoneridge (SRI -3.6%), American Axle & Manufacturing (AXL -2.5%), and Johnson Controls (JCI -2.3%).
