    A broad rally in auto supplier stocks isn't a shocker after positive news piled in from across the globe. In Europe, a long slide in sales has finally reversed while China is opening up the western part of its territory for manufacturers. Just to top it off quite nicely, consumer sentiment rose briskly in the U.S. Advancers: American Axle (AXL) +4.5%, Dana Holding (DAN) +4.1%, TRW Automotive (TRW) +2.2%, Navistar (NAV) +4.4%, Federal-Mogul (FDML) +4.2%, Magna International +1.9%, Meritor (MTOR) +2%, Johnson Controls (JCI) +1.9%, Exide Technologies (XIDE) +5.5%.

    TRW Automotive (TRW +2.4%) rises after its Q1 report. The company was able to "mitigate the challenging automotive industry conditions in Europe" thanks to its "global footprint and highly diversified product and customer mix," CEO John Plant says. A Y/Y decline in operating income can be partially attributed to planned cost increases. TRW says Q2 and FY13 sales should be $4.3B and $16.6-16.9B respectively. Analysts see $4.2B and $16.68B. (PR)

    TRW Automotive (TRW +1.4%) trades up after its Q4 easily beat estimates earlier today. Net earnings actually fell 1.4% Y/Y however, partly due to restructuring and other charges, though the auto-parts maker surprised with higher revenue. Gross margin shrank to 10.5% from 11.3%.

    Shares of TRW Automotive (TRW +5.5%) pop after saying its German subsidiary, TRW Deutschland, has settled its antitrust suit with the U.S. Department of Justice. The company has agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy in restraint of trade involving sales of occupant safety products.

    Shares of a number of auto suppliers move higher with sector upgrades tipping sentiment. A rating boost by Jefferies on Oshkosh Truck (OSK +5.1%) to Buy from Hold and JPMorgan's initiation of TRW Automotive (TRW +3.7%) at Overweight leads the charge. A common theme with analysts is that improvement in commercial and construction markets will help offset defense-industry sluggishness. Sector gainers: BWA +2.5%, NAV +1.9%, FSYS +3.2%, FDML +2.6%, SMP +2.5%, GNTX +2.3%.
