    Shares of Magna (MGA) fell 10.9% Friday on a weak Q2 earnings report, but Deutsche Bank reiterates at Hold with only a $2 haircut on its price target to $55 from $57. UBS says margin guidance issued by the firm will push consensus estimates lower, an expectation that may already be baked into the share price.

    "Ford's (F +1.3%) pricing and product momentum deserves a premium, not a discount," Citigroup says in upgrading shares to Buy from Neutral. Despite Citi's view that Ford would benefit from Japan-related pricing/share gains, the stock has dropped 10% YTD, underperforming the S&P and auto suppliers. Also, Citi downgrades parts supplier Magna (MGA -3.1%).

    After starting with a tool & die shop in a Toronto garage and building Magna (MGA) into an auto parts giant large enough to nearly buy out Chrysler and Opel, Frank Stronach announces his retirement as Chairman. "There’s only (3 Canadian firms) that really make a difference globally ... RIM, Bombardier and Magna."

    Germany's promise to provide state aid to GM's European arm Opel no longer applies after GM backed out of the Magna International (MGA)-led, government-backed deal to take over the carmaker, German Economy Minister Rainer Bruederle says. "GM Chairman Ed Whitacre has said that his company can handle Opel, so this means that agreements and pledges that were based on other concepts are moot."

    GM Europe chief Carl-Peter Forster - who assured the industry that the automaker would close its sale of Opel, just before GM said it was keeping the unit instead - is leaving the company. Forster was expected to run the independent Opel after the planned sale to Magna (MGA).

    Analysts say the decision to hold on to Opel makes strategic sense for GM, especially now that it has unloaded its bad assets in North America. Still, GM will need to push for a deeper restructuring of Opel than thwarted suitor Magna (MGA) had planned if it wants to revive the unit.

    German officials were outraged by GM's surprise decision to keep Opel, abandoning a long-expected sale to a Magna- (MGA) led group that the German government had agreed to back with €4.5B of state aid. GM said improving business conditions and the strategic importance of Opel had prompted the move, and expects restructuring Opel to cost about €3B.

    GM's board decides to restructure and keep Opel, undoing months of negotiations with a Magna- (MGA) led group. GM's board meeting came after the EU asked it to confirm it would still have sold Opel to Magna had it known the €4.5B in German aid would go to any buyer.
