    WABCO Holdings (WBC +0.9%) says it's been granted a license by Chinese authorities to re-manufacture air compressors in China for commercial and off-highway vehicles. The company's Reman Solutions is currently re-manufacturing air compressors locally for China National Heavy Truck Corporation and for the independent aftermarket in China, and it hopes to expand to add other products, subject to government approvals.

    WABCO Holdings (WBC) gets an upgrade to Buy from Neutral at Goldman (PT $89 from $83). There's quite a bit to like here apparently as analyst Jerry Revich says new product sales are "accelerating," margins are expanding, "compares are favorable," and freight volumes are improving. SA contributor Gregory Vousvounis agrees, calling WBC "a classic example of a focused wide-moat company that excels in its markets and grows in double digits over time."

    More Chinese companies are popping up in Detroit as they prepare for the eventuality of a major Chinese auto manufacturer selling cars in the U.S. For the most part, the firms are flying under the radar, but the numbers are starting to swell. The Detroit Chinese Business Association now has over 100 Chinese-owned businesses in its membership with the largest percentage geared toward supplying the automobile industry. It's a trend to watch for auto suppliers (AXL, ARMH, ALV, BWA, CLC, DAN, FDML, GNTX, JCI, MGA, TEN, TRW, WBC) used to having a home field advantage with the Big Three automakers.

    Many U.S. firms are cash rich abroad but cash poor at home, and the SEC worries they aren’t presenting investors with an honest appraisal of their liquidity. “That doesn’t mean they could suddenly run out of money to pay their bills," WSJ's Kate Linebaugh writes. "But it does mean there could be unseen limits on their ability to pay dividends and buy back shares."

    A comment from Australia's top bank regulator that the country's lenders have enough funding for months may be meant to reassure, writes Cynthia Koons, but it's like an airplane pilot saying he has enough fuel for a few more hours. Aussie banks are unusually dependent on overseas funding, and are thus impacted directly by EU stress. WBC +1.5% YTD.

    WABCO Holdings (WBC +6.5%) trades up after releasing mixed Q4 results but raising guidance for FQ1. Piper Jaffray upgrades the shares on the report, saying the new guidance range is based on a market-wide contraction of 10%-15% in Europe, and for management to release in-line guidance under those conditions speaks volumes about its confidence in other regions.
