  • Is There Still Life in Tesla?

    By Drew Stern - August 23, 2013 | Tickers: GM, TSLA

                While it's easy to dismiss the visionary company's questionable financials compared to a giant like BMW, which just released its competitor EV, Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) might still have what it takes to keep rising. Putting aside its smaller earnings and profit, its performance as a stock is almost unreal, and it could be stubborn to question it any longer. In a year it has climbed 397%, in five more »

  • Is Tesla the Next General Motors?

    By Daniel Cawrey - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TSLA

    Note: This article has better been modified to correct Tesla's IPO date.

    Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) went public on Jan. 28, 2010. It was the first American car company to go public since Ford Motors (NYSE: F) did in 1953. That's 57 years! Why did it take so long for there to be another publicly-traded American car company?

    The reason was probably because the car business is so more »

  • How Google Hopes to Disrupt the Auto Industry

    By Will Chavey - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: CTTAY, GM, GOOG, TM, VLKAY

    A couple of months ago, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) CEO Larry Page opined that driverless cars could “change our lives, give us more green space, mobility, fewer hours wasted. The average American spends 50 minutes commuting. Imagine if you got that back.”

    Of course, it’s easy to be skeptical of Google’s high aspirations. However, Google is not alone in touting the future of driverless cars. A General Motors (NYSE: GMmore »)

  • Energy drives the EV forward

    By James Danforth - August 17, 2013 | Tickers: CVX, XOM, F, GM, TSLA

    Gasoline prices inevitably rise

    Electric cars ("EV") inevitably become more efficient versus their gasoline counterparts. In 1970, I remember seeing the $0.29 per gallon price at the local gas station (as well as the mechanics!) :-) I also remember Dad's car got about 12 mpg. Today, $4.25 a gallon for gas is commonplace in my neighborhood and so are 30 mpg gasoline cars ("ICE"). Since Jan 1976, the more »

  • Expect More Upsides for Ford

    By Gaurav Basu - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: FIATY.PK, F, GM

    All news is good news for Ford (NYSE: F). It is making solid sales gains in the U.S. and seeing explosive growth in China. Demand for Ford cars is so heavy in the U.S. that the company is having a tough time keeping up with the demand. As the previously announced new capacity for the F-150 trucks and Fusion sedans come online in the third quarter, Ford will more »

  • Buy These Three Automakers

    By Adnan Riaz - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TM

    In the present volatile environment, some auto giants are performing extremely well. Every automaker has some unique drivers that make it attractive to customers. In this report, I am going to discuss three auto giants that performed very well in the first half of 2013, and there are some solid reasons they will continue the same momentum in the next six months.

  • 7 Things to Know about Battery Electric Vehicles

    By Pamela Peerce-Landers - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, HMC, NSANY.PK, TSLA

    Tired of spending $2,000 a year on gasoline? You may be interested in one of the Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV's) available in the US today. There are considerable differences in how various manufacturers are approaching this market which impact you, the buyer.

    I will compare the lowest trim offerings of 6 companies: Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F), General Motors Company (NYSE: GM), Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (NYSE: HMCmore »)

  • The Latest Economic Data Bodes Well For Auto Manufacturers

    By Ted Cooper - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TM

    According to Bloomberg, retail sales rose in July for the fourth straight month, suggesting that Americans now have more disposable income than they did to start the year. This bodes well for companies across the entire U.S. economy, but some benefit more than others.

    For instance, the improving balance sheets of American consumers has led to strong unit sales volumes at auto dealers in June and July. During the more »

  • Stop Being Wishy-Washy About the Auto Industry

    By Zain Abbas - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TM

    The Auto SAAR (Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate), which represents car sales figures, is a clear indicator of where the auto industry is heading into the future. Those who have been following the industry know very well that auto sales came in weaker than anticipated in both March and April, which sent bearish signals to the market. However, the industry saw a rebound in May. June sales have reinforced this idea more »

  • Tesla Is Not Done Just Yet

    By Matthew Hodapp - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TSLA

    Although Tesla's stock (NASDAQ: TSLA) has continued to rise after many investors thought its run was over, is this finally Tesla's last major run? Should investors pull out of Tesla now?  With the release of the Model S sedan, Tesla has undergone a 360% gain and many wonder if it has any growth left.  However, now we have to think of Tesla as a long term investment rather more »

  • The Newest Trend for Japan's Big 3

    By Will Chavey - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, HMC, NSANY.PK, TM

    Recently, I wrote about why I think General Motors (NYSE: GM)’s cost-cutting strategies will drastically improve its bottom line. Apparently, Japanese automakers agree. During the first half of 2013, each member of Japan’s “Big 3” announced plans to adopt strategies similar to those that GM recently began.

    What GM started

    Rival automakers Ford (NYSE: F) and Volkswagen actually headlined the movement, with Ford's cost-cutting measures set to more »

  • Why 2013 Looks Like a Good Year for the Auto Industry

    By Rahul Chattaraj - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TM

    U.S. automakers recorded strong July sales as consumers are replacing their old vehicles with newer models. Moreover, the demand for pickups is also strong. Top automakers enjoyed double-digit growth during the month as compared to the prior year period. In fact, Detroit-based Ford (NYSE: F) and Chrysler reported their best July sales since 2006. General Motors (NYSE: GM), Toyota Motor (NYSE: TM), and Honda reported the highest gains for more »

  • This Automaker Is a Buy Even at 52-Week Highs

    By Amal Singh - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: GM, TM, VLKAY

    General Motors (NYSE: GM) has cruised along nicely this year, with shares increasing by almost 30%. Its recently declared second-quarter results, and the expectation going forward suggest that there is still fuel in the tank, even though the stock is close to its 52-week high. Let us see what has been driving the automaker's growth and why it is set to climb higher.

  • As the Government Gets Out, What Should an Investor Do?

    By Mike Thiessen - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TM

    After years of struggling to make ends meet, North America's automobile companies are finally emerging from the basement. General Motors (NYSE: GM), Ford (NYSE: F) and Chrysler continue to turn profits on a consistent basis and have launched ambitious expansion drives that could remake the global automobile industry. Foreign automakers like Toyota (NYSE: TM) and Honda are also doing quite well. Given this momentum, it should come as no more »

  • 3 Reasons You Should Avoid This Stock

    By Brian Nichols - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TSLA

    After a 360% gain in 2013, you might have missed the boat on Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA). As of now, much of its valuation is based on future earnings, and with the stock trading higher by another 15% last week, I think there is a considerable amount of risk present. Therefore, let’s look at three specific problems that could put a damper on Tesla’s trend higher.

  • Repeat After Me: Tesla Is a Winner

    By Jayson Derrick - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TSLA

    Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) delivered very strong 2Q results, with non-GAAP EPS of 5 cents, which was substantially better than the consensus of a 19 cent loss. The earnings report provided fuel to the bull case and should have sent bears running for the hills.

    Demand is real

    Model S deliveries exceeded expectations demonstrating that demand remains robust. Deliveries of 5,150 came ahead of the 4,800 consensus, and more »

  • Coming in 2014: The First Electric BMW

    By Eileen Rojas - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: BAMXF, GM, TSLA

    BMW’s (NASDAQOTH: BAMXF) first electric car, the i3, is ready to roll off of the assembly line. In the second quarter of 2014, the car will go on sale in the U.S. with a price tag of $41,350, before tax and other incentives. For buyers interested in adding an optional gas motor to increase the car’s driving range, the price jumps to about $45,000. The more »

  • How Much EV Competition Does Tesla Have?

    By Alexander MacLennan - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: BAMXF, GM, TSLA

    It’s no secret that Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) has had quite a run since spring (and yet another run after earnings). Shares have more than quadrupled off their lows as production numbers beat expectations and the automaker’s Model S sedan remained popular. Much of this popularity stems from the sheer performance of the car, not necessarily the fact that it’s electric. Through this, Tesla has expanded the more »

  • Summer’s Hottest Industry & How to Profit with It

    By Ian Finney - August 11, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM, TM

    Detroit may be filing for Bankruptcy, but its main industry is doing the exact opposite. The automobile industry is exploding to near 2007 highs, and creating opportunities for investors to profit. While corporate earnings are slowing and the tech and banking industries are hitting a summer slowdown, nothing is decelerating the sale of new cars. Here are the three automobile stocks that are providing investors with summer profits.

  • Ford & GM: Cyclical or Not?

    By Matt Howard - August 9, 2013 | Tickers: F, GM

    A radical transition has occurred in just a few years in the automotive industry. Flashback to 2009, the year of a dramatic airplane landing in the Hudson, inauguration year, and the domestic automakers looked similar to the 1961 Ferrari GT California at the end of the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off. In other words, not good. General Motors (NYSE: GM) was bailed out and removed from the public markets more »
