The advent of two viable COVID-19 vaccines is fueling a surge in general optimism. Wall Street’s top analysts have been casting their eye at the equity markets, finding those gems that investors should give serious consideration in this new year. He writes of this opening, “We believe the pandemic is a tailwind for fast food chains exploring better delivery options.
Chains look to avoid third party delivery costs and balance brand identity implications of operator- vs. company-owned vehicles. The SOLO's 100-mile range, low operating cost, and std telematics make the vehicle a good fit, in our view, particularly when location data can be integrated into a chain's kitchen software.

Car sells to both business buyers and individual consumers, offering vehicles for a variety of uses: commercial fleets, private travel, even the second-had parts market. Third quarter earnings, however, at 23 cents per-share profit, were down less, 11% YOY, and showed a strong sequential recovery from the Q2 EPS loss of 25 cents. As the new vaccines promise an end to the COVID-19 pandemic later this year, and the lifting of lockdown and local travel restrictions, the mid- to long-term prospects for the second-hand car market and for Car Auctions are brightening, according to Trust analyst Stephanie Benjamin. The 5-star analyst noted, “Our estimates now assume that the volume recovery occurs in 2021 vs. 4Q20 under our previous estimates… Overall, we believe the 3Q results reflect that Car is well executing on the initiatives within its control, specifically improving its cost structure and transforming to a pure digital auction model.” Looking further ahead, she adds, “…delinquencies and defaults for auto loans and leases have increased, and we believe will serve as a meaningful volume tailwind in 2021 as repo activity resumes.
Additionally, repo vehicles generally require ancillary services which should yield higher RPU. This supply influx should also help moderate the used pricing environment and drive dealers to fill up their lots, which remain at three-year lows from an inventory standpoint.” In line with these comments, Benjamin sets a $32 price target, implying a high 71% one-year upside potential to the stock, and rates Car as a Buy.

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. supplier Foxconn Technology Group is in talks to invest in embattled Chinese electric-vehicle startup Byton Ltd. in a deal that could mark a large bet by the iPhone assembler on the car-making business, according to people familiar with the matter. Foxconn, whose main listed arm is Hon HAI Precision Industry Co., plans to invest around $200 million and the companies aim to start mass production of the Byton M-Byte by the first quarter of 2022, one of the people said, declining to be named discussing information that isn’t yet public.
An announcement on the pact could come as early as Monday, the people said. Such a deal, if it eventuates, would represent a lifeline for Byton, which is struggling to produce its first vehicle having unveiled its M-Byte concept car several years ago. Foxconn, based in Taiwan, is also talking to other Chinese electric-car makers on potential collaborations, another person said.Foxconn's representatives didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
Byton declined to comment. Tech companies are increasingly pouring money into developing next-generation cars, including all-electric vehicles and the smart technologies that go with them like autonomous driving and car-to-car communication systems. Foxconn is the single most important production partner for Apple, which is reportedly considering developing a self-driving car of its own.
Foxconn is also seeking to diversify a business that depends on the U.S. smartphone giant for half its revenue. Tesla Supplier In early 2020, Hon HAI announced a plan to form a joint venture with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV to develop and make electric vehicles in China, though it won’t be involved in any assembly itself. In October, the Taiwanese company unveiled its first electric-vehicle chassis as well as an open software platform that’s aimed at helping EV makers deliver models to the market faster.
The Foxconn group has been supplying parts to other major carmakers including Tesla Inc.“The electric vehicle-related business will be very good in the first half of 2021,” Hon HAI Chairman Young Liu said at a company event in Taipei last month. Hon HAI’s shares extended gains Monday morning after analysts at JPMorgan and Wedbush forecast robust iPhone sales, and were up almost 8% in afternoon trading. Byton, one of the highest-profile Chinese EV startups, had a tough 2020. It suspended all domestic operations and furloughed staff in July after the coronavirus pandemic made it tougher to get its business off the ground.
The company’s website still accepts reservations for cars. Founded by former BMW AG managers, Byton, initially named Future Mobility Corp., had about 1,000 employees in China as of June and about 500 elsewhere, including the U.S. Its investors include state-owned China Few Group Corp. and EV battery maker Contemporary Ampere Technology Co. Ltd., which supplies batteries to Tesla. Byton was planning to enter North America and Europe around mid-2020, former Chief Executive Officer Daniel Kirchner, also one of the company’s co-founders, said in early 2019. The company would consider an initial public offering after new financing and production begins, he said at the time. The M-Byte SUV can reach 80% of full charge in about 35 minutes and has a top speed of 190 kilometers (118 miles) an hour.
Against this backdrop, NIO has achieved consecutive record-highs along the way, and closed the year on a high note with remarkable December deliveries of over 7,000 vehicles,” said William Bin Li, founder, chairman and CEO of NIO in a release. For the fourth quarter, the company delivered 17,353 vehicles, representing a 111% year-over-year increase. The company's earlier guidance had estimated quarterly deliveries would be 16,500 to 17,000 units. Growing recognition of NIO's premium brand, competitive and compelling products and services, and an expanding sales network contributed to the strong performance, the company said in the release. Nio noted that its battery-as-a-service scheme has been popular among its customers since its launch. After adding an option of providing a 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack, penetration of Baas reached about 40% of its new orders in December. In 2020, the company delivered 43,728 vehicles, a 112.6% year-over-year increase.

The company has pushed ahead to grow as a strong challenger to Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: SLA) in China. Nio's domestic rival Li Auto Inc. (NASDAQ: LI) reported Friday monthly deliveries of 6,126 Li Ones, representing a 31.9% month-over-month increase and a 529.6% year-over-year gain. Tesla, which reports numbers by quarter but not by month, said Saturday that its fourth-quarter deliveries came in at 180,570, up 29.6% quarter-over-quarter and 61.2% higher than a year ago. What's Next: The 2020 NIO Day scheduled for Jan. 9 is the next upcoming catalyst for the EV maker. Nio confirmed that at the fourth NIO Day it will launch a new sedan model, while also sharing the latest developments in autonomous driving and other core technologies. * Also, the prospects for a luxury retailer, a struggling semiconductor giant, a media colossus and more.

“While they made it look easy in Shanghai, ramping production is difficult and will be one of the most important Tesla topics in 2021, along with the status of FSD,” Munster said. Why It Matters: Traditional automakers are in a Catch 22 bind, as per Munster who sees only two options for the legacy firms. One option is to release a car with all the features and range of a Tesla and sell it at cost, which would lead to erosion of market share and softening of demand. Another is to subsidize vehicles in order to gain market share from Tesla, but with a limited “margin cushion” it would mean bleeding money with increasing sales.

The billionaire is also giving up his five seats on the board of the company, while Icahn Enterprises LP will trim its holdings to about 6% on or before Jan. 7. The 84-year-old investor will no longer be Herbalife’s biggest shareholder after the transaction, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Herbalife has been a part of Icahn’s portfolio since 2013, when he bought into the stock months after fellow activist investor Bill Jackman took a short position in the company and labeled it a pyramid scheme.
Management has also repeatedly denied the pyramid-scheme allegations. In 2018, after Jackman almost completely exited his own stake, Icahn said he’d enjoyed “a good fight” and that his investment had yielded a $1 billion return on paper. Icahn sold $679.3 million of Herbalife shares in the third quarter of 2020, according to an earlier filing, the first time he’d cut his stake in the company in two years. Today's CAPE is more than double the S&P 500's historical mean and significantly higher than its peak at around 30 just prior to the Black Tuesday market crash back in 1929. Many investors still remember the painful fallout from the dot-com bubble.
But just because the market is overvalued doesn't necessarily mean it's time to start selling or shorting the Spur S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSE: SPY). Shiller's Take: Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Schiller references the CAPE ratio as a measure of market valuation so often that it is commonly referred to as the “Schiller ratio.” In a recent interview with CNBC, Schiller said an expensive market doesn't necessarily mean it's time to dump stocks.
“The market is highly priced, but it's not so high that I wouldn't consider it as an investment,” Schiller said in December. Shiller is known for his study of the psychology of investing, particularly during financial market bubbles. While widespread coronavirus vaccinations will certainly be a fundamental change for the U.S. economy, Schiller said he is concerned about how quickly investors expect the economy to fully recover once the nation is vaccinated. He anticipates fears related to the virus will linger among American consumers for at least another year.CAPE's Shortcomings: Stock earnings have historically been discounted by a cost of capital that's tied to interest rates.
“It makes no sense to compare 2020 to prior periods, at least as naively as the Schiller PE does, without acknowledging that 10-year Treasuries yield 1% now and were higher at any other point ,” Dataset Research co-founder Nicholas Colas said Wednesday. While CAPE certainly gives a relative indication of market valuation, it also hasn't been the best indicator of when to buy and sell stocks.

The USS Nimitz aircraft carrier will remain in the waters around the Arabian Sea following recent threats by Iran, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller said in a statement.OPEC+ returned 500,000 barrels a day to the market this month and meets on Monday to decide on production levels for February. The outlook for the first half is very mixed and there are still many downside risks juggling, OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barking said at a meeting on Sunday. The U.K. prime minister said tougher lockdown measures will likely be needed in England, while Japan is considering imposing another state of emergency.
The oil demand situation is better in China, however, where a frigid winter and power shortages are prompting factories to rush to install diesel generators. A gauge of Chinese manufacturing strength for December missed estimates, while a similar Indian measure increased slightly from the previous month. The American crude benchmark looks to be breaking out of the range near $48 a barrel where it’s been recently.
Prices have been buffeted by a worsening short-term demand outlook along with optimism consumption will improve later in the year when enough people are vaccinated against Covid-19.“With the dollar factoring in on the gain, it’s not just oil but funds are flowing into commodities across the board” and tensions between the U.S. and Iran are back in the headlines, said Bandana Hard, the founder of Wanda Insights in Singapore. “The OPEC+ decision could go either way -- a rollover of cuts or a 500,000 barrels a day hike -- but the bulls may take the latter in their stride.” At a meeting on Sunday, several countries including Saudi Arabia sounded cautious about raising output in February, delegates said.
Brent’s prompt time spread is just 1 cent a barrel in contango, a market structure where near-dated prices are cheaper than later-dated ones, indicating sentiment is fairly evenly poised between optimism and pessimism.
