EPA aims to finalize MPG rules ahead of Trump presidency, Detroit News says

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is rushing to quickly finish stringent gas mileage regulations that force car makers to produce car and truck fleets to average over 50 MPG by 2025 before president-elect Donald Trump assumes office, the Detroit News reports. The new regulations, known as Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards, are subject to review by April 2018, by EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy wants the agency to issue a final verdict to keep the rules in place after taking comments until December 30, the report says. Publicly traded companies in the space include Daimler AG (DDAIF), Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Ford (F), General Motors (GM), Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY).

Autos and Autos Parts sector downgraded to Cautious from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst David Tamberrino downgraded the Autos and Auto Parts sector to Cautious from Neutral saying the US Auto cycle peaked in 2015 and is being held up by increasing OEM incentives. The analyst said OEM earnings will decline in 2017/2018 as negative pricing and lower production pressure North American results, but expects suppliers' earnings to hold up longer. The analyst sees upside to Delphi (DLPH) and Harman (HAR) given exposure to secular growth areas and upside to Goodyear Tire (GT) given secular HVA tire growth. Tamberrino downgraded Lear (LEA) to Sell citing elevated expectations and valuation, cut BorgWarner (BWA) to Neutral on valuation, downgraded Tesla (TSLA) to Neutral on execution risk and capital deployment, and upgraded AutoNation (AN) to Neutral given a more defensive business.

Analyst Brett Hoselton says that the company's acquisition of Metaldyne (MPG) does not appear to have accomplished its goals of diversifying its geographic focus and its customer base. Additionally, the analyst expects the company to be hurt by slowing light vehicle production growth in North America and its loss of 25% of the GM (GM) replacement business.

General Motors downgraded ahead of a US auto cycle peak at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded General Motors to Neutral from Buy. Analyst John Murphy believes the peak of the US auto cycle is approaching which will keep a "lid" on the stock. Murphy said the incremental boost from leasing represented more than 30% of industry new vehicle sales and incentive levels appear elevated and lease residual assumptions appear to be more aggressive. Additionally, he believes the mix benefit, volume, and raw material tailwinds could reverse at some point. Murphy lowered General Motors' price target to $37 from $43.

Evercore ISI analyst George Galliers upgraded Fiat Chrysler to Buy from Sell, making the case that there is "no CEO who gives greater consideration to shareholder value" among those running automakers than Sergio Marchionne. Among the many other reasons he gives for his upgrade, Galliers notes that FCA is not exposed to financial services, and associated credit risk, in the U.S. and he believes it is less exposed to the low-margin and under-pressure passenger car segment. The analyst raised his price target on Fiat Chrysler shares to EUR10 from EUR6.

Navistar 'making progress' on turnaround, says Wells Fargo
After Navistar reported weaker than expected results but reiterated its full-year guidance, Wells Fargo says that "some" of Navistar's "more severe risks appear to be fading." The firm says that Navistar's deal with Volkswagen (VLKAY) will reduce its liquidity risk, but Wells thinks that Navistar's end market continues to be "weak." The firm raised its price target range on the stock to $17-$20 from $11-$14 but keeps a Market Perform rating on the shares.
