VW to invest in Ford-backed Argo AI at $7B valuation, Bloomberg reports

Volkswagen (VWAGY) plans to invest in Ford's (F) driverless car partner Argo AI at a valuation of roughly $7B as the two car makers expand an alliance established earlier this year, Bloomberg's Christoph Rauwald and Keith Naughton report, citing people familiar with the matter. In addition to backing the Ford affiliate, the German automaker will fold its Audi (AUDVF) unit's Autonomous Intelligent Driving business into Argo, the authors note. Reference Link

JMP Securities keeps Outperform rating on Tesla after driving Audi e-tron
After test driving and analyzing the Audi e-tron, which marks Volkswagen's (VWAGY) first fully electric small SUV, JMP Securities analyst Joseph Osha said the test drive left him impressed but he also thinks "VW is late to the EV market and it shows." The e-tron is heavy, "slow by EV standards," and Osha said he thinks the weak range and performance are likely to limit sales for this version of the vehicle. Following the e-tron try-out, Osha reiterated his Outperform rating and $369 price target on Tesla shares, adding that he feels his 90,500 unit target for Tesla's Q2 shipments "is secure" based on early data.

Outperform
Volkswagen initiated with an Outperform at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Tom Narayan started Volkswagen with an Outperform rating and EUR 202 price target. The analyst rolled out coverage on the European Autos group with a positive bias on car makers and a more cautious view on suppliers. While acknowledging near-term cyclical pressures, Narayan says the market is valuing Daimler, Renault and VW with no terminal value. His positive view on the car makers is supported by his firm's survey work which suggests strong consumer demand for electronic vehicles and a willingness to pay more.

Credit Suisse starts Tesla at Underperform, sees 'niche automaker'
Credit Suisse analyst Dan Levy last night initiated coverage of Tesla (TSLA) with an Underperform rating and $189 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 49c to $219.27. While Tesla currently leads in areas that will likely define the future of car making, the company faces "risks ahead" and is "likely to settle as a niche automaker," Levy tells investors in a research note. Volkswagen's (VWAGY) "strong push" on electric vehicles highlights the competition Tesla faces from larger, better capitalized players, according to the analyst. He believes Tesla lacks the same scale as other automakers and that the company has struggled with the basic "processes" of the auto industry. If Tesla can't maintain "healthy" margins, then its edge in the differentiating aspects of the auto business will be a "moot point," says Levy.

Ford to begin pivot to battery electric vehicles this year, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas noted that Ford (F) does not currently sell any battery electric vehicles, or BEVs, but he thinks this is about to change, noting that the company will unveil a Mustang-inspired all-electric BEV later this year and is developing a BEV F-150 truck. He also believes Ford's ongoing strategic partnership discussions with Volkswagen (VWAGY) will give it an opportunity "to close the BEV gap," he tells investors. Jonas, who said a pivot to BEVs could be a risk to Ford's near-term earnings but a longer-term positive for the stock, keeps an Equal Weight rating and $10 price target on Ford shares.

Credit Suisse bullish on Ford, initiates with an Outperform
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Dan Levy initiated Ford with an Outperform rating and $13 price target. The analyst acknowledges that Ford faces a number of risks ahead, as it redesigns its business to address profitability, while concurrently pursuing a longer-term reimagining of the business. Yet he sees upside for the stock, as there have been early signs of improvement with more to come.

Audi e-tron underscores difficulty in catching up with Tesla, says UBS
After Audi (AUDVF) launched its e-tron SUV in San Francisco yesterday, UBS analyst Patrick Hummel said it is a "well-made car" but fails to set new benchmarks in the premium EV segment. The e-tron "underscores that catching up with Tesla is more difficult than expected by many," Hummel tells investors. Audi didn't provide much detail on profitability, but made it clear that more scale is required to be profitable, which plays into Tesla's hands and into the hands of the emerging local EV players in China, added Hummel. However, he believes a Sell rating on Tesla (TSLA) is still valid since he does not think the company will create enough Model 3 demand at the price point of over $50,000 that he believes would be needed to meet 2019 consensus expectations.

E-tron may not be 'Tesla killer,' but still a 'real risk,' says Vertical Group
After attending Audi's (AUDVF) launch event for its e-tron SUV, Vertical Group analyst Gordon Johnson said he sees Audi's foray in the EV space as "a real risk" to Tesla (TSLA) and other EV auto makers including Chevy (GM) and Ford (F). The Electrify America charging network, owned by a JV of Audi parent Volkswagen (VLKAY) and funded by "Dieselgate," positions Audi's fast-charging ambitions among the most robust, if not the most robust, in the U.S. currently, added Johnson. He does not see Audi's forthcoming e-tron as a "TSLA Killer," but does not "see it a stretch to think of it as a potential TSLA Model X killer," he concludes in his note to investors. Johnson keeps a Sell rating on Tesla shares.
