After Morgan Stanley published a report on the potential beneficiaries from infrastructure spending, analyst Armintas Sinkevicius called American Axle (AXL) the supplier with the greatest direct exposure to pick-up trucks and believes it should receive an outsized benefit from any infrastructure spending increase. He named American Axle his top pick in the U.S. Autos & Shared Mobility sector, stating that after the first quarter he expects volumes to improve at General Motors (GM), launch costs to fade and for synergies to provide margin expansion and free cash flow generation. As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas upgraded General Motors to Overweight from Equal Weight this morning, also citing the potential benefits of increased U.S. infrastructure spending.
