Ford, GM Should Deliver Outsized Returns

Ford, GM Should Deliver Outsized Returns

By Thursday, 26 May 2016 08:47 AM Current | Bio | Archive

I recently gave my thoughts on Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) to US News and World Reports’ Lou Carlozo:

    “Ford and GM have both had excellent runs operationally,” says Charles Sizemore, a portfolio manager on Covestor and founder of Sizemore Capital Management in Dallas. “Sales have been robust and profits have followed. Yet Wall Street seems unduly pessimistic about their prospects going forward, pricing in pretty significant sales declines.”

    Another reason for the pessimism revolves around a bad accident that hasn’t even happened yet: skyrocketing interest rates.

    “Yes, rising interest rates — if they ever actually happen — are bad for auto sales, which depend on credit,” Sizemore says. “I get that. But if the economic outlook is as bad as the prices of auto stocks suggest, then U.S. stocks should not be trading at a Shiller price-to-earnings ratio of 26. So either investors are wrong about auto stocks — or they’re wrong about the rest of the market.”

I’m currently long both General Motors and Ford in my Dividend Growth portfolio and expect both to deliver outsized total returns in the year  ahead.
