Charles Sizemore, CFA and the brains behind the Sizemore Investment Letter, talks with Jeff Reeves of InvestorPlace.com about auto stocks and whether General Motors (NYSE:GM), Ford (NYSE:F), Toyota (NYSE:TM), Honda (NYSE:HMC) or Mercedes-maker Daimler (PINK:DDAIF) have anything to offer in 2013.
Charles’ assessment? There’s a lot of short-term potential thanks to the fact that they are priced for “the end of the world,” so that anything less than that in China and Europe is a good thing. Valuations are rock bottom for GM and Ford, based on forward earnings estimates, so now may be a good time to make a short- to medium-term trade.
But longer term, Charles worries that the American love affair with the auto may be done with and that sales will plateau.
