With the recent policy statements about implementing carbon reduction policies from the Obama administration implementing carbon emissions by 85% by 2045 which directly addresses coal fired electrical generation plants, the next largest target to be regulated out of existence will be the petroleum industry. Natural gas is a no-brainer - as there is no other source of energy that will meet the stringent regulations imposed by carbon emissions reduction policies.

SMP deals in replacement parts for pro mechanics and do it yourselfers. People will be and have been holding on to cars longer, more talk of 100k and 150k cars in a household. Initial fear of electronics and computers is gone. Older cars being kept longer, newer cars not going to dealerships for repair.

Stock pursuit

Standard Motor Products (SMP) sells engine replacement parts. Maybe they should look into making gas cap locks to offset their temperature control parts that is being hurt by Chinese competition. First quarter revenue was up 4%. The stock trades for 8 times EPS and is up 45% since May.

Value play decided on by a bottoming screen I like to run using book value and price movements. Pick trades at less than 1 price/book and earnings growth is improving.

car part mfg, after market...with the economy the way it is, people will be fixing their cars, not so much buying new. This company has no employee's in China, and had a much higher high in the previous 52 weeks. I look for the upward trend to continue.

Recent bad earnings hammered this stock. 2008 will realize the benefits of their Global Sourcing initiatives including moving their Long Island, NY and Puerto Rico manufacturing initiatives to Mexico where labor costs are about 75-85% less.

this stock is trashed. huge volume down on bad quarter numbers. further downside risk minimized. This auto parts company should benefit from diminished new auto sales as folk have to keep their old clunkers running. okay, its a hunch...

Good value opportunity here. Production shifting to low cost areas (Mexico, Poland) will help company long-term, as China will be less of a competitive threat as their currency slowly appreciates vs. dollar and peso, and long term shipping costs from China continue to increase.

By providing replacement auto parts, SMP should outperform in a recession - look at the price chart for 2000-2003. Debt is high, but doesn't appear to be a bankruptcy threat. On that note, bankruptcy of other auto OEM's (Delphi, etc) should provide a new growth market for SMP.

People will always buy cars (and have to fix them), so a steady revenue stream is likely. And since IMHO SMP is making the right cost cutting moves (and the current price is near historical trendline lows), there could be excellent upside potential here.

undervalued oversold dividend paying small-cap

this company has a large family insider ownership. they are currently working through moving rebuildt parts to mexico to give them a cost advantage over china. will be adding this one for real. well ran automotive companies will always rebound.

Step into the batters box and watch this pitch: SMP's P/E and P/CF are both under 10 and it currently trades at book value EXCLUDING intangibles. Throw in a 4.8% dividend which does not appear to be in jeopardy and you've got a nice value AND income stock. I realize anything 'automotive' might be beat up in a recession, but SMP is already at a 52 week low and its 5 year history shows it rebounds near this price point every time. Also, remember they sell replacement parts, and I bet people in a recession will be repairing their vehicles rather than buying new ones, so SMP might do OK in rough times. Swing batter!!
