+ Watch TM
on My Watchlist
With its sedans perennially among the top 10 sellers, Toyota Motors makes and sells a full line of vehicles.
lack of innovation
I'm just guessing.
I think people are going to start buying cars again
TM has paid out a dividend of $1.75505 CAPS seems to have this wrong, and so does Yahoo, but dividend.com says the have an annual payment of $3.23. This also seems wrong, since TM seems to have paid $1.9556 on 2014-03-28.In fact having checked several sites I was disappointed in the TM div history on all. They do seem to pay bi-annually, so I'll assume this payment to be so.Div. (Yield) $3.51 (2.5%)Current Yield . . . . . . 4.7%
Leader in their sector with a high quality product
A once in a lifetime value investing opportunity here. The market is overly concerned with a recall that makes TM no less reputable than GM ( which is also facing poor publicity from recalls). Regardless, TM has demonstrated consistent, strong historic earnings and is currently priced at 70% of its Graham number valuation in comparison to peers. Coupled with a solid dividend, there is at least a 40% upside to this wonderful company. A fair market valuation of its stock is $160 per share. NOTE: The Motley Fool's listed price to earnings ratio is incorrect. TM is currently priced at a PE of 9.8.

Once Tesla brings out their Model E which will be priced in the $30s Prius is done.
I love my new Tacoma! My previous two Toyotas were rock solid. Toyota makes great vehicles.
An industry leader with room to grow and capital to do it.
Toyota has everything it could want. Strong profits, top vehicles and an expanding market. With the Yen going down and the dollar up they will be making even more with the conversion rate.
best in class, hybrids
Deteriorating product quality (recalls), global slowdown, Hyundai/Kia.I think Korea just might be the new Japan.
Toyota's European division expectes sales to be higher than 822,000 units sold previous yr forcasts reaching a 4.4% share of the market from 4.2% in 2011 Aim to reach 5.- 5.5% by 2015 or 2016
Toyota is investing heavily in alternative fuel vehicles, which I expect will be a growing industry in the coming decade.
Toyota suffered setback after setback due to the tsunami, the earthquake, and the strength of the yen recently. As they shift manufacturing to different locations around the world, including the US, the cost competitiveness will once again be a key advantage. Operationally, Ford and other players have caught up to an extent, but Toyota's vehicles are far more popular around the world, including 3 in the top 10 best-sellers. No one thought the Prius would become as mainstream as it has, and it shows the company's still a step ahead of the rest in pushing the envelope in fuel efficiency. They just launched a car sharing program in Japan as well. Overall, I think there could be global overcapacity and the auto sector is going to have some losers, much like we've seen in Europe, but Toyota's probably the best-positioned.
