+ Watch TM
on My Watchlist
With its sedans perennially among the top 10 sellers, Toyota Motors makes and sells a full line of vehicles.
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.
Falling yen rising Japanese stocks
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.
Leverage working against all automakers in recessionary environment.
When it comes to product, they are way ahead of American auto makers in terms of quality and innovation.
I seriously doubt that cars will go out of style.
The strong yen hurts TM even though a lot of their assembly plants are not in Japan. They will keep some production in Japan due to social pressure and that hurts them versus Korean companies. Also, they will be hurt by the recession in Europe.
Yes, and Will gain again
I invested in this stock, as the price was artificially low due to the tsunami and natural disaster that affected the production and distribution of Toyota Automobiles. When i invested the plants were back to full production and i believed this would bring the stock back to its original highs
Best affordable cars on the market IMO.
This is tracking porfortlio of the the 20 stock I pick for 2012...
Coming back on line after the damage done by the tsunami, rolling out new models, things generally looking up for a company with fantastic brand loyalty. As the economy improves, Toyota fans will finally replace their ageing Corollas and Camrys with new ones.
"When trade times are measured in microseconds, but business value is generated over years, there's a very real potential for a huge gap to open between a stock's price and a company's value. It's by looking for and exploiting those gaps -- and then waiting for the short-sighted computers to catch up with the long term reality -- that you have an edge over today's high tech traders.One straightforward way to find such opportunities is to look for profitable companies that the market has discarded as being worth more dead than alive..."(Excerpt from a draft CAPScall article with estimated publication date of 29-DEC-2011)
Just got a job selling Toyotas (yeah, my career has fallen...but I'm satisfied). Though I've never owned a "foreign" car (just found out Toyota only manufactures 40% of its cars in Japan, and half of those are sold in Japan), I am honestly impressed with the safety of these automobiles. Such an easy sell to a family who should be interested in that. This company has a commitment to such, and as we've historically seen from strong companies, adversity will only make them better. And they've had a lot over the past few years. Buying low!!
Please do not buy this based on my opinion! Im just playing the game, Im barely literate! my too cents tho, monster company down on its luck! these are the companies I like to gamble on! I personally think their cars are ugly and boring, but alot of others seem to be loyal to them, so lets see what happens!
