5 automotive stocks for 2021
1. General Motors GM has always been a fan favorite for investors. The shares have sold 17% in the past 3 months, making them even cheaper. GM has a front P / E of just 8.2. Is it high on Dave’s list?
2. Ford F is also a fan favorite and it is also inexpensive, with a forward P / E of 8. It has also sold in the last 3 months, dropping 15%. It’s time to buy ?
3. Ferrari RACE stocks have gone the other way, up 5% in the past 3 months. This luxury car maker will soon launch its highly anticipated SUV. With a forward P / E of 46, is it too hot to manage or priced for growth?
4. Tesla TSLA is one of those actions that you either love or hate. While stocks have only risen 5% since the start of the year, they have risen 22% in the past 3 months. It’s the most expensive of the automakers, with a forward P / E of 145. But if you believe the argument that this is really a “tech company”, has the valuation of importance ?
5. AAP Advanced Auto Parts take advantage of the fact that people keep their cars even longer and get them repaired, rather than buying a new car at these record high prices. It is trading with a futures P / E of just 17.5, making it one of the cheapest auto stock games this year.
