[Updated 09/14/2021] Will Toyota Motor’s stock slow down?

Toyota Motor Stock (NYSE: TM) has been hovering around the current range since June 2021 without a small dip in mid-August. The company has handled the global chip shortage better than its peers. This was demonstrated by the fact that Toyota Motor outsold General Motors

GM
in the United States for the first time ever by reporting sales volume of 688,813 compared to GM’s 688,236 in the April-June quarter. The previous week, the company announced that it would invest $13.6 billion in battery technology over the next decade, including a $9 billion investment in production. This indicates that the company is seriously considering adding electric cars to its lineup.

[Updated 11/19/2020] Toyota Motor Update

Having gained more than 28% since the lows of March 23, Toyota Motor Stock (NYSE: TM) is now only 5% up. TM’s stock fell from $111 to $142 from the recent low against the S&P 500 which moved 60%. The company has seen a steady increase in revenue over the past few years and its P/E multiple has increased. We believe the stock, after the recent rally, is close to near-term potential.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, Toyota Motor Corp, one of the world’s largest automakers, saw its revenue drop 26% in the first six months of the year compared to the same period of the previous year. In the second quarter of 2021 (ending September 2020), Toyota reported a profit of ¥225.21 while total revenue was recorded at 6.774 billion yen, down 11% year-on-year.

[Updated 06/26/2020] Looks like Toyota’s stock has reached the end of the road after its recent rally

Toyota Motor Stock (NYSE: TM) has rebounded more than 15% since its drop to $111 on March 23 to reach its current level of around $126. Notably, this compares to the 36% growth of the S&P 500 over the same period. We believe that Toyota now has limited upside potential. The key is that the company’s shares are up 12% from the end of fiscal 2019 (fiscal year ends March).

Part of this uptick in the past two years is helped by Toyota Motor’s revenue increase of about 5% from fiscal 2018 to fiscal 2020, but offset by the net profit margin, which increased from 8 .5% in 2018 to 6.9% in 2020. Earnings growth, per share, was lower at -9.8%, slightly offset by share buybacks. Specifically, the company invested about $12 billion in buyouts from 2018 to 2020, which resulted in a roughly 5% decline in shares outstanding. Although Toyota Motor had approximately $39 billion in cash at last report, we believe it will likely be difficult for the company to sustain this level of buybacks until the coronavirus pandemic situation becomes clear. .

Finally, Toyota’s P/E ratio fell from around 8x at the end of fiscal 2018 to 9x at the end of fiscal 2020 and has remained at this level for the past few months. In the current situation, the increase in Toyota’s multiple is limited compared to the levels observed in recent years.

Effect of coronavirus

The global spread of the coronavirus has led to lockdowns in various cities around the world, which has affected industrial and economic activity. This is likely to negatively affect consumption and consumer spending. More than 35% of Toyota’s total revenue comes from the United States region, which is hardest hit by the outbreak. Lower consumer spending and consumption would lead to lower demand for automobiles. These factors are sure to hurt Toyota’s revenue. We believe that Toyota’s results in the first quarter of 2021 will confirm the revenue trend, as the Americas and Europe will show negative growth. It is also likely to accompany a clearer Q2 as well as a forecast for FY21.

The actual recovery and its timing depend on the broader containment of the spread of the coronavirus.
