In the following video, Fool analysts Brendan Byrnes and Andrew Tonner discuss why auto-parts maker Borg Warner Automotive (NYSE: BWA) may be poised for a big run.
BorgWarner, a maker of turbochargers and dual clutch systems, has seen its share price get dragged down by a sluggish economy in Europe, where it does a lot of business.
But with a growing demand on auto manufacturers to produce more fuel-efficient vehicles, the company's future looks bright. The move to fuel efficiency will create a greater demand for turbochargers and other products BorgWarner makes, and the company is supplying those parts to just about every auto manufacturer. That means it can succeed no matter how well individual carmakers such as Ford (NYSE: F) or General Motors (NYSE: GM) do.
Borg Warner should also benefit from growth of car sales in China and India in years to come, Brendan says.
BorgWarner is a parts supplier that could be ready for big growth. But there are also opportunities in the automakers themselves. Ford has been performing incredibly well as a company over the past few years -- it's making good vehicles, is consistently profitable, recently reinstated its dividend, and has done a remarkable job paying down its debt. But Ford's stock seems stuck in neutral. Does this create an incredible buying opportunity, or are there hidden risks with the stock that investors need to know about? To answer that, one of our top equity analysts has compiled a premium research report with in-depth analysis on whether Ford is a buy right now, and why.
