Goodyear share price picks up, hedge funds back Goodyear

12th December 2018 | 0 Comments

Goodyear’s share price picked up by up to 1 per cent during early trading on 12 December 2018, having risen 0.56 per cent by the close of the previous session (up from $21.59 to $21.71). Considering that the value of these shares fell -8.70 per cent during the preceding seven-day period, and experienced a loss of -1.76 per cent over the past 30-day period suggests this is a significant uptick. In addition, when you compare this with the 1.5 per cent one-day drop all tyre majors experienced in October when Michelin warned that demand was softening, it appears that the share price is bouncing back.

Trending? Tyres and economic trends

Trending? Tyres and economic trends

2nd February 2017 | 0 Comments

The UK economy grew 0.6 per cent in the October-to-December period. Taking the year as a whole, the economy grew 2 per cent, 10 per cent slower than the growth of 2.2 per cent achieved in 2015. Good news, I hear you say. But, as with many things in life, the details tell a more complicated story. Many sources, such as the BBC, contend that this better-than-expected growth is because of increased consumer spending during the last quarter of the year. However, it is also worth pointing out that UK car production achieved a 17-year high in 2016, according to the latest figures published by SMMT. This comes at the same time that the motor manufacturer’s association reported new car registrations of just under 2.7 million for the year – itself another record. This being the case, it is worth taking a closet look at the figures and the messages give us in the inextricably linked tyre sector as well as the economy as a whole.

Analysts: Michelin financial results ‘light’, but cashflow good and dividend flat

12th February 2015 | 0 Comments

Following the publication of Michelin’s full-year 2014 results and 2015 guidance, some financial analysts described the figures as “light of expectations”. This, they said, was expected to lead to falls in Michelin’s share price in response. But the share price didn’t fall, in fact it was up about two cents by the time the markets close on 11 February, the day after the figures were announced.

An influx of imports is making the car tyre market even more competitive

An influx of imports is making the car tyre market even more competitive

6th February 2015 | 0 Comments

On 27 January the UK economy registered growth of 2.6 per cent in 2014. Of course it has not been the same across Europe, but with record new car registrations in the UK and 32 consecutive months of growth in that figure, you could be forgiven for asking why the UK tyre market came out as flat according to both the sell-in and sell-out measurements in 2014. At the same time it is important to set all this into its wider European context, something which this month’s analysis of the passenger car tyre market attempts to embark on.

Is Continental’s 4Q EBIT preview a low-level profit warning?

13th January 2015 | 0 Comments

Shortly after Continental AG pre-released its fourth quarter 2014 results at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday 12 January 2015, the company also previewed estimated fourth quarter pre-tax profits. The problem is that while the majority of the advance figures were broadly in line with expectations, the pre-tax profit (EBIT) figure wasn’t. So with this in mind it begs the question of whether Continental executives are preparing the market for a lower than expected result when the final figures are published on 5 March 2015.

8th December 2014 | 0 Comments

The tyre market in the Philippines is forecast to grow at a CAGR of about 13.85 per cent between 2014 and 2019, according to a report published by TechSci. The report suggests the growth will be fuelled by a growing vehicle parc, infrastructure development and growth-focused initiatives taken by the government. While two-wheeler tyres accounted for a majority of the market share in 2013, the NCR region remained the highest contributor in tyre sales due to a large population living in the region and rapid development in industries located in the region.
