Game Autos with Parts Makers?

Monday, 2 Aug 2010 | 6:22 PM ET

Auto stocks were on a tear Monday, led by sharp gains in Borg Warner after Citi and Barclays raised the stock's price target.

Will we see continued gains in the auto space Tuesday after the July sales results come out?

Auto Preview

Analysts surveyed by Reuters expected an average annualized sales rate of 11.4 million vehicles in July, up slightly from 11.1 million in June and 11.2 million a year earlier.

Economic Malaise: Auto Parts Makers
Auto parts stocks rise ahead of sales results. Insight with Itay Michaeli, Citi analyst.

Forecasts for July range from 11.1 million to 12.1 million vehicles.

Barclays Capital analyst Brian Johnson said that the pace of vehicle sales improved markedly in July, easing some doubts about the strength of a recovery that emerged after slower-than-expected auto sales in the previous three months.

Year-over-year comparisons are tougher in July because the U.S. government's "cash for clunkers" program that started the last week of July 2009 and ran through the first three weeks of August drove sales sharply higher a year earlier.

Sales have been in a gradual recovery since the last quarter of 2009, moving a sales rate of 10.7 million in that period to 11 million in the first quarter and then 11.3 million in the second quarter

What’s the trade?

I’ve got Goodyear on my radar, explains Brian Kelly.

I’m look at Johnson Controls, says JoeTerranova.
