Analysis: Auto Parts Stocks Should Recover in 2018

Jan. 11, 2018—While last year was nothing to write home about for auto-parts retailers—considering highly regarded stocks such as O’Reilly Automotive's declined as much as 14 percent—analysis from the Associated Press suggests that parts stocks are likely to recover in 2018.

The parts sector appears set for a comeback in the following year due to several factors. A combination of the Trump Administration’s tax bill, improving economic growth, improvement in the jobs market, and moderating growth in gas prices should lead to relative improvement in miles driven, the Associated Pressnoted.

Another positive for the parts world: the average age of a car in the U.S. keeps increasing.

Ultimately, the new year could very well improve investor sentiment toward the Advance Auto Parts and Genuine Parts Company’s of the automotive world.

The long-term outlook remains positive for the sector, and impacts from online outlets like Amazon are likely overstated, the Associated Press wrote.

      We are setting up this topic to share information on any impact the current COVID-19 virus has on the auto parts industry. Sourcing, distribution, parts availability, and business impact. General questions and sharing of knowledge are welcome.
      The WHO has designated this a global pandemic that is already affecting many industries, including most sectors in the automotive industry. Corporate and Independent automotive parts stores are being impacted by repair shop businesses slowing down. As you know, many parts come from China and other parts of the world, which are affected by the current pandemic.
      Please share how this is impacting you and what you are seeing.

      Who else is seeing industry shortages and inflation issues causing price and availability issues on auto parts? Manufacturers are short staff, supplies, and materials. Containers from China are backlogged and getting more expensive and add on top of that inflation, prices have and will continue to go up. 
      Chip shortages and user car prices going up, means more more for everything. New car prices are getting over sticker in some cases. Its all relative because even groceries are going up in price. Gas and oil prices as well.  🥵
