Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (TM)’s Lucky Advantage Over Ford Motor Company (F) And General Motors Company (GM)

Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE:TM)’s been making the news lately with its over-performance with respect to guidance disclosures, but Frost & Sullivan Senior Consultant Niranjan Thiyagarajan said in an interview at Bloomberg that this is only the outcome of short-lived forces. One of which is the current about $82.3 Crude Oil (Brent) price in USD/bbl. General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) and Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) have also felt a bump in sales due to the cheapening of the commodity, but they haven’t been as good in impressing through numbers as Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE:TM) managed to. Nevertheless, it’s not all that fine and dandy for the Japanese manufacturer.

“In the short term, what it’s looking at right now it looks good for them, but let’s not forget that North America and Europe are established markets. They did not perform as well in emerging markets. So, they performed poorly in Thailand, which is a key market in Asia, with all the political turmoil, as well as in India,” said Niranjan Thiyagarajan.

Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) has reported a $1.4 billion gap between this year’s third quarter pre-tax profit and last year’s. General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) had a better quarter as the company’s net income attributable to stockholders was $1.4 billion, almost double compared to the same metric last year. However, the spectacular increase is due to a series of unfavorable events, called “special items”, that diminished the income by $0.3 billion and $0.9 billion for 2013 and 2014, respectively. Besides Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE:TM)’s seemingly better performance, the company has another advantage over its American rivals.

“In fact, there was another statistic that came out that for every 1 drop in Yen against the Dollar, Lexus’ profit increases by $100 million. So that’s another number that came out, obviously, because Lexus is selling a lot in North America. It’s a flagship brand in North America and all of their Lexus production is in Japan,” informed Niranjan Thiyagarajan.
