Here’s What You Should Know About Toyota Motor Corporation (ADR) (TM)

The fallout from the Takata airbag scandal has struck again, with Toyota Motor Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:TM) now calling back around another 1.6 million additional vehicles in the United States. Earlier in the month, Takata declared that 35 to 40 million of its U.S. airbag inflators were defective, up more than double from its previous declaration. Takata’s inflators use ammonium nitrate, which have been shown to be unstable if exposed to humidity and heat. The instability can cause ruptures that might send metal parts flying into the cabin. At least 11 people have died and 100 people have been injured partly due to the defect. The Takata scandal has caused several automobile makers to take considerable write-downs in their most recent round of earnings releases and has tarnished Japan’s sterling quality reputation. Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE:TM) will replace the airbag inflator at no additional cost to the consumer. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at how hedge funds and other institutional investors have been trading Toyota Motor Corp.
