Point Out The Auto Sales Recovery In These Charts

Tyler Durden's picture

It seemed yesterday's channel-stuffed and hope-ridden car-maker data in the US was seen by some as evidence that we are right back on track. However, ever ready to separate the reality from the fantasy, we offer the following charts, via Barclays' Julian Callow, that vividly illustrate the rapid decline in the pace of auto registrations (the actual end-users that is) over the past year. In particular, Callow notes, the pace of seasonally-adjusted auto registrations in Q3 for the four largest European countries was the weakest in the series history (back to 1995).

 

 

Via Julian Callow, Barclays:

The slump in auto registrations coincides with reports that European car dealers have been offering heavy incentives, including selling vehicles to themselves to boost sales (source: Automotive News).

 

From a macroeconomic perspective, the exceptionally weak data are consistent with the persistently gloomy reports from the PMIs (as discussed earlier today) and suggest downside risks to consensus expectations for activity during H2.

 

Therefore, in our view, there is a considerable danger of further weakness in auto production (for example, through reduced working time, extended holidays at the turn of the year), which would be another negative factor for euro area industrial production.

They are, but it's for the kids.  Once they target the fat adults, then we will see war, unless the fatties are too tired to do anything about it.

Hey, where is Biderman? Haven't heard from him in a while.

Love the fact that someone looked at registrations instead of going to the Auto Czar Ministry of Propaganda for the sunshine up the ass treatment.

I commented on exactly this issue some hours ago on Seeking Alpha. Even though we all know how wobbly those US numbers are, It is important to note there is a significant difference beteeen the US and European markets (not they can completely decouple from each other). It is also becoming increasingly obvious that Europe is heading into a deep depression.

The U.S. is in recession/depression too but the car loans are flying out the door to just about anyone.

Housing bubble II is being blown with FED MBS purchases and FHA loans, but in the meantime these mini-bubbles are being blown at the same time; car loans, reverse mortgages, student loans, and I'm seeing home equity loans creep back in.

Who gives a f*** anymore.

orangegeek's picture

Isn't there two numbers now.  Sales and Channel Stuffing?

 

Sales - Channel Stuffing = actual sales.

 

Actual sales are probably shit, but in the grand scheme of things, who gives a flying fuck.
