Lengthy UAW strike at GM to cost $1.5 billion: Credit Suisse

10/11/2019 | 07:52am EDT
UAW workers strike at the Bowling Green facility

(Reuters) - An ongoing workers' strike at General Motors Co could cost the automaker about $1.5 billion, brokerage Credit Suisse said on Friday, throwing the U.S. automaker's cost reduction plans off the track and forcing key suppliers to cut their 2019 outlook.

The brokerage has assumed the strike by the United Auto Workers (UAW) union, currently in its 26-day, to last until Oct. 21.

GM, which likely lost production of about 100,000 vehicles in the third quarter, is at the risk of losing another 170,000 vehicles in the current quarter, the brokerage said, with the impact spreading to some of GM's facilities in Mexico and Canada that receive parts from its U.S. factories.

"While investors may look through the one-time impacts...the strike reminds us of the challenge of investing in OEMs at this point in the cycle," analyst Dan Levy wrote in a note.

The brokerage said GM may now have to revise its target of $4.5 billion in cost savings through 2020, announced last year, as production curtailments and labor-related cost reductions may not happen as fast as the company had expected.

"We assume just under $900 million of reduced costs or 20% of the original (target)," Levy said.

Credit Suisse said the strike will hurt suppliers, including American Axle, Aptiv Plc, Lear Corp, Delphi Technologies, and Dana Inc, whose exposure to GM varies between 5% and 18%, with American Axle at 40%.

Last week, Canadian auto parts maker Linamar Corp estimated a profit impact of up to C$1 million per day due to a fall in orders from its customer General Motors.

Credit Suisse lowered its 2019 earnings per share estimate for GM by 83 cents to $6.11, below the Wall Street consensus of $6.56, according to IBES data from Refinitiv, as the No.1 automaker is also at the risk of losing market share to smaller rivals such as Ford Motor.

The brokerage has cut its price target on GM's stock to $46 from $50, while reaffirming its "outperform" rating.

Of 19 brokerages, 14 rate GM "buy" or "higher" and five "hold", with no "sell" rating. The median price target for the stock is $48, representing an upside of more than 38% to Thursday's close.
