Related EWP Maybe Some Relief For The Spain ETF Politics Prove Problematic For The Spain ETF

Relatively speaking, the iShares MSCI Spain Capped ETF (NYSE: EWP) has not been that bad compared to other single-country exchange-traded funds tracking PIIGS economies. Year-to-date, EWP is down 3.8 percent, a loss that is only half as bad as the equivalent Ireland ETF and far superior to the average loss of 14.5 percent for the comparable Greece and Italy ETFs.

As is the case with other members of the PIIGS group, there have been lingering concerns about the health of Spanish banks. However, there are signs banks in the eurozone's fourth largest economy are regaining some health. The health of Spanish banks is of particular importance to EWP because the Spain ETF, as is the case with so many single-country funds, devotes a significant percentage of its weight to financial services names.

Top Heal Care Stocks To Invest In 2018: Rubicon Technology, Inc.(RBCN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Thursday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested shorting small cap LED semiconductor stockRubicon Technology (NASDAQ: RBCN):

    Rubicon Technology isn’t going to be a monster-sized winner for us, even if things go perfectly. About the best downside target we could hope for is the $0.60 area, where the stock was launched into an unsustainable uptrend a week ago. But, it’s a high-odds trade we can’t pass up. Yesterday’s doji bar after a big rally was a warning sign that we were transitioning into a net-selling environment. Today’s sharp pullback confirms we’re moving into that bearish mode.

    Welcome to the July 2017 edition of Electric Vehicle (EV) company news. In many ways, I think July 2017 will be remembered as a major turning point in EV history – with Model 3 production underway, the British and French governments declaring ICE bans, Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY), Big Oil and the IMF acknowledging EVs are the way of the future. What a monumental month for EVs – matched with near-record global sales.

    2019 going into 2020 is when autonomous cars start to ramp. Let’s look at some of the industry news bits:

    NuTonomy to expand self-driving taxi service to 10 cities around the world by 2020 (Source: Yahoo News) Delphi (NYSE:DLPH) and Mobileye to provide off-the-shelf self-driving system by 2019 (Source: TheVerge) Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) expects first self-driving cars on the market by 2019 (Source: Focus) Ford’s head of product development: autonomous vehicle on the market by 2020 (Source: Auto News) Baidu’s (NASDAQ:BIDU) chief scientist expects a large number of self-driving cars on the road by 2019 (Source: Quora) First autonomous Toyota to be available in 2020 (Source: Wired.com) Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY) to provide fully autonomous vehicles by 2020 (Source: Nissan Motors) Sergey Brin plans to have Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) driverless car in the market by 2018 (Source: Driverless car market watch)

    There is a clear trend here. Most players in the space plan on really ramping after 2019 going into 2020. Let’s assume Tesla can hit its 500k goal after 2018, in 2019, it would have 1.2mm autonomous capable cars on the road vs. a 4.4mm installed base or 27% of the global base. Then, in 2020, Tesla would have 1.7mm autonomous capable cars vs. a base of 10mm or 17% of the global base. You may think that Tesla is starting to look less impressive. That’s not really the case when you factor in that automakers make about 75mm cars a year globally. Tesla will still have a larger percentage of the autonomous fleet in 2020 than Toyota’s percentage of the entire global automotive fleet at around 15%. With that being said, I do think 2019-2020 is when Tesla’s chokehold on the autonomous vehicle fleet will start to come under pressure. Tesla needs to figure out how to ramp to Ford, Nissan or Honda (NYSE:HMC) type production levels to maintain its dominance. Is that even possible?

    In terms of production, Audi’s electric-vehicle effort is supported by corporate parent Volkswagens (NASDAQOTH:VLKAY) aggressive, big-budget move toward electric vehicles. Nearly all of VW’s brands are known to have long-range electric vehicles under development. Audi’s economies of scale (via VW) could well eclipse Tesla’s by early next decade.

    The company’s auto catalyst business has been roughly cut in half over the last five years due to a mix of Chinese export restrictions, cheaper products from Asian competitors, and IP infringement. Luxfer is doing what it can, including suing infringers and working on next-gen products, but I think it is too bullish to expect the company to regain all that it lost. Catalysts for the passenger diesel market are an interesting opportunity, but it increasingly seems that, in the wake of the Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) scandal, auto OEMs are tired of messing around with “clean diesel” and instead are moving quickly toward hybrid and electric vehicle technologies.
