    Auto parts maker Magna's profit more than doubles, raises revenue forecast
    By Reuters Staff

    (Reuters) - Canadian auto parts maker Magna International Inc on Thursday reported a 136% rise in quarterly profit and raised its full-year revenue outlook, as strong demand for vehicles encouraged its customers to order more body structures, chassis and powertrains.

    While a strong pent-up demand and preference for private vehicles during the COVID-19 crisis lifted sales at auto suppliers, a shortage of semiconductor chips has caused automakers to curtail production and forecast billions in losses.

    Analysts expect a peak headwind to production due to the chip crunch in the second quarter. Semiconductors are used extensively in cars, for everything from engine performance monitoring to parking sensors.

    Magna’s revenue for the year is now expected to be between $40.2 billion and $41.8 billion, up from a previous forecast of $40.0 billion to $41.6 billion.

    Global light vehicle production was up 18% in the first quarter driven by an 87% increase in China, the company said in a statement.

    Net income attributable to Magna rose to $615 million, or $2.03 per share, in the first quarter ended March 31, from $261 million, or 86 cents per share, a year earlier.

    Total sales rose to $10.18 billion from $8.66 billion.

    Hey Jonaz, hold on to it. It's a great company and will go up over $118.00. Too bad you didn't wait for the dip to buy. Hindsight is 20/20 though. Don't sell. If anything, definitely more at this price that way you'll bring down your cost average. Believe me, it's going past 118!

    The chip shortage is short term noise. Magna has many areas to make money. Very strong stock - charts look solid. 2 days ago I suggested to take advantage of the panic dip. You can't give up on such a good stock as this.

    Keeping in mind Apple may have teamed up with LG and Magna International. https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a36123061/apple-partners-ev-lg-magna/

    Not sure where this is headed in the short term. I bought at 118 CAD, so I'm not sure what to do.

    Congrats to longs on the excellent ER, and to Magna management for being a steady hand in tough times. I said this would go back to $120 after ER and we're almost there - if not for the tech sell-off I think today would be better. One of few plays I don't need to worry about.

    Magna manufacturing spans many countries. These companies have highly skilled individuals who make auto parts of precision for almost all OEM auto companies. The pieces to put together cars of the future depend on higher technology and of fewer pieces. Magna's focus on engineers developing the essential component is second to none. I'm confident their expertise will continue to attract business who want the most capable and effective components for this revolution in the auto industry to electrify it. With a current PE of 13 - it's minimal to what the future prospects are. i have a strong hunch that Apple's foray into this sector will include Magna especially with the focus on high quality components from a reliable manufacturer spanning decades.

    Folks this looks like the Chip shortage is dropping thru the supply chain. Many of the Auto Factories are closing for weeks at a time. I'm worried it will impact MGA. Ford just said it hurt them by 1.5 billion in truck and Car sales. My advice take cover and re-buy when this works out later this year. Don't take this wrong it is just a fact of life. I have heard MGA is shipping less parts to some customers. Take cover! For now I'm Bearish. MGA had a good run live to fight another day! All you have to do is watch the news on Auto sales.

    Earnings seem pretty darn good considering chip shortage. Seems like they are positioned to really accelerate once shortage subsidies. Still cheap.

    If the Apple Car rumor is true, does anyone when the anticipated release of the information is?

    I do have a question, some of the Auto companies have been have issues getting Chips for some of their cars. I hope this does not trickle down to MGA. Several car companies have closed a few plants for a week or two because of the Chip shortages. Semiconductor supply chain is having problems, they need to figure out how to fix it. Hope it is a short term issue and the supply of "Chips" rebound!

    I'm in at $118.8 CAD, but its sad to see this drop so much. Does anyone see this rebounding substantially in the near future or is it all down from here?
