06:06 EDTBWA, LEALear upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst Colin Langan upgraded Lear Corporation to Buy citing the recent pullback in shares. The company's "strong" free cash flow limits the downside risk of shares, Langan tells investors in a research note. The stock is down 11% from the June peak despite Lear's raised margin outlook for 2015, the analyst points out. He views selloff in the U.S. Auto Parts sector as buying opportunity for investors and also upgraded BorgWarner (BWA) this morning to Buy. Langan raised his price target for Lear shares to $124 from $115.

07:42 EDTF, GMNew Street-high target of $465 gives Tesla shares a charge
Shares of Tesla Motors (TSLA) are jumping after Morgan Stanley boosted its price target by $185 to $465, a new high among Wall Street analysts. The company is positioned to dominate as car sales shift to robot-driven and shared vehicles, the firm argues. SELLING MILES: Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas raised his price target for Tesla Motors to $465 from $280, well above Friday's closing price of $243.15. Today, ten trillion vehicle miles are driven annually, with almost all of them delivered by "companies practicing a 100-year-old business model of human-driven, privately owned, internal-combustion vehicles," Jonas tells investors in a research note. General Motors (GM), Ford (F), Toyota (TM) and Honda (HMC) are among the publicly traded traditional carmakers. The market of selling cars is going through some fundamental changes, argues Jonas. He believes Tesla is "uniquely positioned" to dominate given its expertise in autonomous technology and networked machine learning. An app-based, on-demand mobility service could more than triple Tesla's potential revenues by 2029, the analyst estimates. He expects Tesla over the next 18 months to roll out formalized business plans on shared mobility, allowing the electric vehicle maker to sell miles in addition to cars. His new price target of $465 reflects Tesla's potential to lead the revolution of the shared mobility public transportation hyper-structure and more confidence around the commercial viability of Tesla Energy. ROBOT-DRIVEN: Jonas expects nearly all car sales to eventually shift from human-driven, individually-owned cars to robot-driven and shared cars. If Tesla wants to succeed on its mission of accelerating the world's transition to sustainable transport, the move to a shared mobility model is critical, he argues. All of Tesla's cars are electric, connected, and able to "learn" through over-the- air firmware updates at any time, which no other established automaker can claim today, Jonas writes. MARKET REACTION: Investors are buying into what Jonas is arguing. Shares of Tesla are up 5%, or $13.10, to $256.25 in pre-market trading. Over the past three months through Friday's close, the stock is down 2%.

15:44 EDTGMGeneral Motors to invest 'several million' in historic factory renovation
General Motors announced that the "historic" Durant-Dort Factory One will be converted into an archive and research center as part of a renovation project. GM will invest several million dollars to create a modern archive to house the automotive collection currently located at Kettering University. The archive and research center will occupy the first floor of the east wing of Factory One. GM plans to develop the second floor of the east wing into a meeting area for GM, community and educational groups to conduct STEM-related classes, seminars and, potentially, research. The high-bay area in the west wing of the facility will be renovated to house classic vehicles and other historical artifacts. Once plans are finalized and a general contractor is selected, work on the archive and other interior projects could begin in early 2016 with the project completed in 2017, according to GM.
