11:21 EDTTMToyota recalls 2008-2014 FJ Cruisers, Tacomas due to incorrect tire placard
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2008-2014 FJ Cruiser and Tacoma vehicles equipped with accessory wheels and tires installed by Toyota or dealers prior to the vehicle's first sale. The affected vehicles may list incorrect spare tire size and/or cold tire inflation information on the tire placard. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars." If the spare tire is inflated to the incorrect pressure provided on the placard, tire failure may occur while it is being driven on, increasing the risk of a crash. For the involved vehicles, overlay stickers to correct the tire placard will either be mailed to owners or provided to dealers for placement over the incorrect information on the placard. The recall is expected to begin in September. Reference Link

14:01 EDTTMMobileye sinks after report says Toyota likely to use competitor
Shares of Mobileye (MBLY) are falling after the Nikkei newspaper reported today that Toshiba (TOSBF) is going to make many system chips for automatic driver-assist systems, or ADAS. Toyota (TM) will likely incorporate the chips into vehicles it will release in fiscal year 2015, the newspaper added. Mobileye designs software and chips for camera-based advanced ADAS. WHAT'S NEW: Toshiba plans to begin mass producing the ADAS chips - which will analyze images to help cars respond correctly to traffic lights and avoid dangers on the road - in 2015, Nikkei reported. The chips will be placed in safety systems by another company, Denso, before they are shipped to Toyota, Nikkei noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On September 9, Citigroup raised its price target on Mobileye to $62 from $48, as the firm was more confident about the company's chances of landing Toyota as a client after attending the first day of the ITS World Congress. Although Toyota is one of the few large auto makers not utilizing Mobileye's technology, the Japanese giant does recognize Mobileye's distinct technological advantages and expects to obtain ADAS components from more suppliers over the medium term, according to the firm, which kept a Buy rating on Mobileye. However, Deutsche Bank expressed some caution on the stock earlier this week when it downgraded the shares on valuation concerns. But the firm said that it continued to be upbeat about the company's long-term prospects. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Mobileye slumped $2, or 4%, to $52. The shares debuted on August 12 at about $32.

After a question about Tesla Motors' (TSLA) soon-to-end deal to supply batteries and drive systems to Toyota (TM) for an electric RAV4 was posed to Tesla CEO Musk, the executive said earlier this week that his company may reach a new partnership with the Japanese company in the next two or three years, but Toyota’s chief U.S. spokeswoman has now told The Wall Street Journal that its RAV4 EV project with Tesla has been "mutually beneficial" but that the companies "currently have no new, or pending projects under discussion.” Reference Link

China's Ministry of Commerce is considering whether to ease rules on car dealers and allow them to sell vehicles from multiple brands in the same store, according to Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter. Note that both Bitauto (BITA) and Autohome (ATHM), which operate automobile buyer focused websites in China, were down significantly during yesterday's trading, though it is unclear if the reported new regulations play a role in their share weakness. Publicly traded carmakers include Fiat (FIATY), Ford (F), General Motors (GM), Honda (HMC), Nissan (NSANY), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY). Reference Link

09:28 EDTTMMobileye price target raised to $62 from $48 at Citigroup
Citigroup raised its price target for Mobileye (MBLY) shares to $62 saying it left day one of the ITS World Congress feeling better about its thesis regarding the company landing Toyota (TM) as a client. Citi says Toyota is one of few remaining large OEMs that has yet to enter production with Mobileye. It believes Toyota recognizes Mobileye’s distinct technological advantages and expects to source more ADAS suppliers over the medium-term. William Blair this morning said it believes Tesla (TSLA) and GM (GM) are using Mobileye for their automated highway driving assist technology while Morgan Stanley upped its price target for shares to $65. The stock is trading up 6% to $56.23 in pre-market trading.
