Honda - Driving Nowhere Slowly
A reader contacted me after my article/s on German automotives and asked me to review Honda. I don't often review or read on Japanese companies - but Honda's market position in the USA is strong, and the company is potentially interesting. Read my stance on Honda, and why I am not impressed with the company, or the valuation.
Honda Motor Co.: Going Nowhere Without A Change
The automobile industry has been seeing some positive catalysts as they navigate electrification and automation of their motors and technologies. With hype seeming to play a critical role in the success, or lack thereof, of companies' sales growth, Honda is trailing behind and is projected to report slower annual growth. As a result, I believe they currently constitute a poor long-term investment.
