Dividends4Life: Auto Parts Dividend Stocks With Undervalued Growth

Since the US auto industry had its best sales quarter in 4 years in Jan-March, and overall world sales are also expected to increase in 2012, you’d think that auto parts companies would be fairly valued already. But, that’s not the case, even with standout growth apparent in some firms. We found 2 solid dividend paying stocks within this sub-industry that are undervalued on many metrics: Magna International, (MGA), a Canadian firm, and Standard Motor Products, (SMP), a US firm. Magna sells its parts to Original Equipment Manufacturers, and Standard sells its parts in both the aftermarket segment and also to Original Equipment Manufacturers. (More detailed profiles are at the end of this article.)

Both of these dividend stocks had strong growth in their most recent quarter, and have good growth forecasts for their next fiscal year. However, their P/E’s are way below industry avgs., making them look undervalued on a PEG ratio basis. MGA’s current 10.72 P/E is approx. in the middle of its historic P/E range of 7.93 – 14.03, while SMP’s 5.44 P/E is actually below its historic range of 7.24 – 27.97. Both stocks are also cheap on a Price/Book and Price/Sales basis.
