Investment Idea - German Car Makers + Italy's FIAT

When I started looking at European stocks in the 1st quarter of this year it really surprised how cheap these companies were selling from a valuation stand point. Being a follower of Philippine stocks on the period when we were on the relentless rally towards the 7000-and-beyond levels, the spread between the earnings multiple, price to book, dividend yield etc between PHL and EU stocks to me was just too wide (PHL being expensive and EU being cheap). Now one could argue that PHL was expensive for a reason (potential growth) and EU was cheap for a reason (contracting economy) but that would be subject to an entirely different debate and will most likely end up not really knowing who's right or wrong, so to simplify things let's just take the numbers as they are, what's cheap is cheap and what's expensive is expensive. =)

Having this said, back then I really had the conviction that there is a compelling case for a long term investment on these EU stocks and damn If only I had the access (and capital LOL) to the Europeans stock exchanges I would have bought them right upfront hahaha! :D Anyways, back to the point of this article, here's the analysis I made during 1st quarter this year. 

**Analysis was made on 11-Apr-13.**

We were thinking that we take this recent correction on the European markets to position ourselves on German car-makers, BMW GR, VOW GR, DAI GR and Italy's F IM. See some fundamental and technical reasons below.
