Long
NYSE:ALSN   Allison Transmission Holdings, Inc
Allison Transmission (ALSN) is one of the worlds largest transmission manufacturers. The company has recently developed a new transmission model that helps to improve fuel economy. The company is set to release its 3Q earnings Monday, Oct. 30 with a conference call on Tuesday, Oct. 31.
US car production is coming off of its low back in 2009 and has increased to 3.02 million units in August from 2.62 million units in July. Still 3 million units below average but we are seeing an increase. Low interest rates are still making auto loans affordable . However, New passenger car registrations are down to 501.98 thousand from 502.59. This could mean that fewer are actually purchasing cars but the auto industry is expecting higher demand.
The market is trending strong with good breadth, 88 percent of stocks are making new highs.
The outlook for the auto industry looks good. If ALSN releases better than expected earnings , expect to see a move up.
The stock currently trades at 36.94, down 8% from its 52-week high. We saw a recent bounce off of the $36 support line. RSI is in a bearish range and the current move is supported by average volume .
I'm long in anticipation of a good earnings release and a good Q4 period.
