7 Auto Stocks to Buy as Price Relief Might Not Arrive Soon

It’s perhaps the most hated bull market in America that seemingly defies all expectations (and desires to be honest). Following the severe disruption of the novel coronavirus pandemic, several markets went haywire to the upside, including most conspicuously the used-car sector. But with media reports stating that wholesale prices for secondhand vehicles have been moving lower from their highs, this boded poorly for auto stocks.

Until, that is, the situation started boding positively again for auto stocks. What gives? Another false-positive? In this particular case, seemingly contrasting events are actually both true.

It’s not every day that I find myself actually wanting to place a bid on an item that pops up on Bring A Trailer, but this past week, one of the finest auctions to ever hit the site was set to end, and I couldn’t resist myself. But as it turned out, this is BaT, so even a collection of 643 automotive and motorsport books can sell for a truly goofy amount of money.

Yep. This formidable library of books came straight from the shelves of John Lamm, an automotive journalist who spent nearly four decades developing a truly iconic career at Road & Track.
