So what boosted investors faith in auto stocks?
According to Bloomberg news, progress toward easing the steep tariffs China imposed on U.S. vehicle imports this year lifted carmaker stocks across the globe, as investors wagered on a thawing of tensions that have damaged the world’s biggest automotive market.
It's not just Indian auto stocks, even Toyota Motor Corp. and Hyundai Motor Co. tracked earlier gains as did Daimler AG, General Motors Co. and Tesla Inc.
Reportedly, a proposal to eliminate the 25 percent surcharge slapped onto U.S.-made cars this year has been submitted to China’s cabinet. The plan would be reviewed in coming days, people familiar with the matter said.
Hence, if you have invested in auto stocks, then today you reap fruits of your hard-earned investment.
