Roshan Padamadan of Luminance Capital presented his in-depth investment thesis on Volkswagen (Germany: VOW3) at European Investing Summit 2022.
Volkswagen is a leading Germany-based global auto company that produces and sells a multitude of automotive brands to meet various customer preferences.
The group is going through a genuine transformation, leveraging economies of scale and scope in its move to electric vehicles, as well as investing in the battery and charging stations ecosystem. With experience of selling in over 150 countries, Volkswagen’s “New Auto” strategy is worth watching.
The shares recently traded at a P/E ratio of only 4x, a dividend yield of 6+%, with a special dividend on the horizon due to the listing of Porsche AG.
