2 Stocks to Profit From Skyrocketing Used Car Prices

by | Dec 1, 2021 | Stocks

With new vehicle production stutters caused by a variety of factors like the microchip shortage, more and more people are turning to the used car market…

But this swell in demand coupled with low short-term supply of used vehicles has prices skyrocketing so much they cost more than their factory-fresh counterparts. 

I mean, used Toyota Tacomas are going for nearly $40,000, while new ones are $37,000! 

This trend should continue well into 2022. And I’ve found a small group of auto stocks set to benefit from this anomaly as long as supply chain bottlenecks persist.

2 Auto Stocks Set to Benefit From Soaring Used Car Prices 

The first auto stock set to benefit from heightened used car demand is CarMax Inc. (NYSE: KMX).

KMX is a used-car retailer that has a “no haggle” policy for selling and buying pre-owned cars. 

And I’ll tell you now… 

I sold my Jeep to CarMax this year, and they outbid the closest competitor by more than $4,000! 

KMX is up 50-plus percent over the past year, and earnings estimates have been better than expected each of the past four quarters. 

And I expect its price to reach the $170 level over the next three months. 

That’s especially true if supply chain issues, inflationary pressures and COVID-19 all remain major influences on the economy. 

The next auto stock I have for you is a leading automotive aftermarket parts provider. 

It serves both professional installers and do-it-yourself customers. 

And similar to KMX, it’s seen gains of over 50% in the past 12 months…

Check out my short video below to get the next auto stock set to benefit from soaring used car prices on my list.

P.S. What if I said there’s a three-piece blueprint to help traders succeed in all three market climates? 

In fact, it’s already helped Chuck Hughes grow one of his accounts 142% on average every month in just 15 months…

And it’s even led a small group of traders to gains of 330%… 274%… and 251%… all in just three months!

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.
