“Raised exit EBITDA margin forecast to 8.9% vs. 8.2% previously as our higher growth drives operating leverage, primarily in the BEV-exposed businesses (BEV Power & Vision, Body & Exterior, Complete Seating and Complete BEV vehicle assembly). This change adds approximately $5 to our price target.”
The company is set to announce its next earnings report on Thursday, May 6. According to ZACKS Research, Magna International is expected to post $9.75 billion in sales for the current fiscal quarter.

“MGA is the third-largest global auto supplier, with leadership in many product segments, strong balance sheet, and attractive valuation vs. peers. We believe Magna has an ability to grow its EV and AV-related business lines in a way that can more than compensate for the run-out of ICE/legacy OEM product lines,” Morgan Stanley’s Jonas added.
“The net result is modest growth over market, balanced by a starting point of peak cycle and margins. We see the stock as largely fairly valued with a mostly even risk-reward skew.”
