|Downgraded to underperform by Credit Suisse to 360p It's covered on FT Markets Live: https://ftalphaville.ft.com/marketslive/2017-03-10/
"Downgrade to Underperform: We downgrade AutoTrader (AUTOA) to
Underperform and reduce our target price to 360p (from 390p) as we believe
the current valuation doesn't correctly reflect short-medium term risks around
the cycle, with (Average Revenue Per Retailer) ARPR gains likely to become
harder to obtain and longer term risks around autonomous vehicles"|

Auto Trader: An Excellent First Year

|Peel Hunt retains BUY and 445p target|
|Auto Trader: full speed ahead
Auto Trader shares have climbed more than 3 per cent this morning, after the largest UK used car sales website put its foot to the floor, driving up profits and sales amid decent consumer confidence and easy car credit conditions.
The group’s pre-tax profits leapt to from £10.9m last year to £155m in the year to March, thanks to rising revenues and a £107.6m fall in its own finance costs.
The company, whose shares have climbed 48 per cent since its IPO in March 2015, said its revenues rose 10 per cent to £281.6m.
It highlighted “consumer confidence and economic recovery” as a catalyst for its performance, but also said:
The availability of competitive and diverse finance options (often heavily incentivised) has made it easier than ever to secure bespoke and affordable funding arrangements for new or used cars.

|Auto Trader raises full year profit guidance
"The internet has transformed the way we buy used cars. The days of having to trudge around forecourts, trying your best to avoid the sales man are becoming a thing of the past. Nowadays, most consumers buy a car from the first forecourt they visit, having already made their buying decision online.
Auto Trader owns the leading online auto marketplace in the UK and Ireland. The majority of revenues come from car retailers who pay to advertise cars on its site, in a similar way that estate agents pay to list their properties on sites like Rightmove.
The group benefits from a dominant market position, reinforced by a long established brand name (the print magazine was founded in 1977, with the business becoming 100% digital in 2013). The site attracts 43 million monthly cross platform visits, five times more than its nearest competitor. Over 80% of all time spent on automotive classified sites is spent on Auto Trader."

|Trevor Mather, chief executive of Auto Trader Group plc, said: “Auto Trader has delivered a strong first half performance, as retailers, consumers and manufacturers alike are increasingly recognising the value of our marketplace.
“We continue to grow our audience of car buyers and develop products to add value to our retailers, helping them remain competitive and make informed decisions based on real-time market data, allowing them to buy and sell the right stock at the right price.
“We believe there is substantial opportunity to grow the business based on the increasing importance of the internet for automotive advertising, and the growing use of data to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the industry.”
