プリウスの欠陥によるリコールが原因だ。(800万台)

Toyota Stock Falls After Moody's Downgrades Credit Rating
トヨタ社ムーディーの格付けランクを下げ株価も下げた

Toyota, which was stripped of the top Aaa rating last year by Moody's Investors Service, has been downgraded again to Aa2, the third-highest grade. Fitch Ratings announced that it too might downgrade the auto giant's rating after it re-examines the company's creditworthiness in the next few months. (Standard & Poor's is due to examine its credit ratings on Toyota in the middle of May.) "A lower credit rating indicates a higher risk of a default and can raise borrowing costs," Bloomberg reported. "The carmaker has 5.45 trillion yen of bonds and loans coming due through 2012." The downgrade was, for the most part, a result of Toyota's recent recalls, which have affected more than 8 million vehicles. With hundreds of lawsuits in the works, Toyota's profit margins for the next few years are very difficult to predict. "We are deeply disappointed with the Moody's downgrade," Mieko Iwasaki, a Toyota spokesman based in Tokyo, told Bloomberg. "We are doing our utmost in prioritizing our customers' trust with our best management efforts and hope to have our rating raised again." After the announcement from Moody's, Toyota shares dropped 1.4 percent to 3,600 yen. A full-year earnings report is expected on May 11, but the auto giant has predicted a net income of $862 million for the year ended March 31.

ホンダ、営業益9割増

 ホンダの業績が一段と上向いている。2010年3月期は、本業のもうけを示す連結営業利益(米国会計基準)が前の期に比べ約9割増の3600億円前後になったようだ。従来予想は69%増の3200億円。新興国での販売好調や円安が寄与した。中国向けの販売増で日産自動車など他の自動車大手も計画を上回りそうで、業績回復が鮮明になってきた。
 ホンダの営業利益は、現時点の見込みで国内大手7社で最大。小型車中心の車種構成で経営効率が高く、二輪車で培ったブランドが新興国にも浸透して好調ぶりが目立つ。
