  • Wholesale Prices Resume Pre-Hurricane Pattern
    Wholesale used vehicle prices started the year in the pattern that characterized much of 2017 in the months prior to hurricane season.  Namely, car prices tended to fall while truck prices provided a boost to average wholesale values.  In January, car prices continued to show year-over-year price declines, while truck prices did the opposite, but that situation is moving towards parity, as indicated by strong month-over-month increases in car prices.According to ADESA Analytical Services’ monthly analysis of Wholesale Used Vehicle Prices by Vehicle Model Class, wholesale used vehicle prices in January averaged $10,980 – up 1.6 percent compared to December and up 0.3 percent relative to January 2017.  Prices increased at a higher monthly rate for cars than trucks, but were down on an annual basis.Average wholesale prices for used vehicles remarketed by manufacturers were down 3.7 percent month-over-month but up 7.9 percent year-over-year.  Prices for fleet-lease consignors were up 4.1 percent sequentially but down 0.3 percent year-over-year. Average prices for dealer consignors were down 1.7 percent versus December and down 0.6 percent relative to January 2017.When holding constant for sale type, model-year age, mileage, and model class segment, prices were down on a year-over-year basis for both midsize cars and midsize SUV/CUVs.
  • Older Consumers Carry More Debt, Risk
    Older consumers have long been considered sure bets when it comes to auto finance. While they remain the safest group by age, there is some rising risk. A recent study by a trio of economists finds that older Americans are holding more debt than their counterparts did two decades ago – mostly due to the purchase of more expensive homes and putting less down. Oliva S. Mitchell, a professor at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania., is one of the study’s authors She said they started looking at credit patterns among older buyers when they noticed Baby Boomer women were working longer into their 60s. It seems one reason is the higher debt their households have. “This means that they are carrying more debt into retirement and are more vulnerable to rising interest rates than in the past,” Mitchell said. “While no one knows for sure how the economy will evolve in the next several years, based on past experience it appears that the rising Federal deficit will drive inflation up, and in turn, interest rates. This will make everyone holding existing debt – especially adjustable-rate debt – more risky.” If older consumers hold more debt than before, extending credit to this age group becomes riskier, Mitchell said. Analysts at Experian found the same trends as Mitchell’s group, as reported in the firm’s latest “State of Credit” report. The Experian report goes on to state that Baby Boomers have the lowest late payment instances of all the generations, but they need to continue their positive credit behavior as they take on more debt.
