Fiat-Chrysler with a nearly 90% rise was the Winner for 2017.

Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) was 2nd, posting an 80% return.

On the year Fiat-Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU) rose from about 10 to 18, while Ferrari rose from about 60 to 104.84 at the close of Y 2017 after marking a high in November of 116ish..

Ford was the laggard, +5% on the year. FoM0Co investors may see Ford shares at 13 as attractive relative  given the potential for upside in Y 2018.  The company has a nearly $40-B war chest on its balance sheet.

Note: GM’s 4% dividend payment into account, its 21% return was appealing for risk-averse investors.

Based on the hype from CEO Elon Musk, one might have thought that EV maker Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) would have turned in the best stock-market performance in Y 2017. Tesla rose at the beginning of Y 2017 and almost broke the 400 mark. Its market cap passed Ford and Fiat-Chrysler.

Tesla finished up over 40% on the year.

For the mainline car makers US sales could fall below a 17-M pace for the 1st time in 3 years, according to sector analysts,  but a tougher US market could weaker stock returns.

That is except for the iconic Italian luxury supercar maker and F1 racing standout Ferrari.
