    It's been a very good year for TSLA investors. How did the rest of the auto industry stocks do?
    CompanyTickerMarket CapStock % change YTD
    Tesla MotorsTSLA19B+352%
    FordF60B+18%
    GMGM57B+41%
    ToyotaTM193B+28%
    HondaHMC74B+12%
    NissanNSANY35B-12%
    AudiAUDVF36B+145%
    BMWBMW56B+17%
    FiatFIATY10B+61%
    For reference, the NYSE Composite index is up 23% YTD, so Ford, Honda, Nissan, and BMW lagged, with Toyota barely keeping up. Fiat, Audi, and Tesla all had great years, and GM shareholders should be pleased (especially now that the feds have sold their shares, removing that looming threat of a big dump of shares on the market).

    I'm not seeing any common threads among the winners and losers. Any comments?

    I'm surprised the Japanese automakers did so poorly with the Nikkei up 56%.

    Ah the Yen fell all year too meaning performance in dollar terms of the Nikkei was about the same as the US market.

    I thought Audi was a wholly owned subsidiary of Volkswagen AG.

    According to Wiki

    The largest shareholder of Audi is Volkswagen AG, which holds approximately 99.5% of the share capital.[5] Volkswagen includes the consolidated accounts of Audi in its own financial statements.

    I wonder how that works? Audi stock is publicly traded but VW owns 99.5% of "share capital"?

    Where is VW?

    Did not do too well in 2013, +17 % (in Euros).

    Not sure about the market cap. There are preferred stock and ordinary shares both traded heavily here. Probably 92 b€, ~120B$

    I would also add Fuji Heavy Industries (Subaru): ADR up 128% in 2013.
