Why the Shorts Are Wrong About This Stock

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes and consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin take a look at BorgWarner, an auto parts manufacturer with a high short percentage at 10% of its float. Brendan disagrees with the shorts here; he thinks BorgWarner is a solid buy candidate. The company makes, among other things, turbochargers for both gas and diesel vehicles, and dual clutch technology. This technology should be in greater demand in the future as much more strignent corporate average fuel economy standards kick in. That should propel demand for BorgWarner's products, along with a solid network of customers that includes almost every major automaker. Check out the video below for more on BorgWarner's future prospects.
