Post-Pandemic Economic Prospects


Identification: AUT2002

The economy continues to recover from the deepest recession in the post-war period. The reopening phase generated stellar growth rates from locked-down levels, fueled by massive amounts of fiscal and monetary policy stimulus. However, although still strong, growth rates are starting to ebb in a swoosh-like fashion, as business and consumer confidence remain vulnerable to virus’ vagaries. Meanwhile, additional fiscal policy support is proving harder to come by as the election approaches. The economy’s complete recuperation from the pandemic could take a long time. This session will address these issues.

New Realities of Today's Used Car Business and Methods to Maximize Net Profits

Used vehicle net profits have diminished in recent years, even as sales volumes have increased for dealers.

This session offers a data-rich dive into the factors that have caused net profits to decline and reveals new metrics dealers can use to right-size their inventory investment to retail demand, identify each vehicle’s unique investment value and align their used vehicle acquisition, pricing and reconditioning decisions to maximize each vehicle’s optimal return on investment. The session will deliver take-home strategies that help dealers increase sales volumes without sacrificing net profit.
