Will Toyota’s Domestic Sales Target For 2013 Please These Top Institutional Shareholders?

Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE:TM) has set a domestic sales target for 2013 of 1.36 million vehicles as compared to their current year target of 1.67 million vehicles. The lower target indicates the impact of the withdrawal of government subsidies paid on fuel-efficient vehicles with effect from the middle of September, says Reuters, quoting a regional newspaper the Mid-Japan Economist. Domestic difficulties on the sales front add to declines of sales in China, where the company suffered an anti-Japan backlash due to a territorial dispute between the two countries.

Will Toyota Motor Corporation’s shareholders increase their holdings? They reported owning a total of 25.016 million shares on 09/30/2012. The shares closed at $78.51 on 09/30/2012.
