TRW Automotive (TRW) is a world-wide supplier of automotive systems and components to automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The company’s operations primarily encompass the design, manufacture and sale of safety related products. Products include braking and steering systems, airbags and seat belts and crash sensors.

TRW is aggressively expanding operations in Brazil and China to meet customer desire. Demand in the U.S. is also picking up, and auto sales in Europe, where TRW has a large presence, should start to see improvement in the second half of 2011. I believe earnings per share will increase 19% per year during the next five years. At 10.4 times EPS, TRW shares are a bargain.
