Volkswagen just doesn’t seem able to shake loose of their pollution-control scandal and their use of defeat devices to cheat on vehicle emissions tests. The German government has arrested luxury subsidiary Audi CEO, Rupert Stadler due to fears that he would interfere into a probe of his role in the cheating program.

Volkswagen admitted to cheating emissions tests for popular diesel models in many lines–including Audi. They have since paid @ $25 billion for various fines, penalties, and programs to replace vehicles for customers. While they settled their case in the US back in 2016, in Germany the criminal probe into the scandal continues.

We had been more hopeful for the stock for much of 2017 and 2018, but now our models have recalculated the underlying fundamentals and only find the stock to be worth a HOLD rating.
