    Ferrari may be a carmaker but its valuation is more similar to those of luxury powerhouses like LVMH (OTCPK:LVMUY), Kering (OTCPK:PPRUY) or Richemont (OTCPK:CFRUY) than those of fellow car companies like former parent FCA or Germanys Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIF), BMW (OTCPK:BMWYY) or Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY). No other automotive brand, luxury or volume, can compete with Ferrari’s operative EBIT margin of 22.69 percent and EBITDA margin of 30.3 percent for the full year 2017 (the runner-up being Volkswagen-owned Porsche with a margin of 17.6 percent for 2017). In my eyes, this is further proof of the fact that a Ferrari is not primarily a car but a luxury product. It just happens to be a luxury product that presents itself in the form of a car. The overwhelming majority of cars are purchased out of necessity. Even a premium product like a Mercedes-Benz or a BMW will in most cases remain a tool of transportation above everything else – although I could imagine that some of my fellow countrymen from Germany would fiercely disagree with me on this. No one, however, needs a Ferrari. Please note that I allow myself to exclude needs of the ego from my definition of necessity here. Still, Ferraris are in high demand. That is because customers dont buy them because they need but because they want them. It is this passion that ensures the companys success. It is noteworthy that at Ferrari revenue (+10 percent in 2017; +11.2 percent currency-adjusted) increases at a significantly faster pace than shipments (+4.8 percent in 2017) do. This underlines the business’s pricing power.
