  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "General Motors’ has a positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters and is seeing positive estimate revisions for the current quarter The company’s capital allocation strategy, investments in plants in the U.S. and emerging markets, product launches and focus on technology development are likely to benefit. However, General Motors has underperformed the Zacks categorized Auto Manufacturers-Domestic industry over the last three months.  The automaker is also under pressure due to lower U.S. vehicles sales in 2016, a recent settlement related to the 2014 ignition switch recall and a large fine by China for monopolistic pricing behavior."

  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "Last year we had Brexit. This year it is GMEexit as PSA and GM confirmed earlier today that GM will sell both its automotive and financing operations in Europe to PSA. This morning, GM's stock is down but we believe investors should view the transaction positively. The transaction makes GM a higher return and stronger cash generating business, full stop. While the near term benefits to GM's P&L are muted, the transaction provides GM with an inexpensive exit from a business which has struggled to make money, let alone cover its cost of capital, for many years. Europe remains a market with minimal cycle over cycle unit growth and increasing regulatory cost pressure. As a result, it is and is likely to remain one of the least profitable regions globally for mass market OEMs. Through this transaction, GM has reduced its risk in the next European economic downturn and its gross cash requirements today, enabling the company to quickly return c$2bn to shareholders. Meanwhile, 'fixing Europe' will no longer be a pre-occupation for GM's senior management teams." (3/6/2017)
  • 3. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "We reiterate our Overweight rating following today's 4Q16 earnings call. GM didn't break much new ground during the call itself, as 2017 guidance had already been unveiled at a recent conference. We think the post-earnings sell-off mainly represents profit-taking, not a true change-of-heart amongst investors. Management fielded several questions re: the impact of Trump's policy proposals - but unsurprisingly, offered little clarity on these topics (the CEO has been a frequent attendee at Trump's round-table industry meetings, but when it comes to predicting future legislation, she appears no better equipped than the rest of us). We are moving our estimates higher primarily to reflect updated guidance and better results in South America. Our price target is moving to $43 (from $42)." (2/8/2017)
  • 4. Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "GM posted an 18% beat vs. our Adj. EBIT ests, driven by NA and Europe. Other regions in line. GM reiterated its strong 2017 outlook including $6bn auto FCF (we fcst $7bn auto FCF). We see GM in position to surprise the market on FCF, the pace/scope of structural change and cash return." (2/7/2017)
  • 5. Daiwa Capital Markets analysts commented, "handily" exceeded expectations in its second-quarter print and raised its 2016 outlook. However, the company's upwardly revised earnings-per-share guidance of $5.50 to $6.00 implies its earnings will actually decline sequentially.Nathan added that he expects further declines in General Motors' earnings in 2017 due to a full year of negative impact in the U.K. due to the Brexit vote. He added that prior tailwind effects of volume and pricing are "subsiding" in North America as "demand momentum slowdown."With that said, Nathan is now expecting General Motors to earn $5.80 per share for the full fiscal year. The estimate implies "limited earnings outperformance potential," (7/22/2016)
