What are analysts saying about General Motors Company stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about General Motors Company stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "General Motors' capital allocation strategy, initiatives to make its vehicles more advanced, safer and fuel efficient and focus on technology development are likely to benefit. Moreover, the company's focus on capital deployment is expected to boost shareholder returns. Its restructuring activities are also expected to benefit in the long run. Also, the company is raising investment in emerging markets to boost global sales. It is looking to take advantage of emerging markets growth via product launches and joint ventures. However, General Motors has underperformed the Zacks categorized Auto Manufacturers-Domestic industry over the last six months." (6/21/2017)
- 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."

Consensus Ratings for General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
