What are Wall Street analysts saying about General Motors stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about General Motors stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past three months, shares of General Motors have underperformed the industry it belongs to. Also, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for both the current quarter and current year earnings has decreased over the past month. The pulling back of discounts is reportedly hurting its sales in recent times. The company expects weak used car pricing, a challenging pricing environment in the U.S. and China as well as more pressure on commodity costs. Also, the company is facing a high inventory level of passenger cars. It is working toward bringing the inventory down by cutting production." (9/5/2018)
  • 2. Bank of America Corp analysts commented, "gets it." The firm's John Murphy upgraded General Motors' stock rating from Neutral to Buy with a price target boosted from $40 to $57 (see Murphy's track record here).General Motors management time is showing investors it is dedicated to pursuing expansion opportunities at an "accelerated pace" while simultaneously maintaining the "strength" of its core truck and global auto business, Murphy argued in his upgrade note. Specifically, the company's ability to include autonomous electric vehicles into a ride-hailing fleet that is integrated with OnStar gives it a "unique competitive first mover position."As General Motors develops and commercializes its technology over time, the company will at the very least be able to "defend its current market share in whatever direction the new mobility world morphs into," the analyst said. But the more likely scenario would consist of the company offering a "more valuable mobility product" that will drive shareholder value higher.At this time, General Motors' vision of its future implies that management now "deserves the benefit of the doubt" and investors should treat the stock accordingly, Murphy said."We are acutely aware of the cyclical risks that represent a material overhang and are the biggest impediment to upside in the stock," Murphy concluded. "Nonetheless, we think GM possesses the requisite pieces of the puzzle to capitalize on the opportunities presented by thechanging mobility landscape, while leveraging the strength of its core auto business."
