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, "General Motors’ first-quarter 2018 earnings and revenues beat the Zacks Consensus Estimates. During the quarter, crossover sales rose 23% on a year-over-year basis. However, both earnings and revenues declined on a year over year basis. Also, company’s capital allocation strategy, initiatives to make its vehicles more advanced, safer and fuel efficient and focus on technology development are likely to benefit. 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. However, frequent vehicle recalls, high inventory level of passenger cars and unfavorable currency translation effects are few headwinds for the company." (5/9/2018)
- 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."
