With shares of General Motors (NYSE:GM) trading around $40, is GM an OUTPERFORM, WAIT AND SEE, or STAY AWAY? Let’s analyze the stock with the relevant sections of our CHEAT SHEET investing framework:

T = Trends for a Stock’s Movement

General Motors designs, manufactures, and markets cars, crossovers, trucks, and automobile parts worldwide. The company markets its vehicles primarily under the Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Opel, Holden, and Vauxhall brand names, as well as under the Alpheon, Jiefang, Baojun, and Wuling brand names. It sells cars and trucks to dealers for consumer retail sales as well as to fleet customers in daily rental car companies, commercial fleet customers, leasing companies, and governments.

General Motors’ North American head said he believes the automaker will see a sales bump once the U.S. government exits its remaining stake in the company. Anonymous sources also told the Wall Street Journal that the government could sell its remaining stock in General Motors as soon as this week. The government has said that it plans to leave the company by the end of the year; the U.S. Treasury still owns 31.1 million shares in the Detroit-based automaker. GM has bounced back since its bailout in 2009 but still suffers from an image problem because of the government assistance, including the disparaging nickname “Government Motors.”
