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 is witnessing the changing of the guard in many aspects of its business. Mary Barra, the automaker’s CEO-in-waiting, will succeed Dan Akerson in 2o14, while the U.S. Government no longer holds shares of GM stock. In China, the world’s largest automobile market, GM will have a new president take over while watching Volkswagen (VLKAY.PK) likely become the sales leader among foreign automakers after GM’s eight-year reign, Bloomberg reports.
