Is General Motors Company (GM) a Buy?

GM

Competitive victories over some of its most important rivals followed, and General Motors looks a lot healthier financially than it has throughout much of its history. The auto industry is notoriously cyclical, and after several years of record sales, some wonder whether General Motors is due for a cooldown. Yet that negative sentiment has been around for a while now without industry conditions deteriorating to nearly the extent that some had expected, and a closer look is necessary to see whether GM is a good buy for investors right now. Overall, U.S. sales volumes fell 1.3% during 2017 from the previous year, but most of those declines came from planned contractions in sales to rental-car fleets, which have historically had relatively weak profit margin associated with them. Although demand for its sedan vehicles fell sharply, GM was able to drive sales of its crossover sport-utility vehicles to impressive gains and mostly offset weakness elsewhere. General Motors still has to deal with the capital requirements of the auto industry, and that requires plenty of reinvestment into its business. Even after coming out of bankruptcy, GM wasn't able to get rid of debt entirely, and the automaker has seen its long-term debt levels rise gradually in recent years.

A Look Into Ford and General Motors' Secret Weapons During the First Quarter

GM F

Daniel Miller, The Motley FoolMotley FoolMay 18, 2018. Some investors are still surprised when they find out that the financial divisions of Ford Motor Co.(NYSE: F) and General Motors(NYSE: GM) are among the most profitable parts of the automakers' operations. As long as they dish out loans responsibly, and residual values on their off-lease cars remain stable, those financing arms are quite lucrative. But if they start signing riskier loans, or used car prices decline (or both) those units can turn from huge profit centers into equally huge money losers -- which is just how it played out during the Great Recession. For that reason, it's important to keep an eye on how automakers' lending units are doing. First-quarter highlights. Ford Credit generated $641 million of the company's $2.19 billion in adjusted-EBIT for the first quarter. In its South America, Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific markets, the automaker lost a combined $322 million. Ford Credit's $641 million EBT was a massive 33% jump over the prior year's result, with a broad range of driving forces, as you can see below. Most importantly, the auction values it garnered for off-lease vehicles were higher than expected, which drove lease residual value higher. Ford remains disciplined in its underwriting; the percentage of higher-risk loans in the mix is only about 6%, and it has largely been at that level for at least the past couple of years.
