Should You Buy General Motors Company (GM)

Analysts think that the market is punishing General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) because the company is not realizing its huge potential. It’s almost a consensus amongst major analysts that GM is highly undervalued. Recently, Morgan Stanley said in a report that GM has a potential to cross $50 mark if its management could reposition Cadillac against Tesla and take steps to unlock shareholder value.

General Motors is expected to gain from its rising sales in China. In the US, things have started to take a good turn as auto sales in August jumped 4.1%. Another excellent reason to buy General Motors is that legendary investor Warren Buffett is among the top shareholders of the company.

Over the current book year the total revenue will be 147,81 billion USD (consensus estimates). This is hugely lower than 2016's revenue of 166,38 billion USD.
