13:54 EDTFEarnings Preview: General Motors sentiment positive ahead of Q1 report
General Motors Company (GM) is expected to report first quarter earnings on Wednesday, April 23 before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET. General Motors is a global designer and builder of cars, trucks and automobile parts. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 97c on revenue of $37.61B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 85c-$1.07 on revenue of $35.71B-$39.36B. LAST QUARTER: GM reported fourth quarter adjusted EPS of $1.19 against estimates for 83c on revenue of $40.5B against estimates for $40.12B. In Q4, GM reported the following: Retail vehicle sales of 2.55M units; Total U.S. retail vehicle sales of 727K units and total North America retail vehicle sales of 854K units; Europe retail sales of 298K units; APMEA retail sales of 1.165M units; South America retail vehicle sales of 236K units; Total worldwide automotive market share of 11.4%, with total U.S. market share of 17.4%; Total Europe share of 6.3% and total APMEA share of 10.5%; North America capacity utilization of 98.9%. GM announced it intends to increase the second quarter dividend on its common stock by 20% to 36c per share. On March 9, GM announced a $5B share repurchase program. On April 22, GM said it sold 2.4M vehicles globally in Q1, up 2% from last year. Sales in China increased 9% and deliveries in North America were up 6%. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been mostly positive in the weeks leading up to GMs Q1 earnings report. On February 5, Craig-Hallum upgraded General Motors to Buy from Hold. The analyst said the company's Q4 report was superb and expects a very strong year ahead given recall issues that are mostly behind it and a continuation of impressive truck/SUV sales. Additionally, Craig-Hallum expects more shareholder-friendly actions following the announcement of a 20% common dividend increase. They raised their price target on the shares to $44 from $34. On March 10, Citigroup raised its price target for shares of General Motors to $50 from $49 saying the car maker's "earnings and overlooked progress" should hold more weight now that its capital allocation is in place. The firm continues to believe shares will trade at premium to Ford (F) by the end of 2015. It thinks the GM bears have "run out of excuses" and kept a Buy rating on the name. PRICE ACTION: GM shares have gained approximately 8% since Q4 results were released and notched a 52-week high of $38.99 in March. In afternoon trading ahead of Wednesday's Q1 report, GM shares are down 0.4%.

06:50 EDTFTesla price target slashed to $165 at JPMorgan
After lowering its earnings estimates to reflect adverse currency moves, higher operating costs and slower than earlier expected Model X ramp, JPMorgan cut its price target for Tesla shares to $165 from $175. The stock closed Friday up 9c to $206.79. The firm dropped its Q1 earnings estimate to (38c) from (31c) despite the increase in Q1 deliveries preannounced by the electric car maker. JPMorgan keeps an Underweight rating on Tesla, the firm's equivalent to a sell. It maintains Overweight ratings on Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) with price targets of $19 and $46, respectively, ahead of the Q1 reporting season.
