08:08 EDTGMTreasury to fully exit stake in GM within 12-15 months
The U.S. Department of the Treasury plans to fully exit its entire holdings of GM stock within 12 to 15 months, subject to market conditions. Treasury has announced its intention to sell its remaining shares of common stock into the market through various means and in an orderly fashion. GM will purchase 200M shares of GM common stock held by Treasury for $5.5B, or $27.50 per share, with plans for that buyback to close by the end of 2012. After the repurchase, Treasury will continue to own approximately 300M shares of GM common stock, or approximately 19 percent of the outstanding shares on a fully diluted basis. Treasury intends to begin its disposition of its remaining shares as soon as January 2013, consistent with a pre-arranged written trading plan. In addition, Treasury has agreed to relinquish certain governance rights that were included in the U.S. Treasury Secured Credit Agreement with GM.

08:01 EDTGMStifel says evidence supports Apple moving into electric vehicles
Analysts at Stifel say they see enough evidence to suggest that Apple is internally working on the development of a battery electric vehicle to be sold over the next five-to-ten years. The analysts are "intrigued" by Apple CFO Luca Maestri's background at General Motors (GM). They believe Apple's investments in manufacturing should be a key consideration for investors and point out the $40B spent by the iPhone maker over the past five years, with 80%-plus invested in manufacturing, is similar to GM, Ford (F) and Daimler-Benz and well above Tesla's $1.8B cumulative capex. The analysts say there is a "lot to think about" regarding Apple's move into the car space, including the regulatory environment. They keep a Buy rating on the tech giant with a $150 price target. Shares of Apple closed yesterday down 97c to $127.50.
