07:30 EDTGMGeneral Motors retreats in pre-market after analyst downgrades shares
GM shares are falling in pre-market trading after RBC Capital downgraded the stock to Sector Perform from Outperform, citing weak auto trends in North America and overly optimistic targets by the company. WHAT'S NEW: In North America, GM will face slowing demand, negative pricing trends, and higher regulatory and content costs, RBC Capital analyst Joseph Spak wrote in a note to investors today. The company's target for 10% profit margins in North America appears to be optimistic, given competition from the major Japanese automakers, which are benefiting from yen weakness, the analyst stated. Similarly, GM's Cadillac sales targets also seem ambitious, as it faces competition from German competitors that are in a strong position in North America and have a foothold in China, according to Spak. The analyst reduced his price target on the stock to $35 from $41. PRICE ACTION: In early pre-market trading, GM fell nearly 1% to $30.75.
