On its Q3 earnings report, GM CEO Daniel Akerson said the quarter was "solid in almost all respects," however European weakness was expected to impact business for several years. Management anticipated a 2,600 headcount reduction in Europe for 2012, with future reductions pegged to overall demand. On January 3, the company said 2013 industry sales should rise to 15M-15.5M units due to a strong finish to 2012, industry momentum, and the overall health of the U.S. economy...

On February 13, Buckingham reiterated its Buy rating on GM, expecting it to beat consensus estimates based on strong performance in North America, GMSA, and GMIO. On December 24, GM was reinstated with a Buy rating and a target price of $35 at Goldman Sachs. On November 1, Craig Hallum upgraded GM to a Buy from a Hold based on cheap valuation and new vehicle redesigns. The firm raised its price target on the shares to $30... PRICE ACTION: GM shares have rallied approximately 20% since Q3 results were released in late October, making a fresh 52-week high of $30.68 in January.
