General Motors shares rebound on Friday, company’s Chevrolet Blazer to be manufactured in Mexico

June 25, 2018 9:50 am

According to a spokesperson for General Motors Company (GM), the auto maker intends to proceed with its plan to build its new Chevrolet Blazer sport-utility vehicle in Mexico.

General Motors shares closed higher for the third time in the past seven trading sessions in New York on Friday. The stock edged up 0.32% ($0.13) to $41.25, with the intraday high and the intraday low being at $41.75 and $40.94 respectively.

Shares of General Motors Company have risen 0.63% so far in 2018 compared with a 3.04% gain for the underlying index, S&P 500 (SPX).

In 2017, General Motors’ stock surged 17.65%, thus, it again underperformed the S&P 500, which registered a 19.42% return.

The United Auto Workers union considered such a move as a disappointment. “This is all happening while UAW-GM workers here in the U.S. are laid off and unemployed”, the UAW union said in a statement, cited by Reuters.

Auto makers have been under pressure by the Trump administration to increase the number of vehicles built in the United States, as the government has been trying to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

US President Trump has also, on multiple occasions in the past, spoken against GM building vehicles in Mexico, which are then imported and sold in the United States.

NAFTA has been deemed successful, in auto makers’ view, as it enables them to integrate their production across North America and also boosts their competitiveness with other parts of the world such as Europe and Asia.

According to CNN Money, the 17 analysts, offering 12-month forecasts regarding General Motors Company’s stock price, have a median target of $52.00, with a high estimate of $70.00 and a low estimate of $39.00. The median estimate represents a 26.06% upside compared to the closing price of $41.25 on June 22nd.

The same media also reported that 13 out of 20 surveyed investment analysts had rated General Motors Company’s stock as “Buy”, while 7 – as “Hold”.
