General Motors (GM) just jumped after a short upbeat earnings call, and deservedly so, as it has lagged the market considerably since 2011. I’m going to take this opportunity to give CEO Barra some credit. A lot of exciting stuff is happening at General Motors, like 1) its operations are throwing off cash; 2) they are cutting loose underperforming parts; 3) there’s future optionality here; 4) it’s returning money to shareholders.
GM data by YCharts
General Motors is selling a lot of cars right now and if you look at net cash provided by operating activities it runs at nearly $14 billion. Not bad for a company with a $60 billion market cap.
