GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on General Motors Co

Third Avenue Value Fund Comments on General Motors Co - Dec 12, 2014

General Motors (GM): The Benefits of Looking Under the Hood



GM, one of the largest automotive companies in the world, has been on the receiving end of much criticism over the last five years. So much so, that its stock price dropped to levels below its 2010 IPO of $30 per share. Much of this criticism has been well deserved. A high profile bankruptcy coupled with long-term pension woes have turned investors off from this company. GM further compounded its problems earlier in the year by getting embroiled in a high profile ignition recall scandal.



In late September, amidst all the negative recall headlines, S&P upgraded GM's debt to investment grade. The report caught our attention and inspired us to look under GM's hood. Indeed, negative sentiment corresponds to a dated perception of GM. GM today is very different from the company that, saddled by debt and management problems, filed for bankruptcy in 2009. Today, the century old automaker has a clean and strong balance sheet, significantly streamlined operations and is one of the most attractively valued large caps in the US.



Everything we do at Third Avenue starts with the balance sheet. We were happy to learn that GM's automotive unit was carrying a net cash balance of $20 billion, which is impressive considering that GM's market capitalization is only around $50 billion. During GM's analyst day in October, the CFO referred to its priority of maintaining a "fortress-like” balance sheet. We like that! GM is sharing the wealth too with a current dividend of 4%, which appears sustainable given GM's strong financial position.



In the past, management had a propensity to postpone tough decisions, leaving the company vulnerable to steep losses. Management is now positioning the company for less boom and bust results. One fact that resonated with us was that GM had lost $7 billion in North America in 2006 despite higher car sales than current levels. Now sales are lower, but GM is on pace to earn $8 billion in North America this year. Head-count and platforms have been reduced so now GM's break-even levels are over 30% lower than before the crisis. Overseas, GM still has work to do to restore consistent profitability. Cost cutting programs in other geographies are harder to implement. Despite taking a dour outlook on future overseas earnings, we still felt GM's valuation was heavily discounted. The struggles overseas obscure GM’s success in China. China is the largest car market in the world. GM has a long, distinguished history in China and currently holds 14% market share and is generating roughly $2billion in profits through a joint venture relationship, primarily on the local strength of its Buick brand. Moreover, its projected that China will be the largest luxury market in the world by the end of the decade and GM is confident that its Cadillac brand is well positioned to grow with this trend. Furthermore, GM has substantially improved its pension plans and the liabilities are at manageable levels. If interest rates rise, as many expect, those liabilities could improve dramatically.



One of the more common concerns investors have regarding GM is that car sales in the US will decline. We don't share that view. Although sales have improved from the bottom in 2009, they aren't back to 2006 levels. Most importantly, the average age of vehicles remains elevated: 40% of vehicles on the road in the US are over 12 years old. We believe the replacement cycle will last longer than people expect. In addition, fuel efficient cars and enhanced technology in vehicles will drive future sales as well. Although we believe the negative thesis on GM is over-done, we acknowledge that there are risks to this investment. As discussed in the previous paragraph, our thesis hinges to some extent on GM having a strong business in the US, thus a slowdown of the US economy may have a negative impact on this investment. Auto manufacturing is a cyclical business, and we took this into consideration as we conservatively estimated our NAV for GM.



Finally, recalls are a risk of investing in any automotive company, but we are comfortable with that risk given GM's strong balance sheet and current cash flows. Third Avenue's credit team has studied the company closely over the last five years and gave us valuable insights in assessing the risks to this investment.



A lot has transpired in GM since the bankruptcy in terms of balance sheet improvement and streamlining of the business. As value investors it is hard to pass on such an attractively priced company, in spite of (or maybe even because of) the excessive negative sentiment it has generated. After a very detailed look under the hood of GM, we think that the “new” GM is an attractive use of your and our capital.

Bill Nygren Comments on General Motors - Jul 11, 2013

General Motors (GM – $33)(GM)
General Motors is the largest U.S.-based car and truck manufacturer. A high cost structure and a mountain of employee pension and post-retirement healthcare liabilities put GM into bankruptcy in 2009. A restructured GM - smaller, more efficient, and unburdened of most unfunded off-balance sheet liabilities – came back to the public equity market in 2010 at a price of $33. Despite a strong stock market, GM stock traded at only $27 earlier this year. We have been positive on the prospects for the auto market, believing that many investors focus too much on auto demand cycles in the U.S. and Europe, instead of on the strong secular growth in emerging markets, which now account for more sales than either the U.S. or Europe. And despite GM’s struggles, it has built very strong positions in these growing markets while maintaining its dominant, and highly profitable, position in North American pick-up trucks. We believe that with a management team that can now focus on building cars and trucks, instead of serving its retirees, and with a stock priced at less than 8 times 2014 earnings estimates, GM has become an attractive investment.
