Stock Market Recovers From Wild Trading Day

General Motors tops estimates

U.S. stock indexes rose on Tuesday after a severe selloff on Friday and Monday, which was disconnected from fundamentals.

Shares of General Motors Co. (NYSE:GM) gained in premarket trading on Tuesday on the back of the company reporting its financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. The company posted earnings of $1.65 per share on revenue of $37.7 billion. The company beat earnings estimates of 27 cents and revenue expectations by $1.15 billion. Total revenues declined 5.5% year over year.

For full-year 2017, the company posted adjusted earnings of $6.62 share, an EBIT-adjusted margin of 8.8% and a North America EBIT-adjusted margin of 10.7%.

Those figures were driven by strength in North America and China. South America was also profitable. It was another year of record earnings and margins.
