General Motors very cheap: Bill Nygren
Discussing the recall crisis facing General Motors Company (NYSE:GM), and whether the stock is still attractive, with Bill Nygren, Oakmark Fund portfolio manager.
Yes, we’re large General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) shareholders. The stock in the mid-30s, we think that within a couple year, they should be able to earn $6 a share. It made it is a very low p.e. for this market. And we’ve seen before, you know, Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE:TM) (TYO:7203) go through short-term p.r. crises, and other auto companies, also, and they tend to recover. and we think general motors will regain its market share if they lose some because of the current p.r. environment. and just, it’s a very, very cheap stock. you don’t have to believe this is anywhere near an average company to believe it should be selling at a higher price than it currently is.
