It faces some stiff competition in the quarters ahead in improving its EPS and revenue-per-share. Yet shares of GM have a price-to-earnings-to-growth (PEG) ratio (5-year expected) of only 0.68. This suggests that the stock price isn't overvalued and may still be considered a bargain. GM has worked hard to be a leader in its industry and it claims to know the definition of success. GM Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson says it best, "We win when the customer says we win." At the new GM, the company has made a strong and open commitment to its customers, employees, partners and stakeholders. Its "five principles that guide us in everything we do":
- Safety and Quality First
- Create Lifelong Customers
- Deliver Long-Term Investment Value
- Make a Positive Difference
Our 212,000 plus employees work in 396 facilities touching six continents; they speak more than 50 languages and touch 23 time zones.With that attitude toward customers and employees GM's immediate future looks solid and shines bright. As long as it holds to the five principles that it claims guides them "in everything we do" the future may include the greatest accomplishments in its 105-year old history.
