What?

General Motors(NYSE:GM) expects its first-half financial results to be significantly better than initially guided. Although the company didn’t give updated numbers, it previously forecasted an adjusted operating income of about $5.5 billion for H1.

Why?

GM company is shifting its relatively scarce stock of semiconductors to scale up production of its higher-margin trucks such as the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra sold in the North American market.

So What?

GM stock gained almost 6% over trading on Thursday and Friday and remains up by over 50% year-to-date. We believe that the stock has room for further gains as the semiconductor shortage eases.
