The Main Reason Ford and GM Are Back -- for Good

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which the Fool's Brendan Byrnes and Andrew Tonner discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Andrew discuss the auto industry, which is a product-driven industry. That's why it's critically important that an automaker delivers good, reliable vehicles. A recent JDPower survey lists automakers based on the quality of their three-year-old cars. There were some surprises on the list, including impressive showings from the two biggest domestic automakers. Find out what this all means for investors.

Brendan thinks both Ford and GM are great buys now, but our analysts have uncovered three other American companies capitalizing from emerging-market growth that also have great potential. As these industry titans look abroad for more sales, they aren't starting with a blank slate -- they're bringing their operational excellence to new markets and thriving. To uncover these picks today, we invite you to read a copy of our free report: "3 American Companies Set to Dominate the World."

    As someone who thinks that GM is a colossal waste of private capital (mainly mine) I have some questions: How can you recommend a stock that fails to pay dividends or appreciate? How can you recommend GM as a good buy when it is worth less now than its IPO (and it has not repaid the tarp money yet)? As of today GM has lost around $6 per share yet are showing record profits, why? These are questions you NEED to answer before advising people to buy any stock you idiots!!! You want a good company to invest in try Ford, 3M, or GE all of which have excellent management teams as opposed to a Union running the show.
