Why Is GM's Stock Taking Off?

General Motors' (NYSE: GM  ) stock hasn't done well since its post-bankruptcy return to the public markets in 2010. Shares did go up a bit from the General's $33 IPO price, but then they slid sharply, falling below $20 last summer.

Since then, though, GM has put together a nice little rally. In this video, Fool contributor John Rosevear looks at the factors driving GM's recent increase, and at whether this is a blip -- or the beginning of a bull run for America's largest automaker.

Few companies lead to such strong feelings as General Motors. But ignoring emotions to make good investing decisions is hard. The Fool's premium GM research service tells you the truth about GM's growth potential in coming years, and how you can profit from what's in store for the General.

    What you didn't mention, the corp. income taxes GM will not be paying for years per Obamaruptcy. Remember, GM didn't go through a court ordered bankruptcy. GM went through a gov. orchestraated bankruptcy, where TARP participants as GM were given special income tax benefits. This will allow GM to save more in income taxes that GM actually nets in China in

    2013. 2012 GM's corp. tax rate - 0%, Ford's - 26%.
