Better Buy Now: Ford or General Motors?

The two big U.S. automakers have been on a tear recently, with both Ford and General Motors rising around 50% in the past year. While these stocks may not be dirt cheap anymore, analyst Brendan Byrnes thinks there's still opportunity in this space.

Both a Ford and GM shareholder, Brendan says that when forced to pick which stock he would buy right now, he picks Ford. He says he likes Ford's dividend, its cheaper valuation, the opportunity it has in China, and its more ambitious European plan. Check out the following video, in which Brendan talks with Fool contributor Andrew Tonner, for more on how these two big automakers compare.

    Here in America Ford has the Focus, and its powerhouse pickup truck line. GM missed the mark on its new pickup, and doesn't have anything close to the Focus. Then there is Ford's financial strategy. Ford didn't go to DC for taxpayer money back in 09, and Americans remember that. GM has Opel around its neck, but has some cool niche cars, but not enough to really drive profits like Ford has. GM also has a much larger pension fund to feed as more baby boomers retire, and that will drain GM's piggy bank. GM may have to offer its hourly pensioners a buyout similar to the one last year for its salaried retirees. Fords pension worries are not as bad as GM’s.
