In this video, Blake Bos outlines three risks to General Motors:

  • GM rides the highs and lows of the economy. If the European economy falls flat, for example, GM will feel it in its earnings.
  • A substantial unfunded pension liability will eat into earnings for the next few years.
  • Corporate culture has begun to improve, as its high-quality popular new cars bear out. Will the trend continue, or will GM slip back into its past habits of mediocrity?
