Second, the U.S. government still holds a pile of GM stock. If the government were to sell its holdings, GM may have to pay a premium for it. Third, GM's latest products have done well, but this product strength needs to continue. GM has a reputation for making so-so cars and more than one good product year is needed to reverse this perception.
