On Thursday's edition of The Motley Fool's MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson take a deep Foolish dive into today's top investing stories.

Shares of General Motors were up today on the news that the U.S. Treasury Department would be selling its remaining shares of GM by the end of the year. The sale will allow the government to recoup $39.6 billion of its original $49.5 billion GM investment. In this segment of MarketFoolery, Matt and David discuss why this will be good for GM in the long run and why the government could have benefited from holding on to its shares longer.
