The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes and consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Brendan gives three reasons to buy big domestic automaker General Motors. The company should continue to capitalize on pent-up demand for vehicles in the U.S., where GM is the market share leader. GM is also the market leader in China, the world's biggest auto market, and should continue to do well there as industrywide sales hit an incredible 30 million units by 2020. Finally, the main reason to buy GM is that the company is simply dirt cheap. Trading at less than five times forward earnings, Brendan thinks this stock is a steal today.
