"2019 was likely to be a great year for GM but that's not going to happen now."

Morning Star Equity Strategist David Whiston on the impact of the UAW strike on General Motors.

  • One of America’s largest automakers performed better than analysts expected for the last 3 months.
  • However, the company lowered its forecast for this year and next, mainly due to the impact of the 40 day strike by the UAW – the longest strike since the 1970s.
  • The strike cost the company nearly $4B for 2019 and the lost production of aroundA 300,000 cars.
