A word of caution: Only 8 years of data is available for shares of GM, perhaps insufficient to create a seasonal profile that accurately gauges the seasonal tendencies influencing the investment. Ideally, while 20 years is preferred, at least 10 years of data is required to perform a seasonal analysis that is considered to be reliable for future seasonal periods.

General Motors Co. emerged from the bankruptcy of General Motors Corp. (old GM) in July 2009. GM has eight brands and operates under three segments: GM North America, GM International, and GM Financial. The United States now has four brands instead of eight. The company remains the market leader in the U.S. with 17% share in 2018. GM Financial became the company’s captive finance arm in October 2010 via the purchase of AmeriCredit.
