Why General Motors Stock Is Hitting The Brakes Today - General Motors (NYSE:GM)

General Motors Co GM shares are trading lower Tuesday after Ford Motor Co F shares fell following the company’s warning that part shortages will impact its third-quarter results. 

Ford said supply shortages will result in a higher number of vehicles (between 40,000 and 45,000) in its inventory awaiting parts at the end of the third quarter. The vehicles largely consist of high-demand, high-margin models of popular trucks and SUVs.

Ford also noted that inflation-related supplier costs during the third quarter will be about $1 billion higher than originally expected. As a result, the company now anticipates third-quarter adjusted EBIT to be in a range of $1.4 billion to $1.7 billion. Full-year adjusted EBIT is still expected to be between $11.5 billion and $12.5 billion.
