General Motors’s Positive Outlook Will Please These Top Institutional Shareholders

General Motors (NYSE:GM) CEO Dan Akerson struck an optimistic note on Wednesday, predicting that the American auto market will remain strong for at least another four to five years, Reuters is reporting. Pent-up demand will spread out over that time frame, as drivers move to replace their aging vehicles, and many were unable to do so during the financial flatline. ”There’s this underlying strength that may go for the next four or five years until we get it back to eight, nine (year) range of average age of the car …” in the United States, Akerson said on the CNBC cable news channel. The average age for a vehicle right now is 11 years, an all-time high.
