Shares of General Motors Co. GM,

Rosner believes an EV spinoff would force the market to recognize its EV technology and upcoming lineup of cars, “unlocking large shareholder value, giving the new entity access to cheap capital and giving the new entity the opportunity to excel at high talent” He said an evaluation of potential valuation results could value GM’s share between $ 28 and up to $ 93, representing a decline from 2.5% to more than three times (up 224%) from current levels. rival Ford Motor Co.
