Electric cars are the future. But Tesla is heading down on fears of slowing demand. That leaves General Motors, which also sells a lot of cars and trucks and has gotten a lot leaner, as a better play.
In one of his first interviews after being elected US president, Donald Trump bemoaned the proliferation of Mercedes-Benz cars on New York’s Fifth Avenue. What Mr Trump did not know, or acknowledge, is that Mercedes-owner Daimler has one of the highest-value car plants in the US.
Spoiler alert … I prefer General Motors (NYSE:GM) stock over Ford (NYSE:F) stock right now. But before you judge my choice, know that I would own both here and will share the levels that matter for either.The auto manufacturing sector is on the cusp of massive changes. The world is trying to make the shift from internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric cars. Although we've had them since 1890, it took Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) to popularize them. But for now, electric cars still are but a sliver of the ICE market, so the battle is far from over.Then there is another trend in autos that is sure to be the future, and that's autonomous driving. While the impression is that it's just around the corner, true autonomy is decades away. Meanwhile, we will likely have several layers of driver assist features and our manufacturers like General Motors and Ford are already on board.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsEven tech companies got into the fray. In fact Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) is the parent company of Waymo, which is arguably the one that will be first to bring autonomous vehicles to market. So Which Is the Better Bet: GM or Ford Stock?Call me wish-washy, because I like both but for different reasons time frames.Fundamentally, they are both incredibly cheap, as they sell at around 0.3 times sales. For absolute comparisons, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Tesla sell for 3x and 2x sales. Moreover GM and Ford pay a hefty dividend of 4% and 6%. * 6 Stocks to Buy for This Decade's Massive Megatrend While both are cheap, GM is my clear winner right now. It sells at only a 5.7 trailing price-to-earnings ratio, compared to Ford stock's trailing P/E of 12.6. For some reason, Wall Street is now willing to pay more than double for F stock what it would for GM stock, and I disagree with them.Ford is vulnerable short term because of the gap below. The stock soared on good results in its last earnings report, but usually traders likes to fill open gaps. Not all of them of course but this one is too close and large to ignore here.Nevertheless, if Ford stock falls closer to $9.60 and covers it I'd go long it. I can then buy the shares outright or use the options markets where I can leverage time and reduce the out-of-pocket expenses for the trade.GM also has a gap, but after a hideous -4% Wednesday and some more today, it's almost completely filled. Besides, this gap is but a fraction the size of the one that Ford has, so it's less of a magnet. Wall Street is more likely to ignore it open for longer, if not forever. Other Current GM Stock PlussesAnother reason I prefer GM over Ford stock here is the leadership.Since Mary Barra took the GM helm, she has made the company competent at navigating a barrage of obstacles. They are thereby faster to make the moves they need to make to stay ahead of the trend. They've even recently done so knowing they risk negative repercussions from the White House. I have no doubt that Ms. Barra has proven herself worthy of the risk. So for the long term, I am more comfortable owning GM stock knowing this team is in charge.But there are short-term lines that matter for General Motors stock. The zone at and just below $35 needs to hold and serve as a base for bulls to mount a bounce rally. The S&P 500 technically is in danger this week of losing an important neckline. If lost, it could trigger a 5% market-wide correction and that will test the GM support. Size the risk appropriately, knowing this.To state it simply, both General Motors and Ford are attractive here. I prefer GM over F stock, but not by much, and it's a matter of technical preference.Wall Street experts agree with me, since most analysts have Ford as a hold, as it trades at their average price target. Meanwhile they have GM as a buy and it trades well below its average target.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

Ford plans to have two-legged robots and self-driving cars team up on deliveries as it gears to roll out robotaxis in two years.
General Motors Corp. (NYSE: GM), looking to build on the growth in demand for its vehicle trunks to serve as delivery nodes, is exploring expansion opportunities with carriers and retailers outside of its current 13-month relationship with e-tailer Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), a GM executive said in a May 21 interview. Speaking with FreightWaves, Stephen London, GM's head of connected vehicle solutions, said the automaker is looking to bring other delivery companies into its network, as well as retailers that want to offer their customers the same level of convenience that Amazon provides members of its "Prime" service. London did not provide details of discussions with either prospective stakeholder group.
"Digit is a two-legged robot designed and built by Agility Robotics to not only approximate the look of a human, but to walk like one, too." So says a press release from Ford touting the automaker's partnership with the company that builds high-tech robots that unfurl from the back of a van and in the process look a little too much like the droids from the Battle of Naboo. Digit is capable of carrying packages weighing as much as 40 pounds and dropping them off at someone's front door, traversing over uneven terrain, climbing and descending stairs, and avoiding obstacles in its path. The data necessary to make this final step of the delivery process would theoretically be shared from a self-driving delivery vehicle.
The United States' second largest carmaker has been moving steadily on the development of full-service autonomous driving vans which it could potentially license out to companies ranging from Domino's Pizza to Lyft or Target. It launched a self-driving pilot with delivery partners including Domino's in Miami last year, and it said it was working on the best way to integrate Agility's two-legged robot, Digit, into future vans. Digit is capable of lifting packages that weigh up to 40 pounds, can walk up and down stairs and through uneven terrain, while maintaining its balance after being bumped, Ford said http://bit.ly/2Jy47T5.
