In the global electric car race, Britain is struggling to keep up with its rivals. Fresh investment is dwindling as manufacturers prioritise their home markets to develop new technology, other governments are making bigger promises to attract business and Brexit uncertainty is eroding Britain’s long-held role as the springboard to the rest of Europe. Carmaking in Britain has enjoyed a decades-long renaissance after heavy investment from manufacturers such as Honda, Nissan and Toyota of Japan and Germany’s BMW.

Chevrolet and Honda make popular small and large crossover SUVs but have long lacked a choice in the middle. Interestingly, both companies decided to fill that gap this year with new models that revive nameplates of the past: the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer and the 2019 Honda Passport. Both the Blazer and the Passport will appeal to buyers for whom a compact SUV such as the Honda CR-V or Chevrolet Equinox is too small, yet a three-row crossover SUV such as the Chevrolet Traverse or Honda Pilot is too big.
The Lyft IPO is moving at break-neck speed, but that has some investors looking at alternative investments like Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NADAQ:GOOGL) stock and General Motors (NYSE:GM).Source: Shutterstock Here's why.The Lyft deal may launch late next week on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol LYFT and the company is already on the roadshow (you can view the video here).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsYet Lyft has little choice but to act fast since rival Uber is not far behind. It's all about not getting overshadowed. After all, Uber remains the dominant player in the ride-sharing market and its own IPO will likely suck up huge amounts of capital -- perhaps over $20 billion.As for the Lyft IPO, it will be much more modest in comparison. It appears that the deal will result in a rise of about $2 billion, which is based on the details of the latest S-1 filing.So what are the prospects for the deal? Well, perhaps in the short-term, it will provide traders with opportunities for quick gains. There is quite a bit of pent-up demand for red-hot IPOs right now and Lyft fits the bill.However, in the coming months, we'll likely see more quality companies come to the markets -- like Pinterest and Slack -- and this could marginalize Lyft. Besides, it looks like the valuation will be at nose-bleed levels, at over 10 times last year's revenues. * The 10 Best Stocks to Buy for the Bull Market's Anniversary With all of that in mind, here's why investors might consider GM and GOOGL stock over LYFT in the months ahead. Reasons to Choose GOOGL Stock Over LYFTConsider that GOOGL has a 4.7% stake in Lyft. In other words, if the IPO jumps on its debut -- which seems likely -- the equity position could be worth over $1 billion.Although this may be too little to move the needle for GOOGL stock immediately, a successful Lyft IPO, as well as a solid Uber offering, could ultimately boost the fortunes of the company. The reason: Waymo. Founded in 2009, it is the self-driving unit of GOOGL and it has been a major priority. There have not only been strides with AI, such as with deep learning models, but also the creation of cost-effective sensors.About a year ago, Waymo initiated a pilot program for a self-driving taxi service in Phoenix, Arizona. And in December, there was the launch of the commercial service called Waymo One.Here's how a blog from Alphabet describes it:"We'll start by giving riders access to our app. They can use it to call our self-driving vehicles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can ride across several cities in the Metro Phoenix area, including Chandler, Tempe, Mesa, and Gilbert. Whether it's for a fun night out or just to get a break from driving, our riders get the same clean vehicles every time and our Waymo driver with over 10 million miles of experience on public roads. Riders will see price estimates before they accept the trip based on factors like the time and distance to their destination."It's still in the early phases. But Waymo could be disruptive for Lyft as human drivers are a significant cost. The company's S-1 filing notes: "If we are unable to efficiently develop our own autonomous vehicle technologies or develop partnerships with other companies to offer autonomous vehicle technologies on our platform in a timely manner, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be adversely affected."But regarding GOOGL stock, there is much more than self-driving cars to drive growth. The company has a wide array of assets that have over 1 billion users, such as the main Google search engine, YouTube, Gmail, Maps, Chrome, Android and Play. The company is also pouring money into R&D for critical areas, such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality and the Internet-of-Things. What's more, GOOGL stock is trading at a reasonable valuation, with a forward price-to-earnings multiple at 22X or so. Reasons to Choose GM Stock Over LYFTGeneral Motors (NYSE:GM) has an even larger stake in Lyft, at nearly 7% (the initial investment was for $500 million). Given that the market cap is about $53 billion, the IPO may provide a boost to the GM stock price.But the partnership between GM and Lyft has not gotten much traction. Perhaps the reason is that GM has been focused on creating its own autonomous vehicle business, through the $1 billion acquisition of Cruise in 2016. Since then, the company has gone on to snag hefty investments from Softbank (OTCMKTS:SFTBY) and Honda (NYSE:HMC) -- for a valuation of $14.6 billion. Cruise currently has over 1,000 employees and it has been aggressively striking partnerships, such as an agreement with Doordash. * 7 Financial Stocks to Invest In Today Who knows, maybe this until will eventually be an IPO too.But in the meantime, the core business behind GM stock has been doing just fine, especially in North America. For the full-year, the company expects operating profits to increase by about 20%.GM stock is certainly trading at a dirt-cheap valuation, as the forward price-to-earnings multiple is at 6X. The dividend is also at an attractive 4%.Ultimately, these two companies offer solid alternatives to the LYFT IPO if you're an investor that's interested in taking advantage of the potential excitement surrounding its debut but want to play on the safer side of things.Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.

Japanese carmaker Honda said any delay to Brexit must be long enough to give businesses stability whilst BMW is still preparing for a "worst-case scenario" no-deal Brexit after lawmakers backed postponing Britain's exit from the EU. The country's car sector, which employs more than 850,000 people, has quickly gone from a manufacturing success story to posting drops in investment, sales and output. Honda, which builds just over 10 percent of Britain's 1.5 million cars, announced earlier this year that it would close its factory, in the biggest blow to the sector in many years, but said the decision was not due to Brexit.

This saw the infaltor rupture and send out shrapnel that hurt a passenger's arm."Moisture within the sealed inflator may lead to accelerated propellant degradation over time, leading to higher than normal inflator pressure upon airbag deployment. If a recalled driver front airbag deploys in a crash, its inflator may rupture, potentially shooting sharp metal fragments at the driver and passengers." * The 10 Best Stocks to Buy for the Bull Market's Anniversary The vehicles that make up the Honda recall 2019 list are part of a previous airbag recall.

For my wife's birthday in late October, I had planned to surprise her with a trip to Florida. Scrambling on a Friday morning to make sure we had far too much stuff than we'd need, and ensuring we have our large son Wollie's haul from the office Halloween party at hand for sustenance, we loaded into the Ridgeline, and hit the highway to Grand Rapids. After a couple hours, we arrived at Woodland Travel Center, where the friendly folks there gave us a tour of the slick, shiny Airstream Basecamp X trailer, which is essentially the same as the standard Basecamp, but with a lift kit and some other goodies that make it ready for more rugged terrain.
