Ford, GM stock prices soar in year’s first week
Domestic auto stocks closed the first week of 2013 with some of the highest stock prices in more than a year.
Ford Motor Co. shares closed Friday at $13.57 per share, the highest price since July 2011.
General Motors Co. shares closed at $29.86, also the highest closing price for the Detroit automaker since the summer of 2011.
The two stocks have rallied all week — much like the rest of the stock market — following a fiscal cliff resolution that made permanent most of the Bush-era tax cuts and delayed massive spending cuts.
Both automakers posted strong year-end sales numbers on Thursday, and analysts predict more auto sales gains in 2013.
