Below are the three companies in the Automobile Manufacturers industry with the highest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

General Motors (NYSE:GM) is highest with forward earnings yield of 8.0%. General Motors Co. manufactures and markets new cars and trucks. The Company offers features for special needs drivers, OnStar vehicle protection, service, parts, accessories, maintenance, XM satellite radio, features for commercial owners, and more. General Motors offers its vehicles and services worldwide.

General Motors share prices have moved between a 52-week high of $41.85 and a 52-week low of $31.70 and are now trading 9% above that low price at $34.60 per share. The 200-day and 50-day moving averages have moved 0.11% lower and 0.33% lower over the past week, respectively.

Following is Ford Motor (NYSE:F) with forward earnings yield of 7.6%.
