The old GM stock now trades as MTLQQ.PK, It is no longer called General Motors it is now the Motors Liquidation Company. It includes all the bad assests of the old company that they are trying to liquidate. The creditors will get first crack at any money from that liquidation and there will likely be nothing left for the shareholders. The stock has little if any value and would not be a good investment. There is no publicly traded stock in the new GM, The share holders in the old GM will not get any of the new GM. Eventually there will be an IPO and anyone can then buy stock in the new GM. For a short time the old GM traded as GMGMQ.PK but people got confused and thought they were buying shares of the new GM instead of the old bad assets. So they had to change the symbol and name to make it less confusing.

Asking strangers, whose qualifications and motives can never be known... is not a great way to make investing decisions. That's more gambling.
PG may be a good stock for you... but it depends on your "asset allocation".
