UPDATE: GM shares down premarket as revenue miss weighs against profit beat and chip shortage takes its tollGeneral Motors shares reversed early gains to trade down 1.6% in premarket trade Wednesday, after the company blew past profit estimates for the third quarter and offered above-consensus guidance for the full year, but suffered a revenue miss. GM said it had net income of $2.420 billion, or $1.62 a share, in the quarter, down from $4.045 billion, or $2.78 a share, in the year-earlier period.

As a result, the company is on track to deliver full-year 2021 EBIT-adjusted earnings approaching the high end of its guidance range," GM said in a statement. The auto maker is now expecting full-year EPS to range from $5.52 to $6.52. It expects adjusted EPS to range from $5.70 to $6.70, compared with a FactSet consensus of $6.41. Shares have gained 38% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 22%.
