The blog notes that General Motors has been under a lot of pressure recently, to deliver bigger dividends to investors and to increase shareholder value.

Bloomberg cites GM senior executives who assert the new GM is leaner and more nimble, and never mind those pesky recalls. But could those higher quarterly cash dividends be the company’s way of holding on to impatient investor?

Alan Batey, president of GM North America, told Bloomberg about those recalls: “We’ve played a lot of defense in the last year. We’ll never forget what our dealers have done to help us. They’ve been through hell and back. We’re indebted to them, and this year we’ll play offense.”

So that’s why Soros and Buffet are filling up on GM shares: payday is coming.
