General Motors (GM -0.6%) slides below $19 for the first time since emerging from bankruptcy in Nov. 2010, after Toyota (TM -0.2%) grabbed the first-half global sales lead. GM announced H1 sales of 4.67M vehicles, which fell ~300K short of TM's number. For Toyota, the rebound is impressive, but "what's even more important than the numbers is the profitability."
