"I think GM is one of those stocks people need to remember," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street" Monday. The company is focused on growing its business in Europe and China, Cramer said, areas that are showing signs of increasing strength.

In addition, GM announced on Monday that it had reached a deal to buy back 120 million of its preferred shares - about $3.2 billion - from the United Auto Workers retiree medical benefits trust. The buyout values the shares at $27 per share and the transaction is contingent on a debt offering by GM scheduled for Sept 30th.
