General Motors Co.'s December deliveries beat forecasts while Ford Motor Co. and Nissan Motor Co. posted surprise gains, increasing the likelihood that 2016 marked an unprecedented seventh-straight year of sales growth.GM, the largest U.S. automaker, said deliveries rose 10 percent, beating analysts' estimates for an increase of about 4.4 percent. Ford's light-vehicle sales increased 0.1 percent and Nissan's climbed 9.7 percent. Coming into Wednesday's reports analysts had predicted that GM would stand alone among the six biggest sellers in the U.S. with higher deliveries for December, which had one less selling day than in the year-earlier month. GM was the lone traditional U.S. automaker to see its stock gain last year, by 2.4 percent. Ford's slumped 14 percent and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV slipped 0.2 percent.
