Shares in French auto company Peugeot plummeted on Friday after auto giant GM said it was selling its stake amid talk of a huge capital shake-up that could bring in the French state. In early trading, shares in PSA Peugeot Citroen sank 9.78 percent to 9.59 euros after already plunging 7.6 percent on Thursday. That dive came after loss-making Peugeot confirmed it is in talks with China's state-owned Dongfeng about a shareholder tie-up. Later Detroit-based GM announced it was dropping its 7-percent stake in the loss-making French carmaker.
