Fusion did alright, didn't it?

Not saying ford is a little car powerhouse. But they are moving in the right direction. And as long as Americans especially in *cough* middle america *cough* with an inflated sense of patriotism, Ford will be there. And the current stock price is fairly low already.

Greenspan could have kept his mouth shut about recession on he same day as China suffered a blip. China is tipped to recover and US will probably follow suit.

Thing is the currency is so cheap they have nowhere to go really. I dont know that much about this stuff but I've been assured by a few more knowledgeable than I that this is just a blip.

Fingers crossed.

It's back up today 100 points. It hasn't made up for yesterday, but at least it's on the way back up.

I think it will be volatile for the next few months... I'm staying put even though I have a little cash set aside to buy something.

At least it rebounded some. I think it'll bounce back up a little bit tomorrow too. I was just about to get out Monday...

From what i recall the auto guy on our corp bond desk saying, Ford is not looking good, but they can still be salvaged. THeir US biz will still be crap, but their overseas ventures are showing some promise. Developing situation.
