  • Alan Mulally proves once again with his decision NOT to go to Microsoft that he is one very smart man.

  • Neither was Steve Ballmer as far as technical background. Mulally is one of the best CEO around, he has experience with both commercial airplanes and car manufacturing not product that constantly need to be patched. Perhaps he is lacking that "technical" where products need to be constantly services like Microsoft products.

  • Yes. And we've seen how well Ballmer has done over the last decade. He has consistently missed one technological trend after another and then paid steeply in futile attempts to catch up. Man, it was time for him to go. Actually, it was time for Ballmer to go in 2004.

  • Stop with this Mulally crap , F is well positioned with both its current product line and 2014 introductions to move into the 20's . No big difference if Mulally leaves now or in Dec. F is undervalued plain and simple

  • The board is meeting to approve a dividend increase. So look for that to be announced after the close on Wednesday or Thursday before the market opens. This is what has happened the last 2 years.
