    Stock trading below $11 on this Thursday morning. I knew this was going to happen. Traders making their penny profits. Why don't they leave this stock alone. No accumulation. 21M shares traded already and it's only 10 a.m. With Allan sticking around for a couple more years, thought there might be some bounce to the stock. Guess we will have to wait and see.

    The new Fusion is alledgedly been help up over some supplier quality issues, in the early production batches. October deliveries were largely held up for post-build modifications and parts replacements, while the vehicles stacked up in parking lots and on trains and trucks. Vehicles originally scheduled for customer deliveries in early October are now scheduled for mid-November.

    Wonder what effect the new Fusion will have on next month's numbers?

    Fusion deliveries in November and December will probably be in "catch up" mode, as those built and meant for delivery in October finally make their way to dealerships and customers.
