Ford (F -4.8%) and General Motors (GM -8.7%) are in the investor doghouse after sales rose less than expected in October. Ford posted a 6.2% bump, below forecasts, although strong SUV sales offer hope for near-term margin improvement. GM sales inched forward; inventory rose to 82 days' supply, up from 67 days in September.

    The car that is "Winning The Future" for Obama's Government Motors, The Volt, must be selling like hotcakes.


    Oh wait, just like the the Administration it is a well intentioned flop.


    GM can't aggressively sell SUV's and Trucks, which coincidentally are the only products that GM can produce at a huge profit, because of their "carbon footprint" (I'm throwing up in my mouth). So because of the fraud of man-made global warming, GM has thrown billions of dollars (taxpayer money once again) into the Volt sinkhole which is just another poignant example of the unintended consequences of following a policy built upon a foundation of lies.

    I think in this economy the investors s Gould have been happy, not ecstatic or depressed. I w I'll continue to buy Ford stock and I own two great Ford cars. My Mustang is a 2006 with almost 60000 miles and not one issue. My 2011 Fusion is great with about 5000 miles and it is everything I wanted and was promised.
