    Sales figures for new vehicles at the big three U.S. automakers (I, II, III) topped year-ago levels and were near their best levels since before the financial crisis, but General Motors (GM -4.6%) lagged estimates, posting 12% sales growth in March vs. 21% predicted.

    The UAW-Chrysler (FIATY.PK) deal includes an initial signing bonus of $1,750 per worker, matched again if the carmaker meets profit targets. The pay scale for entry-level workers lines up with rates previously negotiated by Ford (F +3.4%) and General Motors (GM +3.8%), while no cap exists for entry-level hires until 2015. Shares of parent Fiat are up 9.7%.

    It's not just Italian banks - and their massive sovereign debt exposure - taking the hits. Fiat (FIATY.PK), already down 29% over the last month, is off another 8% in Milan today.
