  • Fisker Automotive, the struggling government-backed hybrid sports car maker, terminates 75% of its staff in what sources said was a last-ditch effort to conserve cash and stave off a potential bankruptcy filing. The company, which raised $1.2B from investors and tapped nearly $200M in government loans, has only around $30M in cash remaining. About 160 workers were fired at a Friday morning meeting at its Anaheim, Calif., headquarters, and were told that the company couldn't afford to give them severance payments. [View news story]

  • Boeing (BA +1.4%) reports the completion of a "straightforward and uneventful" 787 certification demonstration flight today today with a Boeing-owned production airplane built for LOT Polish Airlines. Today's flight marks the final certification test for the new battery system, and completes the required FAA testing. BA now plans to gather and analyze the data and submit the required materials to the agency for further dialog. [View news story]
    If the flight was only 2-3 hours this is no big deal. A longer flight 6-11 hours is a different ballgame. If they loose ETOP certification it will be a major problem since most airlines were looking to use this airplane to do long haul flights that are cheaper for the airline. The Foreign Companies wanted the 787 for this purpose. Trips across the poles to shorten routes was expected to help bring more passengers to major cities around Europe-The Middle East, Asia-N. America. and all the Americas with flights to Africa or S. America to New Zealand or Australia. ANA Airlines was going to fly Tokyo to Boston but if ETOP is cancelled this route is cancelled for now. The 787 will have to stay with in a 2 hour corridor from an airport. That will cut most long haul over water flights leading to cancellations of present orders and leading to other aircraft companies to catch up and take market share over the next few years.

  • Time To Prepare For The Next Euro Crisis And A Market Correction [View article]
    Yes or sooner you can always find a new price point that makes sense down the road. Also there will be new opportunities to buy smaller companies that are moving up the food chain.

    W 123 Trouble pure and simple. Governments will go after the Tax cheaters & the shadow economy. Which will cause rioting eventually creating more strain on company profits. Insurance companies will be hammered + more solar trouble is expected causing electrical device & equipment problems. Also more major weather problems will be very bad. Except for companies who either repair damage, or make replacement parts, and retail. Sea level is going up and earthquakes and volcanoes are getting active so it would be a great time to do your homework and make changes if you are in a bad area to live from here on out. Some Eskimo villages are having to move and are. 5ft. minimum to 40-60ft. likely rise in sea level which will cause more earthquakes and eruptions over this time period. Serious work will be need to reduce this kind of global impact. That work is starting but is not up to the need speed it will take to keep this from being another Noah's Ark type of event that could last for centuries. Best wishes

  • The problems continue to pile up for Boeing's (BA -3.2%) Dreamliner, as another 787 operated by Japan Airlines returns to Boston's Logan airport terminal prior to takeoff due to a fuel leak. The cause of the leak is not yet known, and the aircraft's 178 passengers, - who were bound for Tokyo - still remain on board. [View news story]
    V the 787 handles 210-290 depending on model C series is a 737 class aircraft come on Bombardier should be pushing for a mid size jet to steal business from both Boeing and Airbus. I like more competition and more people room in this industry.

  • Tesla Has All The Parts To Power Higher [View article]
    Bery they are being compared to European sedans like BMW's and most Mercedes Benz. I think they are to small but safety will show us who is right for the long run. The driver can make a huge difference by paying attention. So many accidents are do to drivers not driving safely there like drunks a poorly guided missile . Best Wishes

  • Wal-Mart (WMT) reportedly plans to deny health insurance to new employees who work fewer than 30 hours/week. The policy change will use an Obamacare loophole to shift the costs of health insurance to the government. [View news story]

    I T unfortunately there maybe bums trying to life of everyone else. It is sad to say, they will not make the honest effort to train for a new job and make it happen. They keep the paperwork in motion so they stay eligible for assistance its totally disgusting and I hope they get caught one day. We have plenty of public works projects that should be done. Best Wishes and good luck to those that are in need!

    RJ Dod has had a Hummer hybrid in testing for about 15 or more years. The Marines are getting a Diesel hybrid scout car that is transportable by the Osprey internally both could be in service in large #s by now yet they are not sounds like big oil trying to interfere. Trains that use Diesel are hybrids so size does not matter.

    Sorry Blueice Global Warming is for real but wish we had more honest and objective data for the last 30 years. We the people could have made better choices in how we shop for products, such as the materials and how much were being used. Wal mart did a study and found 1 product was using over a 1000+ gallons of oil do to the amount of packaging. Both in production and transporting the product to the store. They told the company to reduce the amount of packaging to save $. Being able to make better choices can save you $ in the long run, Sea Level may rise 45-60+ feet into next century. Are you prepared for all the weather that will get much worse? Sandy was a small fore shadowing of what is to come. Best wishes

    M no chance without a disaster. Teddy is being very kind There are 3 models that tesla may decide to make and it will be game over to any other company that is not up to par. They are large car or mini van for the taxi market and Soccer Moms and Dads. mid size pick up like the Dakota or a little bigger version. Lastly Full size workhorse pick up truck. All these groups are vulnerable to having a better quality vehicle sell out quick like some Michael Jackson concerts when he was doing well. They sold out good venues in less then 2 hours. This is the kind of reaction we can see in the future.

  • It's a kitchen sink of initiatives agreed to by the Troika to help reduce Greece's debt load. Among them are buybacks of the country's debt, a return of profits booked by the ECB from its SMP purchases, a reduction in bailout program interest rates, and the outright deferral of some interest payments. Worried about frontrunning? Lagarde: "The less we talk about the debt buyback, the better we are with regard to pricing." [View news story]
    D U they will try it is like our election the EU was told to keep it quiet as much as possible so Obama could be reelected. S this is the same play till the German and the Italian election as well I expect drama before and after. The voters can't be that stupid and short sided? Or at least I hope not. If this scenario happens will the Fed end up helping out again? I hope not we could end up going faster to an Evil World Govt whether it is obvious or not. The Big Bankers seem like they want to very badly, so they can stay in power. Hoping I am wrong on this one.
