  • Ford, GM on the Chopping Block?  [View article]
    I have always wondered what would be best for the US economy:
    Buying a Ford made outside the US
    Buying a Toyota made in the US

    How much lower will demand be once less cars (and less gasoline cars) are manufactured?

  • Is Anything Worth Owning in the Auto Industry?  [View article]
    Unless you think GM/F will go belly up, at some point there will be a buy point for the long term investor. The question is, what is that point?
    For now, GM still pays a dividend with an 8.77% yield based on current prices. Even F still pays on its bonds (KVU - issued by CorTS Trust II for Ford Notes).
    While KVU's face value ($25) and yields 8%. The current price of $14.07 would give you a yield of 14.21% ($1 per share paid semi-annually).
    It's a low volume bond, but no one thinks that F will go away, so is it a long term growth and income play?
