  • Don't Buy Volkswagen Stock, Yet; Where There Is Smoke, There Will Be Fire  [View article]
    EU cars are 33 per cent safer in front-side collisions, an accident that often results in serious injury, than US cars.

    That is why it is still very accurate for Audi to say:
    "This is Truth in Engineering"

  • Volkswagen's Scandal Is Bad But May Present Buying Opportunity  [View article]
    What VW did, was not ok, but the same could be said about the absurd emission standards US is opposing on diesel engines.

    Anyway, only the US has fines so unreasonably high, that they even exceed the purchase price of the cars themselves.
    The engines of VW which have the "cheating" software installed are the same everywhere. That's why VW stated the amount of 11M. This does not mean that this software was applied or needed in other regions to comply to the local emission standards.

  • Volkswagen -35% in two-day drubbing after cheating scandal  [View news story]
    I don't agree. How can a private shareholder being held responsible for actions he can not influence or for information he did not have.
    This makes no sense.

    EPA is on this case since they allowed VW diesel engines.
    EPA is communicating their concerns for more than a year with VW.
    EPA should also have shared their concerns about VW diesel engines not meeting the strict regulations to the public.
    Instead EPA waiting for more than 6 years in order to confront shareholders with a massive fine.

    VW was not right making their cars comply to the emission demands of EPA.
    But EPA is now simply stealing from shareholders who possible couldn't not have know about this issue.

    you can make these stories about every companie in the world.
    How about the stock manipulation done by hypertrading machines of Goldmansachs?
    How about the US banks who caused the financial crisis?
    How about the weapon industry responsible for producing products which causes so many deaths in and outside of the US.
    How about the shale gas industry who are polluting the soil by wrecking?

    You can make a horror scenario about any company.
    Fact is VW makes excellent, well desgined and prestigious cars.
    VW does not only make profit with the VW brand but also more than healthy profits on all of its other brands.
    The affected 11 million diesel cars are all save and legal to drive.
    The majority of VW sales are outside the US market which oppose absurd strict laws for diesel engines (because their are hardly any domestic producers of diesel engines).

    This sell off is total panic and craziness.
    The fine is absurd.
    Nowhere in the world fines will be so absurd that they are being calculated per car or that the fines are higher than the sellingprice of a car.
    In China there are no diesel cars sold by VW.

    Why are shareholders being punished so absurdly hard by the US authorities?
    Is this reasonable?
    Did shareholders do something wrong?

  • Volkswagen reported to be in DOJ crosshairs  [View news story]
    I wonder if US and European authorities also investigate this:

    On Friday 18th of September, just a few hours before the EPA accusations a few investment banks posted recommendations to buy Volkswagen shares.

    Sanford C. Bernstein, set a €200 price target on Volkswagen AG

    Baader Bank, set a €260 price target on Volkswagen AG

    Commerzbank AG, set a €278.00 price objective on Volkswagen AG

    Sounds like some investment banks knew about the EPA accusations before they were actually announced.
    Sounds like some investment banks were trying to mislead private investors.

  • Volkswagen orders probe into EPA emissions violations  [View news story]
    The punishment is not fair.
    Shareholders who couldn't possible have known of any EPA violations, are now being punished.

    If laws were violated, the punishment should only affect the ones responsible for violating those laws.

  • BMW In The U.S.: Not As Rosy As It Seems  [View article]
    So, after the stock has dropped an amazing 30% from 16 March till the 8th of July the author recommends to short the stock. Typical Wallstreet tactics. Manipulating retail investors by recommending to short stocks at their lowest levels.

    Today this profitable company is trading below 11 times profit. On top of that BMW pays great dividends.

  • EU to widen probe against U.S. tech companies  [View news story]
    Is it reasonable?

    When companies like Google, Facebook, GoldmanSachs, Samsung or Apple are so powerful and that dominant, there is no possibility for others to start even thinking about competing with those behemoths before being destroyed, bought, employees being lured away, your ideas are being stolen. Oh... you don't like what those giants are doing to you. Well, good luck surviving their armies of the best lawyers in court.

    As long as it's not an additional way of steeling money from companies to fill government budget deficits or the greedy pockets of politicians, I think Europe has a point.
    However, the US is punishing many European banks with multi billion fines because of libor fraud. In that case I don't understand why Europe isn't punishing Goldman Sachs since they are the main architects of the 2008 financial crisis and the trouble Greece is in now.
