  • Ford: Time To Shrink The Amount Of Outstanding Shares [View article]
    pebbea, I'm sorry, but I can't resist responding to your comment. For a few months at the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 F shares traded below $2.00. I know because I bought them then to bring my avg. cost way down. I ultimately made $100K on F when it went up to only $12 or $13. So, what "entry point" are you waiting for? I'm pretty sure that the Ford family is not going to pay you to take shares off their hands. Go for it!

  • Ford's June Sales: To Cheer Or Not To Cheer? [View article]
    Dear Marek, I agree with most of your facts such as our minuscule memory and our desire for big cars at the slightest easing of fuel prices. However, there are large families and other folks that simply must have vehicles with the carrying capacity of the Flex (didn't we used to call such things "station wagons"?) Then there are farmers, contractors, and other businesses that need pickup trucks. Someone must provide such vehicles and Ford happens to do that quite well, so why criticize them for it? When was the last time you saw a mini garbage truck or a mini Abrams tank? It's not like Ford isn't pushing forward with much more fuel efficient cars at all; they're simply filling their market's demand which IMO is merely good business sense.
