  • Not So Fast, GM Isn't Off The Hook Yet [View article]
    It doesn't sound like Toyota was any better in recalls.

    You can see why GM didn't recall the cars after reading about some of the accidents: alcohol, drugs, not wearing seat belts, history of epilepsy, etc. I've read also that not all cars in accidents had the key in the accessory position.

    I agree with most of your post, but once they start compensating people for accidents years ago, then when will that end? And will Toyota and Ford have to compensate people as well?

    People are quite aware that the news is more about hype than facts and getting you to watch their ads on tv waiting for "news" that isn't anything close to being new. 40,000 people die in the USA due to auto accidents and everyone thinks its someone else's fault. If they can get money from GM, they will try to do it. And that goes for all the other companies as well. I think more people sued over the Firestone/Ford accidents and now both companies seem to be doing just fine.
    From Wikipedia: " it has been estimated that over 250 deaths and more than 3,000 serious injuries resulted from these failures, with not all occurring on Ford Motor Company vehicles." It is indeed sad that 13 people died in a GM car with a faulty part, but with over 40,000 accidents per year, NHTSA does not have the people to investigate every one of them nor is any automaker going to take responsibility to pay for the accidents. That is why you have insurance.

    Can the new GM company be criminally liable for the former bankrupt GM's operations? Even if someone knew a part was faulty or changed by Delphi, I question if the new GM can be held criminally liable years later. I think this would set a difficult precedent going forward in our legal system. And according to news, Delphi made the change and it was only signed off by a GM employee. So shouldn't Delphi be investigated?

  • HTA Delivers On Its Dedicated Management Model [View article]
    I still have my investment in HTA. I think the healthcare commercial property values in the smaller cities will continue to rise.

    They put LeBeau in a GM car, but unfortunately he survived.

    Doesn't look like he knows how to steer straight or put on the brake.

  • Cohen & Steers: The King Of REITs Poised To Provide Investors 42% Annualized Returns [View article]
    You get re-invested dividends and capital gains, so the price of the shares has little to do with it. Go to Morningstar, your broker's site, or their website, and look up the performance.
    All assets went down in the crash. That's why you need several years of cash so you don't sell anything at the bottom. If we did not have the recession, everyone would be much wealthier, including government. That's why we need to understand how to prevent that from ever happening again.

  • Higher Semiconductor And Display Spending Drives Applied Materials' Growth In Q2 [View article]
    I think you need to review your valuation for the stock because you have had $17 on there for a long time. Meanwhile the stock is up 29% for the year. According to yahoo, revenue growth for this next quarter is supposed to be over 17% and earnings up 50%.
    The stock is very likely to outperform the S&P for another year. So what is that worth?

  • GM presser on tap amid reports of fine and consent decree [View news story]
    User,
    You forget that hedge funds were long when Phil liked GM, and now they are short while he comes on there bad-mouthing GM. He is definitely a paid hack. And so are most of them. When they tell you to buy something, hedge funds are selling to you.

    Most definitely he has been exagerating with fear in his voice selling his Sunday night special. I have been listening to him all week. He is on there about every hour trying to drum up viewers.
    And he knew exactly the maximum fine for today but he has tried to make it sound so dramatic as though it would drive them into default, even while it is peanuts.
    I am so sick of CNBC. They have gotten the market so out of whack that no one knows what any stock is worth.

    Does someone have an old GM car to put Phil LeBeau in?

    So you think deep sea drilling is safer than the car business? I don't. There is no dividend that would pay me enough to own that.
