  • Why I Will Frequently Trade But Never Invest In Ford And GM  [View article]
    As the author points out, autonomous cars are inevitable but fallible. Until perfection arrives there will be mass transportation and taxis. I predict a huge bloom in the number of self-employed taxi drivers using open-source iphone software for convenience in communication and payment. The current Uber system works, but is too expensive. Uploaded photos of every passenger should help to deter crime.

  • Tesla: Porsche Validates The Model S  [View article]
    The Model S proves where the sweet spot is in making an all electric car. And that is a full size aluminum body hosting a large heavy battery, and however many electric motivators as you can fit in. It will take additional technological innovations to downsize that package into something that is affordable for its capabilities, the multiple runs around town for the busy soccer mom.

  • Why Nvidia's Opportunity In Autos Is Heavily Underrated  [View article]
    How likely is it that most or all of the different car makers will pick NVidia as their supplier? The auto market seems to be much smaller than, say, the home computer market, where a user can upgrade his processor whenever he feels like plugging in a new card.

  • Why Did Tesla Order 2,500 Danish License Plates?  [View article]
    "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" definition. A line from the play Hamlet, by William Shakespeare. An officer of the palace guard says this after the ghost of the dead king appears, walking over the palace walls. -Google

    Now with all of these big announcements from BA, AMZN, MSFT, etc. the market will take off and the Fed will spend years trying to keep the inflation genie in the bottle.

  • Strike threatened at Ford F-150 plant  [View news story]
    So, after the stockholders take all the financial risk, and the talented designers come up with the ideas, the engineers develop the practical solutions, and the technicians do the testing, the faithful assemblers stick their collective foot in the door and extort the most they can from the proven end product.

  • Lockheed files protest against Army truck award to Oshkosh  [View news story]
    How well did the vehicle perform? Were three way trials done? The Pentagon has liked to spread the money around in the past. What made Lockheed think they could build a significantly better vehicle than the others?

  • Boeing: Bright Future On Sale  [View article]
    You bring up a good point about the stock repurchasing plans, how well they responded to the sudden dip in prices. A good question for the analysts to ask all companies at the coming conferences.

  • Emerge Energy Services - Buy The Drop For Long-Term Gains  [View article]
    It appears to me that the frak sand suppliers are victims of their own success. The increased production from fracked wells is holding down oil prices. This is good news in the long run, but meanwhile sand producers have to deal with increasing competition, reducing prices to hold on to market share, and to pay off their debt.

  • Ford's Dividend Yield Is Approaching 4.00% Again  [View article]
    I didn't read it all, but I wish Ford vehicles weren't involved in so many recalls. Should we expect a sales increase from lower gasoline prices?
