  • Toyota's Green Future Not That Far-Fetched  [View article]
    I don't think those vehicles are welcomed by the EPA or DOT, but have occasionally coveted a more refined and lightly armored Tundra King Cab 4x4 for unforeseen situations. Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi etc. have had great little pickup truck business in Asia, the Middle East and Africa for more than 25 years. (I agree Appalachia should have the same access to said products.)

  • The Curious Case Of Canada  [View article]
    I enjoyed the article and found no arrogant condescension on display; pretty good summary of a "very curious case" with admission of broad and systemic risk.

  • GE cuts jobs, closes foundry at Lufkin unit  [View news story]
    Given GE's past dealings with Iran and Immelt's exposure to Obama and likely Clinton too, I suppose I am grateful they didn't turn Lufkin, its technology, tools and talent base over to the Revolutionary Guard.

    Good analysis. I entered into a small but long EWA position last week and it is already up 7%

    Funny, but I'm seeing a different race, as uninformed voters compete to let their government overlords walk all over them.

  • Why Would Anyone Buy McDonald's Here?  [View article]
    Well stated with reference to your experience on the marketing side but having obviously acquired deep knowledge of franchisee and associated supply chain issues. I had a very small position, but Gibbs?!? Sold.

    Amen. Just like Apple should have hired somebody other than Richard Windsor.

  • Here's Why McDonald's Recent Actions Will Not Jump Start Revenues  [View article]
    The decision to put Robert Gibbs, a glib self-serving professional liar if there ever was one, in a global leadership position makes me question the sanity of Easterbrook and the board.

    If they had hired Gibbs to be the Hamburglar at $15 per hour I might be able to stomach it, but Global CCO?!? Sold my small position.

  • Recent Buy: General Electric  [View article]
    I wish I could divest, but have legacy holdings thanks to my Dad's many productive years at GE. Dad loved Christmas Eve and Christmas...TV, may yours and those of your family and friends be warm and loving, filled with appreciation of blessings, and I extend the same sentiment to all other readers.

  • Recent Buy: General Electric  [View article]
    I'm long GE due to low acquisition price but wouldn't buy any more. I welcome in those of you who like and want in at this price.
