On crooking the books on the Hertz sale which has tons of forward provisions in it . You also have other non re-occurring items on the sheets . Forcast for next year is going to be withdrawn in todays meeting . Too early to buy . I repeat sell into the hype . Only you can figure where the top is . This is sell on the news at the last minute . Going into recession Ford Motor Credit earnings will start coming down going forward too . The only saviour is if they can come up with very fuel effiecint cheap vehicles to re equip Americans getting soaked by the oil companies who have them by the short hairs . Believe me this is the plan . Sorry the poor get poorer .
