"THE BIG THREE KEEP INCREASING SALES MONTH TO MONTH AS THEY DID IN JULY"
Big deal. This does not necessarily mean good news for TEN. The bigger question: What does this specifically mean to TEN in revenues. This requires knowing the product mix and which platforms TEN supplies. NUMBERS PLEASE
CHINA Q2 GROWS 100% LIKE Q1
Again, big deal, what does this mean to TEN. NUMBERS PLEASE
THE F150 KEEPS INCREASING SALES 15% AS IT DID IN JULY
Okay, this is a TEN platform. But doesn't necessarily mean that increased volume means increased profits. NUMBERS PLEASE
FORD SUPPLIES ALL ITS PRODUCT WITH ELECTONIC SHOCKS AS IT IS DOING ON THE VOLVO - WHICH SALES ARE GOING THROUGH THE ROOF
Big deal. Revenue will see very little lift from a niche product, even if it is increasing. Beyond that, we don't even know whether they make a profit on these or whether they priced them low just to make a statement and get some free editorials. NUMBERS PLEASE
THE EURO STAYS STRONG AND INTEREST RATES STAY LOW
This is about the only thing that will keep TEN in the black. If interest rates go up, TEN is going to be sucking big time. NUMBERS PLEASE
INDIA AND ASIA SALES KEEP INCREASING
Again, big deal, so does the price of bread. NUMBERS PLEASE
TENNECO REDUCES ITS DEBT BY THREE HUNDRED MILLION OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS
Only if it is profitable. If interest rates go up, TEN is going to be hurting, lower sales and higher maintenance of its massive debt load. NUMBERS PLEASE
TENNECO JUST KEEPS INCREASING REVENUE AS IT DID IN Q1 AND Q2
Empty promise. Like Q1 and Q2 are indicating future performance and besides, increased revenue does not necessarily mean increased profits. NUMBERS PLEASE
OR SOME COMPANY REALIZING THAT JUST ONE OF THE ABOVE FACTORS COULD INCREASES TENNECO'S BOTTOM LINE 5 FOLD DECIDES IT IS A GREAT TAKEOVER TARGET.
This one I like the best. What math do you apply to increase profit by 5X? You must have sunk your whole retirement into this pup and figure spreading false speculation of a takeover is the only way to get your beached boat floating again.
