If you woke up today and decided to buy a 707-hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat or Dodge Charger Hellcat, your options would be limited and expensive. There’s basically none available at Chrysler’s original $58,295 sticker price; if you’re willing to pay the dealer markup, you might find one starting around $70,000, with used ones going for a little (but not much) less. Earlier this year, a bone-stock 2015 Challenger Hellcat sold at auction for $110,000; two more are set for a collector auction next month in Reno.
Today, Dodge revealed several moves aimed at satisfying Hellcat demand, including more than doubling production for 2016. But as part of that process, some 900 customers who thought they were getting a Hellcat this year will have to wait a little longer — and miss out on that first-model-year pride.
Dodge executives said today the company had scheduled the last runs of 2015 models at the Canadian plant that builds the two models. It will re-open the order books for dealers in August and again in February, with new rules that specify exactly how many Hellcats a dealer can order in 2016. Those dealers that did the best job of moving Hellcats will get more; those who bought a few and slapped $20,000 markups on the sticker hoping for a sale will get penalized.
By doubling production to roughly 8,000 Hellcats, Dodge aims to knock down some of those vigs that individual dealers had demanded. Dodge spokesman Dan Reid said the factory will cancel some 900 orders that had been sold but not built for 2015, offering those customers vouchers good for 2015 pricing on 2016 models, which will get an unspecified price hike. The 2016s will hit dealers late this year.
From what’s been said so far, the changes should make 2016 Hellcats a little easier to find — but by canceling the 2015 orders it had, and building something less than 4,000 copies, those first-year models may find a permanent seat at collector auctions soo
Sentiment: Strong Buy

Sebastian Vettel in a Ferrari claimed the win and 25 points, staying out in front for most of the race as carnage unfolded behind him. Ricciardo’s Red Bull teammate Dany Kvyat was a major beneficiary of the chaos, claiming second and his first podium finish.
Lewis Hamilton had a shocking race and was well back. in sixth. he apologised to the team for the “whole race”. “I had a very bad day at the office,” he said.
Ricciardo made a passing move to go into second with four laps to go but clashed with Nico Rosberg. The Mercedes driver suffered a puncture and Ricciardo’s front section of his Red Bull exploded off the car. He was able to return to finish third but his brazen passing move didn’t pay off as he would have hoped.
Don't feel bad...Shorts will always write stupid posting thinking that their BS will affect the true investors. I buy a stock after lots of reading and much of DD. Shorts will sell a stock because a chain letter says to short. The truth, is that the ones saying to short a stock already did it much earlier at a higher price.
@ the moment I know that YAHOO is saving a huge amount of cash from the share buyback. When you'll see the float below 864.87million shares in the next Q report, then you know there's much more value for the existing shareholders in the long term.
Analysts at Mizuho Securities initiated coverage on Yahoo! Inc.
YHOO with a Buy rating. The target price for Yahoo! is set to $51. Yahoo! shares closed at $41.06 yesterday
I was wondering what will happen if at one point HERBALIFE management decide to make make an offer to turn the company private lets say offering the 52 week high of $70.00 per share...I'm sure with the short trying to cover this stock will hit at least $100.00 ...any though?
You will lose big! The new SPINCO will go to existing YAHOO shareholders without a pre-tax charge to YAHOO. The tax burden will fall on the shareholders only when the new spinco shares eventually will be sold on the open market.
How many small companies does yahoo need? This is non stop! :-/
"It turns out that Yahoo acquired an unnamed company for $23 million during the first three months of 2015, according to its 10Q filing with the SEC on Thursday."
YAHOO it and read it
