and thats all they can do at the moment. so those calling for buy backs etc... may have a while to wait. im personally am looking to get about a 20% share increases on the yr and the current divy. that not a bad outcome!
gm has more money due to the bankruptcy and bail out. ford is saddled with all the old obligations and therefor it would be more difficult if not irresponsible to be to aggressive at this point. this legacy debt / obligation is also reflected in the share price. imho
