    VW won't buy pcar

    Volkswagen has 25 billion euro in cash and equivalents and earned 3.35 billion euro pre-tax profit in the first quarter alone. They could buy PCAR if they wanted to. The access to the U.S. market (where VW is non-existent in trucks) would be a jewel in the crown and the Mexican and Aussie markets, etc. would be a big bonus. Their truck operations in Europe are well-run. They might need to sell some European operations for anti-trust as they could control too large a share if they added DAF. The European market is led by Scania/MAN at 27%, then Daimler at 24%, Volvo/Renault 20% then DAF 16% and IVECO 8.5%. In the U.S., Daimler has been over 44 percent which is less than a combined DAF/Scania/MAN, but the EU has a tight vision of antitrust. One benefit to VW would be stopping PCAR in Brazil, one of VWs most profitable markets for trucks. It does make some sense - not a completely unrealistic scenario.

    6 years a free man

    Mose is a prisoner of his animus toward Mark Piggott. He doesn't care that Piggott is now retired. Mose is unable to sleep at night so long as Mark Piggott walks on this planet, because Mose is so full of bile that his eyes are yellow. It is tragic that Mose cannot enjoy his retirement and be at peace with the universe. He spews his hatred on this board in a futile attempt to infect us with his disease. He believes that if others will only share his hatred he won't be such a pathetic, lonely soul as his mind withers and his body ossifies. The neighbors take detours to avoid his gaze lest he launch into a rant about the terrible Pig that haunts his every waking minute and torments him in his dreams .... Meanwhile, Mark Piggott blissfully enjoys his retirement, collecting *substantially* more than $40+K/year, completely unaware of Mose and his self-inflicted misery ....

    Shhh, I'm collecting lunch money from a few of my buddies and we're planning to buy the whole company ... or maybe a few cases of wine. We can't decide which. Maybe both.

    LOL. This company's market cap wouldn't even cover the cost of paying for the photocopies needed to effect a merger.

    WY Options and the WRECO split

    An option is an OPTION to buy a stock. It carries no rights. If you exercise the option, you would own the stock and have rights. In this case, I do not expect the spin-off of WRE to affect the value of WY shares enough to call for an adjustment in options prices. http://www.optionseducation.org/tools/faq/splits_mergers_spinoffs_bankruptcies.html
