    Overall sales have done well. While VW would like to prosper in the US market, it has not yet done so and won't for a few more years at this pace. Worldwide sales, especially Europe, continue to be excellent, basically ignoring the emissions fiasco. Buy and hold. I agree with the analyst that says this is likely to double within three years.

  • It would appear the bottom is in and that cooler heads are finally prevailing. Lots of blue sky above. GLTA.

    Is this a "This too shall pass" event?

    Given the amount it has dropped thus far and the historials of GM and Toyota, we HAVE to be close to bottom. Most analysts believe that VW has already set aside more than enough to cover the cost of their stupidity. Let's face it - nobody was killed! Face it! Emissions violations, of which there have been many, do not stay in the minds of consumers very long. Consumers want performance and engineering, both which the Germans clearly satisfy. A Ford Escord is just not the same. Sorry.
    There was an article in Forbes just today, I believe, which I thought explained the situation clearly. Panic and overselling, today exaggerated by computerized selling. Welcome to Casino Wall Street. Fundamentals today mean little. But VW has dropped so far already! What are we looking at? 45%? For God's sake. That is ridiculous. Nobody was killed! No flaming oil wells. No oily beaches. No gasping seals or oil laden ducks. No inoperative brakes (Toyota). No firey crashes! Emissions, not meaning to minimize what happened but let's keep things in perspective! A couple of years ago, this would not have been actionable! But here we are.
    I bought VW stock recently, though am losing a few Passats at this point! But I am a long-term investor. I live in Europe. VWs have been and will continue to be popular. The emissions issue appears only in the financial press here.
    The company has a software patch. Compensation will be paid to ownters and the pound of flesh will be paid to the US governement. That said, Google, Microsoft, and Intel and other large American firms had better watch their step in Europe in the future. This is war by another name.

    PS. You can kiss the Transatlantic Trade Agreement goodbye.

    CFO leaving

    Change and instability always make investors nervous. Truth be told, analysts really don't really see an issue here as the incoming CFO has ample experience and has been with the company for 18 or so years.

    This Rise On No News????

    Momentum only at this point, I suppose. While buyout rumors (or other small pharmas being bought out) may take the price up temporarily, it is way too early to happen to GERN. While trial results have been exceptional, there is a long way to go yet before FDA approval. This stock is temporarily moving on rumor and recent increases in target price. Once the dust settles, price would logically begin to deteriorate until the next piece of news appears. This isn't bad, per se, but this is how these small caps pharmas move - news, news news. IMHO, naturally.
    I am planning to hold long term. I made nice money in Kerx, Hemispherex (years ago), and Acadia. I hope to do the same here. It certainly looks positive. Buy and hold. Don't be worried by the volatility. It is what these stocks do.

    Not that I am a great fan of banks, but Obama has been a relentless enemy of US banking. Much of BAC's suffering has been due to obligations undertaken at the behest of the US Government, purchases that it never would have taken had it not been for extreme political pressure. That doesn't account for everything but BAC has certainly paid a high price for the failings of/mandates of the Federal Government.
