"Be real, paying 21 times earnings for what?"
Since you are so savvy an investor, you should put your money where your mouth is and short it all the way to $20. Then, take your profits and buy GM stock for the ride back up.
Let us know how that works out for you. We're REALLY curious of how well you'll do.
Thanks and have a nice Christmas.
"wow 5 days compaired to 49 months."
You are VERY forgetful there moron. You seem to forget the 40% gain in 2012. And also in 40% gain in 2013. You have to work the ebbs and flows moron. Prices go down. Prices go up. Figure it out moron or you'll never be any sort of investor...
"Wait until the strike next year that will bankrupt GM Still underwater and you count days as years."
Strike? Ain't gonna happen -you're just puffing out your girly chest.
Say, that's a STUPID ID there moron...
You really have NOTHING better to do? You must live in Loserville.
"Americans laughed at toyoDUH and honnDUH when they first arrived in the US, then came the Kia and Hyundai, they too looked like piece of junk cars, but now they look like premium cars with lower price."
Yes we did laugh and are still laughing at some of their entries. But, this is a very complicated business and it takes a very long time to become REALLY good at designing and actually manufacturing vehicles for the developed markets like the US. Please take a look at Mitsubishi and tell us how they are doing here in the US...
"Remember this, never underestimate your competitors."
On this we can agree and the OEM that has been the MOST successful breaking into the US market like an 800lb gorilla is hyundai/kia IMO. We laughed at their early attempts BUT they got dang good really quickly (relatively speaking). Also, don't think that price is everything when it comes to automotive products...
"What an Idiot"
Just your ID suggests that you are indeed an IDIOT.
"Such a Moron"
P.S. Got a better ID that is maybe a bit original? These multiple IDs that you create are laughable at best.
You're just getting all worked up because GM is up nearly 8% over the past 4 trading days.
I agree too that to that GM will likely raise the dividend. If they can't reward shareholders with price increase, they'll do it with dividends...
"You have multiple aliases"
I do NOT have multiple IDs/aliases here or on ANY other message board. Sorry loser.
"and you are the basher-hater on the TM message board so you are a loser"
I don't like toyoDUH at all - what's it to you LOSER?
"Are you mentally ill?"
I'm quite certain that I'm not. Not so sure about you, however, as YOU have MULTIPLE stupid IDs that serve no purpose other than to harass.
Have a nice CHRISTmas anyways.
"You really are sick aren't you?"
Oh yes - the IMPOSTER clown clone is sick as can be.
"GM loaded up with to many GMI Engineers they needed a better mix from other Engineering schools."
I don't think many here would agree with you...
"The main force behind the Union is Senority. There is nothing wrong with everyone waiting their turn. Nothing wrong with higher senority having the choice of better production job. It took years before I could hold the shift I wanted."
I think that many see senority as a problem or crutch. Why should a higher senority employee get a CHOICE of jobs when they might not be as qualified or skilled? I imagine that any production supervisor would like to PICK which employees get which jobs (within some boundaries) to better guarantee overall output and quality of that particular group.
Further, you're really talking about two completely different things in your post - the TYPE of job and also the SHIFT preference. I can indeed see senority playing a role on SHIFT preference but I don't agree on JOB preference.
Care to defend your position further?
"Anyway, one of their chief complaints in working with GM as suppliers was how frustrating it was dealing with the young engineers and designers at GM that had no practical manufacturing experience. Kind of tough to effectively design a part when you have absolutely no concept of how it will be made."
This is really twofold for many industries, and I see it especially so for the auto OEMs. Not only do "young" engineers not have knowledge of how things are made (the individual parts) but also how all the parts come together to make a vehicle (in the assembly plant). Heck, I know a LOT of product engineers that really don't get out to where the rubber hits the road (or the final line at the assembly plant).
This is a HUGE problem if OEMs are to have "engineering excellence"...
"I went to a coop engineering school (GMI) and we were assigned actual production responsibilities for our work sections for the first year or so. I thought that approach paid huge benefits in years to come."
I can't think of a better educational/OJT opportunity than Kettering (or GMI as many know it). I have my kid there right now who is loving the work experience. Dang expensive but when done, the engineering world can be your oyster! It's hard work while at school, for sure, but the students usually relish the work sessions as well because they do indeed get reasonable pay. The best part is the work rotations within the company they coop for and I have encouraged the heck out of various assignments. Don't "get stuck" in one group even though you get comfortable with that group. The rotations are indeed the beauty of how the students get a bigger picture of a company and how complicated in can be, for example, in the auto industry, especially for an OEM.
If you don't like those posts, then just report the MORON imposter often.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
and you think it will be successful? How did it work out for toyoDUH and that smashing hit from honDUH? What about Nissan's attempt? Is that thing still in production???
Yeah - it's going to be quite a challenge for hyundai/kia...
