The Iron Lady was a great leader and great human being. Reagan and Thatcher were an unlikely team that moved our world forward and were despised by the left, to me the left validated the effectiveness of that duo.
Mike I agree which makes me think he is leaving, I will have to make a decision with this stock soon, very disappointed in Alan's handling of this issue, great CEO but he is smitten by the attention of the suitor Mr. Softie, and with this he's hurting the share price by holding it hostage.
This is by far the best of the American automotive stocks and it is going nowhere or in reverse. Great job numbers, market up, and this is down. Alan needs to speak definitively on the subject, you are either going or your staying, not I'm proud to be employed by Ford, he needs to speak out now. This stock will move if he puts an end to the microsoft speculation, by not saying it makes me think he is entertaining the idea and will leave.
This stock makes no sense, it goes up when it should go down and goes down when it should go up. We need a catalyst to get this moving upward. At least it seems to be consolidating and is staying in a range now. The shorts seem to be hanging around though not as much anymore.
Another gift from Santa Claus Obama, get folks more and more addicted to government aid and freebies, gets you votes. The problem it hurts our country and the psyche of Americans.
It's been following a very simple pattern of first hour sell off, price recovers to positive number, then sells off again but recovers most of the loss for a small loss. This has been going on for about a week or so.
It moved a little last week and this week, I'm hoping for an end of the year rally to 20. I agree this stock has been dead in the water for months.

Hard to say, if Mullaly leaves for Mr. Softie the stock may take a hit. It's kind of range bound now like you said, is the consumer getting tapped out, many retailers are struggling because of stagnant wages and not much job creation. Right now we have a stagnant economy though many on Wall Street will tell you it's growing fast, from the street level it's stagnant. The saving grace is the dividend if you want to wait.
