And I'm all for you paying those rates.
My goodness, they are having a good time today fantasizing how big my losses must be. Sadly, it will not address their losses in GM.
My gold miners will probably stay in business. Will GM?
The Chinese are actually buying not only a lot of gold but also gold miners. They have recently bought mines from Barrick and Norton and are trying to take over Phoenix Gold next.
Talk is cheap and those official Chinese govt gold reports are about as trustworthy as US government inflation numbers. Watch what China DOES. They are not only the largest gold producing nation, they don't sell any of it. They are dumping Treasuries and are buyers of gold.
(((Japan must be the only ones buying Gold since the YEN is worth nothing.)))
Jeyedolt, the Chinese have been quietly converting their billions worth of US Treasuries into gold for years.
China has been cutting its dollar holdings and building its gold reserves.
It has been buying up gold mines during these low prices.
While utter morons like you and persie scoff at gold I'm perfectly happy to own miners.
Jeyedolt: "Why isn't no one in GM upper management defending GM stock price?"
Wngr: "I'm not sure I know what the jeye definition of 'defending' is, but if you want someone to try and artificially pump up the stock by making inaccurate statements, that's not going to happen simply because it's against the law."
Webby: Jeyedolt wants Ms. Barra to make public statements to the new media telling people GM stock is only down due to the Wall Street Casino.
Also that the Japanese are currency manipulators!
Also that Japanese cars have very dangerous seat belts.
Mary needs a Yahoo account so Jeyedolt can verify that she is pumping the stock properly.
You're a moron percy. Justum's correct this time. It smells very fishy.
My guess is the reporter just got the story wrong. I know from firsthand experience how bad reporters can mix up quotes and get stories completely wrong.
I have been quoted in the press, in fact, as saying exactly the opposite of what I really said, while another person was quoted as presenting my viewpoint. They got the message right but switched the quotes. Doh! That's why they're a starving journalist driving a Cobalt SS I guess.
(((Now if your constraint is frame supply, why in the world would you establish huge incentives to sell more? Is this simply another auto writer that can't connect the dots, or is the F150 in that much trouble that Ford is trying to deflect attention from a huge gamble that went south?)))
Right! Scarcity should increase prices, so if there is really any demand, and scarcity's the problem, this explanation makes no sense.
You can't have it both ways. Low supply may be an excuse for lower revenues....but you can't blame it for slow sales of the stock you DO have.
I have made no comments about Japanese behavior -- I leave that to Jeye.
You are a moron by the way. One of the worst.
Laugh if it makes you feel better, Persie. Remember I am just an amateur investor. I have never suggested otherwise.
I own my mining stocks as a hedge against a serious currency crisis. If it doesn't happen my other stocks should carry me fine.
You don't need fire insurance on your house most of the time. But you don't wait until the fire starts to buy it.
PS I notice your GM is doing terrible, not just for the past year but the past five years.
((((What the hell do you call QE1, QE2, & QE3? Today's Sesame Street word is :hypocrite)))
Jeyedolt doesn't get it. He thinks he is a patriot but all he is is a thinly disguised racist.
Quantitative easing is just currency manipulation, American style.
Jeyedolt denies reality on a daily basis.
How could you condone the mass genocide of indigenous Americans and the enslavement of an entire race? Why did you promote and encourage these heinous and brutal deeds? Are you just pure evil?
PS: You keep on bringing up 12/04/41 as though the present day Japanese had something to do with it. Most adults from that era are DEAD. If not, they are in their 90's.
PPS: In short, you suck
Please bring up Pearl Harbor more often because it's important we teach our young people to blindly hate the Japanese for things their grandfathers did.
By the same token, I suggest your crimes against Native Americans should be severely punished. You may not have been there when it happened but that's no excuse.
I'm also indicting you for being part of the same country that allowed black slavery. I hope you are saving your GM profits to pay reparations for these evils.
I see these offenses as primarily your fault. Not that you were alive even at the time, but you're the one condemning the innocent here, so turnabout is fair play in your case.
(((("In limited instances, the hybrid system might shut down while the vehicle is being driven, resulting in the loss of power, bringing the vehicle to a stop," Toyota said Wednesday, adding that no accidents or injuries had been reported as a result of the defect.))))
Toyota makes mistakes too. Although they don't seem to have waited until 121 died to fix it.
((((Today $68 hour is Nothing for a Skilled auto worker who knows how to use a Wrench in a Complex Factory, Why even GM Dealers Charge $140 hour for their repairs on these same vehicles. Expect it to get Real Ugly on Wage Demands.))))
Read it and weep, GM Moron Longs.
First you will compete with every other car maker on earth to make sales. Then you will fight the UAW over every penny of gross profit.
If you don't watch it with your criticism of GM you may get booted off of here by another GM pumper complaining about you to Yahoo
(((GM has been on the defensive for years its time they went on offense)))
There one of the most offensive companies ever, jeyedolt.
Good because the current one is fecking ugly especially with the chrome chicken wire grille.
What were they thinking?
