I have absolutely no respect for Financial analysts. I put them on par with other charlatans as Nostradamus. Saying that someone "knew about the financial collapse" is like *GOSH* predicting that a soap bubble will burst. Duh. Really?!? Imagine that!1!!
In the automotive world, product is king. Period.
Ford is surprisingly bringing out some (hopefully) very good products over the next couple of years. I personally am looking for a good opportunity to dump some more money into Ford stock.
