And Facebook is down 46% since their IPO. The NASDAQ composite is down 40% from year 2000. What does that all mean? Next to nothing.
Markets go up and markets go down; why is that a surprise to beeks :?
General Motors is actually up 20% year to date; I bet you wish you had that one in your portfolio ;) Ford on the other hand is down 6% for the year. Government or not, I would rather own GM than Ford; both stock wise and car wise.
BTW…. GM is not failing :)
