    It may be the number one question I get from people when they ask about the struggling U.S. automakers: Who would want these guys if they ever go belly up or get sold?

  • Automaker Stocks: Out Of The Woods Yet? Friday, 18 Jul 2008 | 8:37 AM ET

    First, as oil has dropped like a rock, a lot of money has shifted, at least temporarily from commodities to stocks. Money that had to go someplace, and GM shares were a perfect buy. This stock, in my opinion, was way oversold when it dropped under $9 a share.

I can't emphasize how important it is that we go negative on up days, but history can. The 234 point rout yesterday afternoon is a pure example of what I'm talking about. We try not to be too down on down days, and emphasize extreme caution on up days because that's useful.
