It's hard to figure out which stock to dump first if that rumor bears fruit.

Wow I thought it was a typo....

Chinese junk has flooded the motorcycle industry with thier crap and soon cars I am sure but they will not be well received if they are not dependable.

My company has a plant in Shouzou China and "it's good enough" is thier favorite saying. They build lots of things but build nothing well at all. This will eventually self correct. I may be 55 by then and unemployed but it will.

I have a relative that had his plant change over to a "warehouse" instead of manufacturing. Same company but they sent all the work over "there". He remains at the "warehouse" and the product that was suppose to be identical, is no where even close to the quality it once was. In the long run, you guessed it the customers WILL figure it out, if they haven't already, and they WILL buy somewhere else. Sad but true.

This is not the case with the auto manuf. They start there, and "end" here. Supposedly they will be selling for less the $10,000

They were supposed to be selling cars in Europe, until crash test results were publically displayed. Test showed horrible performance, but according to one of our safety guys, it did pass the legal requirements. Consumer backlash resulted in them pulling out. Haven't been following recent developments.
