    If you bought one share, it is not nice. Now on the flip side, if you purchased 1,000 shares, that is NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The peanuts and beer took its toll. I had to fart really bad. I would normally ease away and let it out. I thought it was time for her to grow up.
    It was a varoooom! It shook the pine needles off the trees. She broke and ran.

    Nonsense. Only the Japanese benefit from their companies in the global economy.

    oh yes, the few public shares do so much to make the US economy tick.. But day trade away.. Imagine if that were actually an American company whose stock did good.... squeeze every penny you can out of apple too.

    :) and they'll blame the driver for 6 months before they issue it.. On second thought Toy drivers probably don't know how to not get their floor mats stuck or how to slow down when the car goes "out of control". :) Heck they already tried to justify their purchase as being positive for America they could probably just blame DuPOnt for their carpet fibers causing the wreck.

    Nothing in support in my area, assembly is here for everything I do from foreign parts for sure. Are you equating offshore contract manufacturing for a US based company using cheap labor to avoid the high cost of all the government crap here with a foreign company building here to avoid tariffs and duties here while blocking sales of our product in their country?
    Good stuff, looks like you've convinced yourself that sending our money to foreign companies is good for the US.. excellent

    ....and buy more. I wanted to buy Yota after the last huge recall. Too expensive though. Couldn't buy enough shares to make it worth it.

    Nice! Invest in more Asian companies so they can keep buying-up our American real estate and diluting our dollar! God forbid you would be patriotic and invest in an AMERICAN company!

    Did you buy more when it dropped to $60 a few weeks after you bought it?

    Ford (an American company) was at $9 last August and it at $13.70 now.

    I'm saying it isn't black and white anymore and find it humorous that some pretend to think it is. Dell is an excellent example of a US company sending jobs outside the US. Was it good business and necessary? Of course, but still not something to be proud of.

    Same for the "foreign" car manufacturers. It's not like they want to build cars here and source their parts domestically. But they do because it is a good business decision. At the end of the day our economy benefits as well.

    How long will the Japanese government and Bank of Japan be able to prop up their companies? Not sure if you got a long term hold there...

    I hate to bust some bubbles, but if you've got a 401K, and you invest in a variety of mutual funds, odds are that you, yes YOU are also investing in a foreign company to an extent. Guess some of you will really get your panties in a wad when I tell you that I also invested in Luxottica last October @$37.52 a share and it closed yesterday at $52.50.

    Closed yesterday @ $124.83. I wish I had 100,000 shares.

    Chicken soup for that one. I think I'm going to sell when/if it hits about $110/share.

    Could go higher. If it doesn't you are still ahead. If it keep climbing in the long-term you in at your initial lower price.
