    Default GM IPO - Great Success!!!

    Please try to tell me that this is not the best outcome!

    Everything he has done that has had time to run its course in turning around this economy has been successful! And everything he has done has been belittled an undermined by the right spin. This guy has the peoples back, but the republicans with the help of their spin machine has convienced you that he is bad for you.

    The fact that the american people are debating quanitative easing speaks volumes of how these spin doctors have brought monetary actions to cable news and spun it as bad and before a month ago most didn't even know what it was.

    Anyone here own GM stock yet?

    What do you think the odds are that you can make money on it in the next 10 years?

    Internally, we had the opportunity to buy at the IPO price. I bought some, so I'm happy with the price being up. However, I will be keeping my eye on it to ensure I don't lose later.

    I'm in. Will watch closely though.
    For the sake of America and the Americans employed by GM, I hope they succeed.

    It looks like at least the short term goals of bailing out the American auto industry and returning GM to self-sufficiency as a public held company have been successful, and played out as well as could be hoped for.

    They've been given a life-saving transfusion....we'll see what they do with their second lease on life.

    I got a little too, although I won't be watching it that close.

    When I bought Ford stock I watched it really close. Great way to drive yourself nuts! I feel that a lot of the changes made are going to take time to really pay off.

    Let's see....

    US public loaned GM about $50 Billion and will get $12 billion back.

    UAW loaned GM $0 and will get $4 billion.

    I'm not irked that GM is going public. I'm irked that we didn't get our money back.
