Does GM's Decline Signal Problems for the Economy?
The Street - about 3 years
Detroit (TheStreet) -- If auto sales are an important economic indicator, then the recent performance of the largest U.S. automaker ought to raise a few concerns. General Motors reported weak sales in December and January. It missed fourth-quarter estimates, prompting some analysts to reduce future earnings estimates. Its inventories have increased and it is offering high incentives to truck buyers this month. None are good signs. GM shares closed Monday at $34.90, down $1.21. Year to date, GM shares are down 14.6%, while Ford shares are down 4% and the S&P 500 is down 2.6%. The reason for Monday's decline was the widespread reporting about discounts of up to $7,000 off list price for Chevrolet Silverado and GM Sierra as part of a Presidents Day promotion. The discounting added to concerns over GM's disappointing fourth-quarter earnings, reported Thursday, which called into question the company's future earnings outlook. In a recent report, Deutsche Bank analyst Rod Lache wrot ...

If Stocks Slid Because of Weak Auto Sales Then the Market Got It Wrong (Update 1)
The Street - about 3 years
Updated to include Ford and GM stock performance on Tuesday.DETROIT (TheStreet) -- Ford  and GM shares were rising Tuesday, as investors perhaps took note that the automakers' January sales declines, which contributed to the market's slide on Monday, were primarily attributable to harsh winter weather.Shortly before noon, Ford shares were up 28 cents to $14.82 and GM shares were up 52 cents to $35.77. "Cold weather in the Midwest and Northeast resulted in double-digit regional declines," wrote UBS analyst Colin Langan, in a note issued following the automakers' sales reports on Monday. "We see the January weakness as temporary." Additionally, Deutsche Bank analyst Rod Lache wrote: "Sales were up double-digits in the Western region (which had no weather affect), but down double digits in the Midwest and Northeast and down mid-single digits in the remainder of the country."

Ford and GM Say Winter Weather Depressed January Sales
The Street - about 3 years
Detroit (TheStreet) -- Ford  and GM  both reported diminished January sales and said weather was to blame. Ford said sales fell 7% last month to 154,644 units, while GM said sales fell 12% to 171,486 units. Ford said its retail sales fell 5%. Weather had the greatest impact in the Great Lakes and Central regions, where pickup truck sales are highest, Ford said. "Given the difficult weather in our largest sales regions, we are fortunate to have held in at retail as well as we did," said John Felice, Ford vice president, U.S. marketing, sales and service, in a prepared statement. "In areas where the weather was good, such as in the West, sales were up. "The poor weather also had an impact on the timing of some of our fleet deliveries," Felice said. "A bright spot is Lincoln, which had its strongest sales in four years." GM said retail sales were down 10%, although retail deliveries of passenger cars were up slightly. Fleet deliveries declined 18%, due to a planned reduction in rental ve ...

Boeing Offer Followed Union Push to 'Give Seattle a Shot,' Buffenbarger Says
The Street - about 3 years
SEATTLE (TheStreet) -- Boeing didn't originally plan to build the 777X in Seattle, but late in the summer the International Association of Machinists began talking with the company about what it would take for Seattle to retain the work. That is how the controversial contract offer being voted on Friday originated. "The union asked for the opportunity to pitch doing the work in Seattle," said IAM President Tom Buffenbarger in an interview. "We asked Boeing for a shot at keeping it in Seattle." A first round of negotiations led to the offer that workers rejected in a Nov. 13 vote by a 2-to-1 margin. A second round of talks led to the improved offer that is now on the table. If the offer fails again, Boeing is expected to select a site outside Washington for work on its newest airplane. If the offer is approved, Boeing could bring an estimated 10,000 new jobs to Washington to work at a wing plant that would bring work back to the United States from China and Japan. The plant could cos ...

Boeing Contract Choice: Corporate Arrogance or Union Fantasy
The Street - about 3 years
SEATTLE (TheStreet) -- The battle between Boeing and the International Association of Machinists is a tough one to watch, matching corporate arrogance against union miscalculation.Boeing is among America's best companies. Part of a global duopoly, it produces great products: customers line up years out to buy them. It is America's leading exporter and a symbol everywhere of American ingenuity and competence.In some ways, Boeing is more a nation-state than a company. It has its own Congressional delegation to do its bidding and a private bank, called the Export-Import Bank, which provides government backing for below-market loans to Boeing customers. Nearly half of Ex-Im Bank loans go to Boeing customers, some of them state-owned Middle East airlines that compete with U.S. airlines. All of this vast success has gone to Boeing's head. It wants to play chicken with its workers and the state of Washington, its principal home since 1916, because it thinks it cannot lose. The 787 Dreamliner ...

Ford Shares Drop on Plans for 2014 Investment in 2015 Growth
The Street - about 3 years
DETROIT(TheStreet) -- Ford  shares were falling Wednesday after the automaker said 2014 pretax profit will decline from their levels this year, one of the best in the company's recent history, as Ford positions itself for future growth by introducing new products.Shares were down $1.08, or 6.5%, to $15.62 on Wednesday. During a conference call with analysts and media, Chief Financial Officer Bob Shanks said 2014 pretax profit will be between $7 billion and $8 billion, down from about $8.5 billion this year. He said the principal cause will be lower profit in North America due to the rollout of 16 new vehicles during the coming year. The introductions will put Ford in a strong position for 2015, he noted. "We've had four very strong years of financial results," Shanks said. "We're going to have an increase in global market share this year that's quite meaningful. We do expect coming out of '14 that we will see improving results and improving volume."

Boeing and Seattle Union Leaders WIll Meet Again on 777X
The Street - about 3 years
SEATTLE (TheStreet) - The International Association of Machinists says senior leaders from District 751 will meet with Boeing  leadership on Wednesday. "The goal of today's meeting is to see what the two sides can do to secure Puget Sound as the site for 777X fabrication and final assembly," said District President Tom Wroblewski, in a prepared statement. "Our membership wants to build this airplane and we believe Boeing wants to do it here," Wroblewski said. The meeting follows Tuesday's feedback session, which was the first meeting between the union and the company since Nov. 13, when union members voted to reject Boeing's proposed eight-year contract extension. Boeing spokesman Doug Alder said Boeing representatives including Roy Conner, CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, met with IAM leaders on Tuesday.
