Will the stock market value ever affect the production of ford vehicles? Like mustang? I know it's mega popular, but I don't think that makes it safe...

Sales will determine that.

Stock is a way of getting more capital basically. It's kind of like a loan, but not really.

The stock holders can help determine what direction the company can take by voting for the board of directors. In all reality it all comes down to supply and demand.

Stock prices have no affect on the production. Stock prices are a reflective value of the company based on the assessed value and profits of a company. owning stock in a company makes you an owner of a small portion of the company. automotive companies often are affected by quarterly projections and media. This its the cause of fluctuation for ford. Other things that affect stock price occur when the company posts dividends to stock holders, product recalls and restructuring of internal budgets. Labor unions also have powerful influence.

Wow, why would they ever drop that low?? But it's really good that they increased so much for you. Do you still have them or did you make bank on them?

D@mn I wish I had back then instead of spending almost 18,000 on a Mustang.

When I saw google at $99 a share I was like who'd buy that well now I'm kicking myself.

Instead I was in investing in CD's (certificates of depression)

Still have most. I invested 3800$ cashed out 20800 (net 17k.) Still have the rest. Had one dividend payout which I converted into more shares and futures. Take an intro economics course and intro accounting. All the info you really need to understand the market. My next investment will be gold probably.

I was told gold is going to be good, but platinum might be a better choice. I didnt know the full story but I don think it's not 99 a bad idea to invest in platinum too

Well it its true that platinum is on the rise, gold and platinum are substitutes in many ways. Precious, manufacturing, and collector pieces. Gold reserves are relatively low and very little venture capital has been invested in gold producing companies in the past 18 months. This indicates that gold will spike as soon as another major bid on the reserves take place. It will also take time for mining companies to respond. Platinum reserves are relatively high and as soon as gold is injected into the production market, platinum cost will be too high. Gold first, then oil, then platinum. Also a good call to watch the traded mining companies closely too.
