Here is an interesting conumdrum. You all know people who like to gamble in Vegas etc. My suggestion to some of you is to gamble at least five to six hundred on these penny stocks. Buy 100 shares of these Dow hammered stocks.So you will spend about 600 with fees. Put them away for 3 or 4 years. At the end of that time, see where you stand. At least if you lose, you can write off the amount on your taxes! Can you do that in Vegas? What have you got to lose?

What they don't say is that when GM shares were at this level 70 years ago, the dollar was worth about 20 times what it is today, maybe more. That REALLY puts the company's condition in perspective.
