If you look at the financial scorecard, things are a bit more lopsided.
Toyota meanwhile made money. (Comparisons are a bit off because of different fiscal years, but you get the idea.)
Toyota Motor Corp. also left its profit projection at 1.7 trillion yen ($15.91 billion) for the fiscal year on 25.5 trillion yen ($238.61 billion) in sales.They both did well in Europe's emerging markets.
Now they say we have been in a recession for a year. Which means that most of 2007 was not a recession. And still GM can't make money.
And you want me to invest in this corporation? Why? Toyota is clearly a better investment. If you can't make money in a good or average year, why should you expect to stay in business in a bad year?
