Don't ignore securities litigation paperwork. It's free money (minus the effort).

Just general observation. No position in FCAU. Position in Exor, but that does not give me FCAU litigation standing.

Other than the effort required, are there any potential downsides / reasons not to do this?

Yes and no. For GM's lawsuit, if you bought in 2012, you were excluded - while other shareholders were able to take money from the coffers. Was this fair? Not really, at least 1 shareholder challenged it, although I'm not sure what came of it. You can also object if, for example, you don't agree or aren't able to participate for whatever reason.

But if you're in the money, it's essentially free and likely fair to you (although again, it takes money from shareholders' coffers and leaves management alone)

SAN just mentioned in their earnings call recently extending the agreement between Santander USA (SC) with Chrysler for another 4-5 years to provide financing services.

So I'm guessing FCAU doesn't start its own fiancing arm anytime soon.

hey all:

FCAU has reported earnings and they were better than expected.

FCAU also sees strong earnings & margins for the rest of the year and they are sticking to their sales & profit guidance.

North America did the best of course.

Stock is only up $.36 for the day....guess they didn't do as good as TSLA did.  Oh well, live and learn!

I added some fcau pre-market today as the selloff yesterday seemed overdone.

This is not an easy stock to own and many people, who initially owned it, have given up on it. It also became a quite boring company (without ferrari, with new CEO). I don’t know which way this will go eventually, but there is definitely upside.

On a side note these guys really need to work on their delivery on the conf calls, audio quality is quite bad (and it sounds like they are just not talking into the mic), and a bit more drive would fit them well. You could get the impression that they’re talking about some random, unrelated company on those calls.

Nissan wants Renault to reduce stake to revive Renault-FCA deal talks


https://www.reuters.com/article/us-renault-m-a-fiat-chrysler/nissan-wants-renault-to-reduce-stake-to-revive-renault-fca-deal-talks-wsj-idUSKCN1US2N3

Good news! Great price!

Obviously nothing is guaranteed, but I like seeing the continued interest in getting a deal done after the very public break-up.

It's happening

Prior to the completion of the transaction, FCA would distribute to its shareholders a special
dividend of €5.5 billion, as well as its shareholding in Comau. In addition, prior to completion,
Peugeot would distribute to its shareholders its 46% stake in Faurecia. This would enable the
combined groups’ shareholders to equally share in the synergies and benefits that would flow
from a merger while recognizing the significant value of FCA’s differentiated platform in North
America and strong position in Latin America, including its market-leading margins in those
regions. It would also reflect the added value that FCA’s higher-end global brands Alfa
Romeo and Maserati would bring given their substantial development potential.

-3.7B EUR in estimated annual synergies
-looks like the premium is being given to FCAU?
