LONDON (MarketWatch) -- J.P. Morgan upgraded General Motors Corp. (GM :
36.77, +0.28, +0.8% ) to overweight from neutral and Ford Co. (F : 9.08, -0.03, -0.3% ) to overweight from underweight, saying signs are emerging that unions will engage in radical changes as the car makers face rising costs from health care benefits. A health care deal along the same lines as that done by Goodyear "could represent the biggest source of earnings upside at both GM and Ford," the broker said.

At one point I realized that Cramer (if you don't know, don't ask) didn't know much at all about Ford
THEN just recently heard him say (vast paraphrase) he doesn't base investment judgements on the company or their performance but
on the STOCK's performance :blink:

that said, the thing that continues to interest/amaze me is that Ford stock has been one of the most actively traded over the past year(s?).

considering my opinion that most stock activity is in fact 'insider(inspired)trading', wish I knew what these traders are thinking...
