VW on speculation they'd be bought by Porsche. "Most over valued" would perhaps be more accurate .

Or VAG should I say, as they are more often known .

Well obviously my 'send by PM' was ignored - not to worry.........

Volkswagen is correct - but it's no longer speculation. Porsche took another huge chunk today in Frankfurt.........

I cheated though as I'm quite interested in mfg. companies and it's been going on for a while. Lots of hedge funds with cash to burn? At a glance that company appears to be "worth" (that is the rate I'd consider shares to be a good deal at) only about 7% of the value it's trading at IMO.
