7 companies bitten by the euro bug
The problems of Europe and its currency sometimes seem remote when you're an ocean away. But some seemingly all-American companies are feeling the pinch.
VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Even iconic "all-American" companies like McDonald's , Starbucks and General Motors have a lot riding on the euro. If you work for one of them, invest in one of them or just buy from one of them, you should hope the mess gets fixed soon........It was just less than one wek ago that right here an article titled "7 Stocks that will never let you down" was placed !!!! Now they say if you invest in one of them, you should hope the mess gets fixed soon !!!! MSN's writers suck. I'm entitled to spew out my opinions without facts to back them up, even though i try to be factual. MSN's writers are not entitled. They are supposed to be Proffessional, accurate and provide factual statements.
This article and the one a week ago FLIP-FLOP as bad as Romney and Obama.
looks like more than a bug is biting the companies, its the big boys in the wall street that are getting ready to sell out from under us. I say sell, sell, sell, before they do and take the profits from our reach.
Oil companies and the speculators are pushing gas and oil prices up for Labor day and people are cutting back on gas usage because of it.
Always some lame excuse for prices to go up and now its just the speculators and the hedge funds that are jacking it up for the big kill after Labor day.
Greece's dire economic plight has forced thousands of businesses to close, thrown one in five out of work and eroded the living standards of millions.
THIS IS SOON COMING TO THE US AND THANKS TO OBAMA
Of course overseas sales are critical to these companies. Obama has so poisoned the business climate and the future growth of any company in this country.
No US company in their right mind would invest in future growth here in the US with the suffocating regulations and all the new taxes coming on board after the first of the year.Those are the taxes that Obama and his administration purposely set up to happen after the elections, assuming he would win and it would be too late for you to do anything about. Ya that's right libs your man is a conniving con artist and you all took the bait.
Well, that's depressing!
Got any good news? You are a Rebel amongst the media, most the others put a positive spin on the worst news since all the liberals want another 4 of Obozo.
"40% of its sales from Europe and half of that from the United States, Germany, and France." ???? When did the United States become part of Europe? Is this guy a total moron?
the article states "These days, McDonald's gets 40% of its sales from Europe. Half of that comes from the United States, Germany and France..."
How can the US be half of the sales in Europe?
