"I love the smell of hyperbole in the morning."

Sure, the posters on the F board would like F to rise soon to 40 but anyone who buys F anticipating a short term 135% rise in the share price of a mature giant like Ford Motor is not investing; he's buying a lotto ticket. If you wait long enough a good company will rise that much. Of course, if it's a good company, it won't be all that long and the ride won't be adrenalin inducing. writers are, as a rule, far too breathless with excitement for my taste.
