Pretty sweet gig, making a short video and collecting money on the ad fees.
I agree with his point regarding Ford. Ford selling their ownership stake in Mazda, which they did gradually, was perhaps not the best decision (they did need the cash at times) but a great thing for Mazda, when you look at the cheap looking junk Ford puts out (2020 model shown).
The one thing that shakes my faith in capitalism is idiots making money being idiots. And filthy rich entertainers.
I can't find out what Ford sold it for in late 2008, but right now Mazda stock is recovering from a 7 year low ($4.16 in August). Been as high as $13.35 (Dec 2013) and is currently at $4.37. I keep thinking about taking a small position, but reported sales are declining. Gonna watch & wait.
