    if you're lucky you'll have a couple hundred, if you're unlucky you'll have nothing.

    So you buy 57 shares at $1.75 per share.

    If the stock goes to $10/share your 57 shares would be worth $570, or an overall profit of $470 before transaction fees.

    Not a lot of return, but not a huge risk either. Add another zero to your initial stock purchase and then it might be worth it.

    i'd buy shares in them

    we can pretty much expect japanese style protectionism of our auto industry in the coming years in the name of efficiency and environmental policy and as a way to prop them back up to profitability and to spur job growth as all old cars are systematically taxed off the roads
