Great investment opportunity.
Okay I missed my estimate on VW calling for it to hit $40-42 by the end of 2016. So today it closed above 40 at 40.10. I missed my estimate by 11 months. So how has it done compared to S&P500, since the shit hit the fan? It's up 76.5% since that dark day; the S&P500 has done fantastically, up almost 38-39% during that same time period. I still own more S&P than VW.

Multi-hundredaire. To be honest, I'm very happy with it. But under the circumstances, no way I was putting a major portion of our IRA's into that. Contrarian investing takes some large cajones to go all in.
