There's a report today that showed a massive slump in automotive sales across all of the major manufacturers. Quarterly YOY sales for this company have taken a huge hit at -50% As much as the price of this stock has declined, it might be tempting to think that the difficulties facing the auto industry and the negative sales growth have already been priced in, but I think it's a trap, at least until the credit markets thaw out some more.

There are several companies trading below book value with little debt that are trading around 5 P/E that are still growing their earnings, which I think are a lot better buys right now.
