NHTSA to require rear-view cameras on all vehicles. Gentex leads with their in-mirror rearview camera display for the segment of cars without in-dash displays. I believe this will prove to be a cost-effective options for most automative manufacturers to meet the NHTSA requirements. http://usat.ly/1ggL19q

recent purchase of homelink from Johnson Controls & growing inclusion of auto dimming mirrors in cars as a safety feature should help to make this stock thrive in the years to come

It's way oversold for the modest miss in earnings. It will come back big time in time.

It is losing money and will continue to do so. Under chapter 11, most GM vendors must have taken a hit of some sort. I primarily prey on high P/E stocks. Also, the market cap is too high for the total scenario.
