Quick, name 10 car brands. Were any of them Volvo? If they were, would you have thought of it if you hadn’t just seen the name as the title for this snippet? We didn’t think so. In the United States, Volvo currently owns a tiny 0.3% of the market share for automobiles. Its products offer nothing special, competing in the midsize near-luxury segment along with basically every other car manufacturer under the sun. The only thing it consistently has to brag about is safety but in a country with strict safety regulations, this doesn’t give it much headway with consumers.

While Volvo has never been a popular car in the United States, it doesn’t appear to be very popular around the world either. Having moved its home base from Sweden to China in 2010 when Zhejiang Geely Holding acquired it, dealerships have been committing fraud in the company’s new home by inflating numbers to gain cash incentives meant for customers. With a corporate culture like this, we’re surprised Volvo has survived the last 4 years.

There cars are getting more stylish and better looking. I think that is the main factor that has hindered their sales.

A bit of a bandwagon play (mentioned in a FOOL e-mail), but I've always loved Volvo. The cars have a special place in my heart.

The numbers at a glance look good-lots and lots of assets on hand. 2006 seemed to be a very strong year. I hope that 2007 turns out to be the same.

The current 18 P/E seems pretty modest, too. Maybe a still a bargain even though it's been on a steady increase for so long?

Volvo... HMMM... every Yuppie I know owns or has owned a Volvo. Add to that mix, trucks and boats and you have a winner. The thumbs down people are the CAPS losers on this one no matter when they got in.

Good company. Good long term prospects. Near 52 week high is downside.

Ah, the six for one split. I doth decry that a company wouldn't do something like that if they weren't seeing some pretty sweet numbers. Unless of course you are Kenneth Lay.

What the heck happened today? Solid earnings and low P/E make a great buying opportunity.

Accumulation high with a respectable return on equity. Bullish trend appears to be solid.
