    BMW Battered After Slashing Outlook, Blames "Trade Conflicts"

    That BMW article is from ZeroHedge I know, take it with a pinch of salt. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-...rade-conflicts

    BMW Shareholders are not impressed by what management calls a "moderate" drop in pretax profit expectations due to trade tensions and pricing pressure.

    “The continuing international trade conflicts are aggravating the market situation and feeding uncertainty,” BMW said in a statement.

    “These circumstances are distorting demand more than anticipated and leading to pricing pressure in several automotive markets.”

    Specifically, BMW cut its overall 2018 pretax profit and automotive revenue and Ebit margin outlook.

    The initial plunge was the biggest drop since Brexit (Summer 2016), but a modest bounce has pulled share 'off the lows'

    I'd feel bad if their cars didn't become watered down crap.

    Trade tensions? What, do they need a safe space so they can go suck their thumbs in a warm quiet spot? Are they all sissy 'murrican kollij stoodints now? Krikey!

    What percentage does it keep and will it change if the 75% ownership of the JV goes through.
