Fundamentals – GM, GPC, GPS, GRMN, GT

General Motors has some good research going on in fuel cells and other areas.

Genuine Parts distributes auto parts as well as other hydraulics and some office supplies.

Gap has declining year over year same store sales in its main brands but better ones in Old Navy which has a little lower margins I would think as it is more value oriented brand.

Garmin makes instruments such as sports indicators on watches and aviation equipment in the cockpit for example. It seems to be nicely the best at what it does even though stock price has been lagging probably because of volatility in margins and that’s the result of some of their products being somewhat expensive for the value they give, which you may have to do with, but some would do without.

Goodyear Tire makes blimps too as well as tires which they have made a little more advanced with sensor technology.

It is important to understand where the boundary of storytelling lie or you would be generating fake news, and...
