Fleetwood had better do some more belt tightening.

Their stock closed today at $.17, up 2 cents from their 52 week low of $.15, and down from a 52 week high of $6.85

I'm gonna chance it and buy a couple hundred of Fleetwood if they are still selling it at the low price. Nothing to lose, nothing to gain, but $200.00 Have fun camping, take a chance on life, it's free.

i am sorry about fleetwood employees losing their jobs but years ago i bought a fleetwood mobile home and neither dealer or factory would honor warrenty so as far as i am concerned fleetwood can go broke.

Maybe there is a bright side to this severe recession. Weaker companies will go under. Hopefully, also those with lousy products and customer dissatisfaction.

Hey, it's up to .105 already. Maybe if more of us would buy some of this stock things will start to look better for Fleetwood. Especially if someone will go out and buy a new motorhome.
