What do you think of this long-established premium car manufacturer? What are your favourite car companies? 🌐🔧

So that's very good news, which I like, but I don't have Mercedes stock in my portfolio and probably don't want it. I only have $P911.DE+2.2% in my portfolio from this sector.

If you have a Porsche, that's good enough for you.

This is a great move :) it really gives me more confidence that they will be well off

Do you have Mercedes shares? They are one of my favourite European car companies!

I don't have a car company, I tried to pick one up last year, but in the end I decided it probably wasn't the segment for me
