    Porsche makes U.S. profits without foreign exchange hedges



    Reuters / August 22, 2005
    FRANKFURT -- German luxury sports car maker Porsche earns money in the United States even without currency hedges that flatter its results, Chief Executive Wendelin Wiedeking was quoted as saying.

    "The market in the United States is very large. We could do even more there," Germany's Boersen-Zeitung quoted him as saying in an interview to be published on Tuesday, suggesting it was under-represented there compared with parts of Europe.

    I wonder if it's because of their minimalist approach when it comes to revamping their line-up... or could it be the whopping $40K profit from every 911 sold.

    Well that can only lead to the following, either the dear Doctor Wiedeking is full of [censored], or he is beating the [censored] out of the European buyers with the current exchange rates

    Re: Porsche makes U.S. profits without foreign exchange hedg

    I did an analysis on Porsche last year - no matter what they say, they are one of the best when it comes to making profit on currency hedging - they are the Goldman Sachs of automakers (I don't mean to portray Goldman in a good way cause they really aren't - they have trailed my firm in many league tables countless times for the last several quarters) - I call them that because like Goldman, a lot of undisclosed revenue is a result of betting on which way the currency is going. You have to tip your cap to them, they are faring much better in this area than their American counterparts (even better than Daimler). I haven't reviewed their financials recently, but when I penned that analysis, the profit they make from currency hedging outweighs the profits they make on all their vehicles combined.

    Impressive financially, I say.

    No, I'm not pretentious in needing to wear a suit every day (as per their dress code).

    Top 3 in investment banking revenues YTD however (a clue for ya).
