Obama, Goodyear, Cooper, and China (GT, CTB)

The Obama Adminstration has levied huge import tariffs on imported Chinese tires claiming that they are exported to the US in a manner which damages the American tire industry unfairly.  As we asked in the UNUSUAL SUSPECTS this weekend, “Did President Obama just say, “Blue Horseshoe loves Goodyear?”…. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. (NYSE: GT) is up over 6% after the open and at 9:34 AM EST we have seen 495,000 shares trade hands.  Elsewhere we see that Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. (NYSE: CTB) is up over 8% at $15.80 at the same time, but that is on under 200,000 shares of stock.  -JON OGG
