Shareholder value takes a big hit at GM, Ford, Visteon, Delphi and Lear

The collective market capitalization lost by the fabulous five in 2005 is an incredible $31.9 billion, according to a Detroit Free Press article Saturday.
The biggest losses, of course, were at GM and Ford, at $11.7 billion and $12.6 billion, respectively. And with no earnings, and little earnings upside, analysts see no reason for stock prices to rise appreciably, leaving a lot of investors holding big losses.

Telling comparisons: investors value ketchup maker H.J. Heinz more highly than GM, and video game company Electronic Arts more highly than Ford.
