$3 Billion Companies: Sun and GM

The online Wall Street Journal showed these interesting statistics this morning:



Market Cap
Cash from Operating Activities
(Last Quarter)

Sun Microsystems$2.8 billion
$148 million
General Motors
$3.0 billion
($9,661 million)


Here at Sun, we are often tempted to see the proverbial glass half-empty and draining fast. 

However, being part of a business that generates positive cash flow in a quarter when the financial markets collapse and the king of the automotive industry hemorrhages $10 billion in cash isn't so bad.

Plus, it's nice to know Jonathan isn't in front of Congress with tin cup in hand.

About

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.

Thanks for stopping by.
