      Volvo raises 2014 sales outlook (up 20%) after China gains drive first-half profits

      'Chinese-owned Volvo Car Group raised its outlook for 2014 sales after returning to profit in the first half of the year on strong growth in China and a moderate upturn in Europe more than offset lingering weakness in the United States..."In the U.S. our target is to keep volumes flat [this year]. We face large challenges there and they will remain," Samuelsson said. "I feel there are some initial positive indications there so I would hope that toward the end of the year we will be able to see some first positive signs also in terms of sales."'

      Northeast, this news isn't negative and doesn't support the assertion that Volvo is on the precipice. Move along everybody.
