5. @themotleyfool: It didn't need a bailout. Its cars get great reviews. So why are Ford's (NYS: F) (NYS: GM)

Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler all posted solid sales gains in September. However, with General Motors selling trucks like hotcakes, Ford's sales numbers simply weren't as impressive. What's behind the slower sales at Ford?

4. @themotleyfool: Why the future of music might not sound quite so harmonious to Apple's (NAS: AAPL)

A new service may be here to disrupt the music industry. Spotify -- a cloud-based music service -- recently launched in the U.S. and has attracted 2 million paying subscribers with its freemium model. Other music companies, such as Sirius XM Radio (NAS: SIRI) and Pandora Media (NYS: P) , might need to come up with a response, since Spotify is gaining traction domestically and already has a large base in Europe.

3. @themotleyfool: What's the worst that could happen if Greece goes belly-up? (More than it already has, we mean.) Plenty:

Recently, Berkshire Hathaway (NYS: BRK.A) (NYS: BRK.B) announced that the company will repurchase shares, indicating that Berkshire stock was undervalued. Yet investors seem to be ignoring this opportunity that Buffett has presented. Fool Alex Dumortier thinks that's a big mistake.
