Why Fiat (FIATY) Stock Is Down This Morning

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Fiat SpA (FIATY) are down -7.79% to $10.65 after analysts questioned whether it could achieve the targets of CEO Marchionne's new strategy for the automaker, and how the plan would be funded, Reuters reports.

Trading was briefly suspended in Milan after the shares dropped over 9%. 

Under the plan, outlined in 10 hours of analyst meetings, Marchionne pledged to multiply sales, raise profitability and slash debt by 2018, while investing $67 billion in a global expansion led by the Jeep, Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands, according to Reuters.
