CHERRY HILL, N.J., Jan. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru of America, Inc. has reported record sales of 424,683 vehicles for the 2013 calendar year.  This is an increase of 26.2% over the previous record of 336,441 vehicles, which was set in 2012.  This fifth consecutive record also represents the largest ever single-year increase in volume for the brand.

The company also reported sales for December 2013 of 40,172 vehicles, marking the best December ever for the company, and an increase of 9.6% over December 2012.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
