Ford.... Only Billionairres would ever bother buying FORD Shares



November 16, 2009 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: F

6 days ago John Rosevear made a case against (F) FORD.  This so moved George Soros.....John's eloquent and intelligent analysis of FORD's share price, fundamentals, and actual true value of the company penetrated the heart of a Billionairre....

Of course I jest...I kid....the reality is that I am probably BANNED from Motely Fool other than Blog Posts for how heated I get when I see Motley Fool article writers continuing to BASH  (F) Ford and other stocks that do not warrant such treatment.

It really irks me that these analysts don't take a FAIRNESS DOCTRINE approach to present both sides of the FORD story fairly..... so as not to motivate someone to dump their shares or buy shares on pure emotion after reading the article.... 

In other words.. Don't Motivate people to do something by over hyping or over bashing a stock like FORD.

In short... John Rosevear's arguments were not listened to..heeded by.... George Soros....

Soros has created a new stake in (F) Ford....

My original stake was as low as $5.07.    I sold that stake to buy back on a dip at $5.80.   I bought several times on a 5 handle before then adding to my stake at a 7 handle.

The stock trades above 8 and thus I have a huge...huge....profit riding on (F) right now.

So....  Welcome aboard George Soros... even though I don't like your politics.

Soros stake couldn't have been cheaper than a 6 handle based on the report of Sept. 30th..... Previous quarter..

Regardless... I strongly believe I got in to the stock at a full buck less than Soros.  *yay*  Go me!!!

Boooooooooooo  Rosevear..... Boooooooooo

I think y'all should go read the article (and the 5 or 6 others I've done on Ford since the beginning of 2009) before you say I made a case "against" Ford, because that's not what I did at all. I'm a Ford shareholder, have been since early March, and plan to be for a long time. I think Alan Mulally is probably the best CEO in America not named Buffett, and I think this turnaround has a good chance of ending up as a management success story for the ages. 

And I've said all of that over and over again, and will keep saying it as long as it continues to be true.

What I was questioning in that article is whether the stock is a buy NOW, at current prices. I think that's an open question, and I'll look more at that later this week. That's a very different thing from being "against" Ford, which I'm not.

ps: I don't think Soros reads my stuff. Of course, I don't think you guys did either.

It's about perception.... Your latest article(s) gave at least 1 investor the perception to dump the stake...As evidenced in the comments thread.

Check the comments thread!

Investor said they sold at a $4.30 cents because of the Motley Fool Negativity towards the Stock and they are angry about it ever since.

Just saying that there's plenty of danger in presenting an unfairly negative tone in an article about (F) Ford....

Especially at a time when we already got Negativity out of and Cody from Fox Business.  What we really needed AT THAT time was someone to praise FORD rather than jump on the negativity bandwagon.

I own 1000 shares of MTXX and I presented the GOOD with the BAD... in the same blog article.  And I emphasize the DANGERS in taking any position long/short in a stock like MTXX that has it's share of problems....hefty problems...

But... I try to emphasize how to invest in a risky stock rather than just trash/praise one.  And that approach is to be able to identify with the company and the company's products...

I always say.... If you don't buy FORD cars...Trucks....SUVs in your entire lifetime.... Don't invest in FORD....

If you do buy FORD's products... Go for it! If you think they are doing a good job....  But visit their Dealerships at least once a month!

Well, I guess your right. Only Billionaires would risk their money to buy a precious car manufacturer which has deteriorating sales. But would just like to express my gratitude on ford cars. The catalytic converter that they make for their cars are with high quality.
