✓ Watching F
on My Watchlist
From its assembly lines in the early 1900s to the Mustang and the F-Series trucks, Ford is an American car-making icon.
A friend told me the valuation was good. I didn't actually bother to check.
Europe will finally turnaround and the aluminum F150 will continue to sell well
6/27/14: I could be wrong but I see the GM recalls and airbag issues as a possible factor swaying people on the fence over to the Ford camp. The new F-150 being made from aluminum will most likely position it as a leader in the industry amongst the people who either need or just can't see themselves driving a car(like me!). They also have been increasing/improving their higher MPG cars. The negatives I can see to their bottom line would be increases in interest rates and energy costs but when compiled with the previous positives I feel Ford could be a win in the long term.I am no expert and could be wrong. In fact, following any of my stock advice might be like following Han Solo as he flies through an asteroid field!
Able to jump in at nearly 3% yield on a dividend growth stock with plenty of room for increases, both with current earnings and with any growth.
In my opinion Ford is America's #1 brand. It is currently trading at a historically low PE ratio and the company has been inmproving it's bottom line every quarter since the great recession. This quality company will go to $25 by the end of the year, suprising the market with huge gain in marketshare over both Toyota and GM.
Book value, Low P.E., China increases, Aluminum and weight reduction, price of gas rising, Europe turnaround, 11 year average age of vehicles in US. There's so much tailwind to this stock it's ridiculous. It's a low risk dividend play with massive upside
It just needs a boost from sales and I don't see that just yet.
solid product line, better value in these difficult economic times, hasn't been plagued by recalls like a few other manufacturers.
Future Expansion looks promising
They are heavily exposed to the rebounding US economy, reduced their exposure in Europe but still poised to grow, and is just starting to make a strong foothold in the Chinese market while they were focusing on India
I think the public will respond well to the new aluminum frames for the ford pickups. Considering the new frames will make the trucks 700 pounds lighter, their mpg will significantly increase. With gas prices on the rise and no signs of them dropping consumers are going to consider mpg more; even in trucks.
I think Ford is growing their share of the automotive market and their stock will reflect that.
Div. (Yield) $0.50 (3.1%)Current Yield . . . . . . 3.9%
will double in four years
Best managed of the big three American auto companies with great growth prospects in China, a strong dividend and a favorable PEG ratio. What's not to like?
Ford is moving fast and continually improving its lineup.
Want a reason to invest in Ford? Just look around while driving and see how many new Ford cars and trucks you see. With a P/E of 8.92 and a PEG ratio of 0.78 the stock is clearly undervalued, especially with signs of strengthening in European and Asian Markets. One also can't rule out a dividend that's been growing steadily over the past three years and is hovering around or above three percent.
Why will this stock outperform / underperform the S&P 500 ?I don't have a clue, but I like Ford's history ...http://stockcharts.com/freecharts/gallery.html?s=f... and its position in the market place (future tech).The dividend can't hurt.
In the long term I think that Ford is doing some good things. They have a stigma about their cars and I really don't know why their cars don't rank higher. With that said the F-150 will still do well and I think that they are innovating some new hybrid and electric cars that will pay off soon. Also Ford seems to be emerging in China and could be a big player over there soon.
The world economy is not good so I sold my stock.
