✓ 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.
Ford is quietly moving forward into the future with their products. Ford is outpacing the industry in technology and future technologies. Issues Ford needs to overcome in the near future:1. Automate and modernize their manufacturing facilities. 2. Build plants in manufacturing friendly states.3. Increase worker productivity4. Change draconian work rules4. Increase quality and pride5. Greater employee involvement in innovation6. Significantly change/improve worker-company relationship 7. Dilute the power of the union while improving worker conditions and compensationOtherwise Ford will go the way of the other automobile manufacturers in the USA.
buying the dip at 3% yield, speculating a run to 18 could happen soon maybe.
The F series truck has been a consistent industry award winner and consumer favorite for several years. Make all the Found On Road Dead jokes you want; but Ford is a buy for now because it is under $20.00 making a large share purchase possible and through all the trials of the auto industry Ford gets up after every fall. They also have avoided the majority of bad news recently with the focus on GM recalls. That is not to say they don't ever have them; but they have a current win streak. Let's see how long it will last. My last point for those who wish to trade instead of buy and hold is look at Ford's history over the past several years. Every December the price drops; and every January it goes back up. Is it worth the risk to buy in bulk and see if you can make a little extra New Year's money? That is for you to decide. For those who are in it for buy and hold; Ford will go up over the next several years. Buy now while the price is still low. Oh, one more thing. Ford owns the Detroit Lions. That may not impress most of you; but it does give them advertising for a lot of NFL football, especially on Thanksgiving Day.
Low p/e, low p/s, good blue chip with a smart new ceo. In the event of a downturn would be hurt less than other stocks.
Ford has revamped itself over the past 5 years and its cars are not very modern, reliable and competitively price. I expect they will have strong performance against japanese and german rivals
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
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
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.
