✓ 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 has a great line of cars worldwide -styling has improved and management has improved. Also Alan Mulally is staying on. This stock now pays a nice dividend. I'm using options to increase profits on this stock - synthetic long when it fell from near 19 down to 12 which will play out in Jan 2014 and a covered call for March 2014 - which I will keep repeating if it continues to be range bound at 16 to 17. More of a solid performer than a growth stock now.
The demand for new cars is increasing.
Every product Ford introduces has excellent design and execution. If Ford would face reality with MyFord Touch and aggressively revisit that specific part of their autos it would remove the elephant in the Ford room. Ford is engrained in the high margin truck market. A lot to like, paying down debit and improving steadily over time. Dividends rule!
Two years ago I bought 1000 shares of F @ $17.80I lost my patience with it, I cannot even recover money I put into it. I will sell it tomorrow, I do not believe F will move up in the near future. Any thoughts from anybody? Any advice, please?
Best fleet sales, best CEO, introducing natural gas vehicles, stronger consumer sentiment for NOT taking TARP bailout money
I have Ford as a hold now but Co. is doing great. It may be a good time to get in
Ford continues to make the right moves and build the right vehicles.
Ford took a bitter pill a few years back slashing about 25% of their workforce and not taking a bailout. That has definitely gotten them on the right track to become a a valuable company again
Ford has it right. They are firing on all cylinders. Expect stock to close above 18 again this year.
Most people are optimistic about Ford's aspect in China for the wrong reasons. Ford will gain market share not because more people are aspiring to own, but because Beijing + Shanghai are already congested with cars and air pollution. To combat air pollution the government will be actively supporting electric vehicles, and Ford's product, if they can successfully bring to China, can stand to ride the structural trend.
I believe the Ford will strongly outperform the market in the coming years, mainly due to a large upswing in desirable products, as well as the financial division which is rock solid. I work at a multi-line car dealership with Ford, Toyota, Scion, Hyundai, Lincoln, Mazda, and Mercedes-Benz all under one roof. Over the past 3 years the Ford lineup has gotten considerably better than in previous years, as well as being priced VERY competitively they are one of our most popular. If Ford could reinvent the Lincoln brand I believe it would quickly give toyota a challenge as the number one automaker, but at the moment most of our customers won't give a lincoln a second look, instead passing by to the similarly priced Mercedes model.
Solid company, great product.
11 year ave age of cars on the road combined with some of the best new product out there.
its ford, not the government!
I like the innovation some of the newer models have and they are willing to change with the times unlike some companies. The F150 is always going to be a staple and I l like the management.
Ford is making great products that are based on technologies that work today while investing heavily in emerging technologies that will sustain long term growth. By taking a different path than GM and Chrysler in 2007 Ford made a statement about itself and America in general that rang true to the American public and press, Having a history of being controlled by four generations of the same family also helps Ford connect to the average citizens of many different countries. As long as Ford doesn't have another Explorer/Firestone type fiasco and keeps producing products that the public wants, it will reap many extra benefits on public sentiment alone.
good vehicles, tons of cash, wall street approved ceo, leader in china.
must sell cars again.
I like the momentum but I think it's still slightly undervalued. I'll reevaluate this one in January when my official time starts
A few years ago Ford was the dog of the industry and today they are probably the best domestic producer; Sales are booming as people are updating their autos and sales in China are doing very well also. But because this is such a cyclical industry, there may be a time to sell this stock before it hits the end of this cycle.
