  • Ford Motor Company - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Jul 17, 2014 5:45 PM | about stocks: F

    The Chart of the Day belongs to Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for new highs frequency in the last month, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a by on 5/27 the stock is up 9.78%.

    Ford Motor Company (F) produces cars and trucks. The company and its subsidiaries also engage in other businesses, including manufacturing automotive components and systems and financing and renting vehicles and equipment. The company is divided up into the following four operating segments: Automotive, Visteon Automotive Systems, Ford Motor Credit Company, and The Hertz Corporation.
