    I was amazed that it was trading in that narrow corridor at the bottom of $15 for as long as it did...

    That's the famous Ford fakeout pattern. Seen it before. Will see it again I expect.

    Ford reaffirms the economy is Perking! Middle income, red neck, and luxury sales ALL UP in March. Pent-up consumer Demand Shines, a Harbinger of
    Future Expectations. And for Ford, F volume is already at 12MM at 9:50AM ...
    Growth returns, F goes to $18 shortly, breaks that resistance, and heads to $20
    by December. It just became a great trading stock again, not to mention the
    long term objectives of so many convinced Investors. Buy, Buy, Buy!!!

    Ah, Alpha says sales were up 3.4% but Ford's website says 3.0%???? Lincoln no longer part of Ford or should we look at total corporate sales rather than cherry pick?

    Ford said 3% in the "headlines" - rounded down from 3.4% as shown in the details.

     

    Ford Brand was up 2.6%, while Lincoln Brand was up 31.4% - so the combined sales were up 3.4% - since Lincoln only constitutes about 3.7% of Ford's combined Total.

     

    Soooo many percentages...
