More on Ford's sales strength in China


Ford (F) brand sales in China rose 57% in Q1 led by strong demand for the Explorer, Edge and Focus models.

March is the first time ever that the automaker sold over 100K vehicles in China in a month.

Ford is planning on making a big splash at the Beijing Auto Show later this month with new model introductions for the local market.

    Remember, Ford China sales in 2013 were about 60% higher than 2012, now 2014 is set to run 50% higher than 2013 . . . . . doesn't matter if you arrive fashionably late to the party when all the good looking guys are lining up to ask you to dance the rest of the night away.

    I say the Q-e funds or just plain old politics is the reason F has been stalled out for over a year now. OB is pouring money into GM because he is committed to support GM. Notice how NYSE holds back F all day long every day!!!

    I would like to know the cash flow in china, investments vs earnings cash. I have to believe that China is still a cash draw on the company. When does this turn around?
