    Any ideas as to how play the $F stock today? I am a bit confused (long $F). Thanks!

    Who cares, $F is positioned to do quite well for the next while. I wouldn't concern myself with the post earnings behaviour.

    Decent chance of volatility. Typically a bunch of short term investors rush in on the good news at the open, pushing up the share price early, but then they start cashing out by noon to grab profits, and the price ends up down for the day. Buy on the anticipation, sell on the news, as they say.

    Ford releasing a statement has no effect on its business standing and strength, so I would do nothing. EPS beat in transitionary period is a great thing, revenue miss in transitionary period is expected.

    Always interesting to see how the pseudo intellects will twist this report to every conceivable conclusion. The fact of the matter is quite simple. The report is good and actually no one should be surprised if they have followed the progress of F for the past couple of years and remained objective on what they saw.

    Ford beat on revenues as the expectation was for $36.1 billion. Ford is heading for $20 and that could be next week. Jobless claims were down to 284,000 and that means more people working and more people buying cars. Look for a strong Q4 and a very strong 2015.

     

    One last thing - many people were waiting to buy Ford until they made money in Europe - well that changed well ahead of schedule.

    Also...appears to be a discrepancy in revenue estimates somewhere. CNBC reporting Ford rev estimates at $36.2B...which would make today a $1.2B beat

     

    At any rate...today will likely be some psychology trade instead of fundamental trade...ignore the noise

    The revenue estimate reported by Yahoo was for $36.16B - the actual came out to $37.411B - for a $1.25B beat on revenues.

     

    There was some confusion over Ford's "Automotive Revenues" which were $35.365B, down from $36.079B a year ago. The other $2B was from Ford's Financial Services.

    F beat analysts but like to see F in a major momentum to see 25 by Labor Day. Anyhow F up YTD 15%. Not too shabby!
