  • Ford's Sales Performance Will Drive An Earnings Beat [View article]
    Take away American jobs.................Ford has invested more money in developing and manufacturing cars in other countries and I can count.

    More money in developing a better quality product right here - is the better idea.

    My charts....... I don't see Ford going above $18. It got hammered there and there are strong headwinds against the stock at that price.

    To even get to $18, the market has to continue to climb - very questionable. Obama just hammered Keystone again, gas prices climbing, beef prices all time high, medical prices skyrocketing, all this stuff just keeps mounting up, the dam has got to break sooner or later. And we're not even talking world problems - thank you Putin.

    You here checking my spelling? I think you people need a divorce. You keep comparing yourself to GM. GM this GM that GM.......

    If I were Ford, I'd come out with 50,000 mile warranties on every new remodel. You going to make the car, make it right the first time. That's only half of the KIA (I think they have a 100k 10 year. Damn nice looking car for that kind of warranty.) Have the b.....s to stand up and back the quality you keep claiming you have. Screw that dividend - warranty the product.

    Then............da dah!.............I'd start comparing myself to the German cars or Asian cars. Screw GM - they don't exist anymore. Be somebody!! Instead of walking around hunchbacked and whining about not getting enough respect like GM.

    You want to continue being Kmart - you should be treated that way.

    Happy holiday weekend............. ;-) What ever you buy, I hope it reaches the sky.......!

    Because it's GM's turn to belly-up on quality problems, let's not forget that Ford has had serious quality problems in the past to the point that a large percentage of car buyers consider Ford "quality challenged". Now if you think GM's problems represent a significant increase in sales for Ford, I think you miss the obvious > both companies use the same suppliers, use the same work ethics, and partner on many projects. GM buyers angry over the quality issues are not just going to jump into Ford's lap. Most have been there already.

    First rule of buying a new car used to be - never - never - buy the first year of a new model. Wait till they get the kinks out. How many remodels does Ford have coming out in the next 18 months. You could have a tsunami of recalls considering Ford and GM use the same suppliers. Or, you could get lucky and win over the world. You got a better chance of betting red or black on a roulette wheel.

    For all those pied pipers claiming Ford is on it's way to $30+ a share, you could be looking at $10 a share if the remodels hit major recall problems. Put that together with major issues on the new F-150 aluminum adventure and you're looking at Ford on the auction block in two years.

    "Starcorral"

    "but on the impression consumers and investors have of Ford's philosophy of service and responsiveness in every aspect of business"

    Ford's philosophy over the last eight years is to continue on with business the same way they did for the previous 100 years. Profits first and quality second. It's hard to find anyone - anyone - who doesn't drive a Ford or work for Ford who has a good thing to say about a Ford. People who have quality problems with GM will likely go Asian where they can get better warranties and cars with better reputations.

    Cool,

    Well, considering the car companies "often" buy parts from the same suppliers, recalls are not going to be an issue for one and not the other. I just took my wife's Acura in to get the ignition lock changed on a recall. Don't ask - I didn't.

    You sold your Ford stock. So if the stock goes sideways the dividend will come out of the share price so you'll win by not being tied to a rock going nowhere. If the stock goes down you saved yourself a lot of grief by being out. Considering the third option is the stock goes up, you win two ways and only lose on one. That's a 66% positive response in your favor. ;-)

    I learned how to do that by watching all these P/E wizards using the magic of analysts guesses and guidance guesses to come up with magical stock prices for next year.

    Have a nice holiday weekend - and if the world solves all of it's problems by Monday - and that would be a new president in Russia and the US, you can buy back in. Ford doesn't lead the pack.

    Funfun

    Yeah, all of us here were wondering about (we or me). Actually, all of us here were reading what you had to say, not spelling - grammar - timeliness - etc. But some on here are so grandiose they are constantly running for "King Forum". Keep writing "funfun" I often use the plural when writing - it's a tool authors use to suddenly connect the reader to the speaker, etc. etc.

    I kept your response that (you know who) got deleted. Will use it down the road.... ;-)

    Are you talking about the three Mexicans that are still in Mexico, or the 20 million now living in the California?

    Actually, I read it as ( 'Mericans ) aMericans. Now it could be a contraction of Americans and Mexicans = 'Mericans. That's an interesting mix of the two. But I'd make sure before throwing that racist label around.
