  • Best S&P 500 Industrial Stocks According To Buffett Principles: A Look At Jacobs Engineering [View article]
    Those of you who might follow Ford can quickly draw a parallel in the behavior of the stock price over the past few years. Explanations that I have heard from the "pundits" are all the same and non definitive.
    Both are excellent well managed companies. JEC should be $75 to $80 a share and Ford should be $30. Good news drives the stock down 90% of the time. Hardly a day goes by without the announcement of a new contract award covering the globe.
    I own both stocks and yes, I get tired of watching them languish for absolutely no reason.. In my opinion, when "they" want the stock price to rise "they" will make it rise.............."they" being the institutions. If you still are holding the stock yours will rise too. Overly simplified but nonetheless the fact.

  • Investors Will Ultimately Understand How Ridiculous Ford Motor's Valuation Is [View article]
    Only going by your bio. It plainly says you're 72 years old with a 2 million dollar portfolio. Since you make it public I do not feel that I have encroached on your privacy. I stand by my comment on your stupid post.

    This discussion board is not for touting "other opportunities". It is a discussion of Ford Motor Company. Your contribution to the discussion is a one sentence emotional outburst which is actually comical in nature. When you state you have a 2M portfolio on a public forum one has to wonder if you misplaced some zeroes. I am sure there are many on this board who can quietly trivialize that "2,000,000" number

  • Morgan Stanley sours on Ford [View news story]
    Frankly, I would love to know how many shares MS is short and when exactly did they short them. I have long contended that these giant institutions can do this at will with total impunity.

  • Update: Ford's Second Vehicle In Command [View article]
    Gentlemen, we have Ernest Hemingway and Zane Grey .....AND we have this discussion forum. You all have made my week here and I thank you. I read everything and ALL your points are valid.
    Now a quick summary by me between $15 and $18 per share the overwhelming consensus {not by us} is that Ford represents a reasonably good investment for the long term. Geopolitical factors not withstanding !!
    Que sera can bet if production gets stopped we will hear about it quickly and in big PRINT and then it will have some legs.... not a whisper from an employee who may be possibly over his own head and not privy to all the facts.
    The weekend is here...the golf course course is open and the weather here in North Carolina is great. See you Monday

  • Update: Ford's Second Vehicle In Command [View article]
    Ryandan, I think that people who publish their remarks on a message board pro or con often give themselves and the others on the list a lot more credit than they deserve. There is absolutely no way possible for 25 or 30 posters here to move the market up or down in even the smallest company offering stock to the public. I laugh at some of the pennies boards accusing each other of "pump and dump" and the stock moves .00002 at the close on 25 M shares.
    What makes these articles interesting is the various points of view offered by the writers. Whatever their agenda is, is meaningless, and even if it is not, when company trades 40 or 50 M shares a day the entire board is but a spec. I never did understand why posters have to resort to this big offense or big defense of their positions.
    I read them all as I have a significant position in F but no one on a message board will affect my trading in or out of the stock. 95% of the writers here are very knowledgeable I believe, so I say, let the man cut and paste if he wants to as it gives him something to do while maybe learning something himself.
    Have a nice weekend. Mix a martini.

  • Ford: Reaffirming My $20 Price Target Based On Today's Data [View article]
    I subscribed to Cramer for several years and used to think he was right on most of the time and then I began to realize that Cramer wasn't doing any better then me. His portfolio underperformed many of the benchmarks most of the time. I lost money on Cramer and I stayed pretty disciplined with his recommendations. I certainly do not believe that Cramer is any better or worse than some of the other guru's.
    Cramer panning F signals a buy for me. This drop is over done like every other move F has made in the past couple of years. The "investment" research shows positive. World events have a lot more to do with the future of this companies stock price than the flap and flutter we are hearing every time someone writes an article. People like to talk.................for that matter, so do I.

  • Mr. Market Errs In Valuing Ford Motor At 9 Times Earnings [View article]
    Ford constantly lives under the Sword of Damocles. The market panic may be justified if global Armageddon is imminent and based on what is happening globally right now that could very well be the case. The behavior of the stock this morning is indicative of panic selling. Someone on SA recently said that a strong stomach would be necessary to own F. He is right.
    How much of the selling do you suppose is by design today to move the stock price down. Small investors can't do that but institutional investors can and I feel sometimes do which of course will influence the mom and pop investor to follow suit. I do not believe that wishful thinking has an iota of effect. At least, most of the people who post on SA either pro or con have done their own research and applied whatever investing principles they use.
    Personally, I am going to eat a Tums for my own stomach and wait for the evening Martini Hour to further help

  • Ford Motor beats by $0.03, misses on revenue [View news story]
    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.
