  • Finally Sold On Ford [View article]

    Sounds great....I do hope management and the unions in Europe can come together. It definitely needs to be done, the unions there definitely need to take concessions.

  • Ford Trounces The Competition When It Comes To Brand Loyalty [View article]
    Midas1....Sounds like you have never owned anything but Toyota and the only experience you have had with an American brand was a rental. I have owned Toyota and Honda as well as GM and Ford. I have found Ford to be as good or better than most, and it is all American. I have a 1995 Windstar ( I love it) a 2003 Explorer ( I love it) and I am in the process to buy a 2013 Escape. I am and will be long F.

  • Consumers bought 1.2M new automobiles (+4.3% Y/Y, +15% M/M) in the U.S. during February, according to analysts. Though it's an excellent sign that average transaction prices rose and the level of incentives in the industry were moderate, inventory levels will be watched closely to ensure automakers aren't getting too far in front of demand. Of the pack, Ford (F) is forecast to have the largest yearly jump in sales for the month with Chrysler (FIATY.PK), Toyota (TM) and General Motors (GM) also strong - while Honda (HMC) and Nissan (NSANY.OB) are likely to report a decline in sales. [View news story]
    I must admit to being naive and ignorant of the stock market. I just don't understand how F can have so much going these last couple years or so and the market reacts negatively, especially these last few weeks.

    Why is it when a company is doing good it's great management, and when it is not doing good it's the union's fault? Go F....long....long...long.

  • Bank of America thinks the U.S. automobile sector could be set to kick into a higher gear even after posting a solid 13.4% gain in sales last year. Analysts with the firm lean on the demand issue of an aging U.S. fleet in making their bullish call, noting consumer buying to replace high-mileage vehicles should stay strong until 2018 before softening. [View news story]
    As sad as it may seem, I have to agree with you. It looks like a certain group just cannot come to terms with the fact that the economy is improving. I am long F.

  • Ford (F) says it will make a dollar-for-dollar match up to $750K for dealers that make investments to renovate their dealerships. While dealers polled at an industry convention were positive about the program, they are less than enthusiastic about Ford's push to make dealers more uniform in appearance. The company didn't disclose how much it expects to spend on the program. [View news story]
    Doesn't sound like a bad deal. I have seen some that could really use some up-grading.
