Ford Stock: Risk Factors To Consider

Mar. 31, 2023 9:50 AM ETFord Motor Company (F)19 Comments


  • Our positive outlook on Ford Motor Company's stock remains intact. However, given recent concerns regarding a contagious banking crisis, we felt the need to highlight a few of the company's primary risks.
  • In our view, worries about Ford's fiscal loss are overcooked. Most of the firm's misfortunes were due to non-core events such as impairments, marketable security losses, and abnormal inflation.
  • Nonetheless, the company's financial statements reveal a few critical concerns relating to a receivables build-up, increasing credit allowances, and high short-term borrowing.
  • Macroeconomic features such as inverted yield curves and rising credit spreads remain of great concern.
  • We think Ford Motor Company stock remains in good shape. However, we recognize that the stock's general risk framework is intensifying.
