June auto sales, to be released today, likely will be level with or slightly better than May, but Ford's (F) top sales analyst predicts sales rates will rise after June through year-end. "There are some indications that May and June could be the slowest sales rates of the year, [but] at some point in the second half, we’ll return to a sales rate of the first half or better."
