If I read this correctly the plant makes hybrids and electric cars. The bloom is off both of those. Low gas prices for some time ahead. So why not shut down unneeded capacity?
Pencil it out. At two buck gas, they'll never get their money's worth.
Consumers Reports is a pro communist rag in my opinion. It gives high ratings to most foreign cars for political reasons. Sheep are easy to fool!
LOL, you really think ANYTHING posted here will make the stock go up or down? You mean 80% of stock holders are reading this???
Look at YOUR username!!! LOL!!!!!!!! I'll bet your wife and kids are really proud.
Hey BStaurrey (aka Questinator), You do realize that your lies about Toyota DO NOT erase Fords $119 Billion dollars of debt.
The handles work fine, it is the latch that has the problem. Difficult, eh?
There is no reason for this to happen. Ford has made door latches for over 100 years. This is one of those things that should be perfected.
Let's all listen, and heed, the intellectual observations, mature statements, and linguistically articulated wisdom of someone who chose the fine, upstanding, and confidence inspiring username of "hershey_highway_democrats."
Thank you for the laugh!! I needed that. Now, to the ignore list, with the rest of your aliases. Here's a hint......don't post with the same phrases and vocabulary that you use on all your other aliases. ;)
I'm glad I am not the only guy who was floored by his article. I actually wrote to him for his source of information. I checked out BayRidge Ford in Brooklyn and found the discount he mentioned, only on the XLT, only with the selection of a specific option, and only if financed through Ford Motor Credit to get the discount he is talking about. I mentioned that New York City is not a premier market for the F-150 and when people think of the City they don't think "Land of the Pick-up Trucks."
When he wrote back he was not able to give me any other locations. I wrote him again telling him I would expect he would have his sources handy (he just published the article today) and surely he did not write such a statement based on only one location.
"2 Factors Driving Ford Motor Company's Surge in Its Troubled Europe Region"
More positive news on Ford's rebound in Europe. From the article -
With all that said, Ford "only" expects to lose $250 million in Europe this year and the sales results from the first quarter leave investors reasons to be optimistic..Ford sold more than 335,000 vehicles in Europe through the first three months of 2015 which was a 12.5% gain over last year, and ahead of the overall industry's 9% growth...Another factor that many overlooked when glancing at the numbers is that Ford's retail and fleet sales channels generated 73% of Ford's passenger car sales in Europe for the first quarter. That's 400 basis points, or 4 percentage points, above the industry average.
"Will Ford (F) Miss Q1 Earnings on Regional Weaknesses?"
Ok, so, will it rain on Tuesday? Let's guess.
"Ford Probe 2.2L Used Engines Added to Sale Priced Inventory at Powertrain Company Website"
I don't know why you think what some guys are doing with used Ford Probe engines has anything to do with the Ford Motor Company?
"Suddenly, Ford Offers Big Discounts on New F-Series Pickups"
The author found a dealership in New York City, not a premier market for the F-150, where there are discounts for specific customer choices, only on the XLT truck, where there is a larger discount than the national discount of only $1,000, according to realcartipsDOTcom. I wrote to him asking where else, other than this one place, is Ford offering this discount. The author wrote back and was not able to tell me. So much for research, and integrity, in Journalism.
Why did you repeat articles 2 to 4 times? Trying to make it look like a long list? The awards the F-150 has won is a long list. Repeating the same news is desperation.
This is going to be fun. Really? You make it this easy?
"Ford recalls 390,000 cars to fix faulty door latches"
I read this today. This kind of stuff really ticks me off. They've been making door latches for over 100 years. There is no reason for this.
"Ford Motor Company's 2015 F-150 Is Practically Running Out of Trophy Space"

Just remembered you had this alias again? You haven't used this one since November 2. I thought I had it on ignore. Must be another similar one.
Keep playing games, since you can't demonstrate any real credibility. I'll put this one on ignore with your other aliases.
His mom died and willed the Taurus to him when his Ford Focus completely died. His dad willed the Ford Focus to him when his dad died. He constantly complained about never ending repairs on the Ford Focus. After never ending repairs on the Ford Taurus at great expense he desperately wanted to get rid of it and read Consumer Reports and saw that Buick Regal was a 2015 Top pick so he traded in his unreliable Taurus piece of junk for a Regal and has been happy ever since.
Why was Harold driving a POS Ford Taurus?
Maybe Bruce is thinking that if he is convicted of manslaughter he dont want to be in a jail cell with bubba and if he converts to a woman ahead of time he will be the bubba in a womans prison.
Who is Rene Richards? Isn't there a tennis player who was a man that got converted to a woman???
People at work have been replacing their old cars like crazy. One coworker replaced his BMW 325i with a 2015 Audi A6 because Consumer Reports had it as a 2015 top pick. Old Harold replaced his ugly Ford Taurus with a Buick Regal after he read Consumer Reports and saw that the Regal was a 2015 top pick. After reading Consumer Reports Cheryl replaced her Honda Oddysey with a 2015 model (it was a Consumer Reports 2015 top pick). Tom replaced his Honda Accord with a Tesla Model S because it was a 2015 Consumer Reports top pick for 2015.
A coworker just replaced their high mileage (469,000 miles) Toyota Corolla with a 2015 Suburu Forrester because she wanted a small SUV and the Forrester was a 2015 Consumer Reports top pick for small SUV. She was sad to part with the Corrolla which was extremely reliable and was still running good at 469,000 miles but she wanted an SUV that was a Consumer Report top pick. Her Corolla was a Consumer Report top pick when she bought it.
