Over and Out
Mulally gets it right. In 1971 while employed by Ford as a research and development engineer in the aerospace division invented the Blind Spot Information Sensor with a coworker. A patent search was made by the Ford patent department which showed the idea was patentable. The patent department chose not to apply for the patent. The reason given was that the cost would not justify the information it provided. The cost at that time was estimated at $10.00 The devices are now available on the Volvo, Taurus and other cars. The implementation of the system in exactly the same as we proposed 39 years ago. It is my opinion that Ford was fearful at the time of lawsuits that could be blamed on the BLIS which would offset any profit to be made.
press release at my borker was issued in the last half hour:
"Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) will release its preliminary 2010 first quarter financial results at 7 a.m. EDT, Tuesday, April 27. The following briefings will be held after the announcement:
At 9 a.m. EDT, Alan Mulally, Ford president and CEO, and Lewis Booth, Ford executive vice president and chief financial officer, will host a conference call for the investment community and news media to discuss 2010 first quarter results."
I'm glad that somebody else recognizes the low volume. Traditionally that is a precurser to a DOWNSIZE of the price. Not a bad idea to sell some of your F the day before earnings or sooner yet. To be sure hold a core amount be cause F will go higher down the road. (no pun intended.) To be sure, many traders will be bailing out on or just before earnings, that ALWAYS happens. People are very nervous about this market. Remember, we're seeing low volume in a stock that has had much higher volume. Fair warning. "Sell in May and go away."
