there is a f/ws or f-wt warrant that is going to spring to life in the next 45 days. Now selling for 2.09 it is exercisable at about $ 9.01 until 12/24/12.
one little whisper about increase of Ford's .05 dividend to say .07 or say .075 per quarter will make stock fly. This warrant trades dollar for dollar with the stock. Ford wants the $ 9.00 x 400,000,000
warrants outstanding to be converted. Resultant $ 3.6 BB more in cash in their coffers. They are cash crazy. If the stock flaggs, look for them to hype it ( dividend talk or a real dividend increase)
The .05 is surely too low its a joke for one of the oldest companies in the world.
Watch it happen, lots of sharpies have been selling short and have artificaially depressed the stock and the warrants. This is spring loaded, these beauties - (speculators stock houses and short sellers ) now hold lots of F and F/WS and are ready to go crazy to the upside. What more conservative investment could you buy if you were a mutual fund ?
Besides $ 1.92 earnings looks like a 5.5 x income investment. If S&P puts a fifth star on it Katy bar the door
Sentiment: Strong Buy
