With commodities like steel,aluminum and copper so low the profit margins for autos should be even higher.. Your statement is true. But, the whole auto sector is down regardless of profit and the companies do not move (stock price) separate from each other no matter what they announce.. The whole sector moves in conjunction. Like the VW fiasco had nothing to do with F and Ford is going down with them.. So is GM.. It's crazy.. Does the market consider autos a commodity?
Good post. Superimpose GM on top of Ford and the ups and downs are eerily similar on a 1 year chart.
The disinterest in buying present with Ford is ALSO with GM. If you superimpose a 6 month graph of daily stock price of GM on top of Ford it's crazy how parallel they ran.. When one went up or down so did the other. So it's basically the US auto industry.. Who knows maybe more interest after the UAW contract is ratified, (without a strike), interest will come back..
Yeah, I know 120 people that won't be trying out anything due to chevrolet's innovative defect cover ups!
Nice come back! Well at least Ford didn't kill over 120 people by covering up defects like the other welfare backed auto maker did.. (You know GM.)
Let me guess, words from the unemployed who probably can't afford to buy stock . Probably got fired from Ford for a failing a drug test. (Or are ya all one guy,) Get a job.
Thanks for the intelligent observation.. What is your motive? To warn us about this awful investment we have made. You must be a really nice guy to stick around the ole Ford board and warn everybody? Maybe I better sell after hours on that analysis of yours.. So give me a good alternative stock.. Are you the same guy as that big bigkahuna dude? Man, I think you're really getting us investors nervous with this 100 year old company that survived the greatest recession since depression, while others went on welfare.. Yeah I think I'm gonna sell, Thanks again.
Please give us a tech stock that is price equivalent to Ford, does not cycle with the Dow and or the economy, (consistent) and pays a dividend...
Look at the 2 year stock price graph.. Ford cycles in wide ranges.. As a example,what was the big catastrophe back in Oct 14 when it was 13.30, (China sales) only to go back up to 16.00 in Dec.. I could go on and on. History dictates this as a nice buying opportunity. This will be at least back to it's 200 day average after a contract is ratified. Just an opinion.
