This could be a mover to push the price to $17. Hopefully it won't be a bummer. In a few days China and Europe sales will be out and be, just , if not more, important.
If Ford follows through with it's guidance and earns 2.5B more than last year, then yes, it will go up.
Yes, and if by some stroke of luck, or genius, Ford can convince the Chinese that driving a Lincoln will set them apart from all their Benz and Beamer driving bretheren the stock will soar. With the type of Lincoln dealerships Ford is opening in China I believe that is what they are hoping for. After all the higher the price of a vehicle is the more margin is in it. Ford seems to sell alot of low margin vehicles with the company's margin at only 2.2%.
