    Same nonsense as always.
    Ford makes all its profit off North American operations
    The 7 leading cars in vehicle sales are all foreign
    Ford makes the majority of its profit off one vehicle HENCE
    With a new launch of that vehicle needing to be perfect the stock is down off its high.
    The sock could very well close the year unchanged .
    Same story Ford is only where it is at because of record DOW
    DOW goes down F goes down big DOW goes up Ford recovers a little
    FORD remains a trading stock
    Recent downgrades
    No calls for a new high
    UAW contract coming up
    I myself fail to learn and got trapped again not selling for my profit and buying back a point lower

    I sold a 17.50 and 18 call. It expired. My mistake. Should have known better. I should have sold at 17.50 . Bought back today. Just a trading stock.
    Same old same . Wait till a perfect launch happens for the truck.
    Realize that almost all their profit comes from one vehicle. That 7 of the top selling cars are foreign.
    That GM and C intend to increase incentives on trucks to combat the new Ford. As good as the new truck is money means something/

  • as the profit is minimal. Bottom line FORD has one product the truck. So everything depends on the launch .
    With that said as always I post honestly. I intended to dump 14 thousand shares anywhere around 17.50 .
    I sold the Sept 5 17.50 calls, and 18 calls.
    Ford I knew was going nowhere. But again the rapid decline caught me. Calls expired for profit. Collected my dividend of course on shares. And felt by back below 17 easy play. Did not get called away and then bam stock drops.

    Same bottom line I have said over and over.
    Auto market is mature.
    UAW contract big problem
    Europe has to break even at best but it simply will not drive profits.
    Truck launch has to be perfect , still it is not going to take mkt share. And the profit may fall.
    Stock mkt rally cannot go on forever and Ford long ago needed to top 20 .
    FORD REMAINS FAIRLY VALUED 16 to 17.50 and is best used as a trading stock especially around dividend time

    ALL THE ABOVE MEANS little to Mo ,lil muffin etc as they hold 100 shares if that.
