    The problem is you are buying at the tail end of the automotive buying binge.
    Europe still the unknown is a big factor.
    And at a record UAW contract with elimination of the Second Tier and wages got us here in the first place.
    understand Ford always sells enough vehicles they just don`t make profit
    Bottom line
    They managed too
    Sell 3 million vehicles in 3 years and lose
    30 BILLION DOLLARS

    Yes, same thing they said about GM at 50 , 40 , 17 and then ___.
    Ford same thing at not that long ago at 15 , 14 , 13 , 12, 11, 9, 8 , 7

    .
    The greatest
    existent risk
    to shareholders
    without question
    would be a dividend
    cut. That would be
    catotsrosophic to
    the share price.

    DUH and why did you even waste space stating the above ?

    In
    the event it does not,
    the current dividend
    payout of 60 cents
    annually can easily
    be sustained through
    fiscal 2016. L
    ONCE AGAIN STATING THE OBVIOUS
    TIME FOR YOU TO POST YOUR FAMOUS
    FORD MAY GO UP FORD MAY GO DOWN POST

  • lower profit margins . Increasing incentive spending . Lower vehicle sales.
    I warned everyone that a final run up was getting doubtful , now we know.
    Ford is in the danger zone.
    Any missteps and this is a single digit stock.
    great news and what maybe we get up to 18 ONE MORE TIME before the end ?

  • informationlouisgreen informationlouisgreen Jan 13, 2016 4:48 PM Flag

    Dividend is sustainable for now. At least through the first half of 2017 .Barring any surprises in Europe .
    At that point ever increasing completion for slowing vehicle sales will cause profit margins to decline.
    Add the outrageous labor costs now going full force and watch out 2018

  • informationlouisgreen informationlouisgreen Jan 13, 2016 4:44 PM Flag

    Mo
    telling us the last 5 years how Ford would be 20 and above soon .
    how the 150 would drive profits through the roof.
    how the UAW contract would not IMPACT THE STOCK PRICE
    And on and on and on
    WRONG as always the mighty Mo
    UAW SHILL yesterday, today and tommorrow

  • not have your interests at heart. They do not own the stock nor do they care if the company goes under as long as someone pays [the US taxpayer] their pension.
    As the UAW President once said we do not buy the stock because we DO NOT WANT THE UAW MEMBER TO THINK LIKE AND INVESTOR
    I hope we can get out of this before the bankrupcy or years of declining profits.
    IF and this a BIG IF
    Ford survives this next downturn the UAW will have to be defeated once and for all
    That will be the time to buy

  • informationlouisgreen by informationlouisgreen Jan 7, 2016 1:30 PM Flag

    WHILE I have been spot on since 2001 on this stock. I did tell everyone FORD would have a final run up before bankrupcy or and extended period of losing money and lower profits .

    I did preface this with it had to happen before the UAW contact .

    Prior to this I did make a disclaimer saying I have my doubts I stated

    Ford would cave to UAW
    UAW would hammer Ford
    The aluminum 150 would do nothing for the stock price , at best it would not hurt it
    Ford failed to hit 20 in the bull mkt and 18 may have been the top
    I ALWAYS TOLD YOU DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO AND FORD WAS A RISKY PLAY
    I AM NO LONGER CONFIDENT FORD WILL HAVE A FINAL RUN UP , I did state this Jan through June 2015
    BASED ON Sales will eventually decline
    Still unknown about Europe
    China is a myth
    UAW , UAW, UAW , UAW with no raises/bonus and a Third Tier F would have been 20 bucks

    Repasted from 11 -15
    As usual the comedy of you Mo and the other UAW shills never stops.
    How much of the 18 million CAR sales did Ford capture ?
    7 of the top 7 cars are foreign,
    The jauggernut will continue,
    Hunydi is entering the lux mkt , what share can Lincoln afford to lose.
    Without a Third Tier the US auto is sunk

    You sound a lot like Questionater which you have been accused of being. The stock is &((*OO no it is not . It is trading right where it shoud be as I have said for years.
    Until you control costs in a commodity product there is a strong possibilty [and it will happen with F that the bottom will fall out ] . This is not 1965 I never hear anyone say OMG I need a Lincoln, oh wow cannot wait to get a new Fushion. The Taurus [great car but for who "] cannot compete against the 300 even with my F discount . Ford dealers claim as did C that every 300 sold Fiat was losing $$$ do I care nope.

    Are you kidding me ? Please post the fact to back our argument. 7 of the top 7 selling cars are foreign.
    Lincoln sells how many cars compared to Audi, BMW ? Clue me please how many cars did Toyota sell ?
    Ford is basically a truck company with SUV . Problem with that is if Toyota every starts getting the truck mkt which they will based on the aging demographic of white males the main buyer of F 150 watch ot.

  • They had to sign the UAW deal to buy time to offshore everything and anything to MX.
    Reading about Trump speech I wonder if Ford is smarter than I thought and is preparing to downsize the UAW by next contract say 20 k jobs .
    That would save the company .

    Sure is a con man who walked away with millions and millions . And did basically nothing . In fact he was primarily hired to bring the UAW in line which was his claim to fame at Boeing. He did streamline operations . But as someone said a monkey could have done that , it took the Fed to step in and demand wage cuts at GM for the bailout . A 4 k incentive and a low cost loan to Ford. And what do we have a 14 buck stock.

    PS much the same as the open container law. In every State you could actually drink and drive until you reached the legal limit. Then came you could drink as long as you were not driving. Without checking but guessing almost every State now prohibits and open contaner in the car . This was forced through Federal highway funds.

    Drinking and driving will still be prohibited as you will always have a manual overide. At least for the next 50 years.

    Stick to mutual funds . Ford is not going to 40 . Any revenue from this deal is 10 to 15 years off.

    Oh please any profit from this type of deal is 5 , 10 ,15 years off. And will cost money in the short term.
    Ford was due for a pop GM was up 1. something. Ford is a 14 buck stock,
    The expectation was for a reasonable UAW contract it never came in fact a nightmare came instead.
    You yourself once posted I plan to be out of F long before a ew UAW contract s inked.
    This is it , the next 6 months maybe end of year a final run happens or we march to single digets .
    Eventually losses will occur and that will be that , there simply is not room for 3 American [if you count Fiat ] auto companies. And the reality is there is no need.
    Everyday Americans switch to foreign cars. The only thing keeping Ford afloat is the 150 primarily .
    At best the record sales 17 million kept Ford hanging around.
    The contract spelled the death .
