  • when the DOW corrects. All these calls for the quick rise to 20 are so foolish. I meant to post this last week .But in reality one only needs to read any of my posts from this year.
    We basically are up because of the record DOW or we would be around 15.50.
    It will take all that I posted before for F to hit 20.
    And now we wait on the insanity of the UAW the raises will come , Ford can ill afford them.
    One hiccup and down we go.
    Again I hold for more rise before the end.

    UAW To Automakers "No More Concessions"!

    Oh that is funny. They are not competitive now. So any elimination in the two tier system will make them less profitable.
    This is exactly what I predicted several years ago.
    A REPEAT OF WHAT GOT THEM IN TROUBLE BEFORE ENDLESS HIGH LABOR COSTS.
    In Michigan even State workers no longer get pensions .
    "good incentive for the workers to perform to the best of their abilities "
    WHAT A JOKE they are paid to do their job. Paying a bonus does nothing to increase productivity or lower production costs .
    The only time a bonus works is in sales , where if extra effort and time beyond the norm results in extra sales .

    More MO delusional postings on UAW contract this moron does not get it
    UAW will be given into and the usual profit slide will start.

  • informationlouisgreen informationlouisgreen Jun 7, 2014 4:28 PM Flag

    And you think with the upcoming UAW contract Fords bottom line will survive ?

  • Did you read what they want , end to two tier wage which is what is barely keeping Ford competitive. RAISES, more $$$$ everything.
    Simply not sustainable.
    As I told you Ford has one more run left.
    But new contract will start the death process.
    Next contract combined with the usual recession , end of years of selling near record cars
    Will begin the death process.
    NOTHING WAS LEARNED FROM NEAR BANKRUPCY AT FORD
    NOTHING WAS LEARNED FRAOM THE C AND GM BANKRUPCY

    Could you please point out the lie ?
    What questions would you like me to ask the Ford worker ?
    Dealing with lying UAW idiots here is exactly why the Big 3 failed you cannot add 2 and 2 and get 4.

  • informationlouisgreen informationlouisgreen May 15, 2014 11:49 PM Flag

    WOW. Its like talking to the wall. Your correct I cannot do it . But I can find thousands of people with some training who can and would do it for 50k a year.
    Do you think my friend could do it when she graduated high school ? But I know a National Guard mechanic who could learn fast and would love to do it .
    If the Government had let the Big 3 go belly up and start over we would have a sustainable auto industry. I bet my attorney wife could learn the skilled trade job in no time. I doubt 1 in 100 skilled trades could learn her job. The same for my brother a physician, graduate engineer.. My brother and sister in law GM engineers Guarantee they could learn and do the job. 1 in maybe 100 skilled trade could learn their job. If that.
    That's not denigrating anyone. I AM UNION. But it is the truth. The wages being paid are not sustainable. The proof well look at what happened a few years ago.

  • informationlouisgreen informationlouisgreen May 15, 2014 10:01 AM Flag

    You totally missed the point. How can we continue to pay someone these type of wages ?
    What lessons did we learn from the bankruptcy's and Ford near BK ?
    I could see 55 for a highly skilled worker tops. And a pension eliminated.

  • Mo paraphrased
    I bought Ford heavy in 2009 because I know the auto motive industry. Really Mo so why did nt you short Ford when it was 32 all the way down. Did you buy it and sell it at 50 ? Why if you know so much would you buy the stock ? Why did nt you take your fortune and buy calls and make millions and millions ?
    I INVESTED IN F AT 4
    DUH YOU GAMBLED ON FORD AND NOBODY would argue that
    By the way why did nt you short GM at 55 since you knew F would go straight up you did nt know GM was going BK ?

  • then just hangs out unless something breaks. This is simply not sustainable. Give it time and you will see what happens again.

    You most certainly did state Ford will go up or down based on macro economic trends in response to asking for you to state a price range. In fact you have brought nothing but RAH RAH to the board.
    What's more bizarre is you have an imaginary enemy named HOMER which you seem to think is the majority of posters here.
    AS stated my profit on Ford when I sold was 80k plus covered calls and dividends. I know that this exceeds your imagination as you live on Social Security checks paid to the insane asylum. This was in my IRA accounts. I hold 2k shares of Ford as always I post profit and loss been in the hole on that forever currently about 2k . Although this does not account for all the profit over the years on naked puts which you would never have the equity to do . Or covered calls.
    Back during the crash I did take a considerable loss on 30 thousand yes 30k shares of Ford. I defy you to go through the history and find one of my posts that varies on my positions.
    My wife earns around 150k plus nice match on 401 and other benefits . I earn between 103 and 125 k Look up G scale . House paid for , 401 loaded . Anytime you want to meet and compare portfolios I am ready .

    Ask and answered numorous times in posts. Oh very cheerleader one . Back to mutual funds for you . Good thing you are not here for the money LOL! Or as your partner would say Ford may be up or down depending on macro or micro economic trends.
    Or has you might say Warren Buffet never sells a stock . Oh really better check out some of his sales.

    Plus we all can read . You simply pasted something we all read. Tell us what it means and stand by it 3 months from now ,like I do . tell us what it will take before F is profitable in Europe state when . Or be like Mo Ford will go up or down depending on macro or micro economic condtions. Read my years of posts Ford is right where I called it 2 years ago , last year and heading to June I doubted F would break at best 16 s and here are.

    Ford Sales up for an 11th straight month and beating the industry average sales growth of 4.2 per cent Ford also gained market share.

    Barney you are simply and old man out of his league when attemting to discuss postings with me . Stick to the ones who make fun of you here. Speaking of which I think you may hold the record for thumbs down.
    NEVER DID I SAY FORD ONLY MAKES $ on trucks. I pointed out several times what others have that Ford remains priced the way it is because it derives the majority of profits from North America and truck sales. This is why everyone is so focused on the new truck launch. YOU ARE CORRECT sales may begin a turn around. Then again Ford sold millions of cars and lost money before. THE MAJOR point is we have been waiting years for Europe to turn around . So the uptick in sales with out many quarters of increases and more importently profit is meaningless for discussion here. Other then your RAH RAH post. YOUR STATEMENT about I am not here to make money was so silly I no longer give you the benifit of the doubt I once did. You are simply and old guy RAH RAHing.

    You just don't get it . 11 straight months $ losses. I know increasing sales have to happen. But it is nothing to cheer about. We need a net profit. And the kicker is the European economy . And hiccup and we swing to big losses again. That is why Ford trades where it does. Again we wait for 2015 . But if the DOW tanks or corrects Ford will remain below 17 or less in 2015 .

  • Of course that was before I understood Mo was housed in an insane asylum.

  • it is trading at fair value.
    Read prior posts
    Briefly Ford must fire on all cylinders to move up and then we are not talking big move .
    Europe needs to show major improvement possibly at this point break even cause Street know how quickly losses can return.
    Profit must remain Ford has warned already .
    Sales in America the only driver of profits must do more then maintain
    The new truck will need strong sales Truck is Fords only real profit
    Economy which drives truck sales
    Buy back or dividend increase Slappies here think that will drive stock up NOPE maybe a week . Ford is in to cynical an industry . Losses can mount overnight and the dividend can be cut quickly.
    Not that I would mind a dividend increase.
    As always I am bozothestockbroker been here since circa 2000 calling out the Mo s lil muffins and UAW shills
    Nailed every move on Ford read my history . Not saying I am all knowing many mistakes just have hit Ford everytime. Less
