    If Mazda was still in partners with Ford the Mazda5 would probably received the top award as well.

    Agree! The great majority of news for Ford is very good and the vast majority of analysts are upgrading their views on Ford. Revenues were expected to decline somewhat this year because of the costs involved with rolling out the new F150 as well as the costs involved with the new launches. The new launches are meeting consumer demands and while they might have a few short term negatives to the bottom line they will enhance Ford's long term success. New launches also brings with it reduced sales which Ford seems to be holding their own on. Let the analysts say what they want, good or bad, while Ford steadily continues with its One Ford plan which has continually been developing them into a global winner.

    New F150

    Keep up the good work jeff. You and your peers are a hands on part of a revolutionary concept in the auto industry. I know this is not the first use of aluminum in the auto industry but it is for something on a grand scale such as this and also as critical to Ford's success as it is moving forward.

    Thankfully, Mulally also defied Wall Street many times by doing what was best for Ford long term rather than the bottom line short term. That huge profit potential is a nice thing in our favor.

    I have read articles stating GM plans to go to an aluminum body but they are around 3 years behind Ford. Statistics I have seen show that approximately 20% of the truck market is up for grabs which equates to a sizable number of buyers and profits that go along with that 20%. If all goes well with the launch and the mileage is decently improved, Ford has a good shot of picking up even more of the market share.

    New price target is $22 with the upgrade today

    Saw that upgrade from Stifel this morning. As long as the F150 launch continues as planned Ford should see more upgrades along the way. Concerns many analysts had in regards to the sales being affected by all their new launches are not happening and with an improved cash flow Ford is looking better every day.

    Good to see you back posting Shaggy. That ladder is being climbed slowly but surely. Given the recent pullback, Ford held its own fairly well. I had read an article a while back stating investors do not like the car manufacturers too much because of their massive fixed costs of doing business but it went on to mention Ford's position is better than most because of its cash flow and positive actions to limit the pension liabilities that will result in an improved cash flow. Incorporating Ford's positions in emerging markets and strength with its growth potential in China makes Ford a very attractive company and stock. The writer went on to say Ford could easily sustain doubling its dividend. I doubt whether Ford would double its dividend without a substantial increase in its stock price but I do agree with the analysts position of Ford's strength. I still feel many investors are waiting to see how the new F150 launch will go. If a great launch takes place and orders are streaming in, I can see the stock price advancing at a more rapid pace than it has been. Hopefully things in the world scene will settle down a bit so markets aren't so jittery.

    ford rise after hours

    Knowing Yahoo they probably have the decimal in the wrong place and the rise is .015 instead of 0.15 although I will agree with you that it is about time. Good news all the time has to have a positive affect at some point. Even with the stock price gaining almost 10% this year, given all the positives the stock price should be higher.

    It might do your heart and mind some good to not focus on daily changes but year to date numbers. GM is down 18.25% YTD whereas Ford is up 9.72% YTD.

    The last official comment I read about the production schedule was from Joe Hinrichs and he said everything was on schedule. There is no other evidence to date to make us think otherwise.

    July car sales up

    Ford cannot move the stock price. It will move when investors move it. As shareholders, employees and retirees we should be extremely pleased with their fundamentals constantly getting stronger. Ford is doing all they can and more. The rest is up to investors. Given their strength in sales, even with all the new launches, is great news. One of the concerns was a drop off in sales which to date hasn't happened. I will agree that the share price is frustrating but the most important statistics for Ford is not share price but what they are doing in the market place against fierce competition.

    If you throw into the mix all the positive moves Ford is making to prepare for the future with new launches, R&D, positioning themselves in emerging markets, etc., the when will continue for quite some time.

    2015 F-150 pricing

    lovelincolns lovelincolns Jul 28, 2014 11:15 AM Flag

    I would imagine the majority of working trucks purchased are the base models in which those increases could easily be made up with the improved gas mileage due to the weight reduction. The article I read stated that much of the King Ranch and Platinum models price increases are due to standard high tech features such as LED head and tail lights and blind spot lane departure warning systems. The benefits of the aluminum body far outweigh the modest price increases of the base models and will be made up rather quickly.

    den - you do have a passion for motorcycles! Let's take one step at a time and be most concerned with the F150 launch. Actually the Mustang launch is also a big one that will hopefully give the Mustang a nice boost in sales.

    Thanks Q. The more engine options Ford has the more customer needs they will meet resulting in better sales.

    Truck buyers intrigued by aluminum body

    My brother-in-law plans to replace his F150 next year and he told me, when I had asked him, the aluminum body would not affect his purchase at all. He likes the write ups he has been reading pertaining to the benefits of the aluminum.
