F-150 is a very good product (I own two newer ones in the business), but like many business owners have already upgraded -- next purchases are 3-5 years down the road. Lincolns are doing well in China, not so much here in the US. The North American market (Ford's largest market) is a toss up --- competition is really picking up in the truck category -- I actually purchased a Ram Truck (for personal use) recently based on industry reviews -- GM, Ford, and Ram are all the equals of one another, so that category will be coming under additional margin pressure for Ford.
The looming problem is China has over 70 car companies already and plans on displacing Ford domestically --- they steal everything then carbon copy it --- "great" business model but devastating to car companies like Ford.
Ford has very little future in China longer term.
Nice dividend, but market and macro forces are working against any long positions right now. I've been in cash for some time. Downside rise on F (based on technicals) appears to be high single digits (which many analysts say may come sooner rather than later). Several note that 2017 sales will be even lower than 2016's based on increased Chinese and Japanese competition (BOJ just devalued the Yen again yesterday) which will erode Ford's market position even further.
Her campaign now has the audacity to state today that the government is "over-classifying" her emails.
Hello --- last time I checked it is the government itself that has sole classification responsibility.
Did these Clinton campaign staff just arrive here from some other planet or something??
FBI is staffed with intelligent, hard working professionals -- outstanding caliber, fine Americans (I know many of them).
We owe them for defending this country -- especially when you see the Reckless, Sloppy, Irresponsible CONSTANT criminal acts of Hillary Clinton --- she's a major threat to our security and I'm glad the FBI is taking action.
Her cavalier criminal behavior has done grave damage to the United States.
I wouldn't worry about him "resigning" --- not happening. The real problem Irresponsible / Reckless/ Sloppy Hillary Clinton has is if the indictment process goes "non-public" for an extended period, you can bet a handful of FBI agents will leak information to the House Intel Committee, others.
The "air time" associated with even those leaks will sink Hillary's boat.
This Obama Administration is rife with graft and corruption.
If you do even a cursory comparison, there is no comparison --- worst loss of US Classified Information in history
My team (Green Bay) stumbled this year, but look out next year with two new offensive lineman-- Super Bowl contenders (EASY)
Matthew Stafford (Detroit) is considered by many scouts to have the strongest arm in the NFL based on velocity, but Cam has the rare ability to launch "rockets" when he isn't even "set"...............incredible athlete
He's a little shorter than me, weighs more and does things (e.g. throwing the ball off one foot, all arm) we never even thought possible--- I played football in the NCAA and the level of athleticism grows every year
Cam is an incredible athlete.
I believe this person is a retired Ford employee, liberal who has spent the better part of the last five years EVERY DAY on this board. He is one totally ef'd up doode --- angry old bigoted racist (from what I've gathered in his postings).
The extent of funds the Clinton Foundation has taken from countries that directly abuse, subjugate women is, in a word, STAGGERING
She's horribly sloppy --- frankly has shown a pattern of irresponsibility unmatched in recent memory.
Extensive "cut and paste" on her part of classified information into unclassified emails ---clear paper trail.
39 "cut and paste" operations = 39 felony counts (and that's just one of over 20 statutes, laws, regulations currently being investigated)
They're actually quite a few months behind the actual FBI criminal investigation. The mess is far worse than what's being reported in the press.
Her sloppy, irresponsible and cavalier behavior has done permanent and grave damage to our nation's secrets.
I've read your nonsense hamaichi_01 and let me be blunt --- you know little, if anything, about the government.
Spend a month or two reading up on HOW the govt actually works --- you're not even close (based on your postings)
Man -- for someone who promotes large (useless) government, he doesn't even understand the basics how it works.
Hey knuckle--head: It wasn''t connected to the "world internet" ................Lockheed's classified runs over SIPRNET, JWICS (depending on classification)
Again hamaichi_01 ----I strongly encourage you to do remedial reading before posting garbage--- you're totally clueless doode
