Yahoo Finance's Seana Smith, Andy Serwer, and Jen Rogers sit down to discuss Tesla CEO Elon Musk's emotional interview with the New York Times.
Ford is working on several initiatives to boost profit and cash flow, enabling the company to sustain its high dividend. They would all have to fail for Ford's dividend to be in jeopardy.
Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk, responding to Uber Technologies Inc. board member Arianna Huffington urging him to change the way he works, ruled out taking a different approach. Ford & Tesla are the only 2 American car companies to avoid bankruptcy.
Car makers are collecting massive amounts of data from the latest cars on the road. With millions of cars rolling off dealer lots with built-in connectivity, auto companies are gaining access to unprecedented amounts of real-time data that allow them to track everything from where a car is located to how hard it is braking and whether or not the windshield wipers are on. The data is generated by the car’s onboard sensors and computers, and then stored by the auto maker in cloud-based servers.
Currently, it appears that one of the worst calls I’ve made here at InvestorPlace was telling you to buy Ford (NYSE:F). If you feel badly about it, I feel worse, because I did indeed buy Ford stock. Ford made a profit of $1.06 billion on those sales, enough to pay the 15-cent-per-share dividend with room to spare.
Ford is helping to fund research for juvenile diabetes in one big (and very blue) kind of way. The automaker is auctioning a one-of-a-kind Mustang Bullitt, featuring a custom Kona Blue paint job and its own unique set of grey alloy wheels. Each auction ticket is only $10 apiece, and 60,000 tickets will be sold in total.
Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk was interviewed by the New York Times on August 16. In the candid interview, Musk answered a variety of questions that have been puzzling Tesla investors since he tweeted on August 7 that he’s “considering taking Tesla private at $420.
On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Senior Editor Jeremy Korzeniewski and Associate Editor Joel Stocksdale. We discuss the just revealed 2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet drag car, along with our driving impressions of the 2019 Chevy Silverado and the 2018 Subaru BRZ tS.
One of the more famous Shelby Mustang sports cars is the GT350H, a version of the classic Shelby GT350 that was rented out by Hertz in the 1960s. Shelby revived the idea in the mid-2000s with the Shelby GT-H, and the consumer-ready Shelby GT. The nameplate is back again the the 2019 Shelby GT, and while it's not available to rent this time, you can still get it with the signature gold stripes.
Can America Be Great Again without a Strong Auto Industry? In the previous part of this series, we discussed how President Donald Trump has criticized automakers (XLY) for moving their production outside the US. To avoid being on Trump’s hit list, many companies such as Ford (F), General Motors (GM), and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) have highlighted plans to increase their investments in the US.
General Motors (GM) has had a tough year, and things might not get much easier in the near future. Where we were: GM has struggled this year, hurt by concerns about tariffs. Where we're headed: Trade tensions aren't the only issue GM's China joint venture faces, but the shares have gotten low enough that they're still worth the risk, says Morgan Stanley.
In the previous part of this series, we explored how Wall Street analysts are rating the top two US auto giants, General Motors (GM) and Ford (F). Currently, a higher percentage of Wall Street analysts favor a “buy” on GM stock, and analysts believe it has higher upside potential as compared to Ford stock. Note that General Motors (GM) stopped reporting its monthly sales data in March. The actual numbers for US auto sales in the second quarter are expected to be released in the first week of July after GM reveals its sales numbers for the quarter. In H1 2018, GM’s US sales rose 4. ...
If there's anything that proves Detroit's motor-oil-in-the-veins, gearhead bonafides, it's the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, which will bring an anticipated 1.5 million or so people from near and far, plus tens of thousands of classic and custom and just plain weird cars, to a 16-mile portion of Woodward Avenue on Saturday for the 24th year. Loved by gearheads, collectors and the merely curious, who see it as the Motor City's version of Mardi Gras, and loathed by others, who deride it as the world's largest traffic jam, the Dream Cruise is nothing if not an explosion for the senses. The Cruise will officially go from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., though of course cruisers have been out already for weeks.
Since the time Donald Trump began his presidential campaign, he has targeted automakers (XLY) like Ford Motor Company (F) for the decision to move car production to Mexico. Since coming into power, Trump has kept a close eye on automakers to make sure they don’t move their car production out of the US.
According to the recent data compiled by Reuters, only 18% of analysts covering Ford stock (F) gave it “buy” ratings. By comparison, a much higher percentage of about 57% of analysts covering GM stock gave it “buy” ratings. These ratings were based on the consensus of 22 analysts covering Ford and 21 analysts covering GM as of August 14, 2018.
Can America Be Great Again without a Strong Auto Industry? In 2017, the biggest challenge for automakers was to generate more sales and keep their profitability intact at a time when US auto sales were softening. In the last few years, US passenger car sales have gone down significantly, while stronger truck sales have kept automakers’ hopes alive.
In the last few quarters, the auto parts retail industry struggled due to weak demand. Earlier this year, Advance Auto Parts’ (AAP) management suggested that the weakness is temporary. The long-term growth shouldn’t be impacted by the weakness. In the second quarter, Advance Auto Parts’ strong results boosted investors’ confidence and raised their hopes about the auto parts retail industry’s future growth prospects. In this part, we’ll discuss what analysts think about Advance Auto Parts’ growth in the coming quarters.
In July 2018, Ford Motor Company (F) sold about 69,994 units of SUVs (sports utility vehicles), a 1.5% drop YoY (year-over-year). On the brighter side, the sales of the company’s truck segment saw strong gains of ~10.2% to 89,153 units in July 2018 from 80,886 units sold in July 2017.
It hasn’t been easy for General Motors (NYSE:GM), Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU) Daimler (OTCMKTS:DDAIF) or even Ferrari (NYSE:RACE). F stock is down a whopping 24% so far this year and more than 20% since early June. Now yielding 6.4%, many investors are wondering if Ford is a screaming buy.

Ford has just unveiled the 2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet drag car to celebrate the model's 50th anniversary, and it's mean-looking. As previously reported, it features a bigger-displacement version of the Mustang GT's Coyote engine at 5.2 liters. On top of it is a 3.0-liter Whipple supercharger, and power is sent rearward to a Ford 9-inch solid axle.
With just a quick glance General Electric (NYSE:GE) and Ford Motor (NYSE:F) appear to be cut from the same cloth. Both were once at the top of their game, but recently, both F and GE stock have been destroyed as the sheer passage of time has made the two companies much less relevant. When one takes a closer look, however, it becomes clear that General Electric and Ford aren’t exactly carbon copies of one another.
In the last month, Ford Motor Company (F) stock has largely traded on a negative note. Since it reported its dismal second-quarter results on July 25, the stock has gone down by about 10% as of August 14. The company’s second-quarter adjusted earnings fell by ~52% YoY (year-over-year) to $0.27 per share and missed Wall Street analysts’ estimates of $0.31. The company also reported a 2.5% YoY decline in its revenue for the quarter, and its profitability also deteriorated. Before we explore Ford’s July US sales data in detail, let’s take a quick look at its stock performance.
