Ford Motors reported a narrower loss than Wall Street expected Friday and also said it reduced its cash outflow "significantly."

Ford reported a net loss of $1.4 billion, or 60 cents a share in the first quarter. Excluding one-time items Ford said it lost 75 cents a share.

Sales, excluding special items, were $24.8 billion, down from $39.2 billion in the year-ago period.

On average, analysts surveyed by Thomson predicted a loss, excluding items, of $1.23 a share with sales of about $22 billion.

The company expects to be profitable in 2011, Ford CEO Alan Mulally told CNBC's Phil LeBeau.

Operating-related cash flow was reduced to -$3.2 billion.

Remembering that Volvo's sale will rbing in probably around 4b, that cancels this loss.

Has Volvo found a buyer yet?

I do not think there is a buyer for Volvo yet.

Ford stock is trading at $5.08 and I think it will go a lot higher very soon.

Ford is really doing well compared to their main competition.
