Ford passes Tesla as No. 2 U.S. car maker as stock goes on a tear

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/fo...ear-2019-04-26


Ford Motor Co. on Friday regained its status as the No. 2 U.S. car maker in market value, leaving Tesla Inc. behind after a massive earnings beat that stoked a rally for Ford stock.

Ford F, +10.74% shares were at their best since July and amassed the largest one-day gain in a decade, bringing the companyís market valuation to around $40.7 billion late Friday.

Tesla TSLA, -5.04% shares traded at their lowest since January 2017, still reeling from the wider-than-expected first-quarter loss the company reported earlier this week. That brought Teslaís market capitalization to around $40.6 billion.

Looks like Ford is finally turning the proverbial corner. Higher than expected earnings, even though they are not great, and their investment in Rivian drove the stock.

I believe this because their investment in high margin and very popular products will only perpetuate this good news. I read that in only a few years, Ford will earn $1B more by replacing the Focus / C-Max products with Ranger / Bronco. That's just one factory. And although Ranger is a solid hit, it will be nothing compared to new Bronco. Add to that new Explorer / Aviator, Escape / Corsair and mini bronco and of course hybrid versions of all the above, including F150.....and dang if Ford will not rake in the profits like never before. All in the next year or so. And then I think Wall Street will really love Ford when they show their BEV plans in greater detail, just as they roll out F150 and Mach products. And the best part of not wasting time and resources on too many low margin products, is you can re-invest more and sooner in your big $$$ makers. Go Ford
tagorgia and Darlene like this.

Hardly. This came out same day as earnings BTW, and it was Ford taking the initiative to fix what is a complicated formula, nothing more.

Meanwhile, yet another horrible quarter for Tesla. And things are looking pretty bad.

Forgot to mention this,

The $1B additional estimates that will be earned every year is based on the same exact volumes relative to Focus /C-Max. And again, that is one factory. Bam
