In what is a cruel and unfair felony, Moodys' agents (mindless ?, intoxicated ?, blind?) have classified Ford's credit level as "junk." Here the article:


http://fordauthority.com/2019/09/ford-credit-rating-slashed-on-doubts-on-turnaround-plan/



It is very unpleasant to read something that makes no sense. Ford was required restructuring measures to improve its financial status ... now that these measures are taken, they say that due to the cost of those measures, Ford's credit is "garbage." Despite the Ford credit rating downgrade, it has a strong business, a solid balance sheet, and “plenty of liquidity” to invest in its future, the automaker said in a statement.


We will see who is right, whether Moody or Ford.

Like I said elsewhere, right as the new critical profit driving products arrive, they downgrade.

Explorer/Aviator and Escape/Corsair this year. Next year we'll have F-150, Bronco, baby Bronco, Mach E, etc.

I´m medical Doctor, not financial adviser, but if Ford is launching (rigth now!) new products that are very promising and (sure...) will give more profits to Ford, why say that Ford financial status is a disaster?. I think the moment to buy Ford stocks share is now! In 1 or 2 years, the profits at Ford will growth and the value of the stocks shares will rise.



I cant understand Wall Street...

They are basically looking at this 2y out and can see that even with increased (potentially) margins, Ford’s market share is shrinking and people are leaving in droves to other brands because some can’t find what they want or the line up is too old or the new line up is priced too high...I think Ford is trying too hard to go upmarket without the guts to do it.

And then there are huge clouds looming, the DCT transmission issue will most definitely blow up, the fuel economy investigation that is in progress might also blow up....all of them will come at a big cost, which will also impact margins...

So cold heart analysis paint a daunting picture!
