As I was stating previously on professional TV analysts, I personally wouldn't trust any of them. Take Ford for instance, are they getting a bad review by public television? I think so.
Recently, Ford has increased its dividend payout to 4% while maintaining steady growth and minimizing high operating costs. Whether this be through union negotiations to keep 2nd tier wages or through efficiency in the workplace, Ford has always went on a plant to plant basis for management intel. Each assembly plant considers its own operating costs and plans accordingly. Although the entire company itself has high debt on the books, Ford manufacturing and Ford Credit have sustained revenue growth through each economical worry.
In my opinion, Ford Motor company is gravely undervalued in common stock. The single price share does not factor in the company's ability to maneuver financially well through flexible credit options all taking place within the same corporate entity. Ford Credit + Ford Manufacturer = constant dividend growth. The next dividend payment will take place to move this stock price near 17.50. No price target can be set until the first year passes under the new F-150 aluminum body model change. As dealerships start receiving insurance money to fix auto body damage you will see massive company growth. This is because only 700,000 dealerships have been certified to fix aluminum body with rivets. Aluminum auto body repair costs double what Steel costs. I'm liking the sound of that.
Taking each separate item from Fords huge company, and looking at them separately, I can tell you honestly I believe Ford has placed itself in a nice spot to profit over the next few years.
