    On January 3, 2018 Ford stock was $12.76 . Now it is heralded that there is a 3% gain in share price. Yes, the new strategy is paying dividends in Bizarro World. Yes, the confidence in Ford’s new plans are less than underwhelming.

    Big deal, I remember when Red Poling President of ford sold 57000 shares of Ford stock at $101.00 per share on Oct 17th 1987 and on Oct the 19th the market crashed. I’m still looking for his Stock broker I’d like to have him for myself.
