We remain interested in seeing how Ford stock performs in 2019 given the recent decisions by the automaker to optimize its business performance, including discontinuing all sedans and focusing on more profitable crossovers, SUVs and pickup trucks in the North American market, while at the same time beginning to invest heavily in significantly less profitable autonomous vehicles and technologies.

Frankie's first favorite car was a 1968 Ford Mustang, and he's had a strong appreciation for the nameplate ever since. Later in his youth he became infatuated with Eleanor, thanks to Nicholas Cage's stellar performance. Frank's a real jokester, too.

    Funny to think that a profitable company which pays dividends and has popular products would have stock values close to penny stock territory. Last I looked, Ford still has around $25 billion in cash on hand to boot. In the meantime look at Tesla stock. No profits, no dividends and a three digit value. Strange times we live in indeed!

      Exactly. The valuation of Tesla is so over the top that it approaches ludicrous territory and makes you wonder what basis these supposed expert analysts and investors are using to invest in what stocks.

    One big gap in product line is now filled with the Ranger.
    Bronco, mini Bronco, Mini truck are now in the pipeline.
    The furniture guy is the only worry as it looks like forcing common platforms for multiple applications could compromise brand just like GM did in the 1980’s.
