Ford Stock Given ‘Hold’ Rating By Nine Financial Firms

Ford stock got off to a hot start following Jim Farley’s appointment as CEO of the automaker back in October 2020, though that hasn’t been the case in recent months, Rather, with the company plagued by supply chain constraints and soaring inflation, Ford stock plummeted back to earth, price-wise, and was downgraded to from “neutral” to “sell” by UBS Group AG last October. Ford’s stock price has taken more of a beating this month, declining by seven percent last week. However, a total of nine ratings firms have now given Blue Oval stock a rating of “hold,” according to MarketBeat.

Out of a group of 20 total analysts, seven assigned a rating of “buy” to Ford stock, nine gave it a “hold” recommendation, and three rated the stock as a “sell,” while its one-year price objective average came in at $15.53. Among the many groups that have chimed in over the past week or so, Barclays gave it an “equal weight” rating and a $13.00 price target, Tudor Pickering a “hold” rating, and Citigroup a “neutral” rating while upping its price target from $13 to $14.

On the flip side, JPMorgan Chase & Co. cut their price objective on Ford Motor from $16 to $15 and set an “overweight” rating for the company, while Deutsche Bank Aktiengesellschaft lowered Ford stock from “hold” to a “sell” and cut its price objective from $13 to $11.

Another telling sign that FoMoCo stock might be on the cusp of a rebound is the fact that several firms increased their position in the automaker recently, too. That includes Semmax Financial Advisors, which increased its Blue Oval holdings by 78.2 percent to 1,998 shares in Q4 of 2022, while Fairfield Bush & CO. purchased $37,000 worth of stock, Wagner Wealth Management LLC acquired a stake worth $25,000, Baldwin Brothers LLC MA purchased $26,000 in stock, and Boulder Wealth Advisors LLC  invested $27,000.

    They can’t pump Tesla without bashing the competition. Tesla is running out of customers who want a dated looking $60K commuter EV sedan/hatch. At that point the ANALysts will change their tune.

      Yeah no. Tesla’s are just getting rolling and the Model 3 is 35k with the rebate. The Mach E with its insane dealer markup is WAY over that. And you can actually BUY and get a Tesla without waiting years. So Ford is a joke. Here is the difference the Tesla is quicker, goes farther, charges quicker, and has a better charging network. So if you are looking for EV’s Ford is not the place to go.

    PS all you ICE folks, I would not buy anything but an EV given a choice. After driving one and not having the hassle with gas stations oil changes worry about the transmission or the engine or the water pump exhaust or the alternator etc. Yeah EV’s have a HUGE advantage.

    We saw the survey results as well. Over 70% in America don’t want EVs. It’s all over when you Google it.

      LoL K-street’s Last Chance Vance striving to be a first class disinfo meister is now collapsed into just making up numbers and mischaracterizing the categories of a biased 1.5y old survey.

      Your use of the royal we is impressive but with no link to your claimed source material your blop don’t cut it.

    EV’S ARE FREEDOM STEALING VEHICLES! NO RANGE! STILL USE FOSSIL FUELS TO RECHARGE! NO THANKS!
    PART OF FORD’S PROBLEM THE PAST 5-6 YEARS IS POOR QUALITY. 1.5L AND 2.0L ENGINES HAVING CYLIDER HEAD AND BLOCK PROBLEMS, 3.5 ECO BOOST CAM PHASERS, HUGE PROBLEM. 10 SPEED TRANSMISSIONS ANOTHER HUGE PROBLEM. AND A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF RECALLS! SEEMS THE R/D IS GOOD BUT USING SUB QUALITY PARTS. I OWN SOME OF THEIR STOCK SINCE 2004 GAINED LITTLE!

    All over Green Car Reports, Jalopnik, etc. It was a big poll, over 9,000 surveyed, no errors on a sample that big.

      K-street’s No Convince Vince suggests Jalopnik, well I couldn’t find this mystery survey there.

      I didn’t bother looking elsewhere for Vince’s chimera.

    Ford is greedy allowing dealers to sell trucks suv etc $10… 20… 40 thousand over sticker !!! Now dealers have stock no one wants them!!

      Because all the customers bought their vehicles already (at inflated prices)?

      Your logic is hard to follow.

    From what I have read and heard is Ford is going to go to a sales paradigm similar to Tesla that takes sales away from dealerships so they cannot charge people with ADM. (Additional Dealer Markup) I fell victim to this when I bought my new 2023 Maverick Hybrid and the dealership hid this until I was in finance, I almost and should have walked away but after waiting so long and not actually expecting to get my order fulfilled, I ate it. (approx 4K above Sticker) I still believe that at this time Hybrids just make more sense than full electrics and until battery tech and infrastructure are built, full electrics are not the way to go.

      Yep, Farley wants to eliminate this friction point for customers.

    And most of the small family owned dealers are selling out as they see the manufactures are going a different way from what the actual buying public wants.
