- 1 Ford stock price: The company has just posted its earnings report for the 3rd quarter, to see how the bulls will react.
- 2 The company is showing revenue growth along with some major turnaround.
- 3 The current trend is bearish, see whether a reversal will occur.
One of the oldest automobile companies, Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) reported its Quarter 3 earnings today. The increase in the overall revenue surged up to 11%, year-over-year to $44 billion. In comparison, the net income of $1.2 billion significantly improved from a loss of $827 million during the same period last year.
The Investors Can be Bullish
As the net margins went positive once again, the investors are likely to gain that extra confidence they needed to start an uptrend. The company’s Adjusted EBIT (non-GAAP) also saw an increase to $2.2 billion as reported in the news release.
Ford’s commitment to providing leading vehicles and services to commercial customers through Ford Pro has resulted in higher revenue. It also has significantly improved the operating margins of the firm. Additionally, Ford Blue’s gas and hybrid vehicles demonstrated their strength and durable upside, with higher revenue, EBIT, and overall margins.
Pressure? What Pressure?
Ford’s Model E reported a 44% increase in shipments of electric vehicles and 26% revenue growth. However, the company has blamed the operating loss on the pressure it received from EV prices. Despite the setbacks, Ford maintained a strong balance sheet with $29B cash and $51B liquidity at the end of Q3.
