[On :Freetrade:] Ford - F πŸ¦… 🚘

Bad news coming out of China today:

I got in at $11 due to their heritage and R&D efforts a few years ago. As a shareholder, I’d like them to put their future focus on electric vehicles, which could move the share price to the right direction.

Dividends have been strong.

Pretty interesting take on Ford for anyone considering the 6% dividend yield.

6% is quite decent.

I know some people chase 10% though.

They are partnering with Rivian to build a high end electric Lincoln, I guess they are hoping that will be a competitor to Tesla

I hold some shares as part of my dividend portfolio

I held Ford for a while but came to think they were going to be always the bridesmaid and never the bride. If self driving is the next big market then GM look streets ahead with Cruise.

Ford seem slightly ahead on electric but still a long way behind Tesla.

Think Tesla, Nio, Rivian, Waymo & Nissan are streets ahead of Ford in both departments.

Ford own a huge chunk of Rivian

Ah didn’t know that!

Dividend suspended.

It’s hard to not think that the virus is but a smokescreen. Ford must have been thinking about rescinding the dividends for a while, given how the share price has struggled in the past few years. This is disappointed as I bought the stock for the dividends.

On the flip side, the suspension of the dividends changes the outlook on the strength of the stock quite a bit.

The earnings call will take place at 10pm tonight. Expect some turbulence in the stock price. It would be good to get an update on dividends.

Expected revenue is just above $30B and earnings-per-share -0.06, both below previous quarter.
