I'm in for it at $8.10 guess I will buy more if it hits $5
Long time good dividend stock- not a cap app stock.
I remember in the early 2000s hearing a broker strongly pushing Ford stock at $9/ share.
This is why I bought it. Im in at $9.38. I do think it will go up once they announce new products. Especially an all electric F150.
If you look today GM stock went down almost 2 times the amount of Ford percentage wise.
They are at cross-roads. Market has not had confidence in new CEO yet. Much of the debt they talk about with Ford is owned by Ford Credit. They have to borrow money to loan money and Ford Credit is Rock solid. Ford is under valued in my opinion, so I would hold it if you own it. China hurt a bit as well as Europe in past years, but they have made the cuts needed. Electrification will be interesting. Truck leadership and sales volume is also key. I think good things are ahead, so I am on hold with a buy if drops much further.
It fluctuates enough that you could day trade it if you wanted. Still pays a dividend. If you're going to buy individual stock though plan on a buy and hold strategy. And when it dips buy a little more, it's essentially on sale. If you want less volatility buy mutual funds. Sure you pay a management fee but it's managed to the goal of the fund.
and the goal of the fund is to take your money & post returns just good enough to slightly outpace the market (if your lucky) while padding their wallets w/ the fees- another legit concern w/ investing in mutual funds esp if you’re younger? They’re dinosaurs- the mgmt group may not even be around in 5-10 years as everyone slows comes to the simple realization- they’re a rip off. For similar fees you could just go to a financial advisor group you deal w/ one on one or on phone let them take the 1% & manage your portfolio while actually having some transparency. What also sucks about mutual funds besides not truly knowing what your invested in, & charging you up the ass in fees, is they’re not as liquid & you can’t bail on em as easily in times like these to deploy fresh capital & buy more stock. I have some mutual funds in my portfolio- no friggin clue what they’ll be trading @ tomorrow morning come 930, & looking at it that way- they’re the opposite of “safe” investments IMO.
Course you could argue ETFs are great if you time the buy right (now would be a good time) & have a diversified (or lucky) mix of exposure. While the fees are extremely low, have to be weary in terms of how popular/widespread ETFs are & that a lot of “knee jerk reaction” trading goes on in the background by robotrading/algorithms which can add unnecessary volatility.
Which brings me to where I’m in agreement w/ ya- how many people you know who got rich (not MAINTAINED their wealth) buying mutual funds OR ETF’s? I’m sure same as me- none. I am sure many people know someone who got wealthy buying STOCKS. Gotta grow a pair. Gotta have long term outlook. But unless you wanna try your hand in real estate (which can also crumble) or app making I can’t think of any other good legal way to
“Get rich quick”
that being said? I may buy some Ford stock now. I’m adding to all my positions- 6-18% dips in 48 hrs across all holdings necessitates it.
love the divvy paying stuff- the aristocrat stocks, REITs, quality spider/Schwab/vanguard high yield funds. Adding 10% more to my VYM position just before responding to this!
Not sure if Ford is going to be a much better company in a year, but I am sure if there was a time to buy in- now isn’t a bad one. And if you do buy it- like everyone says- HOLD it!!
I bought in several years back at around $15, which makes me the biggest loser here so far. Ugh. It's the worst performer in my portfolio. Every time it think it can't get worse, it does. Fortunately my Raptor is a better performer.
