It's Not a Good Day for the Autos

Ford Flops in Second Quarter, Cuts Full-Year Guidance

TheDeal's Tom Terrarosa breaks down Ford's earnings.

Ford Motor Co. (F) said Wednesday after the closing bell it recorded 27 cents per share of adjusted earnings on $38.9 billion in revenue. Analysts surveyed by Factset expected the company to post earnings of 31 cents per share on $39.14 billion in revenue.

Ford said in May that it did not expect to revise its full-year guidance after a fire broke out at one of its main parts suppliers, which forced a shut down of production of several of its vehicles, including its prized F-150 pickup truck, for more than a week.

Ford CEO Jim Hackett said Wednesday the company's "solid results in North America" were partially offset by "unexpected challenges with our overseas operations and headwinds in the business environment."

But, Ford wasn't the only automaker to report. General Motors Co. (GM) also reported earnings Wednesday.

GM Slashes Guidance After Mixed Second Quarter

The largest U.S. automaker reported adjusted earnings of $1.81 per share for the second quarter on revenue of $36.76 billion. Analysts surveyed by FactSet anticipated earnings of $1.78 per share on revenue of $37.74 billion for the quarter.

"Recent and significant increases in commodity costs and unfavorable foreign exchange impact of the Argentine peso and Brazilian real have negatively affected business expectations," the automaker said Wednesday in a statement.

GM didn't elaborate on its commodity costs in the statement but the company has been a vocal opponent of tariffs on steel imported into the U.S. as well as the proposed tariffs on auto imports from the European Union.

And let's not even get started on the Trump press conference

I think it's safe to say that it's time for a nap before earnings season starts up bright and early tomorrow. Don't forget that it's Amazon's big day.
