Ford Motor Company (F) Ford produces cars and trucks. Ford trades an average of 34.2 million shares per day with a marketcap of $35.7 billion. 52 Week High: $13.31
52 Week Low: $9.13
Book Value: $4.33
Price To Book: 2.14 The average analyst target price for Ford is $14.64. Short interest is not very high at 3.62% The trailing 12-month price-to-earnings ratio is 5.5, the mean fiscal-year estimate price-to-earnings ratio is 7.06, based on earnings of $1.33 per share this year. Investors are receiving 20 cents in dividends for a yield of 2.13%. In the last month the stock has fallen -11.93%. Most of the loss is a result of weak European sales and losses. North America continues to perform and Asia is ramping up. Investors have been rewarded with an increase of year-over-year revenue. Revenue reported was $120.90 billion last fiscal year compared to $118.30 billion in the previous year. The bottom line has rising earnings year-over-year of $6.56 billion last fiscal year compared to $2.72 billion in the previous year. Ford is oversold on the weekly and daily charts and is due for a technical bounce. The best way I have found for playing oversold stocks is to write put options. Writing put options lowers positional risk and compensates for both time and favorable directional movements. I like the August $9 put this week during the next few days for 23 cents or greater. My profit target is 20 cents or close out on option expiration date.
