Ford Motor Company's 2019 Guidance: Uncertainty

F

John Rosevear, The Motley FoolMotley FoolJanuary 17, 2019, 9:20 PM GMT. Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) said that it earned $7 billion before taxes and special items in 2018, down substantially from its 2017 result, in a preliminary release of its full-year earnings on Wednesday. Ford traditionally previews its full-year results and gives guidance for the coming year at an annual investment conference in Detroit in mid-January; it did that on Wednesday morning. While it won't release its full earnings report until next week, we now have a pretty good idea of how Ford performed in 2018. Ford said that its earnings fell in 2018 because of pressures in Europe and China, and it isn't yet sure how 2019 will play out. Image source: Ford Motor Company. Ford's preliminary earnings: The raw numbers. Adjusted EBIT margin, North America. Ford Credit pre-tax earnings. Shanks said that Ford may be able to provide more detailed guidance as the year unfolds. But right now, Ford's guidance boils down to this: Good things are coming, but we aren't yet sure if any will arrive in 2019. For long-suffering Ford investors, that's frustrating to hear. But I think there's some reassurance to be taken from this: Rather than throw out numbers they might not be able to hit, Shanks and other Ford executives are giving us an honest assessment.

Ford is building hybrid and all-electric F-150 pickups it says won't skimp on power

F

CNBC17 January 2019, 18:39 GMT. Ford is working on hybrid and electric versions of its iconic and best-selling F-150 pickup that the second-largest U.S. automaker says won't skimp on power. The market for heavy-duty electric trucks is starting to swing more in Ford's favor as the entire industry and consumer demand shifts to more fuel-efficient vehicles. Ford shared the first details of a hybrid version of its new 2020 Explorer SUV during the Detroit auto show this week. Executives also teased some details about the company's electric vehicle plans over the next few years, including a fully electric version of Ford's popular full-size F-150 pickup, and a planned high-performance electric crossover with design cues taken from the Mustang. "We think customers want to pay not just for the fuel efficiency and the carbon footprint of hybrid, they want performance." For example, a hybrid powertrain could give the F-150 pickup a lot of low-end torque, which is helpful for climbing hills and towing loads. Ford also plans to put power outlets on the truck, effectively turning it into a generator for customers using it for work, such as contractors and construction workers.

Why Ford Motor, Snap, and Aptinyx Slumped Today

F

Dan Caplinger, The Motley FoolMotley FoolJanuary 16, 2019, 9:34 PM GMT. Wall Street celebrated a solid start to earnings season on Wednesday, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average to triple-digit gains and producing more modest increases for other popular stock indexes. Even though the market correction near the end of 2018 raised concerns about a potential economic slowdown, few of the financial results that investors have seen thus far have supported that proposition. Yet not all of the day's news was positive, and some companies saw their stocks punished as a result. Ford Motor (NYSE: F), Snap (NYSE: SNAP), and Aptinyx (NASDAQ: APTX) were among the worst performers. Shares of Ford Motor were down 6% after the automaker reported preliminary results for the fourth quarter. Indeed, Snap did start offering financial guidance under Stone's tenure, but the Snapchat operator's fundamental business performance has been weak, including falling user metrics and rising costs. For many, the news seems to be just one more bad mark against Snap and its controversial CEO.
