What are analysts saying about Ford Motor Company stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ford Motor Company stock:

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "Ford's bad news has been more than dissected in the last 6 months and sufficiently priced-in. Cyclical risks remain but estimates are holding up and Ford would benefit most among D3 from 1) infrastructure spending, 2) border adjusted tax reform and 3) exposure to a Russian auto recovery, all of which could spring earnings surprises. We upgrade to Hold (PT from $10 to $12) and switch relative preference from GM where cash returns appear at risk." (2/10/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ford posted a year-over-year decline in adjusted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2016. However, earnings per share comfortably surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Revenues also declined year over year but outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Ford expects 2016 pre-tax profit, adjusted earnings per share and automotive operating margin to be lower than 2015. Further, results from most regions are expected to be weaker this year. The positives for Ford include product launches, global expansion plans, efficient capital deployment, success of the One Ford plan, focus on autonomous vehicle development and a solid long-term outlook. However, Brexit-related concerns, weakness in South America, frequent product recalls and rising structural expenses are some concerns." (11/2/2016)

  • Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We see the biggest source of weakness from NA, with profits contracting by $1.2bn (down to $8.8bn), and with margin compression of 110bp down to 8.4%. Smart Mobility strategy update to give us greater comfort on Ford’s role in a world of #disruptivemobility: We expect Ford to show how it will expand its role in a world of #disruptivemobility beyond just vehicle manufacturing. We are also likely to get a more clear framework of its technology portfolio in electrification and autonomous (leveraging its autonomous announcement last month, and today’s mobility announcement that it is buying a shuttle service that uses Transit vans). Still expect OEMs to outperform suppliers, but beware volatility: We still believe that OEM stocks should outperform suppliers for now, given significantly depressed valuations and solid dividend yields for the OEMs. That said, negative datapoints will cause volatility, and we believe that Ford stock may underperform in the very near-term off a weaker outlook."

  • Rodman & Renshaw analysts commented, "With this transition now complete, we believe the company should make steady progress towards achieving mid-30 percent gross margins (from high-20 percent levels currently)," analyst Amit Dayal wrote in a note.On the revenue front, the analyst said the company's expanding distribution strategy and growing portfolio of LED offerings should give investors more confidence in its ability to capture share in the fast growing LED market.Related Link: Pacific Crest Favors Veeco Over Cree In LED SectorThe company has sold its products to about 178 Fortune 500 companies like General Electric Company (NYSE: GE), Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F), Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (NYSE: TM) and The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE: KO).Dayal believes Orion's existing relationship with these large customers should position it very competitively to win new LED business as replacement cycles come up. LED Sector On The Rise"We believe the LED deployment opportunity within the existing high bay customer base alone is $850 million and overall less than 5 percent of the OESX deployed facilities have been retrofitted with LED systems," Dayal noted.By 2030, LED lighting is estimated to account for the majority of installations and be equivalent to 88 percent of all "lumenhours" produced for general lighting. As such, the analyst believes Orion's total addressable market for retrofit lighting systems in North America is about $200 billion.Orion's stock has traded between $1.04 and $2.50 over the last 52-week period, with a significant drop seen in early February 2016 on the back of weaker third-quarter revenues. Looking ForwardThe stock has been depressed since those results, as investors await indications of improvement in in the company's LED sales and would like to see contribution from LED's steadily expand every quarter.

  • Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "fair outlook, big balance sheet and 4.5 percent dividend yield."While the U.S. auto cycle is undeniably 'long in the tooth,' this doesn't necessarily imply an impending drop in vehicle sales. Stable demand in the U.S., rising market share in China and improving margins in Europe could combine to drive more earnings growth than is currently implied by PJC/Street estimates," analyst Alexander Potter wrote in a note."But even if not, Ford offers a 4.5 percent dividend yield (6.3 percent including the special dividend) to protect against downside," Potter added.Geographical FocusPotter expects North America to account for 67 percent of the company's revenue in 2016, while generating 5.5x and 10x more profit than China and Europe, respectively. The analyst expects stable margins in the U.S. and China JVs, while seeing potential upside in Europe.In addition, Ford's European segment recently swung to profits and given recent tailwinds, the analyst said, "It's possible that our estimates don't fully capture the potential for margin expansion."Related Link: Faraday Future Gains Former Ferrari Boss For Executive PositionFord's multi-year target calls for 6–8 percent pre-tax margin in Europe, whereas PiperJaffray's model implies 2–3 percent.In North America, the analyst expects Ford to deliver 4.4 percent more vehicles in 2016 versus 2015 (vs. an industry-wide increase of 2.5 percent), driven by a continued shift toward pickups and SUVs. A greater contribution from Class 5-7 trucks is likely to also help. But, the analyst expects volume growth to decelerate to 2 percent in 2017 on lower ASPs, followed by flat growth in 2018.In Europe, Potter forecasts Ford's wholesale deliveries to grow 4.7 percent, 4.1 percent and 2.7 percent in 2016, 2017 and 2018, respectively.Potter said the stock's recent underperformance is due to building pessimism over the U.S. truck and auto cycle. But, he said this pessimism is overdone."While F might not regain its post-recession average multiple due to persistent investor concerns re: the cycle — we do think the valuation is likely to creep higher as it becomes evident that US auto demand will not experience a 'cliff event,'" (6/9/2016)
