Ford’s July performance

The broader market (SPY) began July 2017 on a mixed note. The S&P 500 Index had risen 1.5% month-to-date as of July 18. Since the beginning of 2017, mainstream automakers’ stocks have faced the heat of softening US auto sales.

So far in July, Ford has outperformed the broader market just like its peers GM and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU). Ford stock had risen ~5.0% month-do-date as of July 18. At the same time, GM and FCAU had risen 4.3% and 13.1%, respectively, month-to-date.

Investors’ high expectations from Ford’s 2Q17 results due to its strong F-Series truck sales could be the key driver of its recent rise on Wall Street.

In contrast, US electric carmaker Tesla (TSLA) has fallen ~9.2% month-to-date. TSLA’s mixed 2Q17 vehicle deliveries could be the primary driver of these losses.
