Ford’s 3Q17 report

Ford Motor Company (F) is set to release its 3Q17 earnings report on October 26. Ford is the second-largest US auto company by vehicle sales volume after General Motors (GM).

How Is Ford Stock Performing ahead of 3Q17 Earnings?

Ford stock performance in October so far

Since the beginning of fiscal 2017, stocks of mainstream automakers (IYK) faced the heat of softening US auto sales. However, legacy automaker stocks saw a turnaround in September.

The broader market (SPY) began October on a mixed note, and the S&P 500 Index has risen 1.6% as of October 17 on a month-to-date basis. In October so far, Ford has outperformed the broader market just like its peers including GM, Toyota (TM), and Honda (HMC). Ford stock has risen about 2.5% month-to-date. At the same time, the stocks of GM Toyota and Honda have risen 11.5%, 3.5%, and 2.9%, respectively.

Investors’ high expectations from Ford’s third-quarter earnings could be the key reason for its recent rise on Wall Street.
