14:14 EDTFDeutsche Bank upgrades Ford on earnings outlook
Deutsche Bank upgraded Ford (F) to Buy from Hold in a note to investors, saying that the company's earnings are poised to increase significantly in 2015-2016. WHAT'S NEW: Ford can increase the price of its pickup trucks, Deutsche Bank analyst Rod Lache wrote. The company's pickups now cost just an average of about $150 per vehicle more than GM's offerings, versus the average gap of $3,000 over the last five years, Lache explained. Ford's new F150 truck will be less expensive than previously expected, as the truck's aluminum body will be cheaper than anticipated and the company has been able to find other ways to cut production costs, the analyst stated. Additionally, Ford's prospects in Europe and China are "favorable," according to the analyst, who upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold. He raised his price target on the shares to $19 from $18.50. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Lache was somewhat upbeat on General Motors (GM), saying that the company can keep it profits at "decent" levels by cutting its costs. However, he added that the automaker's products have not met expectations. Lache now expects GM's share of the pickup truck market share to drop to 17% in 2015 from 17.5% this year. He lowered his 2014 EPS estimate for GM to $2.58 from $3.38 and reduced his 2015 EPS estimate for the company to $4.20 from $4.80. Lache reduced his price target on the shares to $41 from $48, but kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Ford added 0.6% to $15.72, while GM fell 2.9% to $32.33.
