14:02 EDTFEarnings Preview: Ford approaches 52-week high ahead of Q2 report
Ford Motor Co. (F) is expected to report second quarter earnings on Thursday, July 24, before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Ford is a manufacturer and distributor of cars and trucks across six continents. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 36c on revenue of $36.26B, according to First Call. The consensus range for earnings per share is 31c-43c on revenue of $34.65B-$39.42B. LAST QUARTER: Ford reported first quarter adjusted EPS of 25c against estimates for 31c on revenue of $35.9B against estimates for $34.06B. On its Q1 earnings report, the company said its plan for FY14 automotive revenue to be about equal to FY13's $139.4B is on track. It said FY14 operating margin and operating related cash flow plans are on track as well. The company maintained its view for U.S. and China industry volumes, but increased its view for EU 20 industry volume this year to 14M-15M from 13.5M-14.5M. The company expects second quarter production to be 1.7M units, up 32,000 units from a year ago, more than explained by higher volume in Asia Pacific. Compared with the first quarter, second quarter production is up 87,000 units. On its Q1 earnings conference call, Ford said it expects the remaining quarters of year to be 'substantially better' than Q1. On May 1, Ford announced CEO Alan Mulally was retiring and would be replaced by Mark Fields, effective July 1. On May 7, Ford announced a $1.8B stock repurchase plan. On June 24, Ford's Americas Chief Joe Hinrichs said the company was on schedule for its aluminum bodied 2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been mostly positive in the weeks leading up to Fords's Q2 earnings report. On April 28, Craig-Hallum upgraded Ford to Buy from Hold based on balance sheet, earnings profitability and dividend yield, and the upcoming 2015 F-Series launch. The firm raised its price target on the shares to $21 from $16. On May 15, Buckingham said Ford shares should be sold. Buckingham recommended buying GM's (GM) shares aggressively and selling Ford's stock. The firm reported that GM's performance in May had significantly outpaced that of Ford, while GM's full-size pickup sales had risen year-over-year. The firm kept a Buy rating on GM and a Sell rating on Ford. PRICE ACTION: Ford's shares have traded 13% higher since its Q1 report and are approaching their 52-week high of $18.08. In afternoon trading ahead of Thursday's Q2 report, Ford is up about 0.4% to $17.90.

08:14 EDTFFord should beat Q2 estimates while General Motors will miss, says UBS
