Institutional investors subscribing to Wall Street Horizon saw Ford “behaving as an outlier” before their 12% plunge.
On November 4, 2019, Wall Street Horizon confirmed Ford Motor Company's earnings data for 02/04/2020. Wall Street Horizon had forecasted the date as 01/22/2020 with a high level of confidence. This 13-day difference in announcing their Q4 2019 earnings is significantly outside the company’s normal Q4 earnings date announcement history. As presented in a joint MIT Sloan School of Management and University of Texas “Time Will Tell” whitepaper, delays in earnings announcements tend to indicate bad news. In the case of Ford, Wall Street Horizon’s own historical tracking data also earmarked their earnings date extension as an operational “outlier.”
Institutional traders and risk managers are now focused on three major new product cycles, including a hybrid F-150, a new Mustang Mach-E, and what appears to be bullish sentiment around its new Ford Bronco as both an iconic brand – and its intention to compete effectively with the high-demand Jeep Wrangler.
Is Ford firing on all cylinders? One thing’s for sure: institutional investors or risk managers who need to monitor Ford in depth can rely on Wall Street Horizon to deliver source links, not just to investor conferences and events but to commercial conferences to track any new Ford F-150, Mustang or, again, the iconic and potentially sentiment-changing Bronco. Want to learn how to monitor future changes to Ford’s corporate event “body language?”
