Ford: A Surprisingly Stable Business, But The Company Has A Major Risk

Ford Motor Company (F) is a stock that I have never looked at before. I am analyzing this stock at the request of some of my readers who commented on my recent article on the Dividend Kings. The company was not on my radar as a dividend growth stock since the dividend has been constant since 2015. There is also a recent historical negative for Ford since the U.S. automotive industry in its entirety performed very poorly during the Great Recession. But saying that, Ford, did not go bankrupt and did not get a bailout in the same sense as other automotive companies. The company survived and has been profitable since 2010 and started paying a dividend in 2012. Today, the main appeal for Ford is the regular dividend yield, which is over 6.5% and well-covered. But beyond the yield, the company has been consistently growing the top line since 2009, and the business is stable.
