Ford (F) (I know, I know...)

Ford (F) (I know, I know...)
Ok, so I know that Ford generally is on nobody's list of dividend growth stocks. It is a cyclical company that stopped its dividend during the financial crisis, and only reinstated in 2012.

But I bought a few shares in 2012 right when they did start the dividend back up and all I can say is so far so good. 20 cents per share in 2012, 40 cents per share in 2013, and just announced a 25% raise to 50 cents per share in 2014 (from 10 cents quarterly to 12.5 cents quarterly).

Go Ford!

Obviously I am biased and love Ford as a company.(although not as an investment) Do you think they will be ok when Mulally retires soon? He's really turned the company around.

F has been on my list and I agree that it looks attractive. I just haven't been able to find room to add it so far and the cyclical nature has kept me away as well.

I hold a significant amount of Ford. I bought in 2009, and got out with about a 75% gain in 2011. Then I bought back after a sell off, and have been holding and adding since. I'm enjoying the dividend increases!

We have F and as soon as GM announced their dividend at close to 3% we bought GM.

I must be correct because some "growth" analysts aren't happy Big Grin

Future of GM Dividend

"Buy American".....unless it's a 2000 Jetta TDI (195,000 miles, 46-50 mpg...still running strong)

As I think I've said elsewhere, I'm not sure that I'd buy F at today's prices. Maybe. But at $9.00 per share, real earnings, and the new Fusion just released, it felt like a pretty safe buy!
