What Declining Car Sales Could Mean For This Stock


When analyzing the top 20 stocks in which financial professionals are most interested, one may not expect used car sales to be an inspiration for financial professionals to analyze the stocks they are…

But this week, that has changed, and for a very justifiable reason.

This month alone, Ford’s (NYSE: F) used car sales have declined by 11%. Having already declined 10% in March, the American automotive giant’s used car sales have now declined 22% in 2020.

The last time Ford’s used car sales dropped a similar magnitude was, unsurprisingly, following the 2008 financial crisis.

Given Ford’s used car market is larger than its new car market, financial professionals may have immediately surmised that since Ford’s used car market is down 22% this year, their primary market’s revenue would likely be down as well.

That could explain exactly why TrackStar’s proprietary financial tech captured a surge in pageviews on the company’s trading activity, and why financial professionals are interested in the stock itself.



As Indicated in the chart above, Ford is currently trading pennies below overhead resistance of $5/share.

I’ll be short-biased on this stock today below $5/share, as below that benchmark, the stock itself could wintess up to a 25% decline in its price-per-share before encountering support in the days ahead.

If Wall Street’s deepest pockets start trading the financial catalyst I’m tracking, Ford could see new year-to-date lows, especially if domestic markets drop as well.
