Last quote about Ford

David Sullivan
Making cars is hard. I would argue that making a CD is not very hard. Ford is first and foremost a vehicle manufacturing company. It looks to me like Mark Fields put that part of the business on cruise control. You didn't hear management discussing how they were going to not let that happen gain. The message wasn't really communicated on how they were going to fix the day-to-day operations of the

Scott Cook - Intuit

Lots of people can manufacture well, but manufacturing the same old products will get you the same old results. You hire a Jim if you want to learn to manufacture what people will want

James Hackett

Both of us feel like over the years – what happens in big corporations – the bureaucracy and the hierarchy's probably overwhelmed what can be faster decision making. Bill gets it, he understands the culture. We are totally

Bill Ford Jr. - Ford Motor

We're moving from a position of strength to transform Ford for the future. Jim Hackett is the right CEO to lead Ford during this transformative period for the auto industry and the broader mobility

Bill Ford

We have to re-energize our business, we need to modernize our

Joseph Spak - RBC Capital Partners

Ford's reputation with the investor community with respect to the secular pressures is that they are throwing a lot of things at the wall. They are doing a lot. Some of it may be smart. But the overall communication hasn't been great. A simpler message may be

Jim Cramer

He had a difficult situation. He was told to develop an autonomous car. He's told to be a worldwide guy. You do have peak auto in the U.S. and U.S. is really where Ford has made its biggest strides. So, it's kind of an impossible

Jim Cramer

I was not surprised. If you judge a guy by a stock price, I guess he had to

Chris DeRose

The analogous thing is he would talk about taking Steelcase out of commodity hell. When you think about where the auto industry is, I think there's a pretty clear message that here's a guy who knows how to differentiate in a low-margin, commodity based

Mark Fields - Ford Motor Company

You have to have one foot in today ... but also one foot in the future. I think investors understand our

James Hackett

The way that that gets fixed is the nature of the innovation and the ideas making their way into the market. It even sounds a little corny but the stock price is a consequence of the actions we're going to take to make the company more fit, more profitable and a more fun place to work. The biggest challenge I had [at Steelcase], and I will have here, is to have everybody see the future. They can see their opportunity in that. And secondly, that it's our right to win and we don't have to cede that to anybody, Tesla or any of them. I love that challenge because I know how to do

Jack Nerad

Mark Fields was given the nearly impossible task of making the utterly conventional auto manufacturer, Ford Motor Company, into a high-tech information-style company with share values to match. Despite turning in credible profits, Fields was unable to turn Ford into a stock market darling, and that may well prove elusive going

Gary Bradshaw - Hodges Capital Management

There's just nothing out there that looks like it will get the stock moving. GM is in the same boat. They don't have a car out there like a Tesla that is getting people excited and saying they need to buy

James Hackett

I am the product of wonderful parents who themselves managed through difficult economic times in their

James Hackett

It's a perversity that when you see something changing you think it's just a flash or a temporary moment. The system that's most dominant believes its virtues will keep it from ever being overtaken. And what I learned from them was you can always really be cynical and downtrodden, but it takes leadership with inspiration and hope to imagine the brighter side of things. And I believe that I've always seen the promise of our

Donald J. Trump

I'm not giving up because I didn't do anything wrong, But I can't speak for these

David Brady

It assumes a set of conditions that I view as about zero possibility. Trump's impeached and the Republicans manage to hold the House and the Senate? That's not going to happen. The voters would punish them and the result is you've got Pence as president and he's more like Gerry

Mary Greenwell

To get that sort of look, I always use Sensai Bronzing Gel, £31, which is the most natural bronzer and gives skin a boost of hyaluronic acid. My fail safe mascara is Sensai's 38°C Mascara as it lasts all day and will not budge and then I highlight eyes with Tom Ford brow pencil and eyeliners and Chanel eyeshadows, which just add soft

Joe Phillippi

As the (Detroit) Big Three look out at the landscape, they see dramatic changes coming in the concept of mobility. They are desperately trying to figure out the future business model and how they will fit

Rick Barnes

He would tell you it wasn't easy. We had a lot of long talks where he started saying, Can I do it this way? Can I do it that way?' And one thing I told him, You got to understand something. Your jersey is hanging in that building, and you have gotta have a degree from the University of Texas.' And we argued a little bit, but he always came back

Rick Barnes

I'm proud of him. Because he is -- I told him, you can never be associated with any other university but the University of Texas, and I'm just really -- oh, it's cool, man. But I'm so happy for him, and proud is an understatement. But he deserves it more than anybody. I'm walking,' and he said 'You better be there. And I said I wouldn't miss it for anything. I love him. I love

Tim Aker

We have got to make sure that we have Ukip MPs on the backbenches, the Vietcong in the trees, making sure that if they don't deliver, if they don't do what the people want, we will be there to strike. Without Ukip in the Commons, there will be no Brexit. Now they are selecting Remain candidates for safe seats. Take Vicky Ford, also known as Vichy Ford due to her willingness to collaborate with the EU, can this euro-fanatic be trusted with Brexit. Jackie Doyle Price, Brandon Lewis, Matt Warman, all Remain MPs in heavily Brexit seats. They have to

Dan Ammann - General Motors

These actions will further allow us to focus our resources on winning in the markets where we have strong franchises and see greater opportunity. We have compelling plans for growth in both the top line and the bottom line as we invest for the

Daniel Niles

The longer it keeps climbing and the higher valuations go, the more nervous I become. We're long overdue for a correction. This is the second-longest bull market since World War II. China's auto sales last year were really stimulated by the fact that they cut taxes down to 5 percent from 10. So that went ahead and really ramped up auto sales last year into the double digits. The most recent month, it went negative. In the U.S., we all know what is going on with Ford. This market is very concentrated to say the least. But I think you do have to look at the individual names within the

David Whiston - Morningstar

David Whiston - Morningstar

Helima Croft - BC Capital

Other plays still remain on the sidelines in this $50 environment. When we were growing at a million barrels in the U.S., it wasn't Permian. It was Bakken and Eagle Ford. The other thing about shale is it has a very high decline rate. The shale did come back stronger. Rigs are returning and for now it remains largely a Permian

Arun Sundararajan

Jim Farley

John JV Venable - Air Force

Being able to reliability regulate the launch speed at which something goes off the boat, then not ruin that aircraft over time and not have excessive wear and tear is [done] better with an electric catapult. The Navy was thinking about this in the long-term sense, what is going to leave the boat in 50 years, because that's how long each of the Ford-Class carriers will last. We've got to be prepared and got to build the technology that... meets that future

We're going through this transition. We're embracing it and I think you will see a lot more exciting news on this to

Jim Farley

For Ford, it's not only important for the UK's agreement with the 27 (remaining EU) countries but equally important are countries like Turkey and South Africa which hasn't really been talked about. There should be a transition period. That transition period is really critical for the future of our investments in the

If you are not giving players a solid belief system, they are not going to shine.

Francis Ford Coppola

Trusting the leadership of huge corporations with America's artistic heritage is a crucial mistake, and can already be seen in the 'monotony' of contemporary major studio cinema. The changes you are making at the FCC will only make the fragile balance between artist and businessman more impossible to maintain. I assure you that none of the films that I or my contemporaries are known and celebrated for could exist today in such a

Jack White

One day, I want this place to be like what I had heard about Henry Ford wanted for the Ford Motor Company, which was you pour in all your raw materials on this side, and out the other side of the factory pop out cars. You know, I sometimes sort of lay in bed thinking a lot of it is a waste of my time. Because I don't know how much of it really connects and follows through, and especially in the day and age I was dropped on planet Earth, to work in the day and age where people – music is the last thing on their mind after their cellphone, Netflix,

Ward McCarthy - Jefferies

This has been ongoing since Q4 of last year, where the upward momentum just petered out. It does seem like credit has tightened up somewhat, and of course you had both Easter and Passover in April, which is unusual. That could have been a factor. The bottom line is the upward trend in light vehicle sales peaked. Going forward light vehicle sales are not likely to contribute to trend growth. They'll be a factor in month-to-month changes in retail

Mustafa Mohatarem - General Motors

If they didn't have their manufacturing in Mexico - the plants, the Ford plants, the Chevy plants, the GM plants - then they'd be right back up in Michigan or they'd be back in Ohio or they'd be back in Indianapolis or Indiana, and there'd be more employed people here in the States as opposed to Mexico. And the price of the vehicle's not going to change, realistically, when you think about it. . . . I just kind of believe in 'Made in the USA.' You know? Buy

Big announcement by Ford today. Major investment to be made in three Michigan plants. Car companies coming back to U.S. JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! Just got a call from my friend Bill Ford, Chairman of Ford, who advised me that he will be keeping the Lincoln plant in Kentucky - no Mexico. I worked hard with Bill Ford to keep the Lincoln plant in Kentucky. I owed it to the great State of Kentucky for their confidence in me!feedback

The president was pleased to see that Ford announced $1.2 billion investment in three manufacturing facilities in Michigan just two weeks after automobile executives came to the White House and met with the president. This adds to the growing wave of positive news, jobs news, under the president. I think there's been some regulatory efforts and some commitments on the regulatory efforts going forward in the future that I think may have played a

Lisa Newman - Henry Ford Health System

The Midwest is often referred to as America's heartland, and is home of the so-called bellwether states whose voting patterns have consistently predicted the outcome for national elections. Patients with breast cancer and breast cancer surgeons are also voters, and it is therefore reasonable to question whether these political patterns can be generalized to oncology practice

Lisa Newman - Henry Ford Health System

We must respect patient choice and avoid being paternalistic, but we must also protect our patients from making impulsive surgical decisions when they are freshly encumbered by the panic accompanying a new diagnosis of breast

Lisa Newman - Henry Ford Health System

Choices regarding breast cancer surgery – much like casting a ballot – can be intensely personal decisions, based on one's lifetime experiences and exposures, as well as values and resources. Patients and voters alike deserve accurate information regarding realistic expectations from their options. I think that women in the Midwest may well be representative of women in the rest of the country. It may be that the notably rising rates in the Midwest may be a sign that we are going to see increasing rates in the rest of the

Back in the dark ages, I did not agree with everything Gerald Ford did. I found him to be the most wonderful man, and I certainly played golf with him.

And I'm not sure that an invitation to play golf should be answered with a political

Each pregnancy loss was incredibly heartbreaking. In fact, I believe that miscarriage is one of the most painful trials a woman can go through. Yet, miscarriage is rarely discussed publicly.
