1 Good Reason to Buy Ford Now

Ford's (NYSE: F  ) turnaround has been one for the history books.

    Everyone forgets the Ford got $5.9 Billion. Nissan got $1.6 Billion to build the Leaf in Japan. Now does anyone know were Ford used the money?

    Ford's $5.9B "loan" was from the Dept. of Energy "retooling fund." The same fund that Nissan, Fisker, and Tesla also received funding to help the automakers develop and produce cutting- edge green vehicles. Ford is paying back their "loan" with interest. Due to GM's / Chrysler taxpayer funded bailout, they could not reveive funds from the funds set aside by Congress / Dept. Of Energy.

    Break-even in Europe means $1 per share additional profit! Do I smell a dividend increase by mid-decade?

    Ford used the DoE loan to upgrade a bunch of factories. It's being paid back with interest. It helped out a big US employer and taxpayers are making money on the deal. Nothing much to see here.
