With Ford being a global player with many different products, there are several things to keep an eye on with the company. One bright spot for Ford is how it has been performing in China lately. This is obviously a massive market, and investors need to keep an eye on whether Ford can keep its momentum going as it tries to compete with the market-share leaders in the country.

Two other areas to keep an eye on are F-150 sales as GM releases its new pickup trucks this summer, and Europe, which continues to be a money-losing machine, a situation that Ford is trying to turn around. Check out the video below for more insight on things you need to watch as a Ford investor.
