Ford (NYSE: F) has been a big winner this year as the company is making progress in the electric vehicle market and as profits have boomed following a rough 2020. An end to the semiconductor shortage should boost Ford, along with other automakers. In this segment of "The Five" recorded on Nov. 23, Fool contributors Connor Allen and Jason Hall discuss why Ford is well-positioned to capitalize on improvements in the semiconductor supply chain.
Let's explore why its industry-leading brands and dirt-cheap valuation make it a top stock to buy in December. Ford has turned this trend into an opportunity to reinvent itself, committing $30 billion to make 40% of its sales electric by the end of the decade. Well, unlike General Motors and Tesla, which are building a diverse lineup of EV models that includes sedans, Ford will focus on segments it already dominates, such as the F-150 truck, transit vans, and Mustang sports car (now adapted for a crossover SUV).
Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) continued to push forward in November, beating the market with a 12.4% increase in its stock price, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence. As of Dec. 3, Ford was trading at about $19 per share and was up about 117% year to date (YTD). Ford's stock price did something in November that it hasn't done in about 20 years -- it closed at over $20 per share.
