Ford sees rougher road ahead

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCE -

Ford Mo­tor Co. posted a strong sec­ond-quar­ter profit but trimmed its U.S. sales fore­cast and pre­dicted weaker re­sults in the sec­ond half as the econ­omy slowly re­cov­ers.

The au­tomaker sur­prised Wall Street, mak­ing $2.6 bil­lion in the quar­ter as it con­tin­ued to grab sales from ri­vals. Ford’s U.S. sales rose 28 per­cent in the first six months of this year. That’s al­most dou­ble the pace of in­dus­try­wide sales.
