Ford sees rougher road ahead
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.
