There are mindsets people have when it comes to rising interest rates. If you are an investor, then you may want to see the rising interest rates because that means higher returns on products such as bonds and debt. For people who are looking to get a mortgage, car, or other type of consumer loan do not want to see higher interest rates. With that being said, Ford could begin to feel negative pressure from rising interest rates.

Ford and the Whole Auto Industry Could Be Negatively Impacted by Rising Rates

Ford manufactures automobiles and is a staple in the United States auto industry. The auto industry in this country has certainly been through quite a bit in the past several years but continues to stand tall. When looking at Ford as a potential investment, there are several macro economic areas you should think about.




First, there is the subprime lending in the auto industry that may have investors thinking twice about investing. Similar to the mortgage crisis of 2008, lenders were lending freely and this caused people who were financial unstable to obtain loans, when they should have been decline otherwise. In the auto industry, subprime lending is there but not on the scale of the mortgage crisis. However, investors need to be aware of this because if the overall market slows, there could be issues with lenders receiving payment for some of the below average note holders leading to a sector slowdown.

Next, there is the issue of maintaining brand image and Ford seems to be doing well in this category. We have all seen what happens when a brand is slammed for unsafe products in this sector, it ultimately leads to reduced sales and lower stock prices.

Lastly, Ford could be affected negatively should another economic crisis occur. Of course people say there may never be a crisis in our life time but who are we to estimate that. Many of the factors are largely out of control given how intricate our economy is. With that being said, you’ve seen how the auto industry had to be bailed out and if something happens again they could be back in that same situation.

The auto industry is certainly a well known sector and can help to diversify a portfolio, but you have to be aware of the many different factors that can affect the industry both positively and negatively. Ford is a staple and should be around for years to come. Take a look under the hood of the company and see how the financials appear. If they are well, move forward with your research. If not, look for value elsewhere as there are many investment opportunities in this industry.
