Ford stock (NYSE:F) has declined by around 17% over the last month, underperforming the S&P 500 which remains down by roughly 6% over the same period. There are a couple of factors weighing Ford’s stock down. Firstly, the semiconductor and component supply issues following the Covid-19 reopening have hurt Ford’s overall deliveries in recent quarters, while also putting pressure on its costs. For example, over the first quarter of this year, Ford’s revenues were about 15% below 2019 levels. Ford has also issued recalls for around 3 million vehicles in the U.S. and Canada recently and this could also be impacting the stock. Moreover, there are macroeconomic concerns as well. With inflation surging, the Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates at a more aggressive pace, with another 0.75% rate hike likely around the corner. Higher rates could hurt economic growth in the U.S. while impacting rate-sensitive, cyclical sectors such as the automotive industry.

However, now that F stock has seen a decline of about 15% over the last month, will it continue its downward trajectory in the near term, or is a rally imminent? Going by historical performance, there isn’t a very strong chance of a rise in F stock over the next monthOut of 100 instances in the last ten years that Ford stock saw a twenty-one-day decline of 15% or more, 46 of them resulted in F stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days). This historical pattern reflects 46 out of 100, or a 46% chance of a rise in F stock over the coming month, implying a negative near-term outlook for the stock.
