Ford (NYSE:F) stock has gained about 15% over the last week (five trading days) and remains up by about 28% over the last month (21 trading days). The recent rally follows Ford’s stronger than expected Q2 2022 results, which saw the company post earnings of $0.68 cents a share up from around $0.12 a year ago. Revenue also rose 50% year-over-year to $40.2 billion, and came in well ahead of the consensus estimates of about $35 billion. While Ford’s volumes continue to be weighed down by supply chain issues, the company is selling a higher mix of more profitable crossovers and SUVs compared to sedans and cheaper models and this is also helping margins and earnings. Ford also reiterated its full-year operating-profit guidance of $11.5 billion to $12.5 billion, while noting that it would raise its quarterly dividend to pre-Covid levels of  $0.15 per share. This could indicate that Ford is more confident about its future outlook.

However, now that Ford stock has seen a rally of about 28% over the last month, will it continue its upward trajectory in the near term, or is a pullback imminent? Going by historical performance, there is only a 41% chance of a rise in Ford stock over the next monthOut of 32 instances in the last ten years that F stock saw a twenty-one-day rise of 28% or more, 13 of them resulted in F stock rising over the subsequent one-month period (twenty-one trading days). This historical pattern reflects 13 out of 32, or about a 41% chance of a rise in F stock over the coming month, implying a negative near-term outlook for the stock.
