    Ford Crosses $100 Billion in Market Value for the First Time

    Abstract:This milestone makes Ford more valuable than two of its rivals, General Motors and Rivian.

      The market capitalization of Ford Motors soared to $100 billion for the first time ever on Thursday as the automaker's electric vehicle ambitions pushed its stock to a 20-year high.

      Ford's stock spiked by as much as 4.6% to $25.59, propelling its valuation to about $102 billion as of 11:10 a.m. ET Thursday. Shares were last seen hovering around $25.39 as of 12:50 p.m. ET in New York.

      The milestone makes the 118-year-old company more valuable than rivals General Motors (roughly $90 million) and Rivian Automotive (around $75 million). However, Ford is still an order of magnitude behind Tesla's $1 trillion market cap.

      Ford's latest surge comes a week after the automaker said it would nearly double its planned production of the F-150 Lightning electric truck, which is due to be released this spring.

      The new target is for 150,000 for per year by 2023, up from a prior goal of 80,000 and an initial one of only 40,000, the Dearborn, Michigan-based firm said. The accelerated push comes after Ford received upwards of 200,000 reservations for the electric pickup, which required a $100 deposit.

      Ford has seen early success with its EV efforts, with the company also boosting the planned production of its Mustang Mach-E to 200,000 vehicles per year by 2023. But hopes are especially high for the electric version of the F-150, which is the best-selling vehicle in the US.

      Still, some investors are not as bullish when it comes to Ford's historic upturn.

      Long-time Tesla bull Cathie Wood last week said electric-forward automakers, including Tesla, are a better buy than the traditional automakers.

      “They soared on those electric vehicle announcements, think about that, that's ridiculous,” Wood said, referring to Ford and General Motors.
