There’s been good news for Ford lately. Their credit rating has been lifted to within one level of investment grade Friday by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services. That means it will be cheaper for the company to borrow money–as soon as it has secured a new contract with workers. Ford’s credit rating was lifted from “BB-” to “BB+”. Ford’s shares also rose 48 cents and is now trading at $12.19 a share. Standard & Poor’s went on to say that they expect Ford’s operations to stay profitable next year, even with flat or slightly lower sales.

This is great news and we’re happy that Ford continues their recovery. And we’re also happy that Ford continues to demonstrate their commitment to improvement as well as a bit of fun now and then.
