Smithsonian gets $500,000 for Spark! lab, Ford’s stock number, on the John Batchelor radio show

Ford gave $500,000 to Smithsonian to finish the renovation of the Spark! lab and create three more Spark! Labs in the United States. Ford said that over the years Ford Motor Company has given $10,000,000 to the Smithsonian, all in the name of education.

John Batchelor said that Ford’s stock is getting pummeled. Is that correct? Hammond disagrees and disagrees with the notion that Barclay’s downgrading Ford Motor Company. Why?

How is Ford doing globally? Hammond quotes Rebecca Lindland, IHS Automotive, and Anthony Pratt, Polk Company.
