This uptrend have been fueled by Fords’ plans to increase production of electric vehicles, including the Mustang Mach-E crossover and an upcoming electric version of its best-selling F-150 pickup that is expected in Q2. Last week, the company said it plans to “nearly double” annual production capacity of its upcoming electric F-150 pickup to 150,000 vehicles per year at a plant in Michigan.

Recently, BofA Securities (Bank of America) analyst John Murphy raised the Ford price target to $26 a share, up from $22, citing the automaker’s production increase. In a note to investors, he called it “an encouraging proof point” in the company’s previously announced Ford+ turnaround strategy.

One day before General Motors, Ford Motors is scheduled to reveal an electric version of its Chevrolet Silverado. The pickup is expected to compete more directly with the F-150 Lightning than its GMC Hummer EV, which recently started shipping to consumers. The Silverado sales will start only next year.
