Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) will join the number of auto stocks reporting earnings this week after the close tomorrow, Oct. 26. It looks like the security is getting a halo lift from an upbeat report from sector peer General Motors (GM). F was last seen up 3.1% to trade at $12.87 as it extends its rally off its early October lows near the $11 region. 

The security's 1,000-day moving average has been a dependable area of support since F broke above it in January 2021. In fact, this trendline has been the catalyst of several rebounds on the charts since then. That doesn't mean F is totally in the clear, though. Several moving average still hover as potential resistance, including the 200-day trendline, which rejected Ford stock's mid-August rally.

A look at analyst sentiment shows a tepid attitude toward Ford Motor stock. Of the 16 in coverage, 11 say "hold" or worse. Meanwhile, short sellers have been piling on, up 23.8% in the last two reporting periods. 

Short-term options traders, on the other hand, have rarely been more call-biased. This is per F's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 0.67, which sits higher than just 1% of readings from the past year. 

Speaking of options, traders are pricing in an 8.6% post-earnings swing for Ford Motor stock, regardless of direction. This is larger than the 5.4% move F averaged after its last eight reports. The security has a mixed post-earnings history, settling higher after five of its last eight reports over the past two years.
