Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) today revealed financial details that could give Wall Street a better understanding of how profitable its evolving electric vehicle (EV) business is.

On an operating basis, the automaker's EV business lost $2.1 billion last year, offset by $10 billion in profits from its internal combustion and fleet units. The company expects to lose $3 billion this year, though it still anticipates achieving an 8% pretax margin by late 2026. 

Ford Motor stock is edging higher ahead of the open, last seen up 1.7% at $11.67. After briefly breaking above its 20-day moving average earlier this month, the trendline is once again providing resistance on the charts, as is the $12 area. Year-to-date, F sports a small 3.7% lead.

For those wanting to weigh in, options look like the right route, with traders pricing in low volatility expectations. This is per the stock's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 41% that sits higher than just 24% of annual readings.

It's also worth noting F's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) ranks at 75 out of 100, suggesting it has exceeded options traders' volatility expectations over the past year.
