    Ford Motor Co. is planning substantial job cuts in order to boost profits and raise its stock price, according to the Wall Street Journal. (Published Tuesday, May 16, 2017)

    The Wall Street Journal reports that Ford Motor Co. is planning substantial job cuts in order to boost profits and raise its stock price.

    The newspaper says the cuts would target salaried employees and would reduce Ford's global headcount by an equivalent of 10 percent.

    Ford didn't confirm the report Monday night.

    In a statement, the company said it's focused on reducing costs and improving efficiency. But Ford said it hasn't announced any job cuts and won't comment on speculation.
