Ford Motor (NYSE: F) shares are on watch following reports that the company may have lost sales in Q3 due to a "parts issue."
The WSJ noted Thursday the Ford's launch of its F-Series Super Duty Truck in late summer was delayed due to parts issues, though specifics weren't made clear.
Information comes from a UAW letter circulated to workers in Louisville, Ky, recently. The letter notes that it would be
impossible to build all the lost units in the third-quarter. The loss could have an impact on Q3 results.
Ford is said to have smoothed out the issue since then.
Shares of Ford are down 0.8 percent.
