Investment Updates: This morning's focus is on Ford,F, GE,GE, and Yahoo,YHOO.

Ford (F) The technical analysis for F has the 10-day simple moving average bearish and moving down after the close Friday and review of the week. There's a current stock rating of hold with a score of 3 out of 5. There were several noteworthy developments over the week including Bank of America analyst John Murphy's move that added Ford to the bank's "U.S. 1" list of top investments. Another auto supplier Magna International Inc was replaced by F in the move. The $2.4 billion reported profit in Q2 was down a small amount year on year, but the future looks bright with plans to boost sales in Asia by half in the next few years with the addition of 15 news cars in India and China.

GE (GE) There's a heavy demand for heavy machinery abroad and if General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt has his way the American worker will capitalize on it. The new chair of the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness confirmed 60 percent of GE's forecasted $145 billion in revenue for 2011 will come from foreign sources. Still nearly half of the workforce (46%) is US based and those numbers are set to rise. The workforce news has 15,000 Jobs in the U.S. on the way in the next three years.

GE also plans to revamp some of their digital capabilities to target smaller segments of their niche audience in an attempt to digitize many of their marketing drives. The shares ended the week at 15.88 with the average trading volume down over 5%.

Yahoo (YHOO): The Maktoob's dedicated Ramadan site might signal a new direction for YHOO and an exploration of a different angle. As well YHOO has launched its first Ramadan application for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Nokia Ovi users, so the change is unmistakable. The application was designed by a team from Amman, Jordan, and it takes the Ramadan web-experience mobile. It's also available for free global download on iTunes App Store and Ovi Store. YHOO closed the week at $13.59 representing a 15.76% change from the previous mark.
