Shares of Ford could enjoy a sizable jump in the coming weeks thanks to an earnings report next week and an analyst day expected later this spring, according to Deutsche Bank.

The investment firm has a hold rating on the stock overall but added a short-term buy call ahead of Wednesday's earnings report. Deutsche Bank said in a note to clients on Thursday that Ford could be set for a significant first-quarter earnings beat.
