It is shown that a homogeneous two-component Fermi gas with (long-range) dipolar and short-range isotropic interactions has a ferronematic phase for suitable values of the dipolar and short-range coupling constants. The ferronematic phase is characterized by having a nonzero magnetization and long-range orientational uniaxial order. The Fermi surface of the spin-up (-down) component is elongated (compressed) along the direction of the magnetization.
