it's time to short.How can Ford be worth more now than in 2004-2007?? Is it do to GM'S offering at $25 ish ?? One cannot compare the two. Ford = 3.44 b. shares and GM is talking 365 m. shares??? GLTA. It's been a good run from .97!!!!
It's not about share price, it's about PE. Do the math and if you need a calculator, then let me know. Quite frankly, F is done with the legacy employees while GM still has that over hang...
Let the rest of the company stand on its own merit...

RRRrrrr rrrrrrr rrrrrrr 'START YOUR ENGINES' Like I have been saying for the last 2 years. Next to God, Mr. Bill Ford and Mr Mulally siteth at the right hand of God and they fear no evil. The beginning is "Just Begun". Check Boeing history and see what Mr. Mulally did there. Right now Ford is 5 laps ahead of the field and Mr. Mulally says 2011 that we will shift to high gear. MY MY MY< what he must have in mind.. Bless you all
It should be obvious to most professional investors at this level. As of today, we are up to an enterprise value for Ford of:
This compares to an "effective" enterprise value for GM of:
That is GM's estimated IPO enterprise value of $65 billion, subtracting the inherent value of the government's $45 billion forward tax gift.
There were originally 500 million shares for GM common stock that they plan to triple-split for 1.5 billion. The EV is the market cap (1.5 billion x share price) plus debt less cash. The valuation disjunction will have to be resolved one way or another (Ford down or GM up).
2004-2007 bad years for car industry - companies have retooled and slimmed down - can't compare times - it is all up from here on with maybe a few setbacks but this stock will prevail.
wrong - oil prices will break out soon, and continue to staircase up, crushing demand for automobiles. Ford's debt-trap to finally spring, ending it as an entity. I guess it will be merged into government motors at that point, but I reckon the foreign factories will go to China, while ours rust over, somewhere in Michigan
"babeez" "biggest running joke". Find a building with a long reflective window at sidewalk level. Then start at the right side and run to the left, looking to the right as you run one side to the other. Bless you good buddy! Peace.
Well, Sorry if .97 makes you mad. I remember as if it were yesterday talking on the phone to a friend about F and that is was down to .97 He said DON'T buy, they WILL go BK. I BOUGHT anyway. So you fools go ahead FIGHTING away over the scraps ! I jsut sold. BYE BYE !
also....your math is flawed and your facts....you better spend some time on research before you throw those way wrong figures on gm shares. My take.....you better take some investing classes and quick
You asked some really good questions..........The questions are easily aswered. I wont waste my time telling you. If you had done 30 mins of work you would know the answers. Sufice it to say...things change. Trade by price alone and you will be broke. Apply your same silly questions to apple......should they be worth the same as then??.WHY??...Now you have your answer
