Today, analysts Austin Smith and Eric Bleeker discuss what to take away from Ford's earnings report. The company saw strong domestic demand and weak results from Europe, but with a quality CEO and the right pieces in place, it should award patient investors with a solid turnaround.

Ford has been performing incredibly well as a company over the past few years -- it's making good vehicles, is consistently profitable, recently reinstated its dividend, and has done a remarkable job paying down its debt. But Ford's stock price is down over 20% over the past year. Does this create an incredible buying opportunity, or are there hidden risks with the stock that investors need to know about? To answer that, one of our top equity analysts has compiled a premium research report with in-depth analysis on whether Ford is a buy right now, and why.
