Is Ford Really This Cheap?


In today's video, analysts Brendan Byrnes and Austin Smith take a look at Ford's deceptively low price-to-earnings ratio. Brendan highlights what it is that's driving this ratio so low, and why investors should be skeptical whenever they see "Ford trading for a P/E of two." That doesn't mean the company isn't cheap, though, and Brendan still believes the company is trading at attractive multiples.
