Better Buy: Ford vs. GM

Today, analysts Brendan Byrnes and Austin Smith discuss whether Ford or GM looks like a better buy today. Both stocks feature incredibly cheap valuations right now, but Ford managed to keep its product development chain moving smoothly by avoiding bankruptcy back in 2008. GM currently leads Ford in Chinese market share, but Ford is looking to close the gap.

Ford's story is pretty amazing. It 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 more than 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.
