You might not know what these special items are but he should DEFINITELY know if he was diligent at all
Ok, fine, i was using eps of 4.75, not using this one time adjustment. Ford has sold unprofitable companies such as Aston Martin, and Jaguar, and stopped production of Mercury. Also, in 07 and 08, they were profitable, then special taxes made them very unprofitable, and they received a special one time item which made them profitable last year which I am aware of. Please explain to me how even if revenue only grows at 1% for the next 5 years(which i believe is really conservative) the stock has a DCF value of $15 per share, also, it has a cheaper EV/REV, EV/EBITDA, and better margins than any other company in the industry. (I am in Cancun and am drinking heavily, if any of these numbers are wrong let me know)
