Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Invest In Right Now

In this article I will point out some of the things that should bother Ford Shareholders. I’ll make some recommendations. I will also compare Ford (NYSE:F) to General Motors (NYSE:GM), and their treatment towards Shareholders.

Introduction:

Ford is one of the world’s largest automobile manufactures. Annually, over the last four years they’ve averaged $148 billion in revenue, and around $6 billion in net-profit. This is not a high margin business. However, the business has been consistently and solidly profitable since the great recession. The consistent earnings however have done NOTHING for the Share price. As a matter of fact the Share price is down 30% over the last three years.

With the Shares trending ever-downwards, I think it is time for Ford to consider some new / different strategies:

Buybacks:

I think it is time for Ford to consider MASSIVE stock buybacks. What could be more sensible than buying your own company stock when it is trading at a huge discount to intrinsic value? Shouldn’t the Ford management team (and family) should be familiar enough with the company to understand that it is deeply undervalued?! And, they have $17 billion per year (three year average) coming in Operating cash-flow!
