It is trading very close to its book value, with a P/B of 1.89. The $132Billion Debt may seem like an issue for Ford, but most of this is from its Ford Credit segment– which sort of acts like a bank, providing credit facilities to customers. The true Automotive debt, is much lower, at $13 Billion, which Ford can easily manage since it has cash reserves of $24.3 Billion as per its latest financials released today. However, Ford has a mere $0.4 Billion set aside as bad debt allowance for its credit financing.|
