Ford Management Efficiency

Ford Motor has return on total asset of 2.93 % which means that for every 100 dollars spent on asset, it generated profit of $2.93. This is way below average. Similarly, it shows return on equity (ROE) of 29.39 %, implying that it made 29.39 on every $100 invested by shareholders. Ford management efficiency ratios could be used to measure how well the company manages its routine affairs as well as how well it operates its assets and liabilities. Ford Return on Average Assets are projected to slightly decrease based on the last few years of reporting. The past year's Return on Average Assets were at 0.07. The current year Return on Invested Capital is expected to grow to 0.07, whereas Return on Average Equity is forecasted to decline to 0.44. Ford Current Assets are projected to increase significantly based on the last few years of reporting. The past year's Current Assets were at 109 Billion. The current year Assets Non Current is expected to grow to about 158.8 B, whereas Tax Assets are forecasted to decline to about 12.6 B.
The company has accumulated 130.23 B in total debt with debt to equity ratio (D/E) of 2.94, indicating that the company relies heavily on borrowing. Ford Motor has a current ratio of 1.14, implying that it is not liquid enough and may have problems paying out its interest payments when they become due. Debt can assist Ford until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Ford's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Ford Motor sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Ford to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Ford's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.

The market value of Ford Motor is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Ford that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Ford's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Ford's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Ford's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Ford's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Ford's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine Ford value by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Ford's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
