I went to the story as well. Thbe AP story was nice enough to let us know it will be two more years before Ford "has a shot" at making money.

How much of this news- huge loss and no EPS for two years, that readers of this board were aware of/or expected, is already in the stock price? Will F slide slowly down, will F stay flat until the dividend comes back, or will F start to move up on good news from here like UAW concessions in the next contract, favorable comps YOY on auto or truck sales?

Since last summer, I thought the price of F recovered more than it should have given the pending news for the yearend results. Wasn't F's market cap back in the summer about the size of the 2006 loss?

Anyone have any thoughts? Did the market price the year-end numbers we are seeing about 6 months ago? And with the company - I know its possible that F could do WORSE - but won't there inherently be improvement in the '07 numbers because of the charges taken in 06 for reductions and closings? And if so, is the market going to react more to the size/type of loss or will it react more to the actual sales numbers?
