We seem to have firm Europe loss number which was my number one concern going into this earnings report. -- MjH

Personally, I'm kind of ignoring the European financial results until they complete this re-organization of production facilities because I don't think near term results mean much. I'm very much interested in sales and market share there though..... which continue to not look good.

And, I'm concerned with the South American results. I really should try to find more info there because I don't really understand what happened to turn this great profit center into a pig. Yeah, increased competition is a large part of it, but I'd like more info.

Asia is starting to look like it might be getting traction and I'm eager to see how that progresses.

It's perhaps unrealistic to expect Ford to be doing well everywhere (due to variances in economic cycles), but if they can do so the results would be impressive indeed.
