    What happened

    Shares of Ford Motor Co.

    So what

    Ford shares were up less than 10% for the month prior to April 25, when the company reported first-quarter earnings of $0.44 per share, easily besting the $0.26-per-share analyst consensus. North America led the way with strong pickup and commercial vehicle sales, and the company's European operations returned to profitability.

    The numbers weren't all great. Ford is still losing money in South America and China, and although Ford is selling a more profitable mix in North America, overall sales there did fall 5%. The company also recorded a whopping $592 million in one-time charges, with most of that total tied to plant closures and other cost cuts in Europe and South America.

    Yet it remains at $10 a share. If not for the Ford family owning a majority of the shares they may have been bought out already.

    Ford is still in danger and they will need to continue to cut cost and increase ATP. They may still partner more with a VW to cut cost.
