Ford Financial Report Sources
“Ford Motors 2019 Company Analysis… For Beginners: Financial Statements and Financial Ratios: Defined, Discussed, and Analyzed for 5 Years” was written by, Paul Borosky, MBA., and owner of Quality Business Plan. In this report, I used Ford's 2018 10k, Ford's 2017 10k annual report, 2016 10k annual report, 2015 10k annual report, and Ford's 2019 10k annual report as the basis for information gathering.
Section 1: Ford Motors Income Statement Analyzed
In this section, I walk through a broad definition of what an income statement is and why it is important. From this, I then discuss and define income statement line items, such as revenues, gross profits, etc. in detail. After each line item is defined and discussed, I finally offer a summary analysis of Ford's important income statement line item trends from 2015 to 2019, in most cases.
Revenue Growth for Ford Motors:
In 2015, Ford had revenues of approximately $149.5 billion. In the next three years, the firm would grow its revenues to approximately $160.3 billion. However, in 2019, revenues fell to $155.9 billion. Overall, Ford Motors has enjoyed a moderate revenue growth rate of 1.1% over the last five years. Unfortunately, revenues did slide by almost 3% in the last year. This is quite worrisome, especially since 2019 was a time of economic expansion. From an investor's perspective, quarterly earnings should be monitored to ascertain whether revenues fall for the next year. If this is the case, then it may indicate that the company is trending lower with the revenues. This may mean reduced net profits or future cost-cutting efforts.

Section 2: Ford Motors Balance Sheet Analyzed
For Ford Motors' balance sheet, I again go through each important line item from the balance sheet. In reviewing each line item, I will define Ford's balance sheet line item, such as cash, property, plant and equipment, and liabilities between 2015 to 2019. Next, I then offer a summary analysis of Ford's important balance sheet line items.
Cash: Ford Motors ended 2015 with $14.2 billion in the bank. In the next two years, the company would increase its cash position to $18.49 billion. However, the cash position would fall in 2018 to 16.7 billion just to rebound in 2019 to $17.5 billion. This trend indicates that the organization was building a cash reserve between 2017 to 2015. However, in the last two years, the organization seems to have fluctuated its cash position. This could indicate the company is either rebuilding its cash position from 2018 after an acquisition or debt reduction. The cash fluctuation for Ford could also mean that the organization has been restructuring. The restructuring has led to an increase and then a reduction of their cash position.
From an investor perspective, if the cash increases in the next year, then this shows that the firm made some type of internal decision to reduce the cash position substantially and is in the process of rebounding. If the cash position falls, investors should be concerned about Ford's liquidity position.

Section 3: Ford Motors Financial Ratios Analyzed
For this section, I have chosen several different financial ratios to review for Ford Motors from 2015 to 2019. In reviewing each of Ford's financial ratios, I first start with defining the financial ratio. Next, I supply the financial formula for calculating the specific ratio. Finally, I offer a brief analysis of Ford's Important Financial ratios.
Ford's Current Ratio:
In 2015, Ford Motor's current ratio was 1.92. With the gold standard for the current ratio being 1.0, this indicates that the company has substantially more current assets than operations needs. From this, the organization should take action to reduce its current ratio to approximately 1.0. In the next four years, the organization would do exactly this. Between 2016 and 2019, the current ratio would fluctuate between 1.23 and 1.16, which was 2019. This shows that the organization has taken steps to better utilize its current assets.
Ford's Total Asset Turnover:
Ford ended 2015 with a total asset turnover of approximately .66. In the next four years, their total asset turnover would fall to .60 in 2019. This shows that the organization is underutilizing and continuing to utilize its total assets less year-over-year. To mitigate this problem, the organization needs to divest some of its assets, mostly fixed assets, to better align with the organization's projected sales.
Ford's Return on Assets:
As for profitability ratios, its return on assets ended 2015 at 3.28%. In the next two years, the company would fluctuate between 2.96% in 2015 and 1.94% in 2016. Unfortunately, though, in 2018 and 2019, return on assets would fall to 1.44% and .03%, respectively. This means that the company made three cents for every dollar of assets. For a manufacturer, this is a terrible position. The organization needs to divest from some of its fixed assets to better optimize total assets controlled—shame on management.
Ford's Debt Ratio:
Ford Motor’s debt ratio ended 2015 at 53.4%. In the next year, the organization would drop its debt ratio position to 39.2%. In subsequent years, the firm would hold a solid 39% debt ratio, give or take a few basis points. From an investor’s perspective, the company is doing an excellent job of keeping its debt low. This shows that the company is well-positioned to write out recessionary times. However, with interest rates being at historic lows, this also means that the company is missing out on opportunities to use debt for growth or research and development. As a shareholder, I would expect the latter as compared to the former.
