as mentioned in EBITDA margin has been between 8.75-12.75%, which is quite strong for a company operating in the automotive industry.
The ratio of operating cash flow per share to the share price is 2.5x.
The company has an immensely strong financial position and robust profitability which are not reflected by the stock price.
It is looking increasingly likely that the fundamental growth from Asia-Pacific and a possible turnaround in Europe will finally push the stock price higher.
After North America, Asia-Pacific is the region with the highest operating margin (5.2%) for the company and any high-end product growth will further push this operating margin towards the North American figure of 9.7%.

Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F ) has announced that it is launching a sensor capable of detecting a pothole.

Ford Is Wasting $1 Billion – Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F)
Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) is attempting to get ahead of peers by making a $1 billion investment in Argo AI over the course of five years.
While some politicians have embraced the idea of driverless cars (like the Ohio Republican legislature and governor), smart political figures will fight this.
The engineers developing the technology for driverless cars are not the demographic Ford is looking to sell F-150’s and Focus’ to.
Many of the benefits of level 4 driverless cars (reductions in accidents and fatalities) can be experienced with level 3 automation.
That is why Ford is making a strategic miscalculation by bypassing level 3 technology in exchange for the $1 billion investment in level 4.
