In today's video, analysts Brendan Byrnes and Austin Smith take a look at Ford's deceptively low price-to-earnings ratio. Brendan highlights what it is that's driving this ratio so low, and why investors should be skeptical whenever they see "Ford trading for a P/E of two." That doesn't mean the company isn't cheap, though, and Brendan still believes the company is trading at attractive multiples.
Yet, as cheap as this company is, many investors are left wondering, what's going on with Ford's stock price?
