Called to Account: Ford’s earnings report may leave investors with a lot of questions

Ford Motor Co. provided Thursday one of the most unclear fourth-quarter reports seen by MarketWatch so far this earnings season, with the auto maker requiring investors to scroll down to the 12th page of the press release to see per-share results.

But that’s not all. Some other aspects of the report made it difficult to assess Ford’s performance in the latest quarter, which included an $800 million loss:

Per-share numbers for year-ago fourth-quarter results were not provided, whether based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) or not (non-GAAP).

The financial table was flipped, meaning prior full-year results were listed first, to the left of 2016 results.
