Is Toyota really worth fifteen times as much as Ford? Twelve times more than GM? In spite of yet another credit downgrading and a brutal session for the market, it climbed a little at the end of the week. Ford's market cap is less than $13 billion but it has $21 billion of cash and equivalents on hand. Something individual investors might want to consider. Two of the three indicators I use in my 'correlation meta-analysis' point to a recovery.
