Ford's Q3 impresses

Operating margin during the period rose 70 bps to 7.0%.

The automaker's pre-tax loss in Europe narrowed significantly to $228M as Ford improved its market share on stronger volume.

The biggest takeaway from Ford's report is that the company expects 2013 profits to be higher than 2012. (PR)
