2011 EPS: $1.51

>>5 Huge Stocks Ready to Slingshot Higher

Shares of automaker Ford (F - Get Report) have tumbled from a peak of $35 in 1999 to a recent $9. To be sure, auto industry sales have yet to truly recover from the recent deep recession. That helps explain why Ford's revenue base is now lower than it was back in 2003 (though a moribund Europe doesn't help).

Still, even if the sales base has yet to recover, Ford is remarkably more profitable these days. Per-share profits handily exceed $1 these days and could move well north of $2 once the ongoing losses in Ford's European operations start to abate.

When both the U.S. and Europe's economies are healthy -- perhaps several years from now -- analysts think Ford's EPS power could hit $3. Not bad for a $9 stock.
