In today's edition, Motley Fool analyst Brendan Byrnes takes a look at the reasons why one might want to sell one's shares of Ford (NYS: F) . Brendan is a Ford shareholder and remains bullish on the company, but he describes why it's a useful exercise to play devil's advocate to find reasons you might want to sell stocks in your portfolio. For Ford, one big reason is Europe. The company will lose at least $1.5 billion on the continent this year, with around the same loss projected for next year. Another reason that investors might want to sell the stock is the fact that the company is playing catch-up in the world's biggest auto market, China. Check out the video below for more reasons that one might want to sell Ford, and Brendan's conclusion on why he remains confident in the stock.

Ford has been performing incredibly well as a company over the past few years -- it's making good vehicles, is consistently profitable, recently reinstated its dividend, and has done a remarkable job paying down its debt. But Ford's stock still trades at a remarkably cheap seven times forward earnings. Does this create an incredible buying opportunity, or are there hidden risks with the stock that investors need to know about? To answer that, one of our top equity analysts has compiled a premium research report with in-depth analysis on whether Ford is a buy right now, and why.
