Ford reported heavy losses in its latest quarter amid lower demand but said it won't need a bailout from the U.S. government.
Ford Motor Co. reported a fourth quarter loss of $5.88 billion or $2.46 a share compared to a loss of $3.06 billion or $1.13 per share a year earlier.
Analysts said the losses were due to a strong decline in demand for vehicles but Ford said it won't need a bailout from the Federal government.
