Their total revenue for the quarter that ended on December 31, 2011, was $5,683,000,000, cost of revenue was $4,815,000,000, giving a gross profit of $868,000,000. After subtracting all operating expenses, they reported net income of $25,000,000. The income available to common shareholders (Goodyear has some preferred shareholders that get dividends first) was $18,000,000. Goodyear has 245,000,000 common shares of stock outstanding. Goodyear also reported they have total assets of $17,629,000,000, total current liabilities of $5,929,000,000, total current assets of $9,812,000,000, inventory valued at $3,812,000,000, total liabilities of $16,880,000,000.

6. If their current price per share of common stock is $13.10, calculate their market capitalization (stock price x common shares outstanding)=
