So last spring the Bev Hills billionaire bought 140.8 million shares in the automaker for $1 billion, or around $7.10 a share. On Monday, he sold 7.3 million shares at an average price of about $2.43. If he sold his entire stake at about that same price, he would have lost about $666 million, according to the NYT's Cyrus Sanati. That's just his latest shellacking - the NY Post reported a couple of weeks back - before Ford - that his stock fortune had plunged from a high of $16.6 billion to just $3.1 billion (besides Ford, he's taken huge hits at MGM Mirage and Delta Petroleum).
