Ford's Mulally to Stay as CEO Through at Least 2014

Ford  (NYSE: F  ) announced today that President and CEO Alan Mulally will continue to lead the company through at least 2014.

Mulally has served as CEO since 2006, and is credited with bringing the company from the brink of bankruptcy to profitability in 2009. Ford also announced Mark Fields as its new COO, effective Dec. 1. He has served as executive VP and President of the Americas for the past seven years, and has been with Ford since 1989.

According to a Ford press release, Mulally will continue to head up long-term strategic development of the One Ford plan, while Fields will focus on business operations .

"Today marks an important next step in the profitable growth of the Ford Motor Company," said Executive Chairman Bill Ford. "We are fortunate to have Alan's continued leadership as well as talented senior leaders throughout our company who are developing and working together and delivering on our plan ."

Alan Mulally has helped Ford perform incredibly well 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 seems stuck in neutral. Does this create an incredible buying opportunity, or are there hidden risks with the stock that investors need to know about?
