3 Reasons to Buy Ford Stock

Despite the drop in the overall market over the past few months, Ford has been on a tear recently. The announcement that CEO Alan Mulally will remain at the company through at least 2014 certainly helps, but there are also some other compelling reasons for investors to like Ford as an investment, even after the recent run-up. A few of these include Ford's fundamentals, which still look solid, especially with its forward P/E ratio below 8. Ford is also performing very well in North America, where pent-up demand should drive increased future sales, and is investing heavily for future growth in Asia. Check out the following video for more reasons to be bullish on Ford's 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 is still trading at a very cheap multiple, both when compared with its historical ratios and when compared currently with its Japanese competitors. 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.

    I was somewhat surprised to see Ford break 11 and although Mulally is staying on as CEO ad sales in North America have been strong recently...aren't we supposed to go off a fiscal cliff. I own some Ford now but was thinking of selling some call options while it is still over 11. given that the US is presumably in for a rough month or two. Are people going to rush to car dealers when their payroll tax holiday abruptly ends and their withholding goes up, to say nothing of layed off federal workers. Cars are the largest discretionary purchase for most Americans. I don't see being long Ford unless the fiscal cliff is averted before the next congressional recess which I believe is next weekend.
