1 Sector to Avoid in 2013

The recent recession forced many Americans to hold on to their old cars for longer, driving the average age of American vehicles on the road up to an amazing 11 years. The auto parts business was booming during that time to keep all those old cars on the road. In this video, Motley Fool analyst Austin Smith tells us why, with all the pent-up demand for new cars in the market today and the economic recovery well under way, auto parts is an area he's staying away from in 2013.

On the other side of this trend is the automakers themselves. 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. The stock has recently taken off, and it appears investors have started to notice what Ford is doing right. 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.
