In March, Ford completed its exit from the luxury car market by selling Volvo to China's Geely Automobile for $1.6 billion. Although the sale represents a sharp loss -- the company paid $6 billion for the Swedish automaker eleven years ago -- Ford posted an annual profit of $2.7 billion in 2009, its first profitable year since 2005.
Assisted by the "Cash for Clunkers" program (not to mention Toyota's accelerator woes), Ford recaptured its position as the nation's largest carmaker in February. Which is why Ford's CEO Alan Mulally can now look abroad, including big markets like India, where it recently introduced the compact Figo. --P.N.

Congratulations, Ford! You have written the case study how to turn a moribund company around ... focus ... focus .... focus. Plan. Integrate. Execute. Adjust. Innovate. Product.

Think back to 2006 - Ford was the most likely domestic auto company to bite the dust. Today in 2010 they are leaving the competition in the dust!

Kudos to Bill Ford and to Alan Mulally and to all Ford employees and fellow Ford customers! Ford succeeds because we all bleed Ford Blue and because we all care!

Can't wait for Q1 2010 profit figures.

And yes - I am a proud Ford stockholder!

Ford is really Alan Mullaly at this point, and his Board. This guy is turning into another GE's Welch. I hear they want him back at Boeing.
