Somewhere in the great beyond, old Henry is smiling. While bankruptcy looms for sister companies General Motors (GM - Get Report) and Chrysler, Ford's (F - Get Report) report on Friday of lower-than-expected losses had investors shooting the stock uphill like a 400 horsepower Mustang. At the time of this writing, Ford shares were up more than 15%.Why all the happiness about a $3.7 billion loss? Ford CEO Alan Mulally told reporters that the company is "turning the tide in North America" and also announced that the company plans to increase production by 25% this summer to meet demand -- all without a government bailout. Those are good signs for the bulls with respect to both Ford and the broader economy.
