Stock No. 4: Ford ( F) may not sound like a winter-weather stock, but the company makes internal combustion engines for far more than just Mustangs and F-150s.
The fact is that Ford remains one of the largest engine suppliers for top privately held generator companies like Generac and Kohler. Ford is a great stock to buy right now for a number of reasons: It's gobbling up market share from bankrupt GM and Chrysler and is benefiting from uncertainty over Toyota ( TM) vehicles in the wake of the recent recalls. The generator angle provides just one more reason to like Ford stock right now.
