CEO: Alan R. Mulally
Was this company a 2011 top stock?

Alan Mulally, Ford's chief, is credited with gracefully navigating the American icon through one of the most disastrous periods in the U.S. auto industry's history. The former Boeing executive's most important leadership achievement took place when Ford avoided bankruptcy, the tarnishing fate that befell rivals General Motors and Chrysler in 2009. Had Ford been forced to file, the Ford family almost certainly would have lost their controlling interest. The company's stock has resumed paying a dividend during Mullaly's tenure and, more importantly, the firm is pumping out lust-worthy cars again. Profits jumped 208% last year -- growth in league with the world's oil and tech giants, not other car makers.
