Back on July 28, 2008, I recommended buying a speculative stake in Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F). The stock has more than doubled in value since then, and I believe it's positioned for even more gains.
Let me tell you why.
Investing in a company as it turns around from a highly distressed situation is one of the most profitable investments one can make.
Many billionaires, like Wilbur Ross and David Tepper of Appaloosa Management LP, are masters of this style of investing. And they have the profits to prove it.
That's why I am always looking for these rare situations, which can play a very important role in a portfolio, even with a small initial investment. And right now there are a few very strong signals that the U.S. auto sector, which was demolished by the financial crisis, is going to bounce back stronger than ever.
