Ford to Halt Romania Production, RBS Slims Direct Line Stake, and 3 More Hot Stocks

Ford Motor Co. (NYSE:F): Ford will be halting its production in Romania for 13 days in October, as soft European demand forced the company to make the needed production adjustments. Ford already took a one-week break at the facility this month; the Romanian site produces the B-Max model and pushes through about 370 cars per day. Around 2,500 workers will receive 80 percent pay during stoppage.
