Bloomberg resurrects speculation that Ford (F) is preparing to promote VP of the Americas, Mark Fields, to COO as part of a plan for him to replace Alan Mulally as CEO. Ford's board discussed the succession plan at a meeting yesterday but made no decision. Mulally, 67, hasn't said when he'll retire, although he's expected to leave at the end of 2013.
