Ford (F -4.8%) and General Motors (GM -8.7%) are in the investor doghouse after sales rose less than expected in October. Ford posted a 6.2% bump, below forecasts, although strong SUV sales offer hope for near-term margin improvement. GM sales inched forward; inventory rose to 82 days' supply, up from 67 days in September.
