Another possibility is to evaluate

(modify-syntax-entry ?- "w")

in the buffer in which you wish to have M-F treat "-" as a word
character.

By evaluate, of course, I mean the following:

M-: (translated from <escape> :) runs the command eval-expression
  which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `simple.el'.
It is bound to M-:, M-ESC :.
(eval-expression eval-expression-arg &optional
eval-expression-insert-value)
