Editor's note: The following are questions received from viewers of "Mad Money," seen every day at 6 p.m. EST on CNBC.What is your opinion of Ford Motor (F)? How much lower can it go? -- Troy from Kentucky Jim Cramer: While I've been bullish on General Motors ( GM) since it was trading in the low-$20's this spring, I don't share the same optimism for Ford. I see the recent job cut as a move of desperation, not prudent cost controls. The U.S. automakers may continue to lose market share, but at least GM is taking the right steps to attempt to improve its situation. I'm trying to do my investing homework. How can I compare the quality of two different management teams? -- Mark from Pennsylvania Jim Cramer: This is a good question. A portion of a manager's worth is based on his track record. Past performance does not always lead to future success, but the best managers can impart many of their skills into any leadership situation. Another important measure is how the management team shapes investors' expectations to the company's ultimate performance. Over the long run, the best performing stocks do not tend to surprise their investors with bad news that often. Want more Cramer?
