Mad Money Mailbag: Cruisin' With Ford

Editor's note: The following are questions received from viewers of "Mad Money," seen every day at 6 p.m. EST on CNBC.


With Ford (F) supposedly on the road to profitability, is it worth buying here?

-- Kenneth from California

Jim Cramer: I believe the company is finally making some necessary cost-cutting, and that the stock could move 50% higher over the coming quarters.


If financial, technology, and big pharma are the best sectors right now, what stocks do you believe are "best of breed?"

-- Mark from Pennsylvania

Jim Cramer: In my opinion, Cisco Systems ( CSCO) is one of the better technology stocks to own right now, because of the ramping amount of cable and telecom spending. In the financials, I have to go with Goldman Sachs ( GS), which I own in my charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS. Finally, I'd pick Genentech ( DNA), which can grow faster than any of the major traditional drug companies. With the stock more than 25% off its recent highs, the company also looks attractively valued.
