1 Stock Jim Cramer Is Dead Wrong About

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes and consumer-goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin discuss one stock that Brendan thinks Jim Cramer is dead wrong about: Ford. Cramer recently put a sell rating on the stock, a call Brendan disagrees with. Ford has been on a roll lately, posting impressive profits and paying down its automotive debt by more than $20 billion. Pent-up demand in the U.S. for fuel-efficient cars should help drive sales at home, while the company's heavy investment abroad, particularly in Asia, should help drive growth for decades to come.

With Ford on track to lose money in Europe this year, many investors may be nervous about investing in a company that's internationally focused, but they shouldn't be. Emerging markets are giving new life to established American companies with deep pockets. As these industry titans look abroad for more sales, they aren't starting with a blank slate -- they're bringing their operational excellence to new markets and thriving.

    I dislike it when people simply state that Ford didn't take a bailout and leave it at that (without further explaining the situation).

    Yes, Ford didn't receive any money from the official bailout fund, but Ford did lobby Congress to bailout the entire auto industry. And Ford did that because without the bailout of the industry, it is possible that Ford might have gone bankrupt as well (instead of just having to massively dilute shareholders, like they did).

    oh what? i heard he came out with a sell on Q1 earnings day. Then a day later on his show, he flopped-flipped and said he liked $F. Especially, after their secondary offering. Maybe's he'll be back out of it toward the end of this week??

    Anyone realize how $BRCD has been acting in this volatile market???
