How Investors Should Evaluate Ford's Leadership

One of the most important things for investors to pay attention to when looking at stocks is management. A great leadership team has an enormous impact on how a company will perform in the future. In the video below, analyst Brendan Byrnes evaluates Ford's leadership team, led by CEO Alan Mulally. Mulally made the prescient decision to borrow over $23 billion in 2006 before the credit markets dried up, and much of Ford's recent success can be attributed to decisions he has made.

Mulally will retire sometime after 2014, at which time current COO Mark Fields will likely take his place at the helm of the company. Watch the video below for more on how Fields is expected to run the company in a few years.
