About Cramer's show  Reply with quote  

There's this thing called a disclaimer at the beginning of his show. It says that your investments may lose significant value and that he is not responsible for any losses you may incur. As a responsible investor, you have to realize that this is simply a TV show. Take a look at the 52-week ranges of nearly every stock he recommends. They're almost all at the top of their ranges. If you're going to watch his show, pay attention to the advice that he gives and the reasons he gives for the sectors/stocks that he likes. It's actually good advice, but it just comes too late. The specific stocks that he recommends aren't the best ones in those fields. I'm not saying he doesn't know what he's talking about - the man worked for Goldman Sachs and went to Harvard - he's a genius - but you still have to make decisions for yourself, not let him do it. After all, what does he have to lose? It's his TV show. He does this for the ratings - he couldn't care less about what happens to your money.

Keep in mind his job now is to sell air, that's right ad space. He picks stock with the most hype and touts them. He has an overprised education and seems to leave out all the negatives in his career profile. The only thing he is good at is yelling and selling air.

You make a good point. Cramer has such a big influence on his viewers that they buy just based on his comments. If you listen to the comments the people make who call him, some are very astute in what they say. If anyone has read "Confessions of a Street Addict", you will understand that he is obsessed with the market. It is wise to do your own "homework" as he states. There is a member here that has a link to Cramer's picks. It is interesting to see what the track record of his picks are. The only negative thing I can say about his show is that he gives too many buy recommendations, otherwise his show is great.

I personally think apple will almost always be a bad buy..
The main apple customer is schools, it just isn't popular enough.

A few points. First, if you read back thru the thread, you'll find that Cramer himself keeps his own track record on his site. I praised that.

If you read back, you'll also see that I read his latest tome. I didn't praise that.

The show gives alot of buy recommendations cause he can't get sued for that. Telling people to sell a company tends to "bother" that company, particularly if it results in a loss of shareholder "value". As we have seen, his voice alone can significantly raise or lower the equity price.

Yes i agree it is impressive he has some impartial trackers. another site that i watch that lists his stock picks is www.cramers-mad-money.com
