I don't watch it. It is a little too theatrical for me. But I typically do not watch financial TV much outside of the NBR wrapup.

I invest in mutual funds...

I can take Cramer only in small doses. His voice can grate and his theatrics are either humorous or annoying ...depending.
The last year or two it seems after he or the people on Fast Money tout a stock...or have a CEO on touting his/her own stock....the stock goes down. I've actually considered it a contrarian signal.
That said...I don't invest just because anyone like that says so. After all...they are trying to report and make "news". By the time we hear about it....the real moves have often already occurred.

With Cramer, A Little....

goes a long way IMO. I've only seen his show a dozen times or so. Somebody gave me one of his books and I read it. Confirmed my thoughts that Cramer makes money doing his show, selling his books and making appearances rather than making money on the stock market. If he was/is one of the best hedge fund managers why did he stop?

So I was surprised last year during the week of Thanksgiving to see Cramer list 10 stocks that are good long-term, dividend paying, potential growth companies. That's right up my alley. Nearly all the stocks he mentioned are in my portfolio and I like them for their income and growth - PG, JNJ, CAT, MO and several others. Unfortunately I cannot find the list I jotted down. I'd like to pass it along to others.

I watch him and don't understand half of what he says, because he is playing with his noisemakers and jumping around topics so quickly. irritating is what I think. I wish there was someone on tv that could analyze stocks and make it clear why he either approves or disapproves of those stocks.

Your comment made me think of the Friday evening program that aired on PBS for years - Wall Street Week with Louis Rukeyser. PBS has a few similar shows but nothing compares to WSW IMO.

Louis Rukeyser died several years ago but I noticed a web site that seems to be carrying on his traditiion. I'll have to check it out. If the web site is anything at all like Rukeyser it is the antithesis of Cramer.

Entertaining in small doses but never a source of stock picks.

If he was really a good trader, he would still be doing that and making a ton of money. He might be the highest paid clown on the airwaves these days.........

why would he go back to trading when he can make tons of money because there are dummies out there like me that watch once in a while, and he has no risk?
