Well... Believe what ever investing tips you want. Invest how you like. No irresponsibility. Dig a little deeper and most of their shine and glitter rubs off...

Another statement that is flat out wrong! I never said I listen to his advice on the Mad Money show. I use mostly vanguard index etf's, and some perferred/baby bonds.

papadad111 talking about buying lending club

Perhaps this crisis has created a unique value opportunity to jump in as others run for the exits. That's what Buffett would do...

I'd be interested to put in $10-25K from my gambling account which is now sitting in cash... Into some high quality 5 year loans that I can get on the cheap via secondary market.

Even a 7% yield seems like a good yield in today's interest rate environment.

To get 5 years at 12%? 14%? Wow.

Who can advise how to sign up and get a look at secondary offerings ?

Never done the P2P lending thing, although I stayed at a holiday inn once..



Sounds just like Cramer and no that not what Buffett would do. He lets things cool down digs deep before he even thinks about it

Alaska55. I've noticed you're c/p quotes. Please take a moment to look for the "quote" button. Using the quote button makes it easier for other readers to go back and read the quoted post - since it includes a link to the former post.

Large sections of bold give me (personally) a headache.

Eh? Don't take it personally Alaska55. I wasn't replying to you specifically. Nor am I interested in picking a fight with anyone today. To quote a favorite movie, lighten up, Francis

An update to Cramerica's performance in stock picking ... published a few weeks ago:

"Yet another peer-reviewed article has assessed the stock-picking ability of Mad Money’s Jim Cramer and found it lacking. The paper was co-authored by an MBA candidate and a Ph.D. candidate in statistics at the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. They studied the complete historical performance of Cramer’s Action Alerts PLUS portfolio from 2001 to 2016, which reflects many of the stock recommendations made on his Mad Money television program.

According to an article commenting on the study in Kiplinger’s (aptly headlined “Jim Cramer’s Stock Picks Stink”), from Aug. 1, 2001 through March 31, 2016, Cramer’s Action Alerts PLUS portfolio returned a cumulative 64.5 percent, compared with 126.1 percent for the S&P 500 index, including dividends. Cramer’s portfolio was also about 5 percent more volatile than the S&P 500.

Subscribers are promised access to Cramer’s personal charitable trust portfolio and to email alerts that notify them of recommended stock moves before he acts.

Here is the published paper: http://static1.squarespace.com/stati...ttribution.pdf

Wharton MBA + PhD neither confirms nor precludes common sense.

I find Cramer to be mostly annoying, accuracy, or lack of same, notwithstanding.

However, what Cramer, and CNBC in general, advocates, i.e. that one should/can buy/sell the right stocks at the right time, and achieve outsized gains, is not the business I'm in with regard to investing.

All I do is lose with Cramer
