Making money from "Mad Money"
    #11287614 - 10/20/09 10:55 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Seems as though if you're on Mr. Cramer's show representing your company, your stock will, at least temporarily, shoot up, since he will probably have favorable things to say to someone who appears on his show.  So can you make money regularly if you buy stock from companies whose representatives are interviewed on "Mad Money"?  I'm talking about buying the stock the SECOND you find out who is on the show.

Also, when is the absolute earliest that you can find out who is on the show?

You will not be able to find out who he's bringing on the show during the normal trading hours prior to the show; especially if its the CEO of a company with a stock that has a relatively small float and can therefore be more drastically manipulated during the thin trading that occurs in the after-hours market, when his show airs.  He can also choose to show certain interviews during the second half of his show, once the after-hours trading market has closed for the day (6:30pm EST).

Even if there is a pop during after-hours trading, it is unlikely that it will carry over significantly into the following trading day when volume picks up.  It is pert near impossible to get in on a trade as the show is airing, since there is a very small volume of shares up for sale in after-hours, and the spread between the bid and ask is relatively wide.  Therefore, even if you're the first bidder for the stock once you realize what company is going to be featured, you won't get your hands on many shares before the asking price is way high and you end up having to bid up the share price to secure additional stock.

Just take a look at which price the majority of shares change hands at when the show airs (not the first two or three prices that are shown, 'cause you'll never be that guy!)... and then watch that stock the following day.  Odds are, if you make a buy after-hours on the hype, you won't be able to sell for a profit the next morning.

Cramer's show is about ideas.  He does a lot of the initial homework for you, to introduce you to good ideas with a moderate to long-term thesis.  I would not use the vast majority of his recommendations as quick trades, but rather hone in on the ideas that make sense to you; then combine that knowledge with technical chart analysis in order to deliberately plan your entry points.

Thanks Geo.  I knew you'd respond!  What you say makes sense.  :mushroom2:

Did Cramer warn his viewers about the financial crisis before it happened?

Cramer told his viewers to buy financials during the collapse to engineer a bubble that he then profited on by shorting financials.

The guy is a crook and has been caught on TV talking about engineering bubbles and creating "false hype" while he (while managing his hedge fund) would short said stock knowing that the hype is fake and the bubble is bursting.

People like Cramer who convince people they can beat the market do nothing but cause financially uneducated people to waste their money.  The problem with any active trading strategy is that transaction costs begin to eat into any abnormal returns quickly.  Best way to invest in the market imo is with a well diversified passive portfolio to capture long term equity gains.  If you really enjoy the stock market, I suspect it would be okay to play with some money in an active portfolio, too, to supplement gains and have some fun.

But yeah, F Cramer.

Anyone read his book? It's pretty insightful, actually.
