What is it about Cramer?



August 18, 2009 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: GE , TST , FOX

Maybe it's because I don't have cable, but I don't watch much financial TV. So it's always a bit jarring when I come across Jim Cramer's show on the Internets. On the one hand, I don't see how anyone can take this guy seriously. On the other hand, it's more interesting than watching another suit being interviewed by another suit. I love the sound effects. And Cramer certainly has some brain power -- he graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, says Wikipedia -- though that's not the same as thing as predictive power. 


Side note: I love when people in the media complain about the media. It's like a politician railing against "special interests" at a $1,000-a-plate fundraiser.

We are in the same boat. I have no cable, local, or any other channel, but when I go to lunch, somtimes I see this guy and he makes me laugh. I wouldn't know how to digest all the BS that is on the show though, so I am not interested in his picks I guess.

I would prefer Cramer in a suit like eveybody else. All this screaming, jestures and sound effects make my head hurt in the short 30 seconds that pass until I find the remote to turn it off.
