Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane Worldby James Cramer
Synopses & Reviews
How do we find hot stocks without getting burned? How do we fatten our portfolios and stay financially healthy? Former hedge-fund manager and longtime Wall Street commentator Jim Cramer explains how to invest wisely in chaotic times, and he does so in plain English in a style that is as much fun as investing is — or should be, when it's done right.
For starters, Cramer recommends devoting a portion of your assets to speculation. Everyone wants to find the big winners that can bring outsized gains, and Cramer explains how to allocate your portfolio so that you can afford to take this kind of risk wisely. He explains why "buy and hold" is a losing philosophy: For Cramer, it's "buy and homework." If you can't spend an hour a week researching each of your stocks, then you should hand off your portfolio to a mutual fund — and Cramer identifies the very few mutual funds that he'd recommend.
Cramer reveals his Ten Commandments of Trading (Commandment #5: Tips are for waiters). He explains why he's not afraid to compare investing to gambling (and tells you which book on gambling you should read to become a better investor). He discloses his Twenty-Five Rules of Investing (Rule #4: Look for broken stocks, not broken companies).
Cramer shows how to compare stock prices in a way that you can understand, how to spot market tops and bottoms, how to know when to sell, how to rotate among cyclical stocks to catch the big moves, and much more. Jim Cramer's Real Money is filled with insider advice that really works, information that Cramer himself used to make millions during his fourteen-year career on Wall Street.
Written in Cramer's distinctive turbocharged style, this is every investor's guide to what you really must know to make big money in the stock market.
Even after repeated boom and bust cycles on Wall Street, it's still possible to make real money in the stock market — provided investors take a disciplined approach to investing. Now with a new introduction by the author, Jim Cramer's Real Money explains how ordinary investors can prosper, no matter the climate on Wall Street.
Now in paperback, from “the media’s most electrifying market pundit” (USA TODAY): Jim Cramer tells investors how to weather the storms on Wall Street and prepare for the next bull market.
• National bestseller: Jim Cramer’s Real Money has been on the New York Times extended Advice, How-to & Misc. best- seller list, the Wall Street Journal business bestseller list, the BusinessWeek bestseller list, and the USA TODAY Top 100 list.
• In uncertain markets, investors turn to Cramer: As Wall Street has melted down, more viewers than ever have been watch- ing Jim Cramer on CNBC for advice on what to do. Cramer has warned investors about the short-term perils of the current market, but he remains bullish on stocks in the long term.
• A positive and empowering message: Cramer believes—not unlike Peter Lynch— that the average investor can make some real discoveries and can succeed as a stock picker, provided that his enthusiasm for speculative stocks—the ones that can be big winners but also often go bust—is tempered by a prudent portfolio.
