Trade With Jim Cramer With New ETF

Anyone who regularly watches or has only seen Jim Cramer’s TV show “Mad Money” even just once notices that the former fund manager, now a TV personality, makes a ton of stock recommendations while on air.

So many that it is hard to keep up with what companies he likes and which ones he would sell.

Luckily, you will now never have to worry about trying to keep track of his stock picks while he is on air. Two new Exchange Traded Funds will keep track of his stock picks for you and not only keep track of them but give you an accessible, one-stop investment vehicle you can use to follow his advice.

The Tuttle Long Cramer Tracker ETF (LJIM) buys stocks that Jim Cramer tells his viewers on “Mad Money” that he likes. The fund managers also follow Jim on Twitter, so if he tweets that he is optimistic about a stock, the fund can also track those picks. Furthermore, LJIM will also short stocks that Cramer expresses a negative opinion on.

LJIM began trading on March 2nd of, 2023, with an expense ratio of 1.2%. The fund already has over $254 million in assets. The top ten holdings represent 31% of the fund.

However, the fund prospectus explains that LJIM will have a portfolio of between 20 to 50 stocks.

Therefore, the heavy concentration will likely always be present with LJIM. Finally, the balance between each stock held is very close, with most holdings representing just slightly above or below the 3% mark.

The fund holds a very diverse group of stocks. The largest sector is technology, with 18% of assets. Then electronic technology makes up 14.78% of assets. Health technology, consumer services, and finance round out the top five sectors in LJIM.

LJIM is a worthy investment if you are a disciple of Jim Cramer and want to own the stocks he recommends to TV viewers and social media followers. Continue reading "Trade With Jim Cramer With New ETF"

Jim Cramer Actually Got It Right... Only, Three Months Later?

It's no secret that we've been socked with snow this past week. During that time, I was flipping through channels and came across Jim Cramer's show Mad Money. I've said this before, Jim is a great entertainer. I am not so sure how good he is at picking stocks.

He mentioned shorting one stock, Garmin (symbol GRMN). What he said about Garmin sort of made sense to me both from a technical and fundamental viewpoint.

So here is the fundamental viewpoint... Many of the new phones that are coming to market are referred to as "smart phones" and have the same capabilities as a standalone, turn-by-turn GPS. In my own case, I have an Apple iPhone. I was looking for a navigational application in the App Store and found exactly what I needed and the good news was - it was free, that's right free. So the question is, why would anyone pay $150, $200, or even $300 to Garmin to have one of their systems? Fundamentally, I think his case is very sound.

Then, I looked at the technical picture for Garmin and noticed that we had a red monthly "Trade Triangle" sell signal some time ago (November 4th to be exact at the price point $27.06). So here we are some three to four months later having Jim Cramer tell us that Garmin may be a short.

For my money, I want to be trading the "Trade Triangles" and not listening to Jim Cramer and getting old news.

In this short video on Garmin, you will see exactly what were looking at and where the signals kick in. I also point out where one very important technical indicator is at a tipping point.

I hope you enjoy the video and make a comment on the blog about how you feel about this market.

Jim Cramer Throws In The Towel

Last week I wrote a blog on Jim Cramer's recessionary stock picks. This blog posting showed the five stocks that he thought would be recession proof and ones that he would suggest you buy. This was on the 8th of January, 2009.

I just happened to tune into Mr. Cramer's show on Thursday night. He basically announced that he was throwing in the towel and that it would be best to get out of these positions.

So let's see how he did with his picks. All of his hypothetical stocks purchases were made on the 8th of January using the closing price.

Caterpillar: Purchased at $44.08 - Sold at $31.58
Home Depot: Purchased at $24.38 - Sold at $22.12
Johnson & Johnson: Purchased at $59.02 - Sold at $58.18
Hewlett - Packard Co.: Purchased at $37.61 - Sold at $36.13
Verizon Communications: Purchased at $32.42 - Sold at $30.45

Here's what we are going to do... we'll take the closing price last  (1/08/09), and the opening of January 30th to see just how Mr. Cramer's recessionary  stock picks worked out. The good news is that Mr. Cramer was five for five. The bad news is, those five stock positions lost money.

I have often said that I am a fan of Mr.Cramer, as he is a very entertaining man. I've also have commented that he never places a stop loss on any position that I've seen. If you have other information to the contrary, please share it with me and the readers of this blog.

Here are the results:

Caterpillar (NYSE_CAT) lost: $12.50 / 28.35%
Home Depot (NYSE_HD) lost: $2.26 / 9.26%
Johnson & Johnson (NYSE_JNJ) lost: $0.84 / 1.42%
Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE_HPQ) lost: $1.48 / 3.93%
Verizon Communications (NYSE_VZ) lost: $1.97 / 6.07%

I have to say this is not an impressive lineup of stock picks. By using our "Trade Triangle" Technology, you would have avoided all of these stock picks that Mr. Cramer recommended. So here's my challenge to you: if you watch Mad Money, always check with our technology to see whether you should be purchasing a stock or just standing aside. I think you'll be amazed at the improved results.

Every success in the markets,

Mad Money vs Trade Triangles ... which is better for you?

Every once in a while, I like to flip the TV channels and watch Jim Cramer on CNBC. It's not that I think that Jim Cramer is a spectacular trader, I just think he is a talented and amusing guy. The last time I tuned on the tube, CNBC's Jim Cramer was naming his top five picks to get you through these recessionary times.

So with pencil in hand, I quickly scribbled down his top five stock picks on a piece of paper and shoved it into my pocket. I actually forgot about Mr. Cramer's picks until today when I found this crumpled piece of paper with my handwriting on it. This paper listed the five stocks that Mr. Cramer picked on the close of business on January 8.

So here are Mr Cramer's top 5 picks and where they closed on 1/08/09:

Fire your broker and make money!!

Fire your broker and take control of your own money ... and stop listening to Jim Cramer unless you want to lose more money.

We are serious. According to BARRON'S magazine Cramer has been consistent in one thing and that is underperforming the markets. This is the same guy who recommended buying Wachovia and we all know how that turned out!!

Check out this new FOX TV ad. FOX did not pay us a penny to run this YouTube ad on our blog, we just thought that it really said what a lot of us already know. The king (Cramer) has no clothes.

There is a simple antidote to market chaos and bad advice from your broker or Jim Cramer's putrid picks and that is Try it out and check out our track record. If a positive road map and positive returns in turbulent times makes sense to you then try out a 30 day risk free trial to MarketClub.

I am betting you will be glad you did.
