Some people totally dismiss Cramer, but since his recommendations often move stocks, he canât be ignored. Yet, his flip-flop on Friday was so mind-boggling, I donât know how the market can take his calls seriously any longer: At 1:59 PM EST these were his exact words at the very end of his LIVE radio show: âCaterpillar down 9. NOT AN OPPORTUNITY. Iâd rather have you be away from that. Please be very careful with anything that is industrial or oil---those are going lower.â Then, less than forty minutes later, he appears on CNBCâs Stop Trading segment screaming that CATâs sell-off is totally overdone and that their business is on fire in China and so it is a âBUY BUY BUY!!!!â. I know he has a reputation for flip-flopping, but Fridayâs stunt takes the schizophrenic cake. It makes one wonder if he was trying to get people short so he (not him directly, but funds tipped off to what he was going to say on the TV segment) could screw the shorts when he said BUY BUY BUY forty minutes later. Can he do this because his radio show is on CBS and the TV show is on NBC? BTW, I was not in CAT, but was just amazed at the entire episode. The stock did bounce over a buck after his call to buy.
