I have noticed lately that Jim Cramer's "Speculative Fridays" make excellent short term trades. CVTX seemed to keep going up for a few days after he picked it and now its OMTR. There have been a few others too. Its very important to note, however, that I dont believe in holding these picks for more then a few days. I just like to get in around 10:30-11:00 on Monday on the dip and then ride them up, dump them late Tuesday or early Weds. In this last year, Cramer has actually done very well with his calls. If you got in on some of the more talked about picks, then you would see a profit. Now with any discussion involving Jim Cramer, I have to point out the fact that those stocks that crash are never mentioned again or mentioned again during an apology episode. There are many bad calls that he has made in the past. Here is one good recent example. IOTN. It makes an energy beam system. If you got in when Cramer said to get in, then you would be looking at a 50% loss. Another stock is FRO. He told his viewers to get out of the stock immediately when it was in the low 30s and now the stock is in the mid 40s a few months later. So in this thread, every Friday, I will be examining each speculative pick, pulling it apart piece by piece and giving you my opinionon why I believe it is good or bad and exactly what I would do to trade it....lets see what happens from there.
