Cramer makes the call on viewers' favorite stocks.Investing can be confusing. Luckily, Cramer has mapped out some road rules for all you Home Gamers trying to navigate the jungle that is Wall Street.

Whether you're a first time investor or a seasoned financier, it's always good to remember the basics.
Hey folks--here are the final contest standings as we start the last two weeks of the Million Dollar Portfolio Challenge. Serge Amelyan is the owner of the top portfolio by dollar value in the contest followed by Shi Nisman who have both hovered near the top of the list for a few weeks now. Serge did not break the $5M mark but managed to chalk up a 388% return over the last 10 weeks. More than $1M separates Serge in first and Barry in 10th.
At the risk of repeating myself, which I am, it's earnings once again that's dominating the results of the contest stocks. It certainly makes sense, seeing as this is earnings season. And those playing the "earnings game" are seeing the benefits, (current contest leader Greyson Masters) if they picked right (VDSI). Of course, earnings can be a "downer" as owners of SMMX and ISLN found out. Here ya go.
Good morning all. Another new name tops the leaderboard. Greyson Masters takes the top spot with his million dollar trade on Vasco Data (we said yesterday, this might happen), Shi Nisman falls to 3rd on a bad earnings play with Old Dominion, which fell 6.02% Thursday, and cost him almost $250K. Serge Amelyan moves back up the list into 2nd on F5 Networks' strong earnings.
F5 Networks posted higher quarterly earnings which came in above Wall Street estimates and forecast third-quarter earnings above analysts' view. Shares rose over 15% to $75.60 in late electronic trade, after closing at $66.07.
