This Show Is About Education

Friday, 29 Jun 2007 | 5:19 PM ET

Mad Money is about education. Sure, everyone loves a good stock pick, but if that’s all you’re getting from the show you’re missing something. Take a typical segment, for instance, where Cramer talks about a stock he likes and why he thinks it’s a good buy. The reasoning behind the pick is more important than the pick itself.

How to Use Mad Money, Pt. 3

You have to ask yourself, is Cramer focusing on a sector or a company? If it’s a sector, you might want to look for similar companies that share the same traits. It’s always more important to remember what Cramer says about a sector than an individual stock because 50% of where a stock goes is determined by its sector.
