Nowhere is Cramer more misunderstood than during the Lightning Round, he says. The problem? People take his recommendations from that segment and equate them with those from the rest of the show.
It’s not that the advice Cramer gives during the Lightning Round isn’t sound – it is – but it isn’t as well developed as the rest of the show, and you should weigh that accordingly. Remember that the Lightning Round is supposed to be entertaining, like a game show. The real question is whether or not Cramer can get through it without having a heart attack. But it’s also about interactivity and the viewers and the stocks they think are important.
