When the U.S. economy is, for the most part, in the dumps, it’s smart to invest in foreign companies. But how do you decide which companies - and from which parts of the world - can yield the best gains?
Cramer, for one, has been a fan of Russia and Eastern Europe because of their commodity wealth. With oil, metal and mineral prices skyrocketing, it certainly makes sense to put your money where these things are in abundance. So on Tuesday’s show, he revisited his Warsaw Pact Portfolio from a few weeks ago.
The five stocks that made up this basket – Mechel , Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods , Central European Distribution , Central European Media and CTC Media – are up a collective 14%, compared to a relatively flat S&P in the same period. But Cramer made one mistake when he put this portfolio together: CTC Media.
