Pros Vs. Joes

You’ve heard it all before: Don’t manage your own money. The market is too complicated. Trust a “professional” instead. You’ll be better off.

Really, though? Cramer doesn’t think so. After all, no one cares more about your money than you do. So why turn it over to some stranger?

Cramer is a firm believer that anyone with the time and drive to understand stocks can beat the Street. Retail investors just need to shake off the dogma that pundits and pros have been throwing at them. Ideas like, be all in stocks all the time. Or, index funds are the safest and smartest ways for the average joe to grow his money. And this one: You can’t compete with the big boys, so don’t even try.

What’s the truth then? Cramer spent much of Monday’s show debunking these myths. Watch the video for his full report.
