Jim Cramer said he made two huge mistakes last year: First was selling Home Depot from his charitable trust, and the second was cutting Tom Brady from his fantasy football team. They both ended up making monster runs for the Super Bowl.
"I recognize that it is fashionable in fantasy circles to not draft a top quarterback early. Just like it's not fashionable in the stock game to stick with a domestic retailer that's linked to the cyclical home business," the "Mad Money" host said.
But in Cramer's opinion, both Tom Brady and Home Depot make the most out of what they have. That is why Brady wins Super Bowls and why Home Depot manages to rise above its retail competition year after year.
And while Cramer has championed Home Depot for a long time, he does recognize that he has too often played the Fed game with the stock, saying that it will go down the hardest if the Fed raises rates—that has been a mistake.
