Even in a bear market like this one, Jim Cramer wants investors to be thinking about how to assemble a portfolio that will bounce back quickly when the smoke clears.
That is why he continued his weekly series of fantasy football stocks, because drafting a great fantasy team is a lot like picking terrific stocks. If investors even gave the same amount of energy to stocks as they do towards fantasy football, they will be a much better investor.
Cramer started by picking receivers, both tight ends and wide receivers. Those are the positions that can put tons of points on the board. So that means in stock market terms, the stocks must be high quality momentum names with super-charged growth rates to bring tremendous potential upside to a portfolio.
That means the members of Cramer's FANG group are back, baby. FANG is his acronym for Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google. After the selloff the market had this quarter, many of these names were hit hard.
