Panic as Investment Strategy

Panicked investors never make any money. That’s about as essential a Mad Money maxim as you can get. Case in point: All of those people scared out of the market after yesterday’s 290-point Dow decline who missed Tuesday’s 128-point jump.

This is where homework comes in. You can survive otherwise emotional days like Monday as long as you do your research and trust your thesis. While everyone else is selling out, pushing down prices on some of Wall Street’s best stocks, you can buy them up at a discount.

So how exactly did Tuesday’s action play out? What kind of leadership did Google , Apple , JPMorgan Chase , Goldman Sachs and even industrial bellwether Caterpillar provide? Watch the video for Cramer’s full report.
