Come, 9 pm every night and its Cramer Time at our place, yes, Mad Money is what i am talking about. One of the most popular guys on TV today is Jim Cramer. Kids, old people and youngsters who are all into stocks love this man and his show. Cramer is the definition of top spirited vigor and this red-faced character depicts obsessive behavior on news reports yelling and banging his fists off. His show starts with hsi favourite one liner that He wants to make you a lot of money and not friends. The man has a $450 million hedge fund and still prowls the floors of TheStreet.com Inc's headquarters on Wall Street.
His show runs for an hour with Jim revealing a hot stock to buy or about owning an unknown company stock tip during the first quarter of his show. Then, the calls start to come in from all over the country-Its Booyah Jimmy all the way and folks ask him a question and off he goes with his hand gestures and expressions, throwing around stuff and banging the chair while he attacks every question thrown at him with his spontaneous animated talks.
I wonder how his voice doesn't crack or how he manages to sustain such a hyper level of energy throughout. Articles say that Jim Cramer is the same kinda person off the screen, even at work and a most shrewd and articulate "Stock Guru" who is all for popularity and limelight. Jim gives his wife due credit for bringing him to this level by motivating him into stocks.
Finally, his new book Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World is selling like crazy on amazon and shows that Cramer has brought a new meaning and hope to sensible investing for common folks who are actively trading.
