Jim Cramer’s Mad Money

On Jim Cramer’s Mad Money show yesterday he proffered the idea of “orphan” stocks. (Now you should remember that he only proposes this for your investments you can afford to lose, not your retirement investments. Only if you want to speculate should you enter this investing area.) “Orphan” stocks are small-to-mid-sized companies that are followed by one or two investment houses at the most. This is possibly profitable because if they are solid companies they will eventually be “found” by Wall Street and will be “adopted.” This gives you a huge potential upside because with more exposure from analysts comes more investors. He gave some specific stock tickers yesterday and you can go with that or do your own research. Another criteria for good “orphans” was that they have little to no debt. He mentions this because they are smaller companies that are more prove to bankruptcy than large cap stocks. So if you are prepared to take the challenge you can go with his ideas or try to find your own.

    I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
    the indexes easily.

    Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
