When has he not predicted a stock rally?
I think people are getting waaaaaaaay too optimistic about Scott Brown’s chances.
I hope and pray that I’m wrong, but I don’t think so.
He’s the used car salesman of the markets.
What a sleezy conman.
For once, Cramer may be right. Normally I take the investment approach to bet exactly opposite of what he recommends and I’ve done well at it.
I think he’s right this time...because it will be a sign that the rats are going down....
The way I look at it, in 2000, Ted Kennedy won 98% to 2%, in 2006, 80% to 20% (those are from memory so don’t shoot me if I’m off a bit).. even if Brown looses by 10%, that is a MAJOR momentum shift.
Hearing what is happening there, watching the videos, seeing the trend lines and polling, it is hard to see how this couldn’t be pulled off.
This isn’t like the Hoffman/Scuzzy race where we were pulling for a third party candidate against the establishment with trailing momentum and not having the poll averages showing our side ahead.
I don’t agree. Now a week ago I might have but so far I see the work being done. I see the crossover vote he needs materializing. I see him winning the independents soundly. The bottom could fall out of this but I don’t see it. People in Mass while they respected Kennedy I think there is also a relief that he is gone. Massachussets is not a state filled with idelogical liberals. They have been ruled by them but this is the time if there ever was one for them to choose differently.
I said many months ago that the economy will pick up when 0bamacare and cap ‘n trade have been defeated, and not until. If they pass, we are done for...and I mean finished.
I’m a business owner and my company serves other businesses. I talk to other business owners a lot, and they are not going to budge until they have some idea of just how crazy the communists are going to get.
No one is moving until the road is safe.
They are all in a holding pattern waiting for a positive signal.
A Brown win will NOT help the economy. It won’t have any effect at all, really.
Now, a CONSERVATIVE/PRO-CAPITALIST/PRO-AMERICA landslide in November could start this train moving again, however.
Cramer is an 0bama supporting boob! I wouldn’t go to the guy for help buying produce, let alone investments.
Simply put: Cramer is an idiot.
A Brown win will NOT help the economy.
I think what Cramer is saying is that a Brown victory would be that signal. Brown himself may not help the economy, but he's not a Democrat, and right now, that may be all that voters ask of a candidate.
“a Brown victory would be that signal.”
I know, but with 0bamacare and cap ‘n trade looming large...trust me, small businesses aren’t going to risk sticking their heads out just yet.
Many of them couldn’t even if they wanted to—they’re barely making payroll.
That makes sense. A Brown win is like Normandy Beach.
But the Healthcare fight would not be over.
DEM THREAT: SENATE CAN PASS HEALTHCARE WITH 51 VOTES
Exactly, it's just human nature to do so.
To all the ignorant pr!cks in the SRM and liberal blogs who made fund of people "going Galt", here's a real life example, and I'll guarantee you there are tens of thousands of others who are doing business exactly the same way. When Zero and the American Socialist Party are no longer a threat to business, the economy will go on a rampage and make whoever follows them look like an economic genius because there will be so much pent up demand.
The common cold
Maybe. But it at least gives us a chance to try to.
If anyone feels confident that Brown will win on Tuesday, it would be smart to buy Bank stocks on Tuesday morning. Bank of America, JPM, Wells Fargo, etc.
This is a no brainer call by Cramer . . pretty obvious. Also health insurance companies and coal companies.
Obozo is to much on an ideologue to compromise and be pragmatic with a Newt like figure today like Clinton was.
Obozo does not have the winds of the productivity enhancements of the information revolution that occurred under Clinton's watch. Those tools are fungible now.
2 of the potential technological revolutions that will springboard man's wealth with be in genetic/tailored drugs, and rules based medicine . They would have potentially died with Obamacare, Scott gives them a slight chance, but it is too soon to say this beast is dead.
But if the markets think 6 months ahead, it is Jan. and not quite 6 months to November But I could see people getting in thinking Obama-fascism will be stopped in Nov.in a rout and trying to get in now if they feel prices are relatively cheap compared to what they would be then.
Not investment advice, just my two cents....
Something similar happened during Richard Nixon’s wage and price freeze. A lot of companies had a hiring freeze, they refused to hire anyone even if they really needed more help. They were waiting to see how it ended.
