GM Slides On Big Miss As Jim Cramer Does It Again

Tyler Durden's picture


What better way to assure your company has an earnings bomb? Have Jim Cramer tout it before earnings of course. Sure enough from January 28: "GM sales are going to be superb", and "Europe's coming back." Fast forward to today when GM reports Q4 revenues of $40.5 billion which missed expectations of $40.9 billion, and EPS of $0.67 vs the $0.87 expected. Additionally, GM's global market share just dropped to 11.4% - matching the lowest in the past year.

So much for the superb sales. As for Europe? Well, as the chart below shows, Europe just posted its weakest quarter in the past year...

And don't count on much growth either: CapEx was down to $7.5 billion in 2013, from $8.1 billion in 2012, even as the company's total free cash flow declined from $4.3 billion last year to just $3.7 billion.


And all this even despite the second highest channel stuffing in post-bankrutpcy company history:


Sure enough, stock does this:

Finally, heeeeeeere's Cramer.

A couple more calls like this and Cramer can write his own ticket at Fox Business.

Cramer either looks drunk in that clip slurring his words or else he's chewing the hell out of his gums after a few lines of coke..

''Cramer is such a douchebag. I can't understand why he is still given Air-Time''

Let me take a shot at that one. Because he's willing to say anything for a paycheck he couldn't get anywhere else, like those clowns Kernan and Kudlow whose ratings have tanked when people stopped listening to them, but they keep their jobs anyway?

Maybe you just don't listen to any of them, so you just don't know how utterly inane they are. But they answered those job ads for lying whores, and someone had to get in.

Cramer has no idea how bad it is out there, NO IDEA, he has no IDEA...
He needs to open the (discount) window... and take a look out... He has No Idea!

Ed: that's quite enough Cramer jokes for now...

I can understand why he's given airtime. He's a corrupt shill who'll say anything his handlers wasnt him to.


What I do not understand is how anybody - anybody - would listen to him.  He's been so utterly discredited he's become a parody of himself.

Cramer is not only a dorkus maximus, he is a flat out criminal.  Read this expose by a former journalist from the Columbia Journalism Review to find out just how bad he is and how bad his fellows are in the financial journalism industry.

We were taken there at gunpoint.... we didn't bail them out , our politicians threw our money at them. Don't forget all those bondholders that got screwed. Looks like the UAW is the only outfit that got the golden parachute in that deal.

So Cramer, he sent to USA by Israel, he slip on yellow fruit, Israel say he damage head, and he to be left in USA.

MSM discovers Cramer and puts him on TV, the rest is history.

You keep Cramer, Israel not want him back.

A: CEO is too busy screw shareholder, ripping customer, and negotiate severance packaging for light bulb - is have illegal immigrant custodial staff attend light bulb.

Tall Tom's picture we got rid of them. (Well it was true that regulations stifled business. I am not suggesting that getting rid of them was bad.)

Now we have to get rid of all the weather. We will remove the atmosphere. That will be bad...very bad for business.


I think that ridding ourselves of Cramer may be a better alternative. But no...The Weather has to go.
