    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

With all these ETF firms running out of fresh ETF ideas, couldn't someone start an Inverse Jim Cramer ETF?  Symbol JCBS?  Take every recommendation buy and sell, and do the exact opposite (like George Costanza in the great Seinfeld episode).

He'll make as many calls as TPTB need.  This is vintage Cramer, he was better suited to Seinfeld.  Believe me, if anyone makes money with Cosmo there, its just a happy coincidence.  I can't beleive he's still on either.

Cramer:  "And unlike Countrywide, Merrill’s reputation was never tarnished."

Selective memory loss.


Bank of America to Buy Merrill Lynch for $50 Billion


"Merrill came under pressure to find a merger partner came after its liquidity began "evaporating" Friday and the firm became worried about a sharp decline in share price on Monday, according to people inside the firm.

Merrill is expecting huge job losses with the merger. The brokerage division will stay intact, but there will be large-scale reductions in workforce. CEO John Thain is also expected to leave.

"It's over," said one senior Merrill official.

The deal comes as Lehman Brothers Holdings prepares to file for bankruptcy after failing to find a buyer.

A Merrill Lynch spokeswoman and a Bank of America  spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.

Merrill, stuck with some of the same toxic debt -- much of it mortgage-related -- which torpedoed Lehman's balance sheet, has been hit hard by the credit crisis and has written down more than $40 billion over the last year.

I don't have TV so I have never seen Cramer before , but having seen that clip , well no wonder America is fucked I mean people actually listen to him . Years ago I bought AU/AG and felt kinda bad because in the long run I knew I was betting against America surviving , well I feel a whole lot better now .

I have been a big fan of Cramer for a long time, however since getting the gig on the floor of the exchange daily he has become more of a buffoon, and I have lost much respect for him and his antics in the last 12 months, his time has passed and I do believe that he is costing people serious money.

The Winners of the New World - TheStreet

The Winners of the New World By Jim Cramer February 29, 2000 - 09:42 AM EST

Editor's Note: James J. Cramer is the keynote speaker at the 6th Annual Internet and Electronic Commerce Conference and Exposition, held today at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. We're running the full text of that speech here.

You want winners? You want me to put my Cramer Berkowitz hedge fund hat on and just discuss what my fund is buying today to try to make money tomorrow and the next day and the next? You want my top 10 stocks for who is going to make it in the New World? You know what? I am going to give them to you. Right here. Right now.

OK. Here goes. Write them down -- no handouts here!: 724 Solutions (SVNX), Ariba (ARBA), Digital Island (ISLD), Exodus (EXDS), InfoSpace.com (INSP), Inktomi (INKT), Mercury Interactive (MERQ), Sonera (SNRA), VeriSign (VRSN) and Veritas Software (VRTS).

We are buying some of every one of these this morning as I give this speech. We buy them every day, particularly if they are down, which, no surprise given what they do, is very rare. And we will keep doing so until this period is over -- and it is very far from ending. Heck, people are just learning these stories on Wall Street, and the more they come to learn, the more they love and own! Most of these companies don't even have earnings per share, so we won't have to be constrained by that methodology for quarters to come.

In Cramer We Trust

Just skip to 3:10 (because Jon get's a lot wrong about Santelli, IMO, but NAILS the rest - regardless of how you or I feel about him - CNBC's tape speaks for itself, sadly, in which CNBC recommends buying Bear Stearns, AIG, and Bank of America, among many others, at or near their all time highs).

I think that since the OBAMA "Immaculation", CNBC has transformed itself into a political format disguised as a business channel. How else do you explain hiring Howard Dean as the channels official political officer ;)

AS to Cramer, he hasn't been the same since Jon Leibowitz aka Steward distroyed him after his rant about how he (Cramer) was going to raise an army to do battle with HopeanChange OBAMANOMICS.

not to defend Cramer who is at the same class as ZH, ZH has been bearish on US quity since 03/2009, my take is ZH missed the entire bull run. And now ZH picks up some Cramer's wrong calls to laugh about him?


gezz, check out ZH's posts regarding US equity since 03/2009. give me a break.

Zero Hedge has told readers to avoid manipulated stock markets entirely (repeatedly) and if so tempted, to put money solely into non dilutable precious metals. Stocks when priced in gold are well below the March 2009 low. Feel free to redo your calculation. Reference: March 18, 2009.

Because it was not a bull run. It was an artificially inflated market backed by false money and the expansion of debt which can only result in a total collapse of epic proportions. Also if you look at the market in dollar terms it actually did not go up at all. Just as you can get inflation in real goods you can get inflation in stocks. The only thing that happened is that it takes more dollars to buy just about everything, the actual product didn't change its value at all.

You should read your history and look what happened to the market right after 1929. I bet people were proclaiming the crash was not the start of an economic downturn that would last and the roaring bull market of the 20s had returned. Only to completely collapse when the country realized there was no real economy and the consumption bubble of the 20s could not be sustained.
