Morgan Stanley Has Lowest Close Since December 2008, Down 40% From Jim Cramer's "Dirt Cheap" Level

Tyler Durden's picture


Little to be said here: everyone's favorite proxy of all that is broken with Europe, and now the retail investor, Margin Stanley just closed at the lowest price since December 2008. The move lower continues as Zero Hedge warned back in September of 2011. Compare this to Jim Cramer's February 2 pronouncement that Morgan Stanley is a "dirt cheap stock"... at $19.66!? The 40% prolapse in the four months since (120% annualized?) probably make it dirtest cheapest?

Cramer recommending MS is like Obama recommending Obamacare.  Both are losers. Cramer should start blowing Obama and close the loop.

Cramer is embarassed all the way to the bank.

Cramer's business model: hump your leg and bill you for a massage.

Dear Jim,

Is it true the US Government agreed to stop its investigation of your company, if you became uber-perma-bullish to the tune of saying things like, "Everyone gets long here and nobody gets hurt?"

By "nobody" did you really mean you?


PS: When you die, say hello to Goebbels

Time for a relief rally.  CUSIPS I cover narrowed after the mini-blitz of EU headlines today.  MS bonds have held up relative to shares - financials are oversold and a short squeeze is in the works.

Cramers track record is documented here through March 29, 2012. Would love to see the update through May. Significantly trails S&P 500 index over 3, 6 and 12 month periods.

Any serious investor knows he is a complete tool.

Goebbels said what he believed- didn't spout somes pseudo-crony-capitalist bullshit. And he had the stones to put a bullet in his head when the shit went down.

Q:"What's cheaper than dirt?" A: Your portfolio after listening to this asshat.

I quote Michael O'Donoghue, "I don't think television will ever be perfected until the viewer can press a button and cause whoever is on the screen's head to explode."

A small child, with Down's syndrome, flipping a quarter would give more accurate stock advice than this douchebag.

In all fairness, my brother-in-law started taking Cramer's advice last year and now he's a millionaire.

Problem is, last year my brother-in-law was a billionaire.

As long as it is not your money what's your problem?

In actual fact I would be willing to pay extra tax to have Brittania re-commisioned.

I would rather we spent money on that than giving £15bn pa to the EU

The total cost of being in the EU is £48mn a DAY.

Faggots don't jump, they die of broken priorities, marginalizing themselves one lost and broken argument at a time.

The fact that Fag-Fan #1 has any viewers at all is testimony the market bitch has a long way to fall.

IMO there are plenty of people on Wall Street who are either (1) incompetent or (2) grossly dishonest and lacking any moral or ethical standards.

Now, I don't know which of those 2 Cramer fits into. My guess is both.

Cramer = Buy what's going up + sell what's going down + Buy financials, but only TBTF financials b/c those are his overlords.

Could it be that I've cracked the code?

Actually, you gotta love this guy. An in- your-face huckster, the real life Flim Flam Man, and the lumps keep throwing money at him. As Eli Wallach said in The Magnificent Seven..."if God had not wanted them to be shorn, He would not have made them sheep."

Cramer is a manic depressive blowhard. This is just fact. If you have ever met him and tried to look him in the eye, you would know he has serious issues.

Some viewers of his 'showmanship' are mesmerized by him. This is not uncommon, as some manic depressive personalities can be alluring during their mania.

Rapid speech, pompous, arrogant, in control, etc.

Ah, I get it. So the stock picking and blowing up trillions of dollars of personal wealth is some extroverted gestalt therapy for him. Wonderful.

Can't we give him a pill instead?

The fact that Cramer still has listeners never fails to amaze me. I heard one guy call in once and say he made money off a stock tip, but I figured he was a friend of Jim's.

He threw in the towel on fb today, after his viewers lost 40% on his advice.  The dude can't win.  Luckily for him, he will always have a job fluffing the Bavarian Illuminatti in a castle in eastern Europe.
