I'm glad I have a good percentage invested in gold and silver...and I have my pantry stocked and a good-sized garden in the back yard. It's no longer a question of 'If" - it's a matter of "when": this is all going to nose-dive in the near future. Thanks, Ben, for putting the printing presses on Warp Factor 9! <sarcasm>

Will this Stock Scouter thing go away when Jon Markman's column stops?

I don't believe their 954% figure. I think that is back tested hindsight. I suspect it's more like "If someone had bought the best ten stocks meeting our criteria and continued to buy the ten most successful stocks meeting our criteria going back to........blah blah blah."

I also noticed there are no one year, YTD, one month returns this month. Those seemed much more believable, basically matching the S&P 500 or trailing it by a little.

If anyone had made close to 1000% over the last ten years, they would not be writing about it. It would be their secret method, and it's all they would do.

Yeah right.  When the ultra rich want to get rid of their stocks.....  it's time for you to tell the average Joe to buy them just before they tumble.   What a joke!.

Do not fear as the big crash is inevitable. It is looming around the corner just waiting to lunge.

maybe if you invest some of your earnings instead of smoking crack you wouldn't feel so bad...

Always look at the price history of a stock in short and long term charts. Be patient, Buy low, never chase a stock if it has exploding upward ...... All this reduces your risk considerably. I think the market is long overdue for a big correction. I'm mostly in cash right now ...like near 100% cash ....

Maybe Obama invested his money on healthcare since pot is legal in state of Washington.

Yeah, like THAT"S going to happen with that IDIOT benny in charge of counterfeiting money. The way he's printing money, you'd think it was going to go out of style next year.

If I had enough money to buy enough of each of these companies, I would not need to invest in anything.  Even at .0000000000000000000000001% interest in a bank, there would be more than enough for my immediate family, as well as my brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews, and their families to live on!

Whatever you choose to do, just don't take anything Cramer has to say for any value at all. As for myself, I recommend DEO, TSCO, WEN, and DAL.  Bet those four wll beat anyting Cramer has to recommend.
