Rally To Restore Sanity: Watch It LIVE From Washington

In Health and Environment, Law & Regulations, National Economic Politics, Philosophy, Views, commentaries and opinions on 30.10.10 at 17:45

Jon Stewart‘s “Rally To Restore Sanity” is starting in Washington in under half an hour. It will be interesting to see how many people the famous comedian are able to gather in a “respectful disagreement” to discuss the issues that truly impact our lives (minus the political discord).

“We will send a message to our leaders! We are here! – but only until six…”

The Comedy Central have provided a link to the US capital where the rally is supposed to start in about 20 minutes. Click at the picture below, and follow this extraordinary event LIVE!

Jm Cramer Shoot Down The Hindenburg Omen

In Financial Markets, Health and Environment, International Econnomic Politics, Views, commentaries and opinions on 21.08.10 at 01:33

Not only did we just have a second, and far more solid Hindenburg Omen confirmation today, with 82 new highs, and 94 new lows, but the Saturday is the day when Iran launches its nuclear reactor, and everyone will be very jumpy regarding any piece of news out of the middle east.

CNBC Host Jim Cramer

As for the Hindenburg Omen, the more validations we receive, the greater the confusion in the market, and the greater the possibility for a melt down (or up, as the case may be now that the market is unlike what it has ever been in the past).

Furthermore, with implied correlation at record levels (JCJ at around 78), any potential crash will be like never before, as virtually all stocks now go up or down as one, more so than ever before.

Well, here’s CNBC‘s Jim Cramer having a bashing over the recent chatter of an impending crash:

Wednesday's Market Action As Predicted By Jim Cramer

In Financial Markets, International Econnomic Politics, National Economic Politics, Views, commentaries and opinions on 11.08.10 at 22:27

Just in case the consensus was that nobody could have possibly predicted Wednesday’s market action, here is Jim Cramer… proving the consensus was spot on.

From CNBC the day before:

“The “FED said good things – Cramer says.: “Buy.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

And here are some other recommendations that received the recommendation of not only Cramer, but some  guy from BlackRock:

“In stocks, Cramer endorsed BlackRock Chief Equity Strategist Bob Doll’s buy call on Intel [INTC 19.39 -0.43 (-2.17%) ] under $20. While there has been some concern from analysts about falling PC demand, the Mad Money host said investors should be “kind of OK” with INTC as long as the company doesn’t preannounce a shortfall within the next two weeks.”

“Will someone please advise what is the ticker for a 400:1 leveraged INTC short ETF?,” Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge comments.

DOW JONES INDUS. AVG 10,378.83 -265.42 -2.49%
S&P 500 INDEX 1,089.47 -31.59 -2.82%
NASDAQ COMPOSITE INDEX 2,208.63 -68.54 -3.01%

Now, I wonder what Jon Stewart at the Daily Show will make of this….

Remember this?

Cramer Annotated

The famous Wall Street artist, Geoffrey Raymond, is about to put the final touch on his latest painting: “Cramer Naked Short”.

As usual he takes his portraits to the street and let people passing by write their comments on it.

Only after four days of soliciting random and assorted commentary, the prevailing sentiment on CNBC’s permabullish stock-picker is certainly starting to shine through.

Here’s the result (so far):

“Do you recognize this numerical progression: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 etc.?,” Geoffrey Raymond writes on his homepage.

“Some guy named Lenny Fibonacci came up with it. He also has a kind of a swirl, which looks like this:”

“There’s a good bit of suggestion amongst the Commentaries that Cramer’s nipples are Fibonacci Spirals. This is not the case, although the fact remains that the F-word appears a number of times on the face of the canvas. Go figure.”

Here’s more famous portraits by Geoffrey Raymond.

Jim Cramer's Web Company Investigated By SEC

In Financial Markets on 18.03.10 at 20:42

The famous TV host, financial adviser and commentator Jim Cramer‘s financial web site, TheStreet.com, is being investigated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. SEC have some questions regarding Mr. Cramer’s company’s accounting practice.

“Have all other periodic reports required during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed?”

United States Securities and Exchange Commission


The United States Securities and Exchange Commission is not sure if the financial superstar Jim Cramer’s company TheStreet.com Inc. is manipulating their numbers, or not. The financial reports have not been delivered in time, and today the SEC have  launched an investigation.


SEC filed Thursday an official inquiry into the accounting of TheStreet.com Inc.

The company, founded by the famous CNBC TV host, Jim Cramer, have failed to deliver its financial reports on time, and additional information obtained by the SEC have resulted in a formal investigation.

“As a result of the need for the Company and its independent registered public accounting firm to focus attention on matters related to the Company’s previously-announced review of the accounting in its former Promotions.com subsidiary, which subsidiary the Company sold in December 2009 — including matters related to the preparation and filing by the Company in February 2010 of a Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2008, a Form 10-Q/A for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 and Forms 10-Q for the quarters ended June 30, 2009 and September 30, 2009, respectively, and matters related to an investigation commenced by Securities and Exchange Commission in March 2010 — the Company requires additional time to prepare its financial statements, assess its internal controls and file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009 (“2009 Form 10-K”). The Company expects that it will be able to file its 2009 Form 10-K on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date.”

Here’s the filing.

Securities and Exchange Commission wants answers on the following three questions:

1. Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification.

2. Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed?

3.Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?

Stripped

With the popular TV show “Mad Money“, Mr. Cramer have reached the level of a “financial guru”.

However, the guru status was kinda stripped last year by comedian Jon Stewart’s hilarious attack on Cramer and his financial advisory by pointing out that he strongly recommended buying Bear Stearns shortly before the investment bank collapsed.
