Book Details

Cramer, cofounder of TheStreet.com, the daily financial news Web site, and cohost of CNBC's Kudlow & Cramer, is a successful trader and former hedge-fund manager. His autobiography, Confessions of a Street Addict (2002), was an honest portrayal of his sometimes-brutal rise to the top; it was not a trading manual. Here Cramer reveals how he made his money and distills his methods so that the average reader can understand them. Rather than catering to the Wall Street party line of "buy and hold" investing, he is an advocate of "buy and homework." He recommends starting with just four stocks in safe, diverse sectors and devoting a minimum of one hour per week of study to each company. Although others condemn speculation as pure gambling, Cramer insists that the fifth part of your portfolio should be devoted to a purely speculative play to take advantage of potential "home runs"; although much of his advice is for serious students of the market, there is a special trial offer for ActionAlertsPLUS.com, a Web site where Cramer openly reveals all of his trades before he makes them, giving his subscribers the opportunity to get in before he does.
