-- Scott from PennsylvaniaJim Cramer: The StreetTracks Gold Trust (GLD) tracks the underlying price of gold on a 10:1 basis, offering investors a cost-effect and liquid way to invest in the yellow metal.
I own Apache (APA), FedEx (FDX), Fortune Brands (FO), Principal Financial (PFG), Pfizer (PFE) and Garmin (GRMN). Am I diversified? -- Warren from Nebraska Jim Cramer: That's six stocks, compared with the usual five I ask for, but you are still diversified!
