Mad Money Mailbag: Gold Digging

Editor's note: The following are questions received from viewers of "Mad Money," seen every day at 6 p.m. EST on CNBC.


Are there any ways to invest in gold that are similar to owning a stock?

-- Scott from Pennsylvania

Jim 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 - Get Report), FedEx (FDX - Get Report), Fortune Brands (FO), Principal Financial (PFG - Get Report), Pfizer (PFE - Get Report) and Garmin (GRMN - Get Report). 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!


I missed the company name of the independent oil and natural gas executive you interviewed this week. Can you help me out?

-- Mark from Los Angeles

Jim Cramer: Sure, it was Albert Resse, Jr., who's the CFO of ATP Oil & Gas (ATPG).
