Kass: Jim Cramer's Pool
As I always write (to my haters and lovers alike) in my diary's comments section, we are all on the same team. In the end, we all want to make thoughtful, intelligent and carefully-analyzed investments that yield superior results. We are hopeful that the pages of TheStreet, Real Money and Real Money Pro provide you with that ammunition.
Several years ago, I initiated something different in order to express my sincere thanks and to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season in my own special way. This morning, as I now do on an annual basis, I offer you the following (updated) parody of Dr. Seuss's McElligot's Pool.
This is my holiday present to all of you, but it's especially in honor of someone who has had another remarkable encore performance in 2013, Jim "El Capitan" Cramer.
This year we saw Cramerica reach not only millions more television viewers, but many universities as well. Jim hit it out of the park when he followed up his past MVP season. His interviews with corporate managements are well researched and add value. His columns are insightful and differentiated. And his growing stable of books all represent a unique body of work, as well: Jim Cramer's Getting Back to Even, Jim Cramer's Stay Mad for Life: Get Rich, Stay Rich (Make Your Kids Even Richer), Jim Cramer's Mad Money: Watch TV, Get Rich, Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World, Confessions of a Street Addict and You Got Screwed! Why Wall Street Tanked and How You Can Prosper.Jim has a new book out this month: Get Rich Carefully!, and I know he is especially excited about it. Jim is the lifeblood and at the epicenter of TheStreetand its sister sites Real Money and Real Money Pro. Over the past few years, the man who doesn't want to make friends, but does want to make you money, has introduced the words "skeedaddy" and "booyah" and made them part of the investment world's vernacular. He has graced the cover of national magazines and has become an iconic figure. As such, he stands out, night after night, with non-stop enthusiasm and hard work , giving his best shot in dispensing advice in a reasoned and well-researched manner (both absolutely and relative to others in the media). Being such a public persona with strong opinions, he is often the target of criticism (especially on Twitter these days). I admire his work ethic and the way he accepts mostly undeserved criticism like a man and the manner in which he fights back with facts and figures, with such an immense and rich reservoir of financial history and knowledge.
