Jim Cramer: The Kids Know WhatsApp

If you want a laugh, go back and read the research about Gilead's folly, giving up a third of its market cap for something as unproven as a possible pill for hep C. Analysts hated the deal, just like the critics I heard yesterday.

Finally, I heard that the dilution would be horrendous -- sure, if it doesn't work. But if it does, then it won't be dilutive, meaning, if you believe in Facebook's management, as I do, you can see the synergies and possibilities and don't want to be doing some deal that adds three cents per share to 2015. You want to do a deal that makes you an even bigger and more unassailable powerhouse with more touch and reach. You have no choice if you are going to thrive instead of stagnate.

We bought some for Action Alerts PLUS. We thought we were in for a tough day initially with our first buy and we bought more when it kept going down. Funny thing is, I wish we had bought twice as much.

I just hope we will get the chance.
