5 Best Stories on Real Money: Cramer on Meme Stocks, Coming Oil Correction

Here are five must reads from Jim Cramer, Carley Garner and the team at Real Money/Real Money Pro!

The insistence that the media vilifies the new democratic ways of investing is perhaps the biggest canard being perpetrated today.

We have never seen an energy bull run survive this large a net long holding.

Most had thought that Bitcoin was impenetrable -- that holding crypto in your own wallet was fail safe.

Having both a long-term portfolio and an aggressive trading account is one of the best forms of diversification.

There are nine new listings in Shanghai and Shenzhen that are "REITs with Chinese characteristics."

It's all on Real Money right now.

Here are five must reads from the columnists of Real Money and Real Money Pro, our premium sites for Wall Street professionals and active investors:

Jim Cramer: For the Meme Throng, There Are Just Not Enough Targets

The otherwise utopian world of meme trading lacks the firepower to extend its domain, writes Jim Cramer

If more people simply pledged never to sell stocks, we would find out which stocks that had the most shareholders who took the pledge and buy those and those only. However, that's an unrealistic view of the world.

Carley Garner: It's Been a Nice Run, but Oil and Energy Are Due for a Correction

Crude oil futures are pushing $70.00 per barrel a mere year after seeing prices dip well below $20.00. This is an impressive feat by any account. 

While the market doesn't become obscenely overbought until we see $75.00 to $77.00, it is fair to say traders are likely getting over their skis, says Carley Garner.

Doug Kass: It Now Appears That My Ursine View of Bitcoin Is Being Realized

Despite protestations from some very intelligent digital currency observers, Doug Kass remains a Bitcoin bear. His bearish view of Bitcoin is well known by subscribers. 

Though some real smart people are committed to Bitcoin, Kass can't think of a bigger game of hot potato than digital currencies.

Rev Shark: Aggressive Trading Can Be an Important Part of a Balanced Portfolio

The surge in "meme" trading has been a hot topic in the business media recently. Traditional Wall Street tends to focus on the irrationality of the action. There is a morbid fascination with the movement, similar to watching a car wreck where it is known that the outcome is likely to be very bad. 

At the other end of the spectrum, however, are many small, aggressive traders celebrating the exceptional opportunities created by the tremendous volatility. Those lucky enough to make the right moves will produce in a single day more gains than a balanced portfolio might produce in a year, explains James "Rev Shark" DePorre.

Alex Frew McMillan: China Launches Its First REITs, or Does It?

China's pilot scheme for real-estate investment trusts (REITs) has launched with the debut of nine infrastructure funds. Five of the funds started trading on the stock market in Shanghai and another four in Shenzhen. It is a tentative launch, with all the funds backed by infrastructure projects rather than the privately owned commercial real estate you might expect. 

The properties include highways, industrial parks, warehouses and sewage plants. No gleaming office towers, thronging shopping malls or newly minted homes to be seen. Still, the offerings have got off to a reasonable start, observes Alex Frew McMillan.
