On Stockpickr Answers Monday and over the last few days, Jim Cramer responded to a new batch of questions posed by members of the Stockpickr community.
Anybody can ask, respond or comment at Stockpickr Answers; the top responders get ranked in our "Top Analysts" section.
Here are a few of the questions to which Cramer has recently responded:
- I am looking in to picking up some Vonage (VG) - Get Report since I know you love this one more than cheap scotch on that dirty linoleum floor.
- With Goldman Sachs' (GS) - Get Report earnings predicted to be relatively flat for 2008 over 2007, what drives the stock higher?
Is it book-value growth, P/E expansion, or something else?
- We have now seen the extreme volatility in NYSE Euronext (NYX) work against the bears with the stock jumping 8 points in the last four sessions.
Is there a catalyst driving the strong move upward? Do you think there is leaked information about Duncan's talks with the SEC that some market participants know about?
Or is this a case of people finally realizing this stock should not be below $85?
- I know at one time you liked Southern Copper (PCU) , but I haven't heard you talk about it much lately. It has had a great run over the last year and the dividend isn't too shabby either.
Do you think this stock can keep running or is it nearing a top?
- I am a bit confused as to why you like Verizon (VZ) - Get Report better than AT&T (T) - Get Report. First off, Verizon has a PEG of 2.36 and one of your rules is to not pay over 2 times growth rate. Secondly, AT&T seems to be the best of breed in this sector. Thirdly, AT&T has the high earnings coming from iPhone sales. Lastly, Verizon has an enterprise value/EBITDA of 5 -- seems expensive to me. Thoughts?
- I have heard you say a few times that while you worked at Goldman Sachs you used to put your jacket on the back of your chair and leave to get a beer.
That is really funny; but did you ever get caught?
- I'm looking to take a position in a tech stock. I have so many choices that I'm stuck. I plan to buy and hold 6-12 months or longer based on current data, where would you send me?
Should I stick with best of breed? I'm looking at Apple (AAPL) - Get Report, Research In Motion (RIMM) , Corning (GLW) - Get Report, Baidu.com (BIDU) - Get Report and Marvell (MRVL) - Get Report -- any help is greatly appreciated!
- Disney (DIS) - Get Report:
Is now the right time to buy Disney, or is this a bad time since we don't have another Pirates movie in the pipeline?
