Here are a few of the questions to which Cramer recently responded:

  • On "Mad Money" last night, I got the impression that you might be pulling away from minerals, but you didn't give specific names. Are Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold (FCX) - Get Report and ConocoPhillips (COP) - Get Report dead money now,
    or can I start positions?
  • EMC (EMC) has been a tremendous disappointment the last few days, even in light of the market's performance. It looks to me as if those who pushed this above $19 have left and are not coming back. Those buyers have yet to be replaced. VMware's (VMW) - Get Report price movement seems to be totally irrelevant.
  • After-hours trading sent Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) - Get Report to $47.50, but it has dropped back.
    Why wouldn't it stick around the $47 price?
  • After watching a video from the end of July on TV to buy a speculative stock -- Nastech Pharmaceutical (NSTK) -- during the credit crunch,
    I can't help but feel that you messed up royally.
  • NYSE Euronext (NYX) , CME Group (CME) - Get Report, Nymex (NMX) and other exchange stocks -- I have been reading some articles that say that with a market slowdown there could be lower volume because investors will be holding cash, thereby resulting in reduced revenue growth long term.
    What do you think?
