Here are a few of the questions to which Cramer recently responded:
- What happens on Wall Street tomorrow? Cramer thinks stocks are currently overbought ... what do you guys think tomorrow will bring?
- Assuming you had a well-diversified portfolio and were interested in taking a substantial position (10%) in one speculative and one non-speculative stock for a two- to six-month time frame, which two stocks would you choose?
- How does the Street justify the unbelievably low valuation for Google (GOOG) - Get Report?
- According to a recent Motley Fool article, Gap (GPS) - Get Report has projected growth of 11% and its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is 20. Its competitors have lower P/Es and higher growth rates.
Wouldn't Gap be expensive at this point?
- I'm looking at buying some LEAPS in either Goldman Sachs (GS) - Get Report or Bear Stearns (BSC) . I know that they are having problems, but I think that all the bad news is already in the stock price. What do you think?
- Is this a good time to tap into the ROW (Rest of World) stocks? I'm trying to choose between iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index (FXI) - Get Report and iShares MSCI Brazil Index (EWZ) - Get Report. Would you wait, seeing as they seemed to have topped for the short term?
- Are you bullish on ConocoPhillips (COP) - Get Report?
- Other than a hedge against inflation and volatility, are there any other reasons to get into metal and mining stocks?
