Here are a few of the questions to which Cramer recently responded:
- After taking some time to digest its announcements, I think Apple (AAPL) will still be in great shape. I just don't understand the research last week that said the iPhone was selling great and would easily surpass estimates.
If so, why cut prices?
- You seem much more bearish on RealMoney.com than you are on "Mad Money."
Is that because you are betting on a rate cut?
- Crocs (CROX) got crushed today after its CFO said something about margins getting slightly smaller due to air shipping a hot-selling product. This is something they said in the conference call, so it is not new news.
Do you think that this is just an overreaction and the stock will bounce back soon, or will it be trading lower for a while now?
- NBC pulls its shows from iTunes and sells them on Amazon's (AMZN) Unbox now. That way, they can charge more.It's not enough to affect NBC parent company GE (GE) and you can't sell Apple on this, so is buying Amazon the only play here?
- In light of Jim Cramer and James Altucher's Hurricane Plays video on the TheStreet.com TV yesterday, the latest hurricane forecast and today's action,
is it time to start unloading the natural gas stocks or do we ride them and sell into a cold winter?
- Sell EMC (EMC) and buy VMware (VMW) .
- Listening to you quote Lenin today on a video for TheStreet.com TV left a bit me confused.
How is the Federal Reserve's not riding to the rescue by cranking up the printing presses viewed by you as "communist" and "punishing" free-market capitalists?
- The Fed is obviously working against the mortgage lenders. The Fed wants lower prices, mortgage lenders would want higher prices. Or do they?
Would Countrywide Financial( CFC) make more money if home prices were higher, as there'd be less buyers but rich ones? Or is better for the lender if home prices were lower with more average-income buyers in the market?
