Here are a few of the questions to which Cramer recently responded:
- Syntax-Brillian( BRLC) is blowing up.
Is this good forCorning (GLW) ?
- If the Fed cuts by 50 basis points, the market will fly, and they don't want that. If it cuts by 25 bp, the market will collapse and they might not want that either.
So can the Fed cut by 37.5 bp?
- I bought First Solar (FSLR) on your "Stop Trading!" recommendation and down 6% in one day.
Do I read this as horrific that it went down on your and Goldman's recommendation? Or do I hold?
- When Sears (SHLD) came out with earnings, it said it had strong sales in its electronics department.
So would you buyBest Buy (BBY) ahead of earnings next week?
- Nestle (NSRGY) :
Is it a good play on CEEMEA (Central Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa)?
- I see many estimates for how many total loans fall into the subprime category, but I haven't seen any numbers yet on what percentage of total loans (both prime and subprime) this constitutes. It would seem to be prudent to know this to gauge just how big the subprime issue really is.
What are your estimates? What percent of all loans qualify as subprime?
