What's your opinion of Constellation Brands (STZ) - Get Constellation Brands, Inc. Class A Report? This was a former pick of the week that's done nothing but go down.-- Kate from Texas

James J. Cramer:

After moving 15% higher from where

I recommended it at $26.77 on May 2, the stock has recently pulled back even with that level. Even so, I continue to believe that Constellation's portfolio of premium spirits brands will grow faster than the rest of the industry.

I'm new to your television show, and it's refreshing to hear someone actually recommend selling a stock. My question is about limit orders. If a stock is trading for $10 and I place an order to buy it at $9.75, how can I get this price? -- Kevin from Tampa, Fla.

James J. Cramer:

Good question, and the answer is probably easier than you think. Picture the market's bid (price and how many shares you can sell of a stock) and ask (price and how many shares you can buy) as a long list of limit orders. When a buyer and seller agree on a price, the trade is executed.

They are listed in declining order, so someone wanting to buy the stock at $9.80 will be able to purchase it before you would at $9.75. As the day progresses and buy/sell demand moves the stock, your order can move up/down in priority.

At the end of the day, the market price will have to come down to your limit in order for you to make the purchase in this case.
