What do you think of Creative Technologies (CREAF) ?-- Samantha from New Hampshire
: I don't believe Creative Technologies can compete with
in mp3 players anywhere but in the courtroom, so I am not recommending Creative's stock here. Unless the company can find a way to boost profit margins I'm steering clear of Creative, even after the big decline in the stock price.
Can momentum stocks ever turn into long-term investments?-- Carol from New York
: Momentum stocks can become long-term holdings, providing a company's end markets have enough potential to support a multi-year move. You could argue that
was a momentum stock for over a decade beginning in the late 1980's as the stock moved up aggressively on incredibly strong earnings growth. However, this tends to happen pretty rarely, so momentum investors should also keep an eye on exit points.(NOTE: CRAMER OWNS MSFT for his charitable trust,
