Jim, what is the fastest way to get rich quick investing in the stock market?-- Phil from Florida

James J. Cramer:

There are a lot of ways to get rich in the stock market, ranging from buying stocks on margin or putting a ton of dough on call options on volatile stocks. I most certainly do not recommend these methods to the vast majority of my listeners.

Why? Because while strategies like this can make you rich quickly, they can put you in the poorhouse even faster. So unfortunately, I can't provide any help on this topic!

Jimmy, is it time for Sun Microsystems (SUNW) - Get Sunworks, Inc. Report?-- Felipe from Brooklyn

James J. Cramer:

Unfortunately, I just don't see a strong market for Sun's commodity hardware. I did very well with Sun in the 1990's, but unfortunately those days are over and I don't think the company can grow very quickly.
