Why did you tell investors to take profits on DivX (DIVX) so soon after recommending it?-- Dina

Jim Cramer

: DivX made its move extremely quickly, so in this whipsaw market, I thought it made sense to take something off the table. In particular, these aggressive growth stocks tend to bounce around a lot, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the stock continue falling. This could actually create a new buying opportunity.

What do you think of Syngas International (SYNI) ?-- Emilia

Jim Cramer

: I am not a fan of alternative energy here, and in any case, Syngas is a penny stock which I believe should be avoided. These stocks are often very illiquid making them highly volatile, and generally it is difficult to do homework on penny stocks due the lack of available information.
