What do you think of Legg Mason (LM) - Get Free Report as a long-term investment?-- Brian from Virginia

James J. Cramer:

For investors with a long time horizon, Legg Mason is a good choice for the aggressive portion of a portfolio. It is a very well-managed and hugely profitable company, but the stock is fairly volatile.

Do you like the (CVGRX) - Get Free Report Calamos Growth Fund? -- John from New Jersey

James J. Cramer:

Calamos Growth is a very good aggressive growth fund that is heavily weighted in tech stocks like


(AAPL) - Get Free Report



(EBAY) - Get Free Report

. While this is not a good choice for more conservative investors, such as retirees, it has an excellent long-term record and is a solid choice for younger investors with a healthy appetite for risk.
