Jim Cramer says, "Let's talk big picture, or at least as big picture as I like to get. As all of you know I am not a topdown guy. I am not someone who is talking to a couple of cronies around the table and asking them how things are going, nor am I someone who puts all that much faith in government reports about how business overall is doing.. I don't rely on a group of young people to write memos to me about what's happening in the region.
I am someone who goes from the bottoms up. I listen to what the companies have to say and I try one, to make a judgment about their stocks, and two to make a prediction, out three to six months, about the market from that stock and others of its ilk that I might know about. It's my mosaic method of stock-picking and it has worked for me for 40 years.
The former, the individual company analysis, is easy. We have metrics about what we are looking for before we approach any stock and we are willing to drop anything to learn quickly, on the fly about a stock's action that might be impactful, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant the news might be. The latter, stitching together the amalgam, going from the anecdotal information from one company to a broader pastiche of empirical evidence is real hard, but we do it every day.

I listen to what the companies have to say and I try one, to make a judgment about their stocks, and two to make a prediction, out three to six months, about the market from that stock and others of its ilk that I might know about. It's my mosaic method of stock-picking and it has worked for me for 40 years."
