Financial expert Jim Cramer’s mission is “not to tell you what to think, but to teach you how to think about the market like a pro.” He believes that ordinary people can make big profits from investing their money as long as they put time and effort into learning how the market works behind the scenes.

Host of the popular CNBC financial show, “Mad Money,” Cramer is living proof of his own advice. While in law school, he started investing in stocks, promoting his holdings by leaving stock tips on his answering machine. He attracted the attention of several prominent business people including magazine owner Martin Peretz who entrusted him with $500,000 to invest; Cramer earned him a profit of $150,000 within two years.

Later Cramer created his own hedge fund, which averaged a 24% return after fees during his fourteen years running it prior to his retirement. During his time managing the hedge fund, he also appeared as a guest consultant on various CNBC shows eventually leading to the creation of “Mad Money.”

Cramer is also the cofounder of the digital financial media company TheStreet, which in 2014 was valued at $1.7 billion. Much like Cramer’s other media ventures and books, TheStreet’s mission is to provide everyday people with a variety of tools and resources to help users make informed investment decisions so that they can grow their wealth.

Conversation with Jim Cramer


Jim Cramer rejects the idea that the safest thing to do with your money is keep it in cash, CDs, and money funds, proposing that the actual value of these savings does not rise when one takes inflation into account. Rather he describes what he perceives to be the smartest way that someone can grow their money:investing it in stocks that have a long history of giving back.

“What you’re looking for is a company that yields between 2% and 5%,” he suggests. “I don’t want to do more than 5% right now unless I’m on a case by case basis, because sometimes the ones that yield more than 5% are often red flags. But [you want] a company with a long tradition of giving dividends – Proctor and Gamble, Emerson – that kind of company.”
