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 co-founder of the digital financial media company TheStreet, which is valued at around $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.
Cramer is the founder of TheStreet, a multimedia provider of financial commentary.
He graduated from Harvard College where he was President of the prestigious daily The Harvard Crimson. After graduation he became a reporter for the Tallahassee Democrat and later for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner where he covered stories ranging from homicides to sporting events.
Cramer is a former hedge fund manager and founder/owner of Cramer Berkowitz. Cramer compounded rate of return of 24% after all fees for 14 years at Cramer Berkowitz. He retired from his hedge fund in 2001, where he finished with one of the best records in the business, including having a plus 36% year in 2000.
He helped Steve Brill launch American Lawyer magazine before attending Harvard Law School and earned a law degree. Upon graduating and passing the New York State Bar Examination and being admitted to the NY State Bar, Cramer joined Goldman Sachs in sales and trading. While at Goldman, Cramer wrote for The New Republic about stock market issues.
In October 2009, he published his latest book, Jim Cramer′s Getting Back to Even. Cramer is also the author of Stay Mad For Life: Get Rich, Stay Rich, Mad Money: Watch TV, Get Rich, Jim Cramer′s RealMoney: Sane Investing in an Insane World, Confessions of a Street Addict and You Got Screwed! How Wall Street Tanked and How You Can Prosper.
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.”

The famed market analyst and former $500 million hedge fund manager teaches audiences how to find opportunity and avoid loss starting from even the most bearish markets. Don’t worry if you had trouble staying awake in economics class, because Cramer’s no-nonsense dynamic presentation style will have you with him from start to finish, leaving you better equipped to make the best of your assets.
