In a world where professional money managers state that a key to success is taking the emotion out of investing, Jim Cramer is injecting emotion right back into investing.

Every now and then I have an opportunity to watch Mad Money (Jim’s CNBC show).  I watch it for entertainment purposes, and only for entertainment purposes.  I never buy or sell a stock based solely on what Jim says.  Unfortunately, a lot of retail investors can’t say the same.  Jumping on a hot stock pick from a smart and enthusiastic Wall St. veteran is just too much temptation for too many people.

Recent articles have been published that state Cramer’s picks are less than stellar and that the broader market indexes tend to outperform his picks.

Even the so-called experts don’t always get it right.

Look at China Go! Fri, 20 Jul 2007 15:52:00 +0000 Anil Dilawri Gravity tells us that what goes up must, eventually, come down.  A theme at the start of 2007 was that China would start to see some softening in its economy following years of record growth.China_growth_2

Well, China isn’t slowing down….it’s not even rolling along…’s surging!

This week China reported second quarter growth in GDP of an incredible 11.9%.
So substantial was the growth figure that China moved to “cool” its economy today by boosting interest rates. 

Riding on the coattails of this continued surge in the Chinese economy are many oil, gas, gold, silver, uranium, copper, and other commodities companies throughout the world.  After all, these commodities are feeding China’s growth.

For IR professionals it has been somewhat of a challenge of late to justify the lofty valuation of their respective companies because of substantial gains in the recent past, primarily due to China’s growth.  Those same IR professionals will now enjoy being able to point to China’s latest growth figures, not only as justification for today’s lofty valuations, but as a significant data point in defense of further share price gains going forward.
