I love his show! I sometimes follow his advice, but then again, i think he moves the market himself. People watch, then they buy what he tells them. The next day its up. BOOYA

Hi! I just posted about this very same topic! LOL Have you read his newest book yet? I just started it and I plan to get a notebook and a pen and watch the show, too! I'm glad to hear some positive feedback about the stock tips! I'd love to hear any experiences you've had trading stock. :-)

Hi! I was hoping you would respond even though this post is pretty old! LOL I was just in the library a few weeks ago when I saw the new book and just grabbed it. I was following Robert Kiyosaki's advice to learn as much as I can. Now that I know who Jim Cramer is, I can enjoy his show! I was looking forward to the lightning round, but he didn't have it tonight! LOL According to the experts, I have the typical mutual fund "diversified" portfolio. I have not attempted to do any stock trading on my own... yet. After finding out that most advisors don't have any more financial training and knowledge than I do, I decided I better start stepping up my game and learning how to make better investments. Have you done any trading on your own? Do you have an online broker you like? :-)

yes i trade online with a company named sharebuilder. every tuesday, you can purchase stock for $4.00, other wise it is 15.95 reatime, when you sell any other time, or purchase any other time. its a pretty good deal. i also purchased a few etf's and just put about 100 every month into those.. they pay good dividends. as do most of my "stoks".. its true you know, advisors really don't know much more than us. its just a chance. i wake up to bloomberg in the morning, and end with cramer at night. if you watch any of cnbc, you pretty much get the jist of what is going on. yahoo finace page has much knowledge too, as well as msn money page. they are both good info pages. and i go with my gut instincts alot! buy when you think you can make a hundred or more, then jump out, to the next one,, pretty soon you have yourself some "mad money"!!!!

I read all his books and I love them. I prefer to read the books over watching Mad Money.

its a fun show to watch, i just don't always do what he says to do. i think you really need to be on top of things to day trade.
