Consolidated Cramer Collapses

I’d like to start off with something the comic Todd Barry said when he was presenting at the Comedy Central Roast of Chevy Chase many years ago:

When I found out I was going to be roasting Chevy, everyone pretty much said the same thing: They said roasting Chevy Chase is like shooting fish in a barrel. Actually it wasn’t “everyone” it was just my four-year old nephew. But roasting Chevy Chase isn’t as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. It’s as easy as looking at fish in a barrel. It’s as easy as being somewhere near a barrel.

This is precisely how I feel about illustrating the horrific stock market picks of the $5,000,000/year (CNBC base salary) investing “guru” known as Jim Cramer, who is perhaps the most famous stock market prognosticator on the entire planet. He’s so famous, he was even featured in the Iron Man movies.

Please note that I started to make this video with the intent of it being a free, general purpose market update. But, about eight minutes in, I realized it was so damned good, only paying members should see it. Thus, if you’re not a subscriber, you’ll see n nothing but empty air.

Be reminded that you can subscribe immediately by clicking here and get instant access, and that I’ve already decided that I priced Slope preposterously cheaply, and I’ll be cranking rates much higher on July 1. If you subscribe before then, you’ll lock in the crazy-low rates for as long as you’re a subscriber.
