If you have ever watched CNBC for more than two minutes you have probably come across an over caffeinated personality known as Jim Cramer. He is successful ex-hedge fund manager that turned his love for everything stocks into a successful second career as an author, market commentator for CNBC, and host of his own show Mad Money. Love him or hate him, he provides an insight to the stock market through the eyes of a seasoned investor.
What is Action Alerts PLUS
Jim Cramer’s Action Alerts PLUS is a subscription service through TheStreet.com. It was started in 2001 as a way to follow the investment decisions for his charitable trust portfolio. The charitable trust was setup with Cramer’s own money and the goal of giving any realized profits to charity.
The Action Alerts PLUS service alerts subscribers by email and through the website when Cramer and his research team recommend a stock to be bought or sold. As well as providing subscribers with a reference tool for investing and trading in the stock market.
