Jim Cramer Action Alerts Plus Review From: The Street, Inc.

Pros
Strong at entry points, good for new investors.

Cons
Weaker on exit calls, excessively large portfolio.

Verdict
Consider the free trial offer, and if you feel comfortable, buy it for one year. Jim Cramer was a winning hedge fund manager but his track record for picking stocks is mixed. He does have many supporters though.

No Guarantee of Success

A word of caution for new investors is that nobody has a magic wand to ensure guaranteed success in the stock markets. One of the customer reviews about Jim Cramer says, “I have watched people lose a lot of money following his newsletter. Some of his ideas pan out, eventually, but there can be a lot of pain along the way - and you don't know if the ideas will work out, or not, or how long it will be until you do know.”

In fact, Cramer's track record for picking stocks is not that special and buying and trading stocks because and when he says so is putting too much weight and trust in one person. There have been some amazing companies that he has downgraded or issued sell alerts on when the numbers did not support his recommendationon that particular stock.
