    Cramer is the present day Dan Dorfman

    "you can understand why he likes the stock and pick one in the same feild and play the earnings. I.e MSFT instead of GME for Halo release"

    --> To be clear, HALO represented a "very small" portion of what caused msft to pop after their earnings. The fact that their entertainment division is doing better (even with that stupid Zune) is a nice addition to their results but is still a relatively small bug on the windshield. If that division was a spun company of msft then Halo would have been significant to that spun off stock.

    GITA!!!

    • understood and agreed. However that was why cramer did not rec MSFt. But and this is a big but The Hype around Halo3 caused the stock to rise. It gave it media attention for an entire week after its release. It caused people to look more into this tired old company. Vista and the computer upgrade cycle gave it the real numbers but Halo gave it its hook. Therefore MSFT got more of a push from Halo3 than GME AFTER its release since HALO3 was priced into GME before the release.

      Same thing with AG and DE. It was a good day today in both of those names. I had stock in AG and calls in DE. Still hold a couple of calls for DE. Have a conference on NOV 7 watch this sector its on fire. AG,DE,CNH all at or near 52week highs.
