Jim Cramer is not an idiot, and he has been saying for a couple of years that there are few opportunities to buy steady growing companies, and there are lots of people who will ONLY buy companies with big double-digit growth.
CMG had people thinking the days of double-digit growth were coming to an end. Now they have pulled some tricks out of their behind to extend it for awhile and the lemmings have no choice but to keep piling in for awhile longer.
Nobody. Just the computers in the data centers held by sovereign wealth funds, hedgies, Goldman Sachs. Human beings aren't doing this. It's just the algorithms doing what they do. Buy the stock. Sell the calls. Short the stock. Sell the puts. Spreads, straddles......tick, tock, tick, tock...every second....These are not buy and hold transactions. This is multi-million dollar micro fraction trades.
