The tool was pumping JNJ but had Listerine and Visine on his set when pumping. Is he THAT bid of a fool, since they are produced by Pfizer or did I miss something?
Cramer is doing "backcasting". When a stock has had a nice run, people like Cramer pump it. It can appear that you knew in advance it was going up. Backcasting takes much less skill than forecasting. One just has to look backward and see what happened.
Now Buffett announced some weeks ago that he bought a good positon in JNJ, that was due to "forecasting".
