Jim Cramer and Billionaire Steven Cohen Love These Stocks

Jim Cramer is widely followed by ordinary investors. He is a former hedge fund manager and the host of CNBC’s Mad Money today. On the TV show, Cramer shares his views on publicly traded companies with his audience, helping many people make their own investments. Cramer also has a charitable trust and purchases many of the stocks he recommends for the trust. Steven Cohen, one of the legendary traders, is currently ranked as the 35th richest man in America with an estimated net worth of $9.3 billion. Cohen started SAC Capital Advisors in 1992 with $20 million. Today, the fund manages more than $15 billion. The flagship fund of SAC Capital is up about 8% through the end of November last year.
