Hedge Funds Lose Big After Salesforce.com $CRM Slips Almost 11%

Jim Cramer told “Mad Money” viewers on October 31 that he’d rather bet with Salesforce.com (CRM) than against them (check it out here), explaining that the cloud business is stronger than many give it credit for. Cramer’s comments came just days after T2’s Whitney Tilson told CNBC that he would be shorting CRM (read the story).

It seems Tilson was right, at least in the short term.
