Jim Cramer, the host of Mad Money on CNBC and a former hedge fund manager, has built a cult following over the years in the finance world through a broadcast career that places an emphasis on helping investors build long-term wealth through smart investments. Cramer has been bullish on new technology like crypto and cloud services for a long time, unlike other money managers from his generation that generally scoff at the growth-focused ideas Cramer often espouses. The journalist and investor has a net worth of around $150 million.
Cramer recently launched the CNBC Investor Club, a subscriber-based platform for investors where they can access exclusive behind-the-scenes knowledge about the portfolio management activities of the legendary investor. He has left his position with The Street, a publication he co-founded more than two decades ago, for the club. Cramer made his name in the finance world through a successful stint as a stockbroker at Goldman Sachs, and then as the manager of Cramer Levy Partners, a hedge fund. He subsequently pursued a career in the news industry.
The deal with CNBC is testament to the incredible popularity of Cramer among young investors in particular. News outlets have been transitioning to digital and testing subscriber-based models as they seek to reinvent themselves for the digital age. Cramer, whose hedge fund generated returns of over 20% for fourteen years, per a report in Bloomberg, is one of the few investors whose philosophy resonates with the retail frenzy at the market. The CNBC deal could prove to cement his place in the community even further.
Investors who want to follow the footsteps of Cramer should look into some of the stocks he recently recommended on his show, including General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), Roblox Corporation (NYSE:RBLX), and DexCom, Inc. (NASDAQ:DXCM), among others discussed in detail below.
These were picked keeping in mind the latest calls that Cramer made on these equities on his Mad Money show aired by news platform CNBC. Analyst ratings and latest news about each stock is discussed in detail below to provide readers with some context for their investment decisions.
The hedge fund sentiment around each stock was calculated using the data of 873 hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey.

“Tandem Diabetes Care provides the t:slim X2 Insulin Delivery System for treating insulin-dependent diabetes. Tandem offers the smallest durable insulin pump available, and with DexCom CGM (continuous glucose monitoring) integration. Tandem has led the development of more automated control of insulin dosing featuring its BasalHQ and Control-IQ algorithms. The company also sells insulin reservoir cartridges and infusion sets for use with its pumps. Tandem stock underperformed after the company announced third quarter results and 2020 guidance that was somewhat weaker than expected. As a durable insulin pump company, Tandem is more tied to new patient demand, which has been suppressed due to the pandemic. There are also some competitive concerns in 2021. with two other established companies planning to launch new products. However, Tandem also has a series of new products for 2021. including its mobile bolus feature, its new t-sport pump and an enhanced version of its current Control-IQ algorithm. We believe these new products are being underappreciated by investors.”
