The Lightning Survey 1.1 (In Progress)

Start Date: June 1, 2020
End Date: May 28, 2021

This study aims to survey the accuracy of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money Lightning Round.

From June 1 to June 4 we will review the Lightning Round stocks and select the stocks recommended and not recommended. The speculative stocks, the “I’m ok with it” stocks, long terms, “I’m fine with it,” and stocks where Cramer recommends other stocks instead will be ignored. We are looking for the strong and confident buys and don’t buys. (Note: the Lightning Survey 1.2 will start July 6th. Update: 1.2 has been postponed in favor of the Travel Survey).

The recommended stocks will be placed in a “bullish” portfolio, and the not recommended stocks will be placed in a “bearish” portfolio.

We will track these stocks for 1 year and look for potential profits to be made starting on June 8, 2020 and ending on May 28, 2021.

 

For the Bullish portfolio

  • We will buy (paper trade) 1 share.
  • The buy price will be the price the stock closed at on the day it is mentioned in the lightning round. (ex. Monday’s Lightning Round will use Monday’s closing price).
  • We are looking for a minimum profit of %20 at any time throughout the year.

For the Bearish portfolio

  • We will buy (paper trade) 1 share.
  • The buy price will be the price the stock closed at on the day it is mentioned in the lightning round.
  • We are looking for this stock to remain under a 10% profit from the buy price throughout the year. At no time throughout the year should these stocks produce a +10% profit.

At the end of each week, we will publish an update listing the Total Daily Gain (%) for each portfolio as a whole, and also publish the Daily Highs for each stock. Updates can be found on the bottom of this page.

Premarket and aftermarket prices will be ignored.
