The Lightning Survey 1.2 (Postponed)

Please note: The Lightning Survey 1.2 has been postponed indefinitely in favor of the Travel Survey (In Progress).

Start Date:
End Date:

This study, along with the Lightning Survey 1.1, aims to survey the accuracy of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money Lightning Round.

For one week, from July 6 to July 10 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.

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 July 6, 2020 and ending on July 2, 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 the Total Gain (%) for each portfolio as a whole, and also publish the Total Gain ($) and Total Gain (%) for each stock. Daily highs will also be published at the end of the week.

Premarket and aftermarket prices will be ignored.
