5 Big Takeaways from Jim Cramer & Marc Chaikin’s “2018 Stock Market Kickoff”

In case you missed it, on January 31st, Chaikin Analytics CEO & Founder, Marc Chaikin, sat down with host of CNBC’s Mad Money, Jim Cramer, for a special event where they went head-to-head on some of the most talked about stocks and sectors right now.

Didn’t get a chance to watch? Don’t worry. Here are some of the biggest takeaways that you don’t want to miss:

1. Marc and Jim both love Alphabet (GOOGL). Why? Two letters: A.I.

“A.I. has been around a long time, but at Google, A.I. is generating revenue.” – Marc Chaikin 

2. A good company does not mean a good stock. Case in point: Nividia (NVDA).

“Obviously it is a good company, but the question is, ‘is it a good stock?’” – Marc Chaikin 

3. Stocks like Boeing (BA) are why investors need to ignore the headlines.

“Boeing is a prototypical case where investors have to ignore the headlines.” – Marc Chaikin

4. Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT’s) are big mistake right now. Here’s why:“Millenials are starting to moving out of their parents homes, they’re not renting anymore, they’re buying.” – Marc Chaikin 

5. Beware the Tesla (TSLA) hype.

“Drive the car, sell the stock.” – Marc Chaikin
