Jim Cramer's Mad MoneyTo celebrate three months of The Simple Dollar (it’s a quarter of a year old!), I’m giving away a copy of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money! This is Jim’s newest book and is fresh off the presses; it’s currently #25 in sales (as I write this) among all books at, and I’m giving it away!

What do I have to do to enter? All you have to do is leave a comment on this thread that contains the ticker symbol of your pick of the best stock to buy for 2007. Your entry must include a valid email address. Only one entry per address; if I see multiple entries from the same address, all entries will be disqualified.

When does the contest end? The contest ends at 11:59 PM UTC on February 2, 2006. There’s no time better than the present to enter!

What is the prize? The prize is a copy of Jim Cramer’s Mad Money shipped to an address within the continental United States that is provided when I contact the winner. I will also announce the winner on this site using the name provided in the comment they left in this thread, along with highlighting their stock pick.

How is the winner selected? I will choose one entry entirely at random from among the entries using a random number generation program. I will then contact the winner to request a mailing address for the book.

Are you going to review Mad Money on The Simple Dollar? Yes. Look for it in a week or two. I didn’t want to overload on the Jim Cramer comment after reviewing another book of his so recently.

  1. My best choice for 2007 should have also been my best choice for 2006: AT&T …symbol = “T”. Let’s face it, with the new synergies with Cingular, AT&T will just take over.

  2. Conserving energy is becoming more and more important in order to sustain our climate, so I’m all for these sorts of companies.

    Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. (ENER)

  3. My pick is PPS, but don’t quote me on it!
    After all, the REIT market has been on a tear in recent years, so maybe you should be shorting it, hehe.

  4. I’d pick Berkshire Hathaway. B-shares (BRKB)at 3,560 a share are probably more reasonable for most of us unless you have 106K to spare :)

  5. Fastenal — FAST

    Fastenal supplies customers, including manufacturers and commercial contractors, with 271,000 varieties of fasteners and 310,000 general-purpose maintenance, repair, and operations products. The company utilizes 12 North American distribution centers and an in-house truck fleet to facilitate five deliveries per week to roughly 85% of its 1,700-plus company-owned stores. Fastenal’s over 6,700 store employees receive incentive compensation based on new account development.

    Opened 245 stores in 2006. Sales and earnings up 16.8 and 16.4% respectively. Morningstar has it Fair Valued in the low 50′s. Currently at 35.58.

  6. JBLU … it seems like they are adding new destinations every other day, I know the Airline sector can be risky but I like the growth possibilities of JetBlue

  7. TSCDY

    Actually this is an ADR of Tesco, which is a foreign company. They have been working somewhat undercover in the US for over a year at bringing their brand over here to take on the likes of Wal-Mart and other discount retailers. They already have a dominant presence in the UK and Asia.

  8. JSDA: Jones Soda Co. has recently announced that they’re coming out with cans in addition to their classic bottles, and will announce their retailers in March. If they come out with Walmart or Target or another big name, they could take a gigantic jump.

    On the other hand, the p/e ratio seems super elevated in comparison to other consumer non-durable goods (104 to KO’s 40, yikes.) That’s not good for such a small company.

  9. Hi everyone. I am new to stocks but I have been following NRWS.OB
    I pick this because my friend that owns millions of dollars just did something (that i can’t explain) and has been telling me since last week to get on it while its low.

  10. Having a 5+ year track record of consistent dividends and currently yielding over 25%, my pick is NovaStar Financial (NFI). In addition, mREITs are out of favor, and I like buying when others are selling as long as the fundamentals are solid.

  11. I have to go with T. The synergies gained from combining Bellsouth and Cingular into AT&T and the push into IPTV with U-Verse make this a winner.

  12. GE – Just took a big hit and I like them selling off the “dead weight” industrial divisions (GE Supply, GE Polymerland, etc) and focusing on financial services and healthcare.

  13. AAPL- AppleTV,iPhone,Steve Jobs. Who could ask for more. This computer is going to continue to innovate in the technology sector for years to come.

  14. I like SUNW. I have been watching it for years now & It seems like a good stock for those under the $10 point, but I’m not a stock anylist so it just looks good to me!!! Otherwise GE for me all the way!

  15. I’m only invested in mutual funds so it wouldn’t be fair to give an opinion on stocks that I can’t back up. I’m with Blaine, VFINX, a nice taste of 500 stocks.

  16. I’ll go with JBLUE.

    Great response from the customers plus I like how the company seeks new markets to expand.

    I can use the book!:)

  17. Actually, heres one thing Cramer says about stocks… companies who are popular with the 18-25 aged group do well, not because of financial reasons, but because they are popular.

    Thus, I think I may pick Apple because Apple has gone and formed an entire cult, thus no matter how bad Apple’s products are, they and their stock will always perform well.
