Who offers the best stock picks?

Is it Jim Cramer, Guru Focus, etc? Who has the best track record of picking good stocks?

John answers:

Cramer….hahahhaa he recommended Bank stocks in the 2008-2009 crisis

I don’t know the other guy…fact is their recommendations and others like them are rarely if ever ahead of common knowledge of real investors. Learn how to make these decisions yourself…you will be scammed less.

Sandra asks…

Sending my stock picks?

I am applying for an analyst position with a friend’s small, but prestigious brokerage firm. To stay in their mind I want to send them two stock picks of companies that I have researched and believe are good investments in the segment.

What format should I send the picks in. Should I just print out an entire report or just a key facts sheet with key stats (EPS, PE ratio etc.) and add my comments? (I plan to send hard copies as opposed to e-mail)

I do not want to bog them down with paper work but want my picks to look professional.

John answers:

I’d take as my example the stock reports produced by S&P or Ford or Morningstar or an outfit like that. I don’t mean replicating the format exactly, but supply approximately the same depth of detail, including at least one useful chart, description of the business, competitors, reasons for your forecast, etc.

Also, if it is possible for you to do so, I’d share them in PDF or Word (.doc) format as well as a printed copy. That way you have both bases covered no matter which their preference is.
