Fallond / Trade Ideas / Jim Cramer : July 24th

The 1-week comparison for last Monday's picks wasn't even close. Jim Cramer's picks smoked the competition, his lightning round picks gained an average of +6.69% per trade. This was his best weekly return in 49 comparisons. The market ETFs were next up with an average gain of +2.96%, followed by the Trade Ideas picks at +1.61%. Only Jim Cramer and the market ETFs recorded a 100% win percentage. Unfortunately, my newsletter picks scored a loss of -1.71% with a 50% win percentage.

The biggest gainer on the week was a toss up between two of Jim's picks: GM and EGY gained +11.18% and +11.26% respectively. Not surprisingly, EMCI from my Breakout scan was the biggest loser dropping -11.72%.
