Fallond / Trade Ideas / Jim Cramer : Oct 2nd

The market ETFs continue to outperform the picks of my newsletter, my Trade Ideas scan and Jim Cramer's Lightning round picks. Since August, the market ETFs have outperformed the other stock picks 40% of the time. This week was no exception. The ETF's returned an average of +1.70% pre trade, well ahead of next placed newsletter picks at -0.13%, with Jim Cramer's picks bringing up the rear with an average loss of -2.95% per trade.

Ironically, the best pick was one of Jim Cramer's: Continental Airlines, CAL, returning +7.71%. Worst pick was also from Jim Cramer: Quest Diagnostics, DGX, shed -17.90%.
