Richard Chilton's Chilton Investment Company had $138 million invested in WLT at the end of March. (see Chilton's top holdings here).
  2. Cramer admitted that he called this one wrong. He recommended this stock on the belief that it would be taken over. Not realizing that earnings would be this bad, Cramer recommends waiting until the stock falls about 5 points lower and then buying it.

    This firm takes advantage of our aging population and is far less dependent upon Medicare than similar companies. Currently, only 3% of our residents pay through Medicare.

  7. During the August 2 show, about Carrizo Oil & Gas, Chesapeake Energy, Pioneer Natural Resources, Cramer said:

    These got hurt today, that last one's down four points. A lot of people continue to underestimate these companies, which is what's occurring obviously when you have a stock fly up seven points on a day like today. What makes it so hard for people to understand that we have a huge amount of energy trapped beneath our ground, ready for the drilling? I blame it on perception, the perception that it takes years between the times that we start drilling and the moment when we finally find oil. I think there's a belief that anyone who even mentions the idea of breaking the back of OPEC is regarded as a dreamer.
