This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.
Jim Cramer, the storied investor and host of Mad Money, makes many daily buy or sell recommendationss on stocks. In today's edition, Austin discusses three bullish recommendations that he disagrees with: Siruis XM, Annaly Capital, and Zynga. Much of the disagreement has to do with the difference in investing styles here. Jim Cramer prefers to trade actively, while The Motley Fool supports the tactic of long-term investing. Despite short-term upside potential for these three companies, Austin is worried about what the three- to five-year outlook looks like for them.
