Cramer’s new tech

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I am not a big fan of Jim Cramer, and I watch his Mad Money show (CNBC) mostly for entertainment. But he recently comes out this new tech series, which is a kind interesting.

What is new tech?
According to Cramer’s definition, old tech means the traditional sillicon valley stocks: Apple, Cisco, Google are good examples. We all know old tech companies, solve problems for business and consumers. They make the business more effient (Cisco, Oracle), and make our lives more entertaining (iPod, iPhone). Cramer thinks, with the global energy, environment, and food problems we are facing, the New tech, which are mostly old industrial companies, are trying to solve those larger problems.
