One Key Investing Lesson That Can Benefit Your Fantasy Football Draft

Yes, investing and fantasy football do intersect. Curious how the two complement each other? Jeff Marks, senior portfolio analyst with Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust, and a member of Cramer's fantasy league, talked to TheStreet about the key lesson he applies to both investing and fantasy football. "Okay, so what I did is basically you don't want to draft a player on a bad team on a bad offense. And that kind of goes along the lines of saying, we don't like to buy stocks that...may be great companies, but they're in bad neighborhoods. So, let's just take, for example, BP ...They're doing everything right. The free cash flow is great. Its production is expected to grow. They have a really strong pipeline, multi-year pipeline, and they're ready to raise the dividend that already yields close to probably around 7%. I think it's a high 6.8%. But the stock can get ahead of itself because it's just in such a hated group. And I take that and I look at fantasy football. If you're on a bad team with a bad all offense, you can't move the ball," said Marks. More from Cramer Today Full Replay:What Trade War?
