Overheard Around the Web

Here’s what one trader on StockTwits recently had to say in regards to MA:

    $MA I usually think of Cramer as what opposite to do, but he has a huge following and this time statistics are on his side.
    Just be careful buying dips (then again, this could be that someone just missed the lows and needs a cheaper stock—I know I would like to buy some financial stocks a lot cheaper if the slide affects all markets)

    “The recent sell-off could be a sign that this bull’s getting long in the tooth,” CNBC’s Jim Cramer said, citing research from technical analyst Carley Garner.
    “Garner’s betting that the S&P 500 can give you one last gasp higher from here, followed by a truly savage sell-off,” the “Mad Money” host said.
    “I don’t know if she’s right, but that would be pretty par for the course for the historically hideous month of September,” he said.
