Between 1988 and 2000 the fund only had one year of negative returns. It returned 47% in 1999 and 28% in 2000, beating the market by 38 percentage points.

Jim Cramer also owns a charitable trust and purchases some of the stocks that he recommends on TV for this trust. Here are Jim Cramer's stock picks in the technology sector.

EMC Corporation (EMC) is the largest technology position in Cramer’s charitable trust. Cramer owns 4,700 shares of EMC, which are worth about $124,000. EMC has an average analyst recommendation score of 1.80 (1=strong buy, 2=buy, 3=hold, 4=sell, 5=strong sell). We agree with the analysts. However, the company is also facing a lot of competition and pricing pressure in the storage segment. But we think these risks are offset by its leading position in the market. EMC also has a strong balance sheet and a record of generating consistent free cash flow. EMC is also quite popular among hedge funds tracked by us. At the end of the third quarter, there were 37 hedge funds with EMC positions. For example, billionaire Ken Fisher is the most fund manager about EMC. Fisher Asset Management had $461 million invested in EMC at the end of September. Bill Miller’s Legg Mason Capital Management also had $170 million invested in this stock.
