Cramer's 5 "Unnatural Demand" Plays

Description:

"Violent upside moves don't just get created by earnings. They get created by supply, or lack thereof. And they get created by shorts who take away the natural supply and actually create unnatural demand.

I've been studying five of the most vicious moves up, looking for similarities, and they all have three ingredients:

1) fantastic, much better than expected earnings;
2) a skeptical if not downright negative cohort of analysts and short-sellers, spurred on by repeated quarterly disappointments; and
3) an incredibly small amount of stock to go around, much smaller than people might realize."

It's the way the market works, and you need to recognize it before you get hurt betting against companies where the upside is simply too out of control, too vicious to be contained.

These 5 stocks have been "floated" by unnatural demand. Keep an eye on them.
