21:30 EDTCLNE, NAV, WPRT, GM, TECD, ASNA, DD, AAPL, PEP, BBBY, HNZ, NOV, AAJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer told viewers that while the health of the Chinese economy is a factor for U.S. stocks, the recent weakness is a blessing in disguise, giving some of our overblown stocks a chance to rest and recharge. Cramer said that while China is important, U.S. markets are strong enough now that they no longer have to follow the Chinese in lock-step. "If oil calms down, the Chinese can engineer a soft landing," he said. So which stocks will be most affected by China? Cramer said the materials stocks, like Alcoa (AA), will continue to be weak, as will the oil stocks, led by National Oilwell Varco (NOV) which has cratered 8% in the past two weeks. But on the plus side, Cramer said opportunities are being created in the defensive stocks, names like Heinz (HNZ) and also the drug stocks. Cramer said he likes Bed Bath and Beyond (BBBY) and Pepsico (PEP) on weakness. Cramer said the tech sector likely won't rally without the help of Apple (AAPL). But with Apple scheduling a product announcement on Wednesday, even the tech sector should be ready to rally again by mid-week. Next, Cramer said when people think of DuPont (DD), they see a big industrial conglomerate, but in reality, DuPont is the world's second largest chemical company which has its hands in everything from agriculture to personal safety products. DuPont's agriculture division will introduce 154 new corn products this year alone. It's performance chemicals business is also on fire. DuPont also has emerging market exposure. DuPont shares trade at a scant 11x earnings,below the average S&P 500 multiple of 14x. Cramer said the shares deserve a higher multiple. WHAT THE HECK: Ascena Retail Group (ASNA) is the new name of Dress Barn, which now includes the Maurice's and Justice store chains. This all-but-forgotten retail stock shocked analysts with a 16c earnings beat on a 14% rise in revenues, and a raise in guidance. Shares are up 38% so far this year and over 53% since Cramer last spoke to the company's CEO just six months ago. Trading at just 13x earnings with a 15% growth rate, Ascena shares are a steal and are worthy of a place in every investor's portfolio, Cramer said. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with Robert Dutkowsky, CEO of Tech Data (TECD). Dutkowsky said that Tech Data just had the best Q4 in 11 years, with strength across the board. The company continues to be bullish about tech spending in Europe. Tech Data is now focused on the hottest areas of technology, such as data centers and cloud computing. Cramer said there are two takeaways from Tech Data. First, technology spending is still strong and second, this is one cheap stock. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer proclaimed that the natural gas revolution is here, thanks in part to the General Motors (GM) announcement of a natural gas powered Chevy pickup. Cramer continued to be bullish on Westport Innovations (WPRT), Navistar (NAV) and Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE). Reference Link

11:15 EDTAAPLGT Advanced retreats after analyst downgrades stock
Shares of sapphire maker GT Advanced (GTAT) are falling after research firm CLSA downgraded the stock in a note to investors today. The firm cited concerns about increased costs associated with the company's deal with Apple as the main reason for the downgrade. WHAT'S NEW: GT Advanced's costs associated with its deal to supply sapphire to Apple are being impacted by low yields, CLSA analyst Mark Heller wrote after speaking with strategic consulting firm Yole Développement. Lower yields will reduce the amount of sapphire that GT Advanced can produce for Apple, and will negatively affect GT’s profit margins, explained Heller. He believes that GT Advanced's risk/reward ratio is balanced at current levels, and downgraded his rating on the shares to Underperform from Outperform. However, he raised his price target on the shares to $19 from $18. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, GT Advanced fell 2% to $18.

09:41 EDTGMGM recalls Silverados, Sierras equipped with auxiliary battery
GM is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Chevrolet Silverado HD 2500/3500 trucks manufactured January 18, 2007, to June 22, 2011, and GMC Sierra HD 2500/3500 trucks manufactured January 22, 2007, to June 21, 2011, and equipped with an auxiliary battery. Owners may unknowingly draw too much current through the vehicle's trailer harness resulting in the melting of fusible link for the auxiliary battery. If the fusible link melts it may come into contact with adjacent components, damage the electrical center cover, the nearby wiring harness conduit and other vehicle components, increasing the risk of a fire. GM will notify owners and dealers will replace the jumper harness with one that includes a 40 amp inline fuse, and provide the owner with supplemental Owner Manual information, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Reference Link
