Even after a fifth day of declines, Jim Cramer said it's still not time to throw in the towel. He said the many negatives: weak unemployment, low business confidence, declining Chinese imports and the mess that is the Italian bond market are already factored into the market. Also, the markets have had an incredible run since September and are due for a pullback. But what's not factored into the markets, said Cramer, are earnings and earnings surprises like those delivered by Alcoa (AA). The markets are also sending all stocks lower, which creates opportunities for the sectors that don't deserve that punishment. Cramer said he simply cannot be bearish on restaurants or retail when oil prices are likely to retreat, nor can he be bearish on high-growth stocks or on companies that prosper when their fuel costs are falling. OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer and colleague Tim Collins went over the health of the overall market as seen through a technician's eyes. Collins used a recent chart of the S&P 500 to note that the index took a turn for the worse Tuesday after it fell below a key level of 1370. He said after that point, sector after sector began to get crushed as the selling intensified. Collins noted that the S&P Homebuilder ETF (XHB) looked as if it was going to test its 50-day moving average once again and bounce higher, but after Tuesday's action, the chart has now turned ugly. Collins noted similar patterns with the S&P Retail ETF (XRT), SPDR Financial ETF (XLF) and the SPDR Technology ETF (XLK), all of which showed a shimmer of hope until Tuesday's selling gained steam. Cramer recommends that investors stick with the fundamentals of individual high-growth stocks and use a longer time horizon. Next, Cramer reminded viewers, as he once again highlighted Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) as a quality growth company that investors should consider for their portfolios. Even after Tuesday's selloff, shares of Chipotle are only 2% off their 52-week high. Cramer told viewers not to chase Chipotle shares higher and to instead wait for a market pullback, and buy in on the cheap over time. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with John Schiller, chairman and CEO of Energy XXI (EXXI), a little-known oil driller that is proving there's still a lot of money to be made drilling for oil. With oil prices near record levels, the oil fields purchased from Exxon-Mobil (XOM) just a few years ago are now windfalls for Energy XXI. Schiller said he sees oil trading between $115 and $140 a barrel longer term. Cramer said that Energy XXI, while not a household name, is one oil driller that should be on every investor's radar. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer opined on the sudden departure of Best Buy's (BBY) CEO. Cramer has been negative on Best Buy for ages, and agrees with many who feel that the company may not survive its battle with online retailers who can sell their commodity items for less money and often without sales tax. Cramer also agreed that Best Buy squandered its cash by spending $1.5B to buy back shares. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) MON; HEK; BRCM; OC. (Bearish) SU; AMAT; VVUS; SGI. Reference Link
