Many bears complain that the markets have risen too far, too fast. However, Jim Cramer reminded viewers that stocks are still cheap when compared to various other points in history. Cramer put Apple's (AAPL) parabolic rise into context. He divided its share price by ten. Using that arithmetic, Apple was a $40 stock that's risen to $55. "That's not a big move," declared Cramer. Apple still has a P/E ratio of just 13x, while the average stock in the S&P 500 is trading at 14x. He also compared Apple to similar high-growth names, like Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) and Under Armour (UA). Both of these stocks have price earnings multiples of 40x. Cramer also discounted fears about the retail sector, noting that job growth trumps any rise in gasoline prices and will keep this sector humming along. His only true worry are the transports. But even here, a case can be made that weak coal demand is hurting the rails while higher fuel prices is crimping the airlines. Cramer said that stocks will slip and slide from time to time, but added that if investors get too negative, they will miss brilliant moves by Apple and others. KNOW YOUR IPO: Cramer said unlike Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP), average investors can actually get shares of the Demandware (DWRE) IPO, and the company actually has a good subscription based business model to boot. Demandware expects to come public trading around 5.5x its sales, but Cramer said the company deserves a premium multiple around 7x sales given its potential for growth. That would make Demandware IPO shares a steal up to $16 a share. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer once again welcomed Alan McKim, president and CEO of Clean Harbors (CLH), which is in the business of making dirty industries cleaner. The company on Feb. 22 beat earnings by 24c on higher revenue and raised full-year guidance. McKim was bullish on Clean Harbors' outlook on the manufacturing sector. Cramer continued his recommendation. Cramer also spoke with Jeffrey Friedman, chairman, president and CEO of Associated Estates Realty (AEC), an apartment real estate REIT that operates 52 apartment properties in 8 states and has a 4% dividend yield. Friedman was all to eager to offer a different perspective to Cramer's recent pan of the entire apartment REIT sector. Cramer said he was wrong to put the entire sector into the same boat. He said that Associated Estates has a good yield and good growth, and the apartment REITs should be considered on a company by company basis. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer said he sees no area where Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) has a dominant position, except maybe in printers. But even there, customers would love to be freed from confusing, over-priced ink cartridge refills. Cramer said he seeing rivals like SAP (SAP) cherry-picking HP's consulting business, while Apple continues to dominate in phones, tablets, notebooks and desktops.

10:44 EDTAAPLNetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.
