21:45 EDTAAPL, CLD, MTW, CONN, PCLN, CZR, DLPH, LVS, MGM, SHW, CBS, SBUX, PRAAJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer responded to critics who have been complaining that he's been too bullish on the markets and is too confident that stocks are heading higher. The critics want Cramer to recommend selling everything, based on the old adage "sell in May, and go away." But Cramer reminded viewers that things are simply better now, which is why being complacent is the reckless strategy. He said if investors truly feel that the Fed controls stock prices, by all means, sell. But, he said, that decision will keep investors out of stocks like Apple (AAPL) and others like Starbucks (SBUX) and Las Vegas Sands (LVS), all of which are markedly higher. Cramer said, in his view, if the Fed stops stimulating the economy, then that means things are getting better, and if not, they'll still continue to assist the markets. A win either way. There's a lot to like in these markets, said Cramer, which is why a more positive outlook is the prudent one, one that can capitalize on the market's 20% move so far this year. Next, Cramer kicked off a week-long series featuring great American growth companies. He said the era of mindlessly trading sectors or ETFs based on meaningless metrics like "risk on" is over. Once again, investors want solid companies with solid growth. Cramer identified 10 characteristics to look for in a growth stock. Taking into account all of the 10 metrics, Apple tops this list. He said Apple is still in the early innings with many of its products, yet the company has solid plans and all of the resources it needs to execute them. Apple is also not held hostage to global economic whims nor higher costs. Cramer also highlighted another spectacular growth stock, Starbucks (SBUX). Starbucks is expanding into the single-serve coffee market as well as internationally. The company's end markets are certainly big enough to support its growth, said Cramer, and Starbucks has become a fierce competitor around the globe. Starbucks also returns capital to shareholders via its dividend. It has international growth and the shares are not expensive. Starbucks also has a solid balance sheet. Then, Cramer said the shares of CBS (CBS) simply shouldn't be selling for as little a price as they're fetching. WHAT THE HECK: Cramer said now that spring is here and home prices are slowly building, home-improvement stocks like Sherwin-Williams (SHW) make perfect sense. No wonder the company had same-store sales increase by 20% and was able to pre-announce gigantic earnings, Cramer concluded. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) MGM; LVS; DLPH; CZR; PCLN. (Bearish) CONN; MTW; CLD; PRAA. Reference Link

09:39 EDTCLDCloud Peak updates 2014 shipment, adjusted EBITDA outlook
The company updated its guidance for 2014 coal shipments for its three owned and operated mines to between 83 million and 86 million tons, compared to its July 29, 2014 guidance of 85 million to 89 million tons. The Company also updated its guidance for 2014 Adjusted EBITDA to between $170M-$200M. On July 29, the company issued 2014 Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $180M-$210M. Colin Marshall, Cloud Peak Energy’s President and CEO said, “As we previously stated, our earlier guidance ranges were dependent upon an improvement in rail performance through the end of the year. While we believe the rail performance issues are being addressed, the reality is that the improvements have not taken place at a sufficiently robust pace to allow us to maintain our previous guidance. In addition, in late August our Cordero Rojo Mine was impacted by a significant rain storm causing flooding and damage to some equipment, which will slow shipments and cause us to incur some additional costs. Accordingly, we are updating our Adjusted EBITDA and shipment guidance ranges to reflect these impacts.”
