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

08:42 EDTAAPLIcahn sees Apple launching UltraHD TV set in FY16
Carl Icahn stated in an open letter posted to his "Shareholder's Square Table" addressed to Apple CEO Tim Cook: "While Apple has not announced plans for a TV set and may never do so, we believe we have good enough reason to expect the introduction of an UltraHD TV set in FY 2016. We think television represents a large opportunity for Apple, one that reaches far beyond “the hobby” that Apple TV currently represents...As the home represents one compelling category for Apple, payments represents another...We estimate that, based upon Apple Pay’s rumored fee of 15 bps of all spend on credit and debit cards...and merchant deployment of NFC reaching 80%+ in 2017, Apple in the U.S. could generate revenues...of $2.5 billion in FY 2017 if it reaches 30% market share of all spend on U.S. credit and debit cards. The potential in the U.S. and internationally over a longer term is much larger."
