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

18:17 EDTAAPLHP, Lenovo shares up fractionally following PC shipment data
Shares of HP (HPQ) and Lenovo (LNVGY) are up fractionally after second quarter PC shipment data was released by Gartner and IDC. WHAT'S NEW: After eight quarters of declining shipments, worldwide PC shipments experienced flat growth in the second quarter of 2014, according to preliminary results by Gartner (IT). Worldwide PC shipments totaled 75.8M units in the second quarter, a 0.1% increase from the second quarter of 2013. According to the International Data Corporation, or IDC, Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker, Worldwide PC shipments totaled 74.4M units in the second quarter of, a year-on-year decline of -1.7%. The results reflect the smallest decline in global PC shipments since the second quarter of 2012 when declining shipments of mini notebooks combined with a surge in tablet sales to disrupt the PC market. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to IDC, the U.S. market showed strong 6.9% year-on-year growth in the second quarter. Continuing upgrades of Windows XP systems boosted shipments in commercial portables and desktops, helping the commercial segment. At the same time, retail acceptance of emerging product categories such as Chromebooks and ultraslims helped the consumer segment to stabilize. HP continued to hold the lead and gained 2% market share while four of the top 5 vendors experienced double-digit growth for the quarter. Lenovo and Toshiba (TOSBF) took advantage of some consumer interest in Windows 8 and a push to build up their presence in large enterprises. According to Gartner, Lenovo extended its lead as the leader in worldwide PC shipments, as its worldwide market share increased to 19.2%. Lenovo’s PC shipments grew by double-digits in all regions except Asia/Pacific. Lenovo’s shipment growth in Asia/Pacific was still faster than the regional average. OTHERS TO WATCH: Apple (AAPL), down marginally.
