04:20 EDTAAPL, APU, ZNGA, NILE, ATML, INTC, EOG, SMG, LULU, CELG, AGN, ROST, CMG, SBUX, WWEJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer said that if investors really want to sell, they should take a deep breath and wait, but even more prudent would be to do a little buying.He explained that selling into a panic is often the worst time to sell. Cramer recalled the seven great American growth stocks he featured in April, stocks that included Apple (AAPL), Starbucks (SBUX), Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), Ross Stores (ROST), Allergan (AGN), Celgene (CELG) and Lululemon Athletica (LULU). All of these names, he said, are the perfect stocks to revisit after this week's market pullback. In all seven cases, Cramer said that these companies have superior growth, excellent management and long-term trends that transcend the market's short-term volatility. He said, the smart move would be to wait for the markets to take these great names lower and scoop them up while they're on sale. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer sat down with Jim Hagedorn, chairman and CEO of Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG), a stock that was hammered down 16% in Tuesday's trading after the company delivered a mixed quarter with a 9c earnings beat on lighter-than-expected revenue. Scotts currently yields 2.55%. Hagedorn said the company is meeting all of its internal expectations and is growing sales and taking share, but it simply couldn't meet the inflated expectations that the analysts had cooked up. Cramer remained bullish on Scotts after what was undoubtedly a strong quarter that was totally misunderstood by Wall Street. Then, Cramer once again spoke with Mark Papa, chairman and CEO of EOG Resources (EOG), an oil shale driller that posted a 3c earnings beat on a 47% yoy rise in revenue and a 49% increase in oil production. Papa explained that unlike other oil drillers, EOG is growing organically "through the drill bit" and is offering investors a higher rate of return by doing so. Cramer continued his support of EOG Resources. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer said when it comes to secure stocks to own in 2012, both AT&T and Verizon offer growth, expanding gross margins and most importantly, no exposure to the chaos in Europe.

10:58 EDTAGNAllergan rises after analyst sees compelling risk/reward, upgrades stock
Shares of drug maker Allergan (AGN) are rising after research firm Leerink Swann upgraded the stock in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: After Allergan's stock fell recently, the shares' risk/reward ratio has become "increasingly positive" and is now compelling, Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez wrote. Allergan's business has shown little if any weakness as a result of Valeant's (VRX) takeover bid for the company and Allergan's planned restructuring is overdue, the analyst contended. The weakness in Allergan's shares has been caused mainly by technical and arbitrage issues, according to Fernandez, who forecasts that the company can generate EPS of over $8.20 next year. Meanwhile, Valeant's bid will prevent Allergan's stock from dropping too far as long as it is on the table, Fernandez believes. Allergan has a number of other upcoming potential positive catalysts, including a potential $5B-$10B share repurchase initiative and data due to be released on August 12 on DARPin, the company's drug for wet age-related macular degeneration. A potential compelling acquisition by Allergan could also boost the stock, the analyst wrote. He upgraded the stock to Outperform from Market Perform and placed a $184 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Allergan rose $3.98, or 2.6%, to $155.67.
