04:20 EDTWWE, NILE, EOG, CELG, CMG, APU, ATML, SMG, AGN, SBUX, ZNGA, INTC, LULU, ROST, AAPLJim 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.

After JMP Securities yesterday downgraded Intel (INTC) based partly on information from a source who said that server component sales have been weak in 2015, RBC Capital says any weakness is probably due to a three month delay caused by a technical problem and is not demand driven. RBC Capital expects the technical problem to be resolved within three months but keeps a $40 price target and Sector Perform rating on Intel.

11:15 EDTINTCIntel slips after JMP cuts to sell, Canaccord says upgrade not yet warranted
Following Intel's (INTC) fourth quarter results last week, two research firms issued cautious notes on the stock today. JMP Securities downgraded the stock to Underperform, which is the firm's "Sell" equivalent rating, while Canaccord kept a Hold rating on the shares, though the latter firm said its outlook on the company's fundamentals is continuing to become more positive and raised its price target on the name. WHAT'S NEW: Intel's Q4 results were "mixed," but the company's fundamentals appear to have improved, Canaccord analyst Matt Ramsay wrote in a note to investors today. The company's data center group and Internet of Things group should generate sustained 15%+ and 20%+ growth, respectively, over the next several years, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Intel's PC client group should be able to cut costs further, Ramsay believes. The analyst said he had "intended to upgrade the stock" after the results, given his long-term upbeat view of the company, but was unable to do so. Ramsay explained that he changed his mind because he does not think the company's profits will increase at all this year, while the stock largely already reflects his expectations for solid profit growth in 2016. The analyst increased his price target on the shares to $40 from $36 but kept a Hold rating on the stock. More bearish was JMP Securities analyst Alex Gauna. Gauna downgraded the stock to Underperform from Market Perform and set a $30 price target on Intel. After speaking with a source who sells server components, the analyst reported that the source's business has been weak this month. Weak server component sales are likely to pull down Intel's stock, given its relatively high valuation, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Intel's gross margins have probably peaked, Gauna believes. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Intel fell 1.7% to $35.82.
