22:28 EDTBBBY, COP, GLD, SLV, BIDU, SINA, ECA, LINE, TM, AAPL, MSFT, INTC, CCI, AMT, VZ, T, SBAC, XOMJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer said, when investors are ready to sell at the drop of a hat; that's a clear sign you're in a bull market. He said that Europe no longer has a strangle hold over U.S. markets and if the Fed isn't willing to help out the markets, then the U.S. economy must be even better than we expected. Cramer said there are still many positives in the markets, including a resurgence in real estate and strong retail sales, as evidenced by Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY). All of these facts point to Wednesday's sell-off being just a pause, said Cramer, and not a top in the markets. Oil prices are still high, noted Cramer, but this time it's due to real global demand and not rampant speculation. Gold stocks are in decline, but that's only because they can't find enough gold to take advantage of record-high prices, he said. Investors looking for a way to play on the wireless data explosion should look no further than SBA Communications (SBAC), Cramer told viewers. With over 300 million wireless subscribers in the U.S. and new data-hungry devices like the iPad on the way, Cramer said the tower companies are among the least risky ways to play the wireless data revolution. With the need for more wireless data growing by the day, Cramer said it's no wonder that wireless carriers like AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) are beginning to invest in infrastructure after a multi-year hiatus. So why SBA over rivals American Tower (AMT) and Crown Castle (CCI)? Cramer said that both SBA and American Tower are superior to Crown Castle, but among the two, he likes SBA more because of its superior portfolio of towers and its growth potential. Cramer said the economics at SBA are superb. SBA recently closed a secondary offering of stock, noted Cramer, which is giving investors a rare opportunity to buy shares at a discount to where they would normally trade. He told viewers to use this weakness to buy in. OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer outlined the fundamental reasons why he's bullish on both Intel (INTC) and Microsoft (MSFT). He said while these tech titans were the heart and soul of the PC revolution of the '80s and '90s, new product cycles are breathing new life into these all but forgotten companies. Cramer said of course he likes Apple (AAPL) more than either of these two names, but with Intel and Microsoft paying a 3% and 2.5% dividend, respectively, "how can investors go wrong?" LIGHTNING ROUND: Toyota Motor (TM) the auto companies have had a big move - Cramer is a seller. Cramer likes Linn Energy (LINE), but is not about to dump Encana (ECA) here. He is not a believer in the Chinese market so he is only recommending Baidu.com (BIDU), not Sina Corp (SINA). Cramer is ringing the register on silver and iShares Silver Trust (SLV). He likes the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD). ConocoPhillips (COP) is splitting itself up -- he likes that better than Exxon Mobil (XOM). He would trim positions in XOM. Reference Link
