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

12:24 EDTVZOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were modestly higher at midday. The averages opened mixed, but very close to the flat line, and have continued to drift slowly higher from that point. There is little to stand in the way of the marketís drift, as the economic calendar is quiet, the earnings season is winding down, and the most closely watched geopolitical situations are currently status quo. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., little of note was on the economic calendar. The Federal Reserve's newly introduced Labor Market Conditions Index was flat at 4 in October. The Fed started updating estimates of the LMCI every month beginning with last month. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) advanced about 1% after xxx President Barack Obama publicly urged the Federal Communications Commission to implement the "strongest possible rules" to protect net neutrality. In response, Verizon (VZ) said it supports the open Internet and continues to believe that the "light-touch regulatory approach in place for the past two decades has been central to the Internetís success," adding that it believes the reclassification Obama called for would "apply 1930s-era utility regulation to the Internet" and be a "radical reversal of course" that would threaten great harm to an open Internet, competition and innovation." A number of Internet Service Providers, including Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC), Charter (CHTR) and Cablevision (CVC), moved lower after Obama weighed in on the hot-button issue. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Achillion Pharmaceuticals (ACHN), which rose 22% after the company presented data from the ongoing Phase 2 study of its Hepatitis C virus treatment at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, or AASLD. Also higher was Dean Foods (DF), which rose more than 13% after the dairy products distributorís third quarter results, as well as its fourth quarter and full year profit outlook, surpassed analystsí consensus estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Rayonier (RYN), which dropped 13% after management determined that there was a material weakness in the company's internal controls, restated certain previously made financial statements, and cut its dividend reflecting expectations of reduced cash available for distribution due to lower expected annual harvest levels. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 18.55, or 0.11%, to 17,592.48, the Nasdaq was up 10.77, or 0.23%, to 4,643.30, and the S&P 500 was up 4.01, or 0.2%, to 2,035.93.
