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

13:28 EDTAAPLBlackBerry hits 52-week high after unveiling partnerships
Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) hit a new 52-week high after the company announced three new partnership deals. The company is slated to hold its analyst day today, starting at 3:30 PM ET. WHAT'S NEW: BlackBerry announced that it would partner with Samsung to provide a security solution for the South Korean company's mobile devices that utilize Google's (GOOG) Android operating system. Under the deal, BlackBerry’s BES12, an Enterprise Mobility Management system, or EMM that was launched today, will be integrated with some of Samgung's Galaxy smartphones and tablets. BES 12 "securely manages devices from all of the major enterprise mobile platforms" and "will help organizations securely connect employees with each other and with the corporate information and machines” they need, BlackBerry stated. Also today, Blackberry announced that it would connect its EMM solutions to Salesforce's (CRM) top customer relationship management platform. "This agreement will allow Salesforce and BlackBerry joint customers to run their businesses from their phone while complying with specific industry regulations," said Vivek Kundra, a Salesforce Executive Vice President in a statement. "BlackBerry has an excellent reputation in security and networks, and when matched with the Salesforce Customer Success Platform, public sector organizations can use their mobile devices to connect with customers in a whole new way," added Kundra. Finally, BlackBerry announced that Brightstar would distribute BES 12. BlackBerry described Brightstar as "the world's largest wireless distribution company and leader in services for the wireless industry." WHAT'S NOTABLE: BES12 is expected to compete with Apple (AAPL) in the enterprise space. Apple earlier this year announced that it was partnering with IBM (IBM) in an effort to sell more products to corporate customers. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, BlackBerry jumped 6% to $11.95. Earlier today the shares set a new 52-week high of $12.05.
