Jim Cramer said with U.S. hiring on the rise, along with commercial construction and the rebuilding of U.S. company inventories, the "USA trade" is one that will likely be with us for some time to come. With the Chinese economy still slowing, stocks like BHP Billiton (BHP), the Australian mining company that supplies China with tons of coal, saw its shares slump, taking mining equipment maker Joy Global (JOY) down with it. Steelmaker Nucor (NUE) also saw its shares shed $1 a share. Likewise with engine maker Cummins (CMI), which also has Chinese exposure. Meanwhile in the U.S., Cramer said regional banks like SunTrust Banks (STI) or banking giant Wells Fargo (WFC), saw no such decline. American restaurants like Panera Bread (PNRA) and Darden Restaurants (DRI) saw shares rally nicely Tuesday. Cramer was also still bullish on the home improvement stocks, mainly Home Depot (HD) and rival Lowes (LOW), as well as American retailers like Ross Stores (ROST) and Amazon.com (AMZN). OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer and colleague Mark Sebastian over the chart of CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), more commonly known as "the VIX." The VIX is often seen as a fear index for the markets, denoting investor confidence. The VIX currently trades at $15.58, well below its historic average of $20. According to Sebastian's assessment, the VIX moves in stages averaging around five years. Our latest period of volatility, from 2008 through 2012, is nearing a close, and we should once again enjoy several years of stability and growth. Cramer concurred. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with Joseph Carrabba, chairman, president and CEO of Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), a mining company that recently raised its dividend to 3.5% and left its growth outlook unchanged, despite bearish comments from its rivals regarding slowing growth in China. Cramer said that investors looking for yield and growth, as well as exposure to both China and the red-hot U.S. market, need to consider Cliffs Natural Resources. Cramer also sat down with Don Sinclair, president and CEO of Western Gas Partners (WES), an oil and natural gas master limited partnership that offers both a 14% growth rate and a 4% dividend yield. Cramer said he likes what Sinclair has done for shareholders and continued to recommend the stock. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer said investors are already up 34% in Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF) based on his recommendation, but with speculation running rampant that the company could have a colossal flop on their hands, this stock may not be for the squeamish investor. Cramer said he would continue to own Lion's Gate for the long-term and not worry about how big or small opening weekend for "The Hunger Games" turns out to be.
