21:30 EDTBNNY, MDRX, SHLD, TWI, CSCO, GOOG, CERN, APC, MGA, AVP, RHT, IMAX, HAIN, ARLPJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer said in 2012 the U.S. markets are behind the wheel and it's Europe that's alone in the back seat. He said it was strong U.S. economic data Monday that set the tone for the markets. And with the U.S. economy taking center stage, that bodes well for U.S stocks, including retail, housing, technology, autos and restaurants, he concluded. Only the commodity related stocks, like mining and minerals, along with copper and metals, will hinge on news from China, said Cramer. IPOs: Cramer explained that sometimes, an IPO's high share price is actually warranted. He often highlights deals that are good investments only if investors can get in on the IPO shares themselves. Cramer always recommends selling those same shares immediately after they pop on their first day of trading. Such was the case with Annie's (BNNY), the makers of healthy, organic foods that came public last Wednesday. Cramer said he initially panned the IPO, giving his usual "take the money and run" advice. But after taking some time to analyze the company, he said that Annie's is one of only a few companies actually worth holding for the long run. Investors should think of the company as a younger sibling to Hain Celestial (HAIN). Hain trades at 25x earnings with a 13% growth rate, but Annie's is trading at just 23x earnings, despite it's likely to be growing around 22% if it follows last year's trends. Even at its current levels around $34 a share, Annie's is still inexpensive if it can maintain its growth targets. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer sat down with Richard Gelfond, CEO of big-screen theater purveyor IMAX (IMAX), a company Cramer said may finally be poised for substantial growth. Gelfond said that IMAX has been growing 30% a year for the past three years and now has a backlog of 250 theaters. He called the company's recent growth "meteoric," noting that IMAX only has 225 theaters in China, a country with enormous growth potential. Cramer is a fan of IMAX, especially given the company's growth prospects and the fact that its earnings are no longer dependent on Hollywood's next blockbuster release. Cramer also spoke with Jim Whitehurst, president and CEO of Red Hat (RHT), the software maker that saw its shares jump 20% when it reported a surprise 31% increase in its billings. Shares of Red Hat are now up 47% so far this year and 56% since Cramer last spoke with Whitehurst last October. Whitehurst explained the 20% jump in Red Hat shares by saying that Wall Street analysts continue to underestimate the company's business model. Cramer said while shares of Red Hat are red hot at the moment, someday soon there will be a big down day in the markets, which will create the perfect time to buy in. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer opined on Avon Products' (AVP) decision to decline a takeover bid that valued the company 20% higher than where it was currently trading. Cramer said Avon was right to decline the deal, as it merely valued the company to where it should have been had the Avon's board of directors given former-CEO Andrea Jung the boot years ago instead of only in last December. He said that under new management, Avon should be able to reclaim a lot of its lost value and may someday be strong enough to buy its proposed suitor, instead of the other way around.
