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.

Arista Networks (ANET) shares have been strong since the company's IPO and its growth prospects make a "good case for a decent premium," but the current valuation gap compared to its peers "seems wide", according to The Wall Street Journal's "Heard on the Street" column, which noted that Cisco (CSCO) has the resources and incentive to push back against Arista's attempts to take share in network switches.

13:04 EDTCSCOCisco technical comments before earnings
In the last three months the stock has outperformed the broader averages, rising by nearly 9%. The trend in that time has been up, but with the bulk of gains having been realized near the start of the period. There was one larger bump up in price that was corrected, but that high at $26.08 now becomes an objective for bulls to take out on the upside on good news. The reason for this is that the $26 to $26.50 area forms a big double top when viewed on a 2-year daily chart. The bulls need to break this area of resistance for the stock to become long-term bullish. If they can manage that, next resistance above $26.50 would be at $27.74. If the news disappoints, that potentially bearish double top pattern could asset itself. The $23.50 area on a break lower would be the first test. The middle of the "M" pattern would be at $21.27.
