23:12 EDTWM, CMG, DNDN, AAPL, CVX, BRKBJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer told viewers of his "Mad Money" show Tuesday evening, "Get used to stocks trading on growth -- growth generates earnings and earnings makes stocks trade higher." He said, with strong fundamentals and a tailwind from the Chinese economy, the U.S. is strong enough to take on just about anything Europe can dish out. Add to that India, which surprised the world by cutting interest rates Tuesday. "it's no wonder U.S. stocks were off to the races once again," Cramer said. Cramer said whether it's retail, technology or aerospace, things are simply better in America and the markets are just reflecting that fact. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer once again sat down with Charif Souki, chairman and CEO of Cheniere Energy (LNG), who just received government approval to begin construction of a natural gas export terminal in Louisiana. Shares on Cheniere are up 115% since Cramer first spoke with Souki in June 2010. Cramer continued his support for Cheniere. Then, Cramer went on-location with David Steiner, president and CEO of Waste Management (WM), at one of the company's many natural gas filling stations. Waste Management is currently a leader in using natural gas for its trash trucks and almost 90% of its purchases this year will be natural gas vehicles. Cramer reiterated his recommendation. OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer went and colleague Mark Sebastian went head to head to determine whether the recent spate of market volatility is anything to worry about. Sebastian noted that the period of volatility ended months ago and the market's current spike in volatility is not a sign of another rocky period. Cramer said this is a sign that things are looking pretty good for the markets and investors shouldn't let the bears ruin their confidence. "We are not headed to another period of volatility," he concluded.Cramer took a few moments to comment on the news that billionaire investor Warren Buffett has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He said that while some investors worry about the fate of Berkshire Hathaway (BRKB), he is not among them. Cramer likened Buffett to Steve Jobs at Apple (AAPL), saying that Buffett has given much thought to his legacy and has three terrific candidates in the wings if, or when, the time arises. As for the company itself, after struggling with exposure to housing, Cramer said that Berkshire is now in terrific shape. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) CMG; CVX. (Beaish) DNDN. 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.
