23:12 EDTBRKB, AAPL, CMG, CVX, DNDN, WMJim 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

08:42 EDTAAPLIcahn sees Apple launching UltraHD TV set in FY16
Carl Icahn stated in an open letter posted to his "Shareholder's Square Table" addressed to Apple CEO Tim Cook: "While Apple has not announced plans for a TV set and may never do so, we believe we have good enough reason to expect the introduction of an UltraHD TV set in FY 2016. We think television represents a large opportunity for Apple, one that reaches far beyond “the hobby” that Apple TV currently represents...As the home represents one compelling category for Apple, payments represents another...We estimate that, based upon Apple Pay’s rumored fee of 15 bps of all spend on credit and debit cards...and merchant deployment of NFC reaching 80%+ in 2017, Apple in the U.S. could generate revenues...of $2.5 billion in FY 2017 if it reaches 30% market share of all spend on U.S. credit and debit cards. The potential in the U.S. and internationally over a longer term is much larger."
