Jim Cramer said its still not too late to take some money off the table. He told investors to forget about how the major averages are fairing and instead focus on individual stocks, some of which are doing well while others are imploding. Cramer said that in the markets of old, stocks tended to trade together, but not in today's market. In today's market, companies like Cypress Semiconductor (CY) announced seriously disappointing earnings, while rivals like Qualcomm (QCOM) and Broadcom (BRCM) were both up sharply. In the telco equipment space, shares of Ciena (CIEN) rallied while rival Cisco (CSCO) saw its shares slide south. The oil service sector was also mixed, with Ensco (ESV) heading higher and Baker Hughes (BHI) heading lower. Cramer said this pattern is repeating in sector after sector. The price of oil was up, but oil stocks were down. Gold was up, gold stocks were down. Apparel maker Lululemon Athletica (LULU) rallied, while Deckers Outdoor (DECK), a sector favorite, was down sharply. Cramer said with all this volatility in everything from the rails to the drugs to the industrials, investors need to lighten up on their winners and swap out of their losers. He said all of the major risk factors, including Greece, Iran and China, are still in play. Next, on the heels of the company’s big iPad announcement, Cramer said "It's getting difficult to trade Apple." He said the better strategy, "invest in Apple." Cramer said that many pundits are weighing in on whether Apple (AAPL) is worth owning after the stocks' big run ahead of the announcement. Traditionally, Apple shares have run up ahead of new products, only to sell of afterwards. But Cramer said he's done trying to trade Apple, he'd just rather own it for the long haul. Cramer said the new iPad is making major in-roads in the corporate world as Research In Motion's (RIMM) Blackberry is riding off into the sunset. Cramer said no matter how you look at it, shares of Apple are still cheap and are still worth owning for the long haul.Looking for an Internet stock? Cramer said "forget about the dot-com IPOs" like Pandora (P), Yelp (YELP) and Groupon (GRPN). What investors really need is a seasoned dot-com that's been around the block a few times. Cramer said that IAC Interactive (IACI) is the polar opposite of a stock like Yelp. This company has no hype, but a ton of earnings and a share huge buyback program. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer sat down with Mike Stice, president and CEO of Chesapeake Midstream Partners (CHKM), a natural gas gathering master limited partnership with a 12% growth rate and a juicy 5.4% dividend yield. Stice started off by saying that he's encouraged by the Obama administration's recent support for natural gas vehicles. He was also equally excited about a recently announced partnership between Chesapeake Energy (CHK) and General Electric (GE) to offer home fueling stations for natural cars. Cramer said that Chesapeake Midstream is one of only a few companies that offer growth plus yield. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) EOG; GLD; HEI; IBKR. (Bearish) AVP; HES; ABX; DELL; DE; GLW.

06:07 EDTBHIHalliburton upgraded to Buy from Accumulate at KLR Group
KLR Group analyst Darren Gacicia upgraded Halliburton (HAL) to Buy saying the risk/reward is favorable at current share levels. North America should be the first region to increase oil production activity in a recovery, and Halliburton has high exposure, Gacicia tells investors in a research note. Further, investor concerns related to the Baker Hughes (BHI) merger may present a positive catalyst for the shares whether the merger is completed or terminated, the analyst contends. He believes both companies remain motivated to complete the deal. Gacicia keeps a $44 price target for Halliburton shares. The oil services company closed yesterday up 12c to $29.06.
