Wednesday was Jim Cramer's anniversary of his "Mad Money" TV show. He said it's time to come off the sidelines, sell those bank CDs earning 0.4% interest and invest in great American companies. Cramer said today's markets are being driven by pure growth, U.S. growth. He said everything from health care to retail to technology, even the homebuilders, are just beginning to show sustainable recoveries. Stocks like JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and IBM (IBM), are both leading the charge. Then there's Apple (AAPL) Cramer said while some investors can't fathom Apple's historic rise, he remembers a time when Coca-Cola (KO) and Pfizer (PFE) were the most valued companies on Wall Street. Apple is so much more than just a technology company, he said, adding it's a communications, education and entertainment company as well, all of which makes it worth its valuation. Cramers said the markets can most certainly take out its recent highs and march into bull-market mode, with a pickup in commercial construction and improved job growth looming just around the corner. Cramer recapped his "Magnificent Seven" speculative stocks to show viewers just how lucrative this under-rated method of investing can be. He said that every investor should have one spot in their portfolio dedicated to a speculative stock that adds excitement to their holdings. Cramer's magnificent seven stocks included Pharmacyclics (PCYC), a stock up 393% over the past 12 months, Medivation (MDVN), a biotech up 320%, Idenix Pharmaceuticals (IDIX), up 277%, and Vivus (VVUS), up 224%. Rounding out the seven were Arctic Cat (ACAT), which has risen 204% in 12 months, Conn's (CONN), up 211% and HealthStream (HSTM), which is up 192%. Next, Cramer also highlighted the seven best stocks that he's recommended since "Mad Money" first aired back in 2005, a list that exemplifies what "staying in the game" is all about. His top seven recommendations included Monster Beverage (MNST), which has risen 1,600% over the past seven years, the biotech company Regeneron (REGN), up 1,700% over seven years and Medivation (MDVN), the only company to make both of Cramer's lists, up 1,800%. The list also included Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR), a stock that despite huge losses recently, is still up 2,700% over seven years, SXC Health Solutions (SXCI) up 2800%, travel site Priceline.com (PCLN), up 2,850% and finally, Questcor Pharmceuticals (QCOR), which has rallied an astounding 7,066% over seven years. Cramer said when companies are riding long-term trends, their successes can turn into huge gains for shareholders. Next, Cramer responded to a New York Times op-ed piece chastising Goldman Sachs (GS), saying that the company often put its own interests ahead of those of its clients. Cramer said he didn't see any of this type of behavior when he worked for Goldman years ago. He said while he's sure that many of Goldman's employees are still committed to doing right by clients, perhaps this article can serve as a wake-up call for the firm to do even better for its clients, even if that means being less profitable in the short term. MAD TWEETS: Cramer said that Microsoft (MSFT) was a good stock, Yahoo (YHOO) was a bad one and Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) was a speculative one. Deckers Outdoor (DECK), said the warm winter hit this cold-weather shoemaker hard. Cramer was bullish on Starbucks (SBUX). Restructuring is working at Lowes (LOW) but he still prefers Home Depot (HD), and with gold stocks still suffering, he still likes the SPDR Gold Shares (GLD). Finally when asked about ZipCar (ZIP), Cramer said if investors want to invest in a recent IPO, he'd go with mobile game maker Zynga (ZNGA).

06:40 EDTBAC, GS, JPMAgencies finalize liquidity rule for large banks
The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency finalized a rule yesterday that they said would strengthen the liquidity positions of large financial institutions. The rule will for the first time create a standardized minimum liquidity requirement for large and internationally active banking organizations., according to the agencies. Each institution will be required to hold high quality, liquid assets, or HQLA, such as central bank reserves and government and corporate debt that can be converted easily and quickly into cash in an amount equal to or greater than its projected cash outflows minus its projected cash inflows during a 30-day stress period, the agencies explained. The ratio of the firm’s liquid assets to its projected net cash outflow is its “liquidity coverage ratio,” or LCR, they said. The LCR will apply to all banking organizations with $250B or more in total consolidated assets or $10B or more in on-balance sheet foreign exposure and to these banking organizations’ subsidiary depository institutions that have assets of $10B or more, the agencies reported. The rule also will apply a less stringent, modified LCR to bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies that do not meet these thresholds, but have $50B or more in total assets. Bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies with substantial insurance or commercial operations are not covered by the final rule. The final rule is largely identical to the proposed rule, with a few key adjustments in response to comments from the public, the agencies stated. Those adjustments include changes to the range of corporate debt and equity securities included in HQLA, a phasing-in of daily calculation requirements, a revised approach to address maturity mismatch during a 30-day period, and changes in the stress period, calculation frequency, and implementation timeline for the bank holding companies and savings and loan companies subject to the modified LCR. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).

05:24 EDTPCAR, CMIAugust Class 8 truck orders below expectations, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo notes that ACT Research reported August Class 5-8 truck orders were up 14% year-over-year but declined 6% from July. Class 8 net orders were 25,400, up 30% year-over-year and down 16% sequentially from July, below Wells' expectation of 27,000-30,000. The firm says Class 8 orders remained strong, however. Wells believes the modest Class 8 truck backlog decline may be a short-term neutral to negative for truck-related stocks, such as Cummins (CMI), Navistar (NAV) and PACCAR (PCAR).
