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).
