05:01 EDTSAND, O, QCOM, GE, CELG, DVAX, BRCM, BA, CLNE, DKS, SODA, EXEL, CSCO, WPRT, GILD, HDJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer said there are plenty of reasons to still own stocks. As many are still hopeful for a deal that can avert the fiscal cliff. So why haven't stock prices cratered in the meantime? Cramer said there are many reasons. Many investors simply aren't aware of drastic consequences if a deal is not reached, while others have their investments in IRAs and other tax-favored accounts that may not be affected by the fiscal cliff. Those investors are buyers into weakness and help provide a cushion for the markets, Cramer said. Then there are the earnings, strong earnings, from the likes of Home Depot (HD) and Dicks Sporting Goods (DKS), which prove that Americans are still spending, especially on their homes. Other big moves, including from biotechs like Celgene (CELG) and Gilead Sciences (GILD), are hard to pass up, Cramer continued. In the end, being out of the market when a deal is reached would be a huge mistake, Cramer said, as even a bad outcome is better than no outcome at all. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer once again sat down with Andrew Littlefair, CEO of Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE), a stock that's been cut in half since its highs earlier this year, but also one that received a boost Tuesday on the news that the company is building two liquefied natural gas plants with General Electric (GE). Littlefair said ultimately, Clean Energy plans 10 such plants, allowing the company to provide fuel along the major interstate corridors across our country. When Westport Innovations (WPRT) introduces the next-generation natural gas engines in February, Littlefair added, that will likely be the catalyst to convince many more truckers to begin using natural gas and start saving up to $1.50 per gallon in fuel costs. Cramer said Littlefair made him feel more upbeat on the prospects for natural gas in America. OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer and colleague Bob Lang went over the chart of Boeing (BA), one that is squarely in the crosshairs of the looming fiscal cliff. With a floor at $69 a share, Lang said investors have decent downside protection at these levels. More importantly, Boeing's recent rally now puts the stock above its 10-day, 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which makes it an "up stock" in the eyes of technicians who follow it. Cramer said there's a tremendous buying cycle at hand in the aerospace world, as more and more airlines need to add more fuel efficient planes to their fleets. This cycle lasts for years, he said, which is why Boeing is one stock that can fly higher than even the fiscal cliff. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer took a moment out to praise the management at Home Depot and Dicks Sporting Goods for their remarkable earnings.Home Depot.

17:00 EDTQCOMMarket ends week higher after upbeat U.S. data, hint at ECB easing
Stocks finished the week higher and near record levels as several better than expected U.S. economic data points boosted shares. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims, a manufacturing index for October, and factory orders for September all beat expectations. The nonfarm payrolls report showed fewer than expected jobs were added last month, but the figures from the prior two months were upwardly revised... European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said the ECB Governing Council was unanimous in its commitment to use unconventional instruments if needed to boost the euro zone's economy. Meanwhile, some possible "green shoots" emerged in Europe, as France reported that its manufacturing output had risen 0.6% in September versus August. Furthermore, Western European car sales surged 5.5% in October versus the same period a year earlier, Reuters reported, citing industry data. There was, however, some negative news out of Europe, as Germany said that its factory orders had increased just 0.8% in September, following a revised 4.2% slump in August. Economists had expected the orders to jump 2.3%. Also, the European Commission cut its 2014 GDP growth forecast for the EU to 0.8% from its previous forecast for a 1.2% gain. COMPANY NEWS: Tesla (TSLA), Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), International Paper (IP), Whole Foods (WFM), and upscale accessories and apparel maker Kate Spade (KATE) were among the stocks that climbed following their results. Conversely, multi-level marketer Herbalife (HLF), Priceline (PCLN), Michael Kors (KORS), IT security company FireEye (FEYE), and chip maker Qualcomm (QCOM) fell following their quarterly reports... In takeover news, clinical laboratory company LabCorp (LH) said it would buy drug development services company Covance (CVD) for $105.12 per share in cash and stock, and marketing services company Sapient (SAPE) agreed to be acquired by French advertising giant Publicis (PUBGY) for $25.00 per share in cash... Shares of a number of hospital owners, including Tenet Healthcare (THC), Community Health (CYH), and HCA Holdings (HCA) fell after Republicans won control of the U.S. Senate. Republicans have promised to seek to repeal most parts of the Affordable Care Act, which benefits hospitals by reducing the number of uninsured patients that use their services. Additionally, the Supreme Court today agreed to hear a lawsuit challenging the federal government's right to subsidize the health insurance premiums of Americans who buy health insurance through the federal exchange set up by the Act... The Justice Department sued to block the acquisition of Screenvision, which provides solutions related to cinema advertising, by movie theater ad network National CineMedia (NCMI), sending its stock lower. Movie theater operator Carmike Cinemas (CKEC), which owns a 19% “profits interest" in the holding company for Screenvision, also slid following the news. INDEXES: For the week, the Dow is up 1.04% to 17,573.93, the Nasdaq is up 0.03% to 4,632.53, and the S&P 500 is up 0.66% to 2,031.92.
