05:01 EDTHD, SAND, O, QCOM, GE, CELG, DVAX, BRCM, BA, CLNE, DKS, SODA, EXEL, CSCO, WPRT, GILDJim 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. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) QCOM; CSCO; BRCM; O; EXEL; DVAX. (Bearish) SAND; SODA.is now set to ride the waves of a recovering housing market and the rebuilding effort after Hurricane Sandy. Cramer said Dick's 5% pop in same store sales was remarkable during a time when many are not necessarily in the market for expensive sneakers or outdoor sporting gear. Reference Link
