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. 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

11:47 EDTSODAAnalysts mixed on Keurig after cold drink maker unveiling
Several research firms disagreed on the outlook for Keurig Green Mountain's (GMCR) upcoming at-home cold beverage maker, Keurig KOLD, after the company unveiled the product yesterday. SunTrust and Bernstein expressed major reservations about the product, while Susquehanna was more upbeat about the device and said the shares had reached a good entry point for investors. WHAT'S NEW: Keurig's management seemed to take a cautious view on the outlook for the device's sales, Bernstein analyst Ali Dibadj wrote. Additionally, the device and its pods "seemed a bit pricey" and large. However, the analyst, noting that the company hopes to eventually cut the price of the product to $200 from $300, called a potential $200 price point "more palatable for consumers." Furthermore, Dibadj says he has a hard time "fully understanding" the company's assertion that the device solves several problems. SunTrust analyst William Chappell, Jr. was impressed by the device's technology, but said he was concerned by the product's initial price and the investments that Keurig will have to make to launch the product. He kept a Neutral rating on the shares. BULLISH OUTLOOK:, Susquehanna analyst Pablo Zuanic said that most of the information on Kold was disappointing. The analyst said that he was disappointed by the device's high price and the fact that it will take a minute to make each drink. However, noting that SodaStream's (SODA) cold drink makers have penetrated 1.5% of U.S. households, the analyst says it is "not out of the question" that Kold can reach 3% household penetration in the U.S. by fiscal 2017-2018. If Kold does attain that milestone, Green Mountain's profits would double, the analyst stated. Zuanic remained upbeat on the company's long-term outlook and says that the stock is not currently reflecting any value for Kold. He believes that the stock has reached a good entry point, and kept a $140 price target and Positive rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Coca-Cola (KO) owns a 16% stake in Keurig Green Mountain. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Keurig Green Mountain dropped 8.3% to $94.50, while SodaStream gained 2.5% to $22.25.

08:05 EDTSODABernstein has reservations about Keurig Green Mountain's Keurig Kold
After attending Keurig Green Mountain's (GMCR) Keurig Kold launch event, Bernstein says that it has a hard time understanding the device's value proposition and sensed some caution from the company about how quickly the device's penetration will rise and be accretive to earnings. The firm says the device and pods seem a bit expensive, while the brewer and pods are large. The firm believes that the taste of the product's Diet Coke drink was off, although regular Coke and others were good. Coca-Cola (KO) owns a 16% stake in Keurig Green Mountain.
