23:33 EDTJAH, F, FRO, JDSU, RIO, ALLT, NAT, CMI, VHC, ET, VALE, WY, AIG, BATSJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer argued investors who are overly cautious about the markets aren't bringing their "A" game. He said the market's current rally is broad-based, and it's lasted for weeks. And that, he said, make it prudent not to be scared and to embrace the move. But Cramer finds himself alone in championing the stock market. The president isn't promoting stocks because of high unemployment, despite the fact that stocks are up 58% since he first took office. The Federal Reserve is also cautious and continues to be downbeat on the U.S. economy. Even the brokerages are laying low, noted Cramer. Despite countless calls that earnings estimates are too low for numerous companies, analysts are afraid to upgrade their estimates or to promote stocks in any big way. Corporate executives are fearful of setting expectations too high, even though the Q1 of 2012 is proving to be a blockbuster for many companies, Cramer says. Cramer said he stands alone, telling investors that this rally is for real and now is not the time to step away. Instead he said it's the time to buy into some great companies that are still trading far too cheaply. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer once again sat down with Martin Franklin, the executive chairman of Jarden (JAH), the largest sporting goods company on earth, as well as being a major player in small appliances. Jarden recently conducted a massive stock repurchase program, reducing its overall share count by 13%. Franklin said he's comfortable with Wall Street forecasts for Jarden. Franklin reiterated that diversification is a major strength for Jarden. He was equally bullish on Jarden's technical apparel segment, another aspect of the company that's growing in the double-digits, but still has lots of room to grow. Cramer said that normally he's not a fan of buybacks, but in the case of Jarden, where share prices are rocketing higher, he's willing to make an exception. Cramer also sat down with Bob Benmosche, president and CEO of American International Group (AIG), a company that turned a corner in August, 2009 and has now become one of the greatest turnaround stories, thanks to excellent management, Cramer contends. He told investors to stick with the company. MAD TWEETS: Cramer said that Weyerhaeuser (WY) is still a play on Japanese reconstruction. Cramer said Ford (F) is not a good investment with gas prices going higher and sales still slumping in Europe and Latin America. He said Ford is not the best way to play the 2012 bull market. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer said the BATS Global Markets (BATS) fiasco last week exemplifies how electronic trading is fundamentally flawed. He called BATS' claim that it "helps the little guy" totally bogus, noting that high-speed electronic trading actually sucks liquidity out of the markets instead of adding to it. Cramer added that the SEC has clearly lost regulatory control of the markets and is no longer enforcing its mandate of leveling the playing field for all investors.

The Federal Reserve's scrutiny of AIG (AIG) and GE Capital (GE) since those non-banks were designated as systemic risks shows they are being regarded in the same manner as large banks, according Financial Times, citing people familiar with the process. Insurer Prudential Financial (PRU) was deemed a systemic risk last September and rival MetLife (MET) is waiting to see if it will be designated this year, the report noted. Reference Link

10:07 EDTVHCVirnetX says court denies Apple motion in patent suit
VirnetX (VHC) announced that on August 8 the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, issued its patent claim construction, or "Markman" Order and ruled on a VirnetX motion in the ongoing patent infringement action between VirnetX and Apple (AAPL). Both parties had presented arguments on the disputed terms along with various other motions at a Markman hearing on May 20. In the Markman order, the court denied Apple's Motion for Summary Judgment of Indefiniteness, in which Apple alleged that some of the disputed claims terms in the patents asserted by VirnetX were invalid for indefiniteness. In a separate order, the court granted in part and denied in part VirnetX's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment on Apple's Invalidity Counterclaims. The court's order precludes Apple from asserting invalidity as a defense against infringement of the claims that were tried before a jury in VirnetX's prior litigation against Apple. Apple is not precluded from asserting invalidity as a defense against infringement of the claims that were not tried before a jury in the Apple I case. "We are extremely pleased with the court's rulings and we remain confident in the merits of our complaint against Apple," said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. "We believe the court's Markman Order and motion ruling represents another significant step towards the successful resolution of this litigation."
