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.

18:37 EDTWYWeyerhaeuser announces plans to move headquarters to Seattle
Weyerhaeuser announced it will move its headquarters from Federal Way, Wash., to 200 Occidental Avenue in Seattle, Wash. The move will occur in mid to late 2016 when construction of the new building is complete. "There are two main drivers for this decision, which we made after thorough analysis of various options for the location of our headquarters," said Doyle R. Simons, president and CEO. "First, our 430-acre campus in Federal Way is costly and too large for our needs. Second, moving our headquarters to Seattle will give us access to a larger talent pool to meet future recruiting needs, not just in this region, but from across the country." The company will divest the land and buildings it owns in Federal Way, Wash.
