Jim Cramer said the weakness in many of the market's top stocks was nothing more than hedge funds and money managers locking in their gains after the best quarter we've seen in 14 years. He said the only real movers were stocks betting on interest rate cuts in China. Those stocks, like Joy Global (JOY), Caterpillar (CAT) and Cummins (CMI), all opened lower only to turn higher by the end of the day. Everything else, however, and especially the market leaders like Apple (AAPL), finished sharply lower by the end of Tuesday's trading. Cramer said fortunately the markets are strong enough to absorb all of this big-money selling. But investors can expect to see even more market gyrations tomorrow as Q1 draws to a close. Next, Cramer said if "big data" is the future of technology, then investors better sit up and pay attention. Red Hat (RHT) proved just how large big data is becoming after the company blew away the numbers, sending shares up $10 each, or 19.5%, in a single session. But while Red Hat may be hot, Cramer said that EMC (EMC) remains his favorite. Despite its acquisition shopping spree, EMC shares still trade at just 14.7x earnings, regardless of its 15% growth rate. Cramer also gave the nod to a handful of others in the big data market, including IBM (IBM), Teradata (TDC), Salesforce.com (CRM) and Tibco (TIBX). But no matter which stocks investors choose, Cramer said that big data will be one of the big themes throughout 2012 and beyond. MAD TWEETS: When asked whether now's the time to buy into the cruise lines, mainly Royal Carribean (RCL) and Carnival Cruises (CCL), Cramer gave a resounding "Yes!" Cruise stocks have been under immense pressure since Carnival's ship ran aground off the coast of Italy last year. But now the worst may be over, said Cramer, as he released the group from his "Sell Block" by saying that Carnival may now be worth buying. Carnival, whose shares are down 2% for the year, are attractive given its 3.1% dividend and its opportunities for a comeback. He would be a buyer at current levels and would get more aggressive if shares sink lower. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with Marty Mucci, president and CEO of Paychex (PAYX), a payroll processor with a 4% yield. Paychex delivered an inline quarter and reaffirmed 2012 guidance. Mucci said that he felt good about the quarter and where Paychex is headed, but remained conservative on the company's conference call. Cramer remained bullish on Paychex, especially given its 4% yield and prospects for growth as the economy improves. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) GWRE; NLY; YUM; AGN; TWX.
