23:38 EDTLMT, CSCO, HD, PETM, JCP, AMGN, HPYJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Cramer said it's downright infuriating, just when the housing market was beginning to recover, autos were getting stronger, retail sales were growing and banks looked like they were finally finding their footing, Congress has been able to undo it all and send our markets sharply lower. We're now facing the first congressionally mandated bear market we've ever seen, said Cramer, all because 536 people couldn't agree. For the year, U.S. stocks are now up just half of their counterparts in Europe, and Europe is in a recession. Cramer came up with three indicators to help investors figure out whether the effects of the fiscal cliff are baked into the markets and whether its time to begin buying back in. First: "Washington on TV" indicator. Anytime the president or member of Congress gets on the air, expect the markets to go lower. Second: Lockheed Martin (LMT), the defense contractor with a 5% dividend yield. If the U.S. falls over the fiscal cliff, Lockheed will get hurt by both defense spending cuts and a rise in dividend taxes, Cramer noted, making this stock uniquely positioned to feel the blow. Third: Investors can use Cisco (CSCO), Home Depot (HD) and Petsmart (PETM) as gauges for Washington's damage. Cramer said all three of these companies posted stellar earnings, so if they can't hold onto their gains, no one can. SELL BLOCK: Cramer reminded viewers some stocks go down because they deserve to, and that's certainly the case with J.C. Penney (JCP). The company remains a value trap and is showing no signs of improving. Penney has had three disappointing quarters in a row, Cramer noted, and sales still continue to decline, dramatically so, and the company's balance sheet is weakening. Then, continuing with his "Upside Surprise Party" series of stocks to buy as the markets continue to fall on fiscal cliff worries, Cramer recommended drug maker Amgen (AMGN). The company has a huge pipeline of new drugs on the way and a 1.7% yield. Trading at just 12x earnings with a 10.5% long-term growth rate, Cramer said he's never seen Amgen trade as low as it is right now. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer sat down with Robert Carr, chairman and CEO of Heartland Payment Systems (HPY), our nation's fifth-largest payment processor. Heartland's most recent quarterly results included a 5c earnings beat on better-than-expected revenue with upside guidance. Cramer continued his recommendation and said Heartland Payment Systems is a great story. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer offered his quick "Top 5" reasons why they shouldn't be sellers in Friday's market. First: stocks are already very oversold -- there will be a better time to sell later. Second: while many stocks will be impacted by the fiscal cliff, others, like international names, will not, which is why it's prudent to buy, not sell, into weakness. Third: everything gets baked into stock prices eventually, and stocks often bottom before big events occur, not after. Fourth: the higher taxes and spending cuts of the fiscal cliff won't be the end of the world for certain sectors, like health care and those that offer consumers a bargain. And, Fifth: companies with big dividends will likely be able to raise those dividends to cover, at least partially, any higher tax rates from the fiscal cliff. Reference Link
