Jim Cramer said that all of last month's winners got pummeled Monday, while a whole new class of stocks became 'en vogue'. He said for weeks, hedge fund managers have been betting hundreds of billions on continued weakness in Europe. So today, when the U.S. dollar reversed course and took a turn for the better, many managers were caught on the wrong side of the trade. That explains the action in many weak dollar stocks like 3M (MMM), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Pfizer (PFE), said Cramer. These stocks, along with many of the banks, all saw their shares slide Monday. Then there are the Nasdaq darlings, Google (GOOG) and Apple (AAPL). Cramer said that while Google's slide was due to weak earnings and a questionable stock split, Apple's slide seems to be one in sympathy with the search engine giant. Cramer said there are many fund managers who would love to see shares of Apple lower, which explains many of the rumors swirling about telcos becoming unwilling to pay sky-high iPhone subsidies. He said the selling in Apple could also simply be investors taking profits to pay their taxes. But whatever the reasons for all of the selling in the markets, Cramer said the fact remains that high-quality growth stocks of all kinds are now on sale and remain a great place in which to invest. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer checked back in with Andrew Littlefair, president and CEO of Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE), a stock that's up 61% since Cramer last spoke with Littlefair on Nov. 14. Cramer said that Clean Energy Fuels remains a speculative stock, adding that investors should do their homework before buying in. Cramer also spoke with Alan McKim, chairman, president and CEO of Clean Harbors (CLH), an environmental clean up company focused in the oil and natural gas industries. McKim once again touted Clean Harbors' incinerator business as a bright spot for the company. Cramer continued his recommendation of Clean Harbors. Cramer said that investors need to be able to pick the best stocks in a stock pickerís market. He compared Cabella's (CAB) to Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) to find out which one reigns supreme in the hunting, fishing and sporting goods arena. According to Cramer, Cabella's has Dick's beat on store growth plans, same-store sales growth and higher private label sales. Also, the fact that its stock is cheap, trading at just 13x earnings compared to 17x for Dick's, makes things that much sweeter. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer opined on earnings from JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC). He said, earnings at these banks were superb. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) ECYT, LEG, SWI, LVS. (Bearish) BAC, ACI, VOD, KITD, WYNN, ACAS. Reference Link

07:01 EDTPFEPfizer to acquire Nimenrix, Mencevax from GlaxoSmithKline for $130M
Pfizer (PFE) announced that it has entered into an agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to acquire its quadrivalent meningitis ACWY vaccines, Nimenrix and Mencevax, for a total consideration of approximately $130M. This transaction will add two high-quality and complementary vaccines to Pfizerís portfolio, allowing the company to reach a broader global population. Nimenrix is a single dose meningococcal ACWY-TT conjugated vaccine designed to protect against Neisseria meningitidis, an uncommon but highly contagious disease that can lead to disability and death. Mencevax is a single-dose meningococcal ACWY unconjugated polysaccharide vaccine used to control outbreaks of meningococcal infection and for travelers to countries where the disease is endemic or highly epidemic. Pfizer does not expect this transaction to have any significant impact on its 2015 financial performance. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions as well as regulatory approvals in several markets, and is expected to occur in the second half of 2015. Pfizerís legal advisors for the transaction were Ropes & Gray and Clifford Chance.

05:55 EDTAAPLApple changes tune over music streaming royalties, Financial Times says
Apple has agreed to pay for all the music carried on its new streaming music service during free trials, reports the Financial Times. The company signaled the climbdown after singer Taylor Sift released an open letter Sunday that denounced Apple Music as "shocking" and "disappointing.", adding that her views were shared by "every artist, writer and producer" in her social circles. The company will now pay for the music it streams during free trials, though it would pay less for each stream than it will when a user has taken a full subscription. Reference Link
