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

09:56 EDTAAPLIDC: Apple leads smartphone vendors in China during Q1
IDCís latest Mobile Phone Tracker shows the China smartphone market contracted by 4% year-on-year with 98.8M units shipped in the first quarter of 2015. This is the first time in six years that the China smartphone market declined YoY as the market continues to mature. On a QoQ basis, the market contracted 8% on the back of a large inventory buildup at the end of last year. The study said Apple (AAPL) was the top smartphone vendor in China in the first quarter, with consumers still having a strong appetite for the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Xiaomi slipped to the second position as it faced strong competition from other vendors in the low to mid-range segment of the market, while Huawei maintained third position as it saw a good uptake in the mid-range segment. Samsung (SSNLF) and Lenovo (LNVGY) both led the market at least once last year, but rankings have since changed quickly, highlighting the volatility of consumers' brand preference in China.

BofA/Merrill raised Buy rated JPMorgan's price target to $73 following a meeting with Chairman Jamie Dimon. The analyst believes earnings surprises are likely and the market is over-discounting the impact of regulation. BofA/Merrill expects JPMorgan to benefit from its multi-dimensional model, EPS sensitivity to rising interest rates, and a shift in Fed monetary policy which will drive bond market volatility.
