23:13 EDTRIMM, AIG, BUD, AMRN, WWW, QCOM, CTRP, HIG, SFL, TGT, PEP, ABT, FB, MS, VZ, AAPL, WFC, BGS, ED, SHW, MPOJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" viewers Wednesday they'd better avoid stocks steeped in high drama and stick with those boring names that simply make you money. Case in point, Research In Motion (RIMM has seen the love affair with its users wither and die. Cramer said after years of under-investing in new technology and a string of service outages, RIM is now in a tailspin from which few companies ever recover. The possibility of a takeover is promising, but he fundamentals are in decline, Cramer concluded. Another high-drama stock is Facebook (FB), which hit a new low again Wednesday. Cramer said investors need to wait for at least a full quarter of results from the company or for the lockup period to expire to really know how low this stock can go. Finally, there's Morgan Stanley (MS). which is a constant battle between the bulls and the bears. Cramer questions if the balance sheet is OK? And if ratings cuts are looming based on European exposure. Cramer said with so many betting against this firm, it's simply too hard to call. Cramer said that Instead of these high-drama names, investors should consider Verizon (VZ), a wireless company that sells all types of handsets, not just one. They should also consider Apple (AAPL), which offers a low multiple and high growth as well as products that continue to dazzle. In the banking sector, Cramer gave the nod to Wells Fargo (WFC), a far safer and less dramatic alternative to Morgan Stanley.EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer sat down with David Wenner, president and CEO of B&G Foods (BGS), a stock that's up 95% since Cramer first recommended it in October 2010. Shares of B&G rose 83% last year and currently sport a 4.6% dividend yield. Wenner said B&G is up to the challenge with all its acquisitions and the company's balance sheet remains in great shape. Wenner noted that B&G's acquisitions are always accretive to earnings. B&G is in a rare position of not having a lot of commodity exposure, and the company hedges its bets when necessary. Cramer continued his recommendation of B&G Foods as a great, non-European stock for investors' portfolios. In a turbulent market, investors need dividend protection, Cramer said, unveiling a new group of "Dividend Royalty" stocks that fit that bill perfectly. He reminded viewers that nearly 40% of all the gains from the S&P's 500 come from reinvested dividends, which makes a strong, diversified dividend portfolio one that's worthwhile to have. Cramer said he chose these five names from a list of companies that have raised their dividend every year since 1980. After accounting for diversification, these stocks rose to the top of the list: ConEd (ED), Sherwin-Williams (SHW), Abbott Labs (ABT), pepsico (PEP), Target (TGT).
