The markets finishing near their lows for the day on Monday. Jim Cramer said, that while the markets rallied last week in anticipation of good news from Spain, what actually transpired fell far short of expectations. All meaning that the crisis will lumber on. If the news out of Europe really had fixed the problem, investors would have been reaching for gold, noted Cramer, as any true bailout would be seen as inflationary. He said the CurrencyShares Euro Trust (FXE) would have also risen above $130 and the bond yields for most European countries would have fallen even more. Cramer said what the European countries need most is growth; to date, none of the bail out plans offer growth. That's why he continues to recommend stocks that offer domestic security and dividends and are not overly economically sensitive. AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) topped Cramer's list, along with cigarette maker Altria (MO). Then, Cramer pitted the upstart Zipcar (ZIP) against the incumbent Hertz Global (HTZ) to see which company rules the rental car market. Since its IPO shares of Zipcar are down 43% and might not yet be done heading lower. Zipcar trades at 29% earnings and has shaky growth prospects, Cramer said he prefers to invest with Hertz, which trades at only 8x earnings with a 12% long-term growth rate. "It's not even a fair fight," Cramer concluded. In the age-old question of which is better, Coca-Cola (KO) or Pepsico (PEP), Cramer announced a stunning change of opinion: He's eliminated Coke from his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, and is now going for Pepsi. CRamer contends, in today's markets what had once been tailwinds for Coke are now changing into headwinds, making Pepsi the winning bet. Not all stocks go up in a straight line, and that's why Cramer circled back to Chart Industries (GTLS), a stock that's up 44% since his original recommendation in February 2011, but also one that's fallen 13% since Cramer last spoke with the company's CEO on April 13. The biggest driver for Chart Industries were last week's announcements by Westport Innovations (WPRT) that they're partnering with equipment giant Caterpillar (CAT) to make natural gas mining equipment and locomotives and the announcement that Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) will be building 200 natural gas fueling stations across the U.S. That's good news for Chart, which makes the technology and the tanks to liquefy natural gas for vehicle use. With so many positives, Cramer said that shares of Chart deserve to be much higher than where they trade today, affording investors a terrific entry point.

08:31 EDTDOWSadara JV says on track for first production units to start up in 2015
Sadara Chemical Company is progressing on-budget and on-schedule in alignment with Dow’s strategy to enable cost-advantaged growth in fast-growing regions such as Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, and Eastern and Central Europe. Sadara is a joint venture developed by The Dow Chemical Company and Saudi Arabian Oil Company. vSignificant progress has been made in starting up key infrastructure and utility systems. Overall construction of the manufacturing facility is now approximately 94% complete with 47,000 personnel on site in Jubail Industrial City II, Saudi Arabia. The commissioning and startup of key utilities infrastructure is underway and the process for first production units will begin in the second half of the year with initial polyethylene production beginning near the end of 2015. Full site operations remains on track for the end of 2016. Sadara’s 26 manufacturing assets are scheduled for a sequenced start-up process, beginning with the polyolefins envelope to maximize timing in the ethylene cycle, followed by ethylene oxide/propylene oxide and their derivatives, with the polyurethanes portfolio in the final phase. Customer excitement is increasing as Dow businesses actively prepare to market and sell the majority of products produced by Sadara Chemical Company via agreements with the joint venture, to support growth in key markets such as packaging, construction, electronics, furniture and bedding, automotive and transportation. Progress also continues as Dow works with its customers to attract downstream investments to the advanced manufacturing value park adjacent to Sadara, PlasChem Park, in support of a diversified Saudi economy and job growth in the region.
