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.

Deutsche Bank lowered its 2015 Macau gross gaming revenue forecast to down 21.4% from down 8.4% saying the demand issues will not be solved by expanding capacity. The firm's confidence in a Macau turnaround remains "muted," but it continues to view shares of MGM Resorts (MGM) as "meaningfully undervalued." It views Buy-rated Wynn Resorts (WYNN) as better suited for longer term investors at this stage, and lowered its price target for the stock to $170 from $176. Deutsche also cut its price target for Hold-rated Las Vegas Sands (LVS) to $49 from $53.

11:59 EDTCOPUSW to expand ULP oil strike
The United Steelworkers, USW, announced that it will expand its unfair labor practice strike, ULP, by launching a work stoppage tonight at midnight at the Motiva Enterprises refinery in Port Arthur, Texas. This refinery, a 50-50 joint venture between Shell Oil Company and Saudi Refining, produces more than 600,000 barrels per day. In addition, 24 hour strike notices were delivered at Motiva’s two Louisiana refineries in Convent and Norco as well as at the Shell Chemical plant in Norco. Capacity at these facilities is 235,000 and 238,000. These refineries are also jointly operated by Royal Dutch Shell and Saudi Refining, Inc. of Saudi Arabia. “The industry’s refusal to meaningfully address safety issues through good faith bargaining gave us no other option but to expand our work stoppage,” said USW International President Leo W. Gerard. Publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
