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.
