23:00 EDTFFIV, ETH, MPC, NLY, LZB, RIMM, CSCO, NAT, CLNE, COH, SKT, WHR, SHW, ETN, CBE, PVH, WRC, BNNY, HAIN, USGJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer told "Mad Money" viewers Wednesday the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy may have been just what our ailing economy needed -- "nothing has the potential to get things moving like a widespread disaster." Cramer said with the damage from Sandy estimated between $30B-$50B, it's no wonder stocks like USG (USG), Whirlpool (WHR) and Sherwin-Williams (SHW) were on the move higher Wednesday. But even bigger than the private sector is the federal government, said Cramer, as roads and other infrastructure needs to be rebuilt. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with Sandy Cutler, chairman and CEO of Eaton (ETN). Shares of Eaton have been trading higher due, in part, to the company's planned acquisition of Cooper Industries (CBE). Cutler expects many of Eaton's electrical products will be a part of that rebuilding effort from Hurricane Sandy. Eaton currently derives 60% of its revenue from its electrical businesses. Cutler said that Eaton is still seeing construction activity building. Cutler said our country is on track to return to 1.5M housing starts a year, although it ail likely take a few years to get there. Cramer said that with so much building ramping up, Eaton is the company investors need to own. Then, Cramer sat down with Manny Chirico, CEO of PVH Corp (PVH), on the heels of the company announcing it is acquiring Warnaco (WRC), a licensee of its Calvin Klein brand, for $2.9B. Cramer suggested that PVH buy Warnaco when he last spoke with Chirico on Sept 6. Shares of PVH spiked 20% on the news. Cramer said that he remained a big fan of PVH as it continues to grow and reward shareholders. Cramer also spoke with John Foraker, CEO of Annie's (BNNY), a stock that's up 14% since Cramer recommended investors get in on the company's IPO earlier this year. Annie's just reported a 1c earnings miss on better than expected sales with upbeat guidance. Foraker said his company has a great brand but certainly needs to execute better in order to meet growing customer demand. Cramer said that Annie's, along with Hain Celestial (HAIN), remains among his favorite healthy-eating stocks. Finally, Cramer sat down with Steve Tanger, president and CEO of Tanger Factory Outlets (SKT), a retail REIT with a 2.7% yield. Tanger said that doesn't expect any effect on earnings from the minimal damage from Hurricane Sandy. Tanger keeps tabs on the sales of all its tenants. In the case of Coach (COH), which struggled last quarter, Tanger said that company has a great management team that has already corrected the pricing policies that led to the declines. Cramer continued his recommendation of Tanger Factory Outlets. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) ETH, MPC, NLY. (Bearish) LZB, RIMM, CSCO, NAT, CLNE, FFIV. Reference Link

14:03 EDTWHRWhirlpool technical comments before earnings
On a long-term technical basis the shares have a large bearish pattern on the weekly chart, a double top. The major initial downside objective for this pattern is at the $125 area. This is the base of the mid-portion of the familiar "M" shape of the double top. On negative news, it is possible that that area could be tested once again. A move below the $125 area would set the shares on a path to long-term bearish for price trend. On better news, the $147.50 area would be initial resistance. On an increasing scale of positive surprise, next upside objectives would be at $151.84 and $156.66.

11:45 EDTCOHJefferies sees further risk for Michael Kors despite recent decline
Michael Kors' (KORS) margin pressures and slowing same-store sales growth, along with high expectations for the company, are reasons to be cautious on the stock, research firm Jefferies wrote in a note to investors today. The firm cut its price target on the luxury accessories retailer to $80 from $95. WHAT'S NEW: Michael Kors' same-store sales are slowing, while the company's gross margins are coming under pressure due to increased discounts of its products and its roll out of new stores, Jefferies analyst Randal Konik wrote. Additionally, investors' high expectations for the company will make it difficult for the stock to appreciate even if its results beat expectations, the analyst stated. Even with shares pulling back over the past few days, Konik says risk remains skewed to the downside and kept a Hold rating on the stock. Of note, this is the second time in two weeks that Jefferies cut its estimates for the company. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Expressing a very different outlook yesterday on Michael Kors was Credit Suisse analyst Christian Buss. Michael Kors is "one of the least discounted brands available during the seasonal clearance period ahead of early fall shipments" according to Buss, who wrote that he was "compelled" by the recent decline in the stock. The analyst reiterated a $107 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: The company's competitors include Kate Spade (KATE) and Coach (COH). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Michael Kors was nearly flat near $82 per share.
