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

12:10 EDTBNNYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday after opening in the red and trading in a narrow range throughout the morning. The domestic economic calendar only had two reports of consequence, and neither was particularly market moving. All eyes are on Cupertino, California, where Apple (AAPL) will shortly begin its much-anticipated product launch event. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NFIB small business optimism survey for August came in at 96.1, which was above the expected 96.0 reading. The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS report, showed job openings slipped 2K to about 4.67M in July. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple were up 1% near noon ahead of the tech giant's latest product launch event, which is scheduled to begin at 1 pm ET. Expectations are for the company to introduce the iPhone 6, which has widely been speculated to be bigger than past members of the line-up and may come in 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch sizes. The company is also expected to unveil a wearable device, likely a smartwatch, and a mobile payment system integrated with both... Shares of fast food giant McDonald’s (MCD) slid 1% after reporting its comparable sales were down 3.7% worldwide in August and that its China supplier issue will negatively impact its Q3 EPS by 15c-20c. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Annies (BNNY), which surged 38% after prepared foods giant General Mills (GIS) last night said that it had agreed to buy the mac and cheese maker for $820M, or $46 per share in cash. Shares of a number of other natural food makers climbed after the deal, as WhiteWave (WWAV) rose nearly 3% and Boulder Brands (BDBD) jumped over 8%. Following the deal announcement, shares of General Mills slipped about 0.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was Leidos (LDOS), which dropped 15% after the company reported lower than expected second quarter earnings and cuts its EPS view for the fiscal year. Also lower was MaxLinear (MXL), which fell 15% after the company said several of its cable and satellite customers have requested push-outs of shipments, resulting in the company lowering its Q3 revenue outlook and Needham downgrading the stock to Buy from Strong Buy. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 69.02, or 0.4%, to 17,042.40, the Nasdaq was down 14.93, or 0.33%, to 4,577.35, and the S&P 500 was down 6.74, or 0.34%, to 1,994.80.

10:12 EDTBNNY, HAINNatural food makers rise following Annies acquisition
Shares of a number of natural food makers are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Annies (BNNY), announced last night that it agreed to be acquired by General Mills (GIS). In a note to investors today, research firm Oppenheimer wrote that the deal should cause the valuations of two natural food makers, Boulder Brands (BDBD) and WhiteWave (WWAV), to rise in the near-term. WHAT'S NEW: General Mills last night said that it had agreed to buy Annie's for $46 per share in cash, or $820M. Annies' stock closed yesterday at $33.51. General Mills expects the transaction to be accretive to its earnings in the first 12 months following the completion of the deal. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh wrote that the acquisition of Annie's could cause the valuations of stocks in the natural foods sector to rise significantly. The terms of the acquisition of Annies imply a nearly 40x P/E multiple to consensus FY15 forecasts for the company, according to Parikh. The shares of Boulder Brands and WhiteWave should advance in the near-term, added the analyst, who kept Outperform ratings on both names PRICE ACTION: In early trading, WhiteWave rose 3.9% to $37.10, while Boulder Brands jumped 7.6% to $14.25. Another stock in the sector, Hain Celestial (HAIN), advanced 3.5% to $101.17, while Annies surged 37% to $46 and General Mills slipped 0.5% to $53.26.
