20:19 EDTZQK, AZN, WFT, NLY, AGNC, THLD, HPQ, CNX, GOOG, OPEN, CRM, PG, IBM, VVUSJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
Jim Cramer dedicated his first segment to the art of the calculated long-shot. He always preached diversification, staying in a mix of stocks to minimize their downside risk. But Cramer said that he also always preaches speculation, picking one stock with huge upside potential. One of those speculative picks paid off big Thursday was Vivus (VVUS) -- a fledgling drug maker that received approval for the first weight-loss drug to be approved in over 13 years. The shares soared over 78% Thursday. He said investors need to stay with the tried and true stocks, those like IBM (IBM) and Procter & Gamble (PG), both of which enjoyed small rallies Thursday, but having a speculative stock like Vivus makes investing all the more enjoyable. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com (CRM), a stock that came under fire when it last reported in November, but also one that was able to redeem itself Thursday with a 3c earnings beat on a 38% rise in revenues yoy. Cramer said Salesforce.com continues to deliver and he continued to recommend the stock. Then, Cramer sat down with Matt Roberts, president and CEO of OpenTable (OPEN), a momentum stock that fell out of favor in late-2011 but has since been crawling back to life, up 45% from its November lows. Roberts said he sees tremendous growth opportunities as only 12% of all restaurant reservations are currently being made online. He dispelled the notion that higher gas prices slow the company's growth. And said that Google (GOOG) is a partner, not a competitor. Cramer said that OpenTable's market cap is too small given the size of the opportunities the company has yet to address. He once again recommended owning the stock. SELL BLOCK: Consol Energy (CNX) has major headwinds. Cramer said with coal and natural gas both in the doghouse, Consol Energy should be there as well. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer said the tech industry is filled with once great companies that have faltered and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) may be next in line. The company has drained its resources, leaving it vulnerable. Previous management made a slew of terrible decisions, from stock buybacks at inflated prices to acquisitions that made no sense, Cramer said. New CEO, Meg Whitman, has a mixed track record of success, said Cramer, and her comments Thursday offered no real vision or cost-cutting initiatives. He advised investors to steer clear of Hewlett and invest in their rivals, as HP is now too big for a takeover, too complex to be broken up and too drained to advance under its own power. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) THLD; AGNC; NLY. (Bearish) WFT; AZN; ZQK. Reference Link
