Jim Cramer said, "Once people feel stocks aren't the enemy, we'll head higher". He pondered the significance of the Dow hitting 13,000- and said "this milestone matters". Professional investors tend to focus on the S&P 500, but for smaller investors, retail investors, Dow 13,000 could be significant. Breaking 13,000 could be just want the little guys need to jump back in, Cramer says. Long-term, stocks are still the best game in town when compared to bonds, U.S. treasuries and bank CDs, he noted. Cramer remained bullish on high-yielding dividend stocks, names like Cedar Fair (FUN) and American Electric Power (AEP), especially given that dividends receive special tax treatments. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with Mark Papa, chairman and CEO of EOG Resources (EOG), which delivered a 28c earnings beat on a 55% rise in revenues last week. Shares of EOG are currently trading below where it reported those stellar numbers. Papa said that despite what Wall Street thinks, he's very comfortable with the company's game plan and will continue to reduce natural gas production and ramp up oil and liquids production until natural gas prices stabilize. His outlook on oil prices however, remained strong. Papa estimated the price of oil to be between $100-$110 a barrel, barring a conflict in Iran, based simply on rising worldwide demand. Cramer remained bullish on EOG, telling investors that the company is still one of his favorite oil plays. OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer and colleague Dan Fitzpatrick went over the chart of Apple (AAPL). Fitzpatrick said the rally appears done, for now, until all of the momentum players get flushed out of the stock. Fitzpatrick's only caveat, if Apple were to break through its highs of $526 a share, then the stock would be poised for still another move higher. Cramer said he doesn't care about the charts when it comes to Apple. He said that earnings power is all that matters for this tech juggernaut. With the company elected to earn upwards of $55 a share in earnings, Cramer said he would step up and buy Apple on any weakness. Next, Cramer once again welcomed David Steiner, president and CEO of Waste Management (WM), to the show for an update on the company's outlook. Steiner said that Waste Management is seeing a steady recovery in trash volumes, a trend he expects to see continue throughout 2012. Cramer gave kudos to Steiner for the company's near 4% dividend yield and reiterated his buy recommendation on the the stock. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Gas prices are clearly hinged on the building conflict with Iran. Cramer said that gas prices won't likely go lower until the conflict is resolved or the world economy slows to where demand for gasoline falls dramatically. CLOSING COMMENTS: Cramer removed outgoing Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) CEO, William Weldon, from his Wall of Shame list of the worst CEO's. He said that after so many product recalls under Weldon's tenure, wealth will have to be created for J&J shareholders now that he's retiring. Cramer also had bullish words for Home Depot (HD), which reported a strong quarter Tuesday. LIGHTNING ROUND: (Bullish) RL; PVH; VFC. (Bearish) RRD; HBI; REGN; ZAGG; CRM; NFLX. Reference Link

10:44 EDTNFLX, AAPLNetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.

07:52 EDTNFLXNetflix downgraded at Evercore ISI
As previously reported, Evercore ISI downgraded Netflix to Sell from Hold. The firm downgraded shares and reduced its price target to $380 from $450 due to increasing competition among existing and emerging distributors combined with content providers who are becoming increasingly leveraged to new channels through OTT offerings of their own. Evercore ISI believes intensifying competition will necessitate increased investment with uncertain returns and lowered estimates.
