22:26 EDTCRM, HBI, PVH, JNJ, EOG, ZAGG, RRD, RL, FUN, AAPL, NFLX, REGN, VFC, HD, AEP, WMJim Cramer's "Mad Money"
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

05:55 EDTAAPLApple changes tune over music streaming royalties, Financial Times says
Apple has agreed to pay for all the music carried on its new streaming music service during free trials, reports the Financial Times. The company signaled the climbdown after singer Taylor Sift released an open letter Sunday that denounced Apple Music as "shocking" and "disappointing.", adding that her views were shared by "every artist, writer and producer" in her social circles. The company will now pay for the music it streams during free trials, though it would pay less for each stream than it will when a user has taken a full subscription. Reference Link

07:30 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $800 from $610 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein raised his 12-18 month price target for shares of Netflix to $800 from $610. The streaming service closed yesterday up $3.30 to $663.20. The new target reflects the company's plans to enter Japan, Cuba, Spain, Italy and Portugal, all in 2015, the analyst tells investors this morning in a research note. Helfstein's revised model assumes global subscribers of 239M in 2020, equaling 32% penetration of broadband homes, which the analyst says is consistent with Netflix's 2015 rates in older markets. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the stock.

The wearables market maintained its upward trajectory in the first quarter of 2015 as new vendors, including Apple (AAPL), prepared to enter the market.

Shipment volumes are expected to experience a compound annual growth rate, CAGR, of 42.6% over the five-year forecast period, reaching 155.7M units shipped in 2019. "We expect smart wearables, those capable of running third party apps, to take the lead in 2016," added Ubrani. "Smart wearables like the Apple (AAPL) Watch and Micosoft's (MSFT) Hololens are indicative of an upcoming change in computing, and the transition from basic to smart wearables opens up a slew of opportunities for vendors, app developers, and accessory makers." Other companies that have been mentioned in the wearable tech group include Google (GOOG), GoPro (GPRO) and Fitbit (FIT). Reference Link
