Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: As China Goes...

Search Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" trading recommendations using our exclusive "Mad Money" Stock Screener.


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Give us just a glint of hope that China may be recovering and the markets will take up every stock that's even remotely related, Jim Cramer said on "Mad Money" Tuesday. He spoke on that country's softer-than-expected inflation numbers as well as a positive outlook from Alcoa (AA).

Cramer said that for weeks now the markets have been unable to rally the machinery and materials stocks, as they depend on a strong China for growth. But thanks to some softer-than-expected inflation numbers, these stocks came roaring back to life on the hopes that China may have finally tamed its inflation beast. If that happens, said Cramer, then all will be forgiven in the market's eyes.

Then there's aluminum maker Alcoa, a company that provides one of the best outlooks on the global economy. Cramer said that Alcoa was also positive on China, saying the country is seeing strong demand for cars and trucks, as well as for commercial construction and aircraft. China also used three billion more aluminum cans.

That was enough to send the iPath Dow Jones Copper ETF (JJC) ETF higher, and should be great news for Freeport McMoRan (FCX), BHP Billiton (BHP) and Vale (VALE), a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS.

The rally should extend to truck makers including Cummins (CMI), said Cramer, as well as for oil stocks such as EOG Resources (EOG) and casinos including Wynn Resorts (WYNN).

Cramer said even the stalled tech rally may be helped by a renewed growth in China. Shares of Apple (AAPL), another Action Alerts PLUS holding, can't go down forever, Cramer noted, and does appear to be at least trying to form a bottom.

Executive Decision: Alan Wilson

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Alan Wilson, chairman, president and CEO of spice maker McCormick (MKC), a stock with a 1.9% yield that's delivered an 818% gain over the past 20 years, including reinvested dividends, twice that of the S&P 500.

Wilson said McCormick is the flavor behind many great food products and restaurants, and his company is constantly working toward keeping the category fresh with new products and new flavors. He said spices are a seasonal item, with consumers looking for holiday spices in the winter and grilling spices in the summer, making for a dynamic business that's always changing.
