NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- "Look at all the ways to win in this market," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Thursday.

In the spirit of Christmas, Cramer provided 12 gifts the market gave investors today.

1. Better-than-expected earning from Lululemon Athletica (LULU), a move that caused the shorts to cover their positions.

2. Better-than-expected earnings from Diamond Foods (DMND), causing the shorts in that stock to cover as well.

3. Red hot IPOs in China. Cramer said after big gains, he'd ring the register in these newly minted Chinese stocks.

4. A special dividend of $1 per share from Freeport McMoRan (FCX).

5. A two for one stock split, also from Freeport McMoRan.

6. A big acquisition for Helen of Troy (HELE) of the privately held Kaz brand of personal care products.

7. Increased revenue forecasts from networking equipment maker Ciena (CIEN).

8. A refinancing deal for Dean Foods (DF) to help it stave off a looming bankruptcy.

9. A big contract win for Arbitron (ARB) as it inked a deal with Clear Channel.

10. Buy recommendations for Legg Mason (LM) and Janus Capital Group (JNS).

11. Charles River Labs (CRL) bowed to shareholder pressure and put itself up for sale, unlocking the company's true value.

12. Beleaguered AIG (AIG) is finally beginning to pay back some of its government bailout money.

These were Just a few of the many ways to win in this market, said Cramer, even on a seemingly uneventful day.
