Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: So Many Ways to Win (Final)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Earnings, takeovers and IPOs, this market's giving us multiple ways to win," Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers Thursday.

He told investors to forget about the averages and keep their eyes on the many opportunities that are out there.

On the earnings front, Cramer discussed how shares of VF Corp (VFC) dropped 10 points after the company's CEO offered what were perceived to be negative comments at an apparel conference a few weeks ago. Yet today, thanks to robust sales and declining cotton costs, shares of VF Corp are up 25 points from those lows, he explained.

Cramer said there's also money to be made with railroad CSX (CSX). He said the company reported yesterday to lackluster results, but after Union Pacific (UNP) jumped five points on their earnings today, CSX is now cheap.

Then there's Phillip Morris International (PM). He said the company has been saying that growth overseas is on fire and today the company delivered a wonderful quarter.

Turning to acquisitions, Cramer said that Express Scripts (ESRX), a stock which he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , announced today that it's acquiring MedcoHealth Solutions (MHS) and shares tanked, only to rebound within 30 minutes as analysts realized the power of this accretive deal.

On the IPO front, Cramer said that both Zillow (Z) and Suncoke Energy (SXC) were winners and there's likely to be more coming down the pike.

So while the hedge funds worry about trading the S&P 500 futures on every bit of global news, Cramer said home gamers should keep their eyes on the real prizes -- companies like these that are delivering impressive results.
