Am I Diversified?
Cramer spoke with callers to see if their portfolios have what it takes. The first caller's portfolio included Chevron (CVX), McDonald's (MCD), Caterpillar (CAT), Kimberly-Clark (KMB) and Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA).
Cramer said "Hallelujah" to this collection of stocks.
Lightning RoundCramer was bullish on Oracle (ORCL), Amarin (AMRN) and Sanofi-Aventis (SNY). Cramer was bearish on Computer Associates (CA), McDermott International (MDR) and IntraLinks Holdings (IL).
Concluding RemarksIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer handicapped the likelihood on a European bailout. He said that there's only a 60% chance of a bailout at this point, but all of the options are hard to swallow. Cramer said that the Europeans could print euros to buy bad bonds and take them out of circulation, they could continue the status quo and rescue only as much as needed, or the can simply let the countries and banks fend for themselves, which will most certainly lead to deep recessions. Given that any of these options could still happen, Cramer said investors still can't own any banks stocks and need to hide in high-yielding dividend names. He said even those will fall on the whims of Europe, but they'll at least be the first to bounce back. --Written by Scott Rutt in Washington, D.C.
