Am I Diversified?
Cramer spoke with callers to see if their portfolios have what it takes for today's markets. The first caller's portfolio included Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), Apple (AAPL), Qualcomm (QCOM), Frontier Communications (FTR) and Cimarex Energy (XEC).
Cramer said this portfolio needed surgery and advised selling Hewlett and Qualcomm and add a financial and a healthcare stock.
Lightning RoundCramer was bullish on Kraft Foods (KFT), ConocoPhillips (COP), Apple (AAPL), SPDR Gold Shares (GLD), Heckmann (HEK), Baidu.com (BIDU) and Devon Energy (DVN). Cramer was bearish on SodaStream (SODA), Nokia (NOK) and Newmont Mining (NEM).
IPO PlaysIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer said that slow and steady will win the race when it comes to today's pair of IPOs. He said it's time to ring the register on Demandware (DWRE), an ecommerce software provider that priced at $16 a share an popped 43% in its first day of trading. Cramer said the trade has been made and it's time to sell. But for the IPO of Allison Transmission (ALSN), a stock that opened at $23 a share only to trade flat on the day, is a different story. Cramer said this former spin-off of General Motors (GM) is right in the middle of the raging bull market in trucks and he would be a buyer of the stock long term. --Written by Scott Rutt in Washington, D.C.
