Jim Cramer's 8-Point Plan for Higher Stock Prices
Walt Disney (DIS): "With gasoline going down, Disney remains a buy. "
Am I Diversified?
In the "Am I Diversified?" segment, Cramer spoke with callers and responded to tweets sent via Twitter to @JimCramer to see if investors' portfolios have what it takes for today's markets.
No Huddle OffenseIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer said he doesn't care what Hewlett-Packard (HPQ - Get Report) CEO Meg Whitman has to say at the company's analyst day. The company is no longer relevant and it is a value trap for investors. Cramer said the only move that would make sense would be for HP to merge with Dell (DELL) and take the excess capacity out of the PC market. But with that scenario very unlikely to happen, the best one could hope would be a spin-off of HP's PC business, as IBM (IBM) did years ago after it realized it was offering no added value to consumers. Cramer said the problem with this scenario is HP wouldn't be left with a lot, only printers and consulting, and in the latter it pales by comparison to the likes of SAP (SAP) or Acenture (ACN). Without a tablet of a smartphone in its ecosystem, HP will slowly be pushed out of the enterprise, said Cramer. That notion may sound farfetched today, he concluded, but the funny thing about younger people is they get older and eventually replace those of the previous generation. --Written by Scott Rutt in Washington, D.C.
