Visa (V - Get Report) and MasterCard (MA - Get Report): Cramer reminded viewers that Visa and MasterCard are not banks and don't loan any money. They simply process transactions and make a bundle doing it.
That's why shares of Visa are up 35% so far this year while MasterCard is not far behind at 25% for the year. Given that the switch from paper money to debit and credit cards can trump even a weakened global economy, Cramer said both of these stocks should be on investors' buy lists.
