Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: An Irrational Stock Market
Cramer said this portfolio was "perfection" when it comes to diversification.
Cramer advised selling Dana and adding a drug company to properly diversify this portfolio.The third portfolio had: Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI), Eaton (ETN), HollyFrontier (HFC), Penske Automotive (PAG) and Westport Innovations (WPRT) as its top five stocks. Cramer said he'd allow Westport and Penske in the same portfolio assuming Westport is considered a speculative stock.
No Huddle OffenseIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer highlighted a handful of terrific earnings reports. He said that DuPont (DD), an Action Alerts PLUS holding, was like a "C" student delivering a solid "B" on the final exam. Meanwhile, Travelers delivered a fantastic quarter that no one saw coming. Then there's IBM (IBM), another Action Alerts PLUS name. Cramer said this company continues to make a ton of money with 90% margins in software. Finally, there's Google (GOOG), a company that blindsided investors last quarter, but redeemed itself this one with both earnings and a solid strategy for growth and profitability.
