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.
Cramer said this portfolio cannot have both Caterpillar and Deere and he would sell Deere and add Home Depot (HD).The second portfolio's top holdings included: Plains All American Pipeline (PAA), CVS Caremark (CVS), eBay (EBAY), American Campus Communities (ACC) and Las Vegas Sands (LVS). Cramer called this portfolio "beautiful." The third portfolio had: Smith & Wesson (SWHC), Whole Foods (WFM), Facebook (FB), New York Mortgage Trust (NYMT) and Manchester United (MANU) as its top five stocks. Cramer said this portfolio was also properly diversified.
No Huddle OffenseIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer said he can't ignore the irony that on the same day Chesapeak Energy (CHK - Get Report) founder and CEO Aubrey McClendon stepped down over an apparent fight with the company's board of directors, Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP) made a bid for Copano Energy (CPNO). Cramer explained that McClendon bet the company a few years ago on the premise that natural gas and natural gas liquids would rise in value, a bet that he lost big. Meanwhile, Kinder is making the same bet as McClendon, only a few years later. Cramer said that Kinder is now poised to reach the promised land that McClendon saw but was unable to achieve. Chesapeake will survive, noted Cramer, albeit as a smaller company, but Kinder will be the big winner, he said, as that company has always delivered for its shareholders.
