Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Seller's Remorse

Outside of BlackRock, Cramer said he's also bullish on Blackstone (BX). That stock has rallied 30% since the fiscal cliff debacle and the company's IPO business is also accelerating.

Getting honorable mentions were shares of KKR (KKR), with its stable 6.7% yield; Carlyle Group (CG), with a 6.8% yield and Apollo Global Management (APO), with its hefty 7.9% yield.

Cramer said all of these firms will give investors exposure to not only the private equity market, but also to all of the other hot places to be when stock market dealmaking and investing heats up.

PetSmart Unleashed

There are few things people love more than their pets, Cramer told viewers, which is why the bull market in pet stocks is still alive and well and why PetSmart (PETM), a long-time Cramer fave, remains the best way to play the move.

Cramer noted shares of PetSmart are up 365% since he first got behind the name in March 2009, but they've also stumbled recently because the company's CEO resigned and its three-cent-a-share earnings beat came from lower tax rates and not a boost in revenue.

But Cramer placed at least some of the blame for disappointment on the analyst community, which failed to lower numbers on PetSmart in the face of Hurricane Sandy and fiscal cliff jitters.

Cramer said PetSmart may has stumbled but it's far from down for the count. He said that people cut spending on many things but not their pets. With pet adoptions on the rise, there's still plenty of room for growth for this chain. While the company's executed 15% growth is less than its previous 20% growth, its shares have fallen to just 14 times earnings, which makes them cheap, said Cramer.

PetSmart is also innovating with such items as branded pet apparel, all while its kennel services unit has evolved into four-star pet hotels. Put it all together and the time is right to get back into PetSmart, Cramer said.

Lightning Round

In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Archer Daniels Midland (ADM).

Cramer was bearish on Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), Pitney Bowes (PBI) and Groupon (GRPN).

Executive Decision: Sam Thomas

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer sat down with Sam Thomas, president and CEO of Chart Industries (GTLS), a stock that's up 113% since Cramer first recommended it in February 2011.

Thomas said natural gas has ballooned into a global story, with some regions of the world moving faster than others. He said in China, for instance, the market is being driven by the fuel's lower costs but also its environmental benefits. Meanwhile, here in the U.S., costs play a factor but so, too, does the desire for energy independence. He said the industry has now moved beyond the tipping point where big investments are being made and will be seen to completion.

When asked whether Washington will ever support natural gas, Thomas said that it likely won't, but that's a good thing. He said pure economics are driving natural gas at the moment and that's the best way to get things done over the long term.

Thomas added that the U.S can win from natural gas whether it uses the fuel for surface vehicles like locomotives and cars, chooses to export the fuel to other areas of the world or simply uses it as a feedstock to become the low-cost leader in chemicals and plastics. No matter which way we go, America wins, which is why Chart continues to look for new employees right here in America.

No Huddle Offense

In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer said that while the markets may hate Best Buy (BBY) and Ross Stores (ROST), now is the time to buy on weakness for these two stocks.

Cramer said that shares of Best Buy should never have fallen as far as they did given that the company is the last man standing in the electronics world. Meanwhile, Ross remains a terrific regional to national story.

Investors always say they want a bargain, Cramer concluded, and the markets have delivered.
