On the negative side, Cramer noted that Advair, Glaxo's current asthma drug, will be coming off patent in Europe soon and shortly thereafter in the U.S. Advair currently accounts for 20% of Glaxo's total revenue, but Cramer noted that many of the company's new drugs should offset any losses stemming from Advair over the next few years.
Trading at just 13.6 times next year's earnings, Cramer said Glaxo is a very cheap stock. He said a 16 times earnings multiple is certainly warranted and he'd be willing to pay even more for a company with such terrific growth.
A Noble Energy Play
Noble has laid out plans to double its production over the next five years and double its earnings per share over the next two years. Yet, despite those aggressive targets, this stock still trades at a meager 14 times earnings.Noble has growth prospects all over the globe. The company has 640,000 acres in the Niobrara shale in Colorado, an area that could potentially rival the Bakken shale in size and profitability. Current estimates predict Noble could have over two billion barrels of oil under its acreage in Colorado. Outside the U.S., Noble has assets in the Gulf of Mexico, Israel, West Africa and Latin America, just to name a few. Noble's reserves in Israel alone are estimated to be 17 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, a very valuable asset for Western Europe. With natural gas prices rebounding, Cramer said Noble stands to profit handsomely. The company's net asset value is already 37% higher than its stock price, as the markets typically only value asset fully as production comes online.
Lightning RoundIn the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (RRGB), Panera Bread (PNRA), 3D Systems (DDD), Flowserve (FLS), Emerson Electric (EMR), Briggs & Stratton (BGG), Sempra Energy (SRE) and Valero Energy (VLO). Cramer was bearish on Generac Holdings (GNRC), Mosaic (MOS) and Phillips 66 (PSX).
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. The first portfolio included: ConocoPhillips (COP), New York Times (NYT), Nordic American Tanker (NAT), Weyerhaeuser (WY) and Blackstone Group (BX). Cramer blessed this portfolio as properly diversified. The second portfolio's top holdings included: Realty Income (O), Rayonier (RYN), AT&T (T), General Electric (GE) and Ventas (VTR). Cramer said he loved this high-yielding portfolio for a 60-year-old investor who was thinking young. The third portfolio had: Facebook (FB), Ford (F), Wells Fargo (WFC), Microsoft (MSFT) and Alcoa (AA) as its top five stocks. Cramer said this portfolio can't have two tech stocks and he advised selling Microsoft and adding Merck (MRK).
No Huddle OffenseIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer opined on the only sector of the markets that hasn't rallied thus far -- technology. He said with the death of the PC, a slowdown in enterprise spending and the collapse in Apple (AAPL), a stock he owns for his charitable trust,
