Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Haves and Have-Nots

Search Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" trading recommendations using our exclusive "Mad Money" Stock Screener.


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The market's divided between the haves and the have-nots, Jim Cramer told "Mad Money" viewers Wednesday. With the distance between the two groups growing, it's only a matter of time before the have-nots become cheap enough to buy.

Cramer explained that among the companies that can do no wrong are those with declining costs in environments where they charge more. He said that drug stocks are among this group, as are consumer stocks including Coca-Cola (KO).

Everything from the price of plastics and natural gas, to oil and gasoline to labor is falling in America, which means that all of these savings flow right to the bottom line. Even appliance maker Whirlpool (WHR) is seeing relief in the way of decreased competition, making it among the must-have stocks.

On the have-not side of the equation are the banks, said Cramer, a group that continues to battle lawsuits and fight the Federal Reserve with low interest rates. Even if a bank does post a good quarter, he said, it's quickly dismissed by investors.

Technology is also among the hated stocks, noted Cramer, with stocks like Intel (INTC) drawing yawns from investors and, of course, Apple (AAPL), a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, continuing its freefall.

Oil and oil service stocks are also in the doldrums, said Cramer, as are companies even remotely related to mining or minerals. It's as if no one uses aluminum or copper anymore, he concluded, even though that's hardly the case. That's why investors need to stick with the "haves" for the moment, as the "have-nots" have not yet hit the bottom.

Executive Decision: David Demshur

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer once again checked in with David Demshur, chairman, president and CEO of Core Laboratories (CLB), which today delivered a seven-cent-a-share earnings beat of an 11% rise in revenue. Shares of Core Labs are up 109% since Cramer first got behind the company in February 2010 and 11% since he last spoke with Demshur this past January.

Demshur said Core Labs was able to deliver another great quarter for shareholders and is seeing strength in all of its divisions. He noted that in its production enhancement division, for example, engineers are hard at work developing technology that will breathe new life into older oil fields.
