Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Money Talks

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Money talks and statistics walk, Jim Cramer proclaimed on "Mad Money" Tuesday.

He sounded off against those investors who rely solely on month-old government surveys to make their investment decisions. "Cramer don't play that," he continued, offering Home Depot (HD) as the perfect example of why looking in the rear-view mirror is no way to invest.

Cramer said that while the government's "latest" data show housing and hiring as still being weak, Home Depot reported a beautiful quarter, with a 4.8% increase in same store sales. The company noted that California and Nevada, two of the hardest-hit areas during the housing collapse, were among this quarter's biggest gainers, a sign that there's not only hiring going on, but also pent-up demand for housing.

Home Depot management said homeowners underwater on their mortgages typically spend $1,000 a year on home maintenance and repair, but those above water spend three times that amount. What's that say for Home Depot's future? Things are looking up, said Cramer.

Among the bright spots in Home Depot's quarter were big-ticket appliances. Think Whirlpool (WHR) and General Electric (GE), a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS . There's also kitchen and bath, which is Fortune Brands (FBHS) and Masco (MAS). Also on the list, LED lighting, which means Cree (CREE), and tools, which plays into Stanley Black & Decker (SWK).

Cramer said he'd be a buyer of all those stocks, along with Home Depot itself, which is buying back more of its stock and will surely prosper as America's economy awakens once more.

Hot IPOs

IPOs have been on fire this year, Cramer told viewers because Wall Street has been giving money away to entice investors back to the market. That's why a stock like Tableau Software (DATA) was able to book a 51% gain on its first day of trading last week and why two new IPOs this week are worth getting in on.

Cramer said that Channel Advisor, which will trade under the ticker ECOM, helps companies sell their wares through multiple channels like (AMZN), eBay (EBAY - Get Report), another Action Alerts holding, and others. He said the software as a service company reminds him a lot of (CRM) because it charges monthly fees to use its platform.
