NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The rich aren't like you and me, Jim Cramer reminded his "Mad Money" TV show viewers Thursday as he revisited his "Great Gatsby" index of stocks that cater to the rich and compared them to the markets overall.
Cramer said that overall, his list of 11 premium stocks has trounced the S&P 500, delivering a return double that of the broader averages since the list debuted on March 13.
Among the winners were Michael Kors (KORS), which saw a 30% rise in same-store sales; Lululemon Athletica (LULU), which rebounded nicely from its yoga pants recall; and Whole Foods Market (WFM), which showed its true colors by surprising all of the anaylsts.Other Gatsby winners included Starbucks (SBUX), Tiffany (TIF) and Coach (COH), along with Panera Bread (PNRA). There were some laggards in the index, noted Cramer, including Ralph Lauren (RL), Toll Brothers (TOL) and Estee Lauder (EL). There were also disappointing results from Nordstrom (JWN), said Cramer. But all of those negatives were promptly undone by Saks (SKS), the high-end retailer that popped a full 32% since March, making it the best-performing stock in Cramer's Gatsby index. So while the middle class may still be struggling to qualify for a home loan or find work, all appears to be well with the rich, who are clearly spending a lot more than you or me, Cramer concluded.
