Kullman concluded by saying that all of DuPont's research starts with the customer and the customer's problems. Science alone will not be successful, she said, until it solves a need.
Cramer said that DuPont's approach to both its science and diversity is exactly what makes the company one of America's finest.
Invest in America: Natural Gas
In a second "Invest in America" segment, Cramer turned to our country's natural gas boom, highlighting what he said are his top three picks in the group.
Cramer has long been a fan of Cheniere Energy (LNG), the company that's destined to become our country's first exporter of liquified natural gas. The company's export terminal in Louisiana is nearing completion and Cheniere is nearing approval for a second in Texas.But now that the bears have ravaged many of the master limited partnerships, Cramer said the way to play Cheniere is with Cheniere Energy Partners (CQP), the company's MLP that sports a 6.6% yield. Cramer also gave the nod to Cabot Oil & Gas (COG), a company with stunning production growth that has been more than enough to offset sluggish natural gas prices. He said with new pipelines headed from the Marcellus shale to both New York and New England, Cabot is clearly in the right place at the right time. Finally, with the prospects for natural gas as a surface fuel improving, Cramer said he continues to like engine-maker Cummins (CMI). He noted that just today UPS (UPS) said it plans on using more natural gas vehicles, and all of those new vehicles will likely use Cummins' engines.
Lightning RoundIn the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Realty Income (O), Amazon.com (AMZN), DaVita (DVA) and Walt Disney (DIS). Cramer was bearish on Erickson Air-Crane (EAC), Cray (CRAY) and Apollo Residential Mortgage (AMTG).
Off the ChartsIn the "Off The Charts" segment, Cramer went head to head with colleague Bob Lang over the charts of the regional banks. Cramer has long been a champion of the regional banks as they are among the few companies that actually make more money as interest rates rise. According to Lang's research, the KBW Regional Bank Index, or KRX, is worthy of its title of the best performer of 2013 because the index is above all of its key moving averages and is consistently making higher highs and higher lows. Kang also has positive notes on Regions Financial (RF), a stock that's up 200% from the 2008 lows; KeyCorp (KEY), a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust,
No Huddle OffenseIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer tried to get into the heads of the bears to figure out what they were thinking during the market's selloff over the past few days. Cramer said it's easy to see what scares the bears because there are countless markets around the globe that could collapse at any moment. From places like Japan, China and Thailand to countless countries in Europe, all the way to India, Brazil and Mexico, many of the world's economies are teetering. So can you blame the bears for panicking? In a word, yes. Cramer said that for all the worrying, these markets ended up doing just fine. "Boy, did the bears get it wrong," he concluded.
