In the biotech space, two deals are coming soon. Cramer said
OncoMed Pharmaceuticals has five cancer drugs in early stage testing, while
Agios Pharmaceuticals is working on early stage treatments for both cancer and metabolic disorders. Both IPOs are attractive, but Cramer said he'd buy and hold some OncoMed, while selling Agios after the IPO.
(NRG) upcoming spinoff of
NRG Yield, its dividend vehicle that's expects to offer 6% after it comes public. Cramer said with high-yielding stocks still under fire he's not a buyer of this stock, but would use it as a gauge for how the market is viewing the dividend stocks going forward.
Shopping for Grocery Stocks
Some stocks are under-appreciated on Wall Street. That's certainly the case with
(KR), said Cramer, the nation's second-largest grocery store chain that somehow caught a downgrade after announcing it was acquiring
(HTSI) last week.
Cramer said that for Kroger, which has 2,400 mainstream locations, the acquisition of upscale Harris Teeter makes perfect sense. That was evident by the fact that Kroger shares actually rose on the Teeter news, he said. But since there are no Harris Teeter or Kroger stores in New York, the analyst community missed that message.
With so much attention being paid to the organic section of the grocery business -- think
-- Cramer said its easy to see how a stock like Kroger could get overlooked. But unlike years past, even mainstream grocers are making money now thanks in part to increased margins from expanded private label offerings.
Trading at just 12.2 times earnings with a 9% growth rate, Cramer said that Kroger is still not an expensive stock and he's a buyer now that the company has chosen to enhance its growth though this smart acquisition.

Executive Decision: Martin Richenhagen
In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Martin Richenhagen, chairman, president and CEO of
(AGCO - Get Report)
, the agriculture equipment maker that's helping to feed our ever-growing global population.
Richenhagen said his company is helping farmers around the globe increase their production thanks to new technology that is reducing fuel consumption and the amount of fertilizers and pesticides needed to boost crop yields. He said business remains strong for agriculture around the globe, including in India where Agco is already the number-two player.
Agco is following the global trend of higher incomes. He said as emerging markets continue to expand, people want to eat better foods, including more meat, which then drives the need for increased crop production.
Cramer told viewers that anytime they can get a quality industrial name like Agco for under 10 times earnings, they should do so.
No Huddle Offense
In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer said investors must still keep an eye on China, but they no longer need to keep
eyes on the troubled economy.
The latest 7.5% Chinese GDP number was right in line with expectations, said Cramer, and that's the first step to forming a bottom. More importantly, the U.S. markets have been able to rally without China, which makes any news from that country an upside surprise, rather than a downside surprise.
China, he said, may soon be seen as a non-event like Europe, but for the time being it has just become less important than earlier this year.
