Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: 9 Stocks That Outperform Google

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


NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's hard to believe that just nine years ago Google (GOOG) had its initial public offering, Jim Cramer said on "Mad Money" Monday. But in that nine years, Google's stock has rallied 900%, making shareholders a ton of money.

What's more unbelievable, however, is there are nine other stocks that have far outperformed Google over the past nine years, said Cramer. All of them have been accessible to every investor.

Topping his list of the nine best-performing stocks in the past nine years is Priceline.com (PCLN), everyone's favorite travel Web site. That stock has risen 4,598%, a remarkable run.

Priceline is followed by Monster Beverage (MNST) and Apple (AAPL), a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS . Those stocks have soared 4,293% and 3,171%, respectively.

Two biotechs follow Apple: Regeneron (REGN) and Alexion Pharmacuticals (ALXN), up 2,720% and 2,592%, respectively. Cramer said he's still a fan of Regeneron but worries about Alexion's valuation.

Also making the list: Netflix (NFLX), 1,533%, and Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), 1,445%. Cramer said he's still a big believer of Netflix but told investors to be careful with Intuitive Surgical.

Rounding out the list, it's Salesforce.com (CRM) and Cabot Oil & Gas (COG), the unlikely oil producer that has made big inroads in the Marcellus shale.

Cramer said while he certainly owes a debt of thanks to Google for its innovations and terrific stock performance over the past nine years, it's also important to remember there have been a number of big winners out there, and many of those are just getting started.

Healthy Food, Healthy Stocks

The natural and organic food sector has been on fire, Cramer told viewers, but even in a $63 billion industry that's expected to grow 9.5% this year it pays to stick with the best-of-breed stocks. That's why for the first installment of his "Cramer's Cookout" series, Cramer recommended Whole Foods Market (WFM) as his best-in-show pick.

Cramer said Whole Foods has something most companies only dream of -- customer trust and loyalty. That's why the company's 340 locations are booming. Whole Foods expects to open 33 to 38 new locations, representing 8% to 9% growth overall -- not bad for a group that struggles to deliver 2% to 3% growth. Yet, Whole Foods shares still only trade for 30 times earnings despite its 19% growth rate.
