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,
Healthy Food, Healthy StocksThe 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.
