Goldman Sachs upped its price target on shares of Apple (AAPL - Get Report) to $635. Cramer said the analyst has "increased confidence that the number is going to be made" when Apple reports earnings next week. AAPL is a holding in Cramer's charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS. AAPL was up $2.44 at $551.51.

Norfolk Southern (NSC - Get Report) will "switch back to coal" shipments because natural gas prices are getting too expensive, according to Cramer. NSC jumped 4.8% to $92.94.

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD - Get Report) moved sharply lower after a disappointing earnings report and a "very horrible guide-down," Cramer said of the stock that has doubled in the past year. AMD dropped 12% to $3.67.

RBC Capital Markets upgraded Unilever (UN) to sector perform from underperform. Cramer agreed, saying the media made it seem like Unilever had a bad quarter, which it didn't. "I like Unilever," he said, and CEO Paul Polman is doing a great job. UN ended the day up 1.6% to $40.55.

Regarding Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ - Get Report) slightly lower-than-expected full-year guidance, Wells Fargo says the company is simply trying to under-promise and over-deliver. Cramer wants to see better gross margins from JNJ but he still owns in it in the AAP portfolio. JNJ closed 29 cents higher at $94.32.
