Cramer's Playbook

For the next installment of "Cramer's Playbook," Cramer answered the question, "What are the top three things recent college grads should keep in mind when investing?"

Cramer started off with a caveat: No one should be investing unless they've paid off their credit card debt. He said the high interest on credit cards can quickly undo any stock market gains, so any new investor should start debt-free.

Cramer's first tip for new investors: invest to save. He said investing in stocks is a lot more fun than saving with bank CDs, plus when you invest in things you like it'll be a lot harder to sell later on. That makes the stock market a great place to start saving.

Cramer's second tip: risk can be a good thing. Younger investors can afford to take more risks, Cramer said, as they'll have 40 years or more to make up any losses. Older investors need to be more cautious, but new investors can afford to speculate.

Cramer's last tip for new investors: start early. Whether it's with a company 401(k) or an individual Roth IRA, Cramer urged all recent college grads to start investing as soon as they can.

Lightning Round

In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Schlumberger (SLB), Zogenix (ZGNX), Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) and Sysco (SYY).

Cramer was bearish on Tesla Motors, Chegg (CHGG), Hercules Offshore (HERO), Molycorp (MCP), Ballard Power Systems (BLDP), NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and Vale (VALE).
