NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer answers Twitter (TWTR - Get Report) questions from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, and the first one asks about Automatic Data Processing (ADP - Get Report), which had a great quarter followed by a stock price drop.
Cramer suggests investors buy stock in the company, which is doing a spin off. He calls it a great company with a comeback in employment and notes sometimes stocks don't react the way they should in the short term.
"We rate AUTOMATIC DATA PROCESSING (ADP) a BUY. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results."

He says BP is doing incredibly well operationally, but a potential increase in sanctions means a better time to buy the stock could be coming. Finally, Cramer thinks Time Warner (TWX - Get Report) can go higher and compares the situation to Allergan (AGN - Get Report) with Valeant (VRX - Get Report). He thinks CEO Jeffrey Bewkes has done a great job and suggests investors hold on to see what he does. Cramer adds Rupert Murdoch and Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA - Get Report) are not done bidding higher and calls this situation "a win" for investors.
