NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Would you rather own a winner or a whiner? Jim Cramer asked on  Mad Money Tuesday. Cramer sounded off against all those companies complaining a strong U.S. dollar ruined their quarterly results. Cramer said it's time to throw out the whiners and buy the winners at a great price.

Who are these whiners? Cramer said Microsoft (MSFT) , a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, turned out to be one of them. The company complained about weak sales in China and Japan, sending shares down 9%. Other whiners included Procter & Gamble (PG) , down 3.4%, FreeportMcMoran (FCX) , down 6% and the biggest whiner of them all, Caterpillar (CAT) , down 7%.

Cramer said he's taking a pass on the "whine bar" and sticking with the winners. If Procter is losing sales, those sales must be going to Action Alerts PLUS holding Unilever (UL) , based in Europe, or Kimberly-Clark (KMB) .

Cramer is also a fan of domestic winners including Apple (AAPL) , another Action Alerts PLUS holding, and Yahoo! (YHOO)  along with Kroger (KR) , Southwest Airlines (LUV) and just about any of the biotech names including Regeneron (REGN) .

More Winners

The markets are driving down the prices of just about every international company as investors attempt to get ahead of real, or perceived, currency problems, Cramer said. But that may create opportunities, if you know where to look.

Case in point: Boeing (BA - Get Report) . Cramer said the demand for planes is still strong and military spending around the globe is on the rise. But with 43% of Boeing's sales stemming from overseas, there's a good chance the company might report some currency weakness. Fortunately, shares of Boeing have already come down ahead of earnings, making an attractive entry point.

Cramer said Pepsico (PEP) also fits this pattern, a strong company with falling shares.

What other companies can be bought? Cramer said he likes those that triumphed over currency issues, companies such as Honeywell (HON) and Starbucks (SBUX) , another Action Alerts PLUS holding. Then there are the stocks that have already "reset" to the new expectations, stocks like Kimberly-Clark.
