NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- This market is leaving a bad taste in the mouths of many investors, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Tuesday as he recapped the best and worst performers of the first quarter.
On the plus side, there were several standout takeovers such as Hospira (HSP) and Kraft Foods (KRFT), two deals made by very smart acquirers. Then there was Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), up 34% over the past three months, as the need to connect billions of new devices to the Internet led that company higher. First Solar (FSLR) was also a big winner on the news it's spinning off a yield-bearing entity.
But there were the many stocks stuck in the mud, unable to get out of their own way. Sandisk (SNDK) was among the worst performers, as was Ensco (ESV) and Diamond Offshore (DO) in the oil patch, and Ralph Lauren (RL) and Fossil (FOSL) among the retailers with the biggest currency headwinds.Must Read: 5 Worn Out Apparel Stocks to Clear out of Your Portfolio Right Now This article is being updated.
