These are the stocks Cramer's been talking about lately.

Updated from 7:03 a.m. EDT

On Wednesday, Jim Cramer signed a new three-year employment contract with

TheStreet.com

, lifting a ton of uncertainty surrounding the "booyah" king. Market players and fans of Cramer can now relax and get back to following one of Wall Street's finest. Recently, Cramer found opportunity in Russian stocks, stocks that work with oil at $110 and stocks ready to play catch-up.

Here are some Cramer highlights from over the past week as aggregated from his "Mad Money" TV show, the "Stop Trading!" segment on

CNBC

and his

blog posts (these blog post links require a

Cramer's Stock Plays Off the Corn Report

: A corn shortage could be on the horizon, and Cramer sees opportunity. In an April 9 blog post, he wrote: "The impact of the president's food-for-oil plan continues with this morning's corn inventory report, which shows a smaller-than-forecast harvest. That means costs going up for everyday food for everyday people, but that's not been an issue as the ethanol boondoggle continues."
