Jim Cramer's Portfolios of the Week

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

Updated from 7:01 a.m. EDT

Jim Cramer has expressed amazement this week at what has been going on with commodity stocks. He has pointed out that the run lower has been caused by forced selling from hedge funds, the absence of China and the lack of dividends paid out by many of the companies in the sector.

Despite the demise in the commodities complex, Cramer has been all over the run in retail stocks and the positive effect of lower gasoline prices on the sector. No matter where the wild moves in the market are happening, Cramer is always on top of it. Don't miss out on his advice -- it can be crucial to making money in the markets.

Recently, Cramer found opportunity in the short handbook with stocks such as

General Motors

(GM) - Get General Motors Company (GM) Report

; bank stocks, such as


(C) - Get Citigroup Inc. Report

; and recession stocks. 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 RealMoney blog posts (these blog post links require a RealMoney subscription).
