Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: A Sickening Slide

Cramer says UnitedHealth's pain will end -- he's just not sure when.

"sickening" decline will someday end, but maybe not before bears "over-press" and insiders start buying in size, Jim Cramer said on

CNBC's

"Stop Trading!" segment Monday.

"I have seen this kind of slide only a couple times in my career and you don't know when it's going to turn," Cramer said. "You keep your powder dry and use wide scales," meaning you space out your purchases to lower the potential downside, Cramer said.

UnitedHealth CEO William McGuire remains "money in the bank," though "now suddenly he's perceived as the biggest joker in health care. Sorry, I can't do that," Cramer said.

Cramer reported his praise for

F5 Networks

,

Rackable Systems

(RACK)

and

Akamai Technologies

(AKAM) - Get Free Report

, saying the best Internet infrastructure companies should trade as strongly as

Google

(GOOG) - Get Free Report

, which they supply.

Cramer said F5 "has more momentum than any other stock I follow."

In retail, Cramer positively noted a recent $20 million purchase by investor Bill Stiritz, saying investors can still get the same price but "no one wants to touch it because it's retail."
