"We've got a new aerospace cycle coming, and you need to get in," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Thursday.

He said that aerospace will be following in the heels of the current market leaders: technology, oil and the financials.

Cramer made his pronouncement of the coming bull market in aerospace after reading a Page 1 article in the

Wall Street Journal

that reported that


(BA) - Get Boeing Company Report

had been invited to bid for up to 150 new jets by

UAL Corporation


, parent of United Airlines.

Cramer said investors should never invest after reading something in the newspaper, but after a little research, he confirmed the thesis. Cramer said if a troubled airline like United is still able to buy new planes, the bull market in aerospace has arrived.

According to Cramer, Boeing is still unloved on Wall Street, with only three analysts rating the stock a buy, along with 13 holds and three sells. This leaves lots of room for upgrades said Cramer, especially with the touted Paris Air Show beginning on June 16.

Another catalyst working in Boeing's favor, said Cramer, is that its beleaguered 787 aircraft will shortly be in the air. This, coupled with the weaker dollar, which makes the 787 cheaper than its rivals, should generate the long awaited interest for the new model.

Cramer said he's be a buyer of Boeing, or any of these suppliers, on any weakness.

Sell Block

In this Thursday segment, Cramer said it's time to ring the register on

Wind River Systems


, after the company received a takeover bid.

Cramer recommended the stock almost 18 months ago and cited the possibility of a takeover as one of the things he liked about the company. Since that call, the stock has seen a 35% gain.

Cramer also issued a sell on another company about to be acquired,

Axsys Technologies


. Cramer recommended this stock on Feb 13 and shares are up 30% since that call.

Also in the Sell Block, Cramer added

Intuitive Surgical

(ISRG) - Get Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (ISRG) Report

, a high flying biotech company up 82% from its lows in early March.

Cramer said he sees weakened demand for the company's DaVinci surgical robot, with so many hospitals teetering on bankruptcy, crippled by increasing loads of bad debt.

With the company suspending earnigns guidance, Cramer said it's time to ring the register, take profits and move on.

Weathering the Storm

Cramer spoke with

Joy Global


president and CEO Michael Sutherlin about the company's negative outlook for the mining and minerals industry on its conference call earlier today.

Sutherlin said his forecast come from his conservative nature and the fact that he sees the commodities markets declining for another year and a half before beginning to recover. While there are bright spots in the world's economies, the mining industry has huge backlogs to work through first, he said.

Sutherlin said Joy Global has been able to weather the storm be delivering better gross margins through better supply chain management, strong operational excellence programs and cost controls. The company is also seeing better pricing as it begins to work through orders placed in early 2008.

Regarding China, Sutherlin said that country is coming back in a big way, with imports of top commodities at record levels. By comparison, he said, the U.S. market is still working on brining down production levels to meet current demand.

Cramer said he still sees a bright future ahead for Joy Global, given its margins, and despite weak demand domestically.
