) -- "As the quarter winds down, it's time for a time honored tradition on Wall Street," Jim Cramer told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Monday. He said it's time for money managers to try and look a lot more brilliant than they actually are.

Cramer said the underpinnings of the market have clearly tilted from the bears to the bulls in recent weeks, especially on the heels of China announcing today that they will revalue their currency. However Cramer still cautioned individual investors that it's not time to load up on stocks.

Instead, Cramer said he'd still use any rallies like today to lighten up on losing stocks, and buy more of the winners on weakness. He also said that the smart money will be on the big money managers, who are now finding themselves on the losing side of the trade, looking to make up for lost time before the quarter ends.

Cramer identified five stocks that he said will be the natural choice for money mangers to pile into between now and the end of the month. He said these stocks are up big, both for the quarter and for the year.

First on the list was Internet video giant


(AKAM) - Get Report

. Cramer said shares of Akamai are up 44% for the quarter and 79% for the year and is a logical choice for money managers looking for a quick gain. Next on the list,



. Cramer said this stock is up 39% for the quarter and 66% for the year and is another logical technology play.

Also on the list,



. This barely followed stock is up 26% on the quarter, and 17% on the year, but with solid subscriber gains is also a great choice for money managers, said Cramer. He also recommended

(CRM) - Get Report

, which is only up 28% on the year despite a 29% gain for the quarter. Salesforce is at its 52-week high, however.

Finally, Cramer recommended

Pioneer Natural Resources

(PXD) - Get Report

, which is up 26% for the quarter and 44% on the year.

Other honorable mentions includes some of Cramer's C.A.N.D.I.E.S. stocks highlighted last week, mainly


(NFLX) - Get Report


Chipotle Mexican Grill

(CMG) - Get Report


Deckers Outdoor

(DECK) - Get Report


Stick with these names, and Cramer said home gamers can enjoy a nice little return as the big money tries to show its shareholders just how smart they really are.

IPO Lacks Substance

In the "Know Your IPO" segment, Cramer highlighted Tesla Motors, the much anticipated electric car maker set to come public soon under the ticker "TSLA." Cramer said this IPO is all sizzle and no steak, and while he recommends getting in on the IPO if possible, he'd be a seller of the stock on its first day of trading.

Cramer said there's no doubt Tesla's IPO will be huge, with the seduction of all electric vehicles on everyone's wishlist. The company plans to offer 11.1 million shares between $14 and $16 a share, which will make Tesla a $1.5 billion company.

But after the seemingly underpriced IPO, Cramer said there's not much going on at Tesla. The company has only sold 1,063 cars to date, continues to lose money, and its promised $50,000 sedan isn't expected until 2012.

Beyond that, Cramer said electric cars will face steep competition between now and 2012, and the possibility of the federal tax credit for electric vehicles going away is also a real possibility.

Cramer likened the Tesla IPO to that of battery maker

A123 Systems

( AONE), which also had a hot, electric inspired IPO, only to fizzle out and disappoint ever since.

Yuan-Appreciation Winners

With the Chinese announcing today that they will allow their currency to appreciate against the dollar, Cramer told viewers not to pile onto the obvious Chinese plays. He said the real money will be made in the stocks that haven't already ramped up on the news.

Cramer said the obvious choices, like mining and minerals stocks like


( JOYG),

Joy Global

( JOYG),


(FCX) - Get Report


BHP Billiton

(BHP) - Get Report

, have already run up on the welcome Chinese news, but there are other ways to play.

Cramer recommended both


(BIDU) - Get Report



(AAPL) - Get Report

, a stock which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS, as two stocks that do well as the Chinese middle class does well.

Cramer also recommended derivative plays

Cirrus Logic

(CRUS) - Get Report


Marvell Technology

(MRVL) - Get Report

and also



, all of which have Chinese exposure.

In retail, Cramer gave the nod to



, which has 37 stores in China,


(NKE) - Get Report

, which may be problematic in the short term but longer term is expanding from 300 to 500 cities in China, and auctioneer


(BID) - Get Report

TST Recommends


Finally, Cramer recommended

Yum! Brands

(YUM) - Get Report

, which derives 30% of its sales from China with a 37% growth rate, and

Wynn Resorts

(WYNN) - Get Report

, which derives almost two thirds of its revenues from its Macau casinos.

Mad Mail

Cramer told a viewer not to double down on


(GOOG) - Get Report

after it left China, and he's also not a fan of


, which he called overvalued for what you get.

Cramer told another viewer that he's waiting for a bottom in

Gilead Sciences

(GILD) - Get Report

, but is not seeing it. He said that many feel the company's acquisition is dilutive to shareholders, and he agrees.

Cramer told a third viewer that he's still a fan of

TEVA Pharmaceuticals

(TEVA) - Get Report

, a stock which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS. He said the company is growing at 12% to 14% a year, and is selling at a low market multiple.

When asked about

Dreamworks Animation


, a stock Cramer previously recommended, Cramer said "I got this one wrong." He said Dreamworks is a lot more vulnerable than he expected and he'd sell into any strength.

Finally, when asked about


(MTW) - Get Report

, Cramer said he's not a fan and would swap out of it in favor of


( JOYG).
