NEW YORK (
) -- When the richest men in the world are buying into the stock market, you should be, too, Jim Cramer told
viewers Tuesday. Cramer said while some analysts may be encouraging investors to sell, those in the know are signaling it's time to buy, buy, buy.
Cramer said he's always been an advocate of buying on weakness, which is why he was telling investors to buy into Monday's big selloff. That was good advice again today, he said, because the market quickly snapped back and resumed rally mode. But more important than the markets are what the big boys are doing, said Cramer.
Case in point: Larry Ellison, Michael Dell and John Malone.
Cramer said that Ellison, founder of
, saw huge value in the market when he opted to buy
( APKT), a terrific tech company whose stock has been down on its luck of late.
Then there's Michael Dell, CEO of
, who also saw value in his company -- so much so that he was able to whip up a $24.4 billion deal to take the company private.
Finally, there's billionaire John Malone of
, who is spending $12 billion to take a stake in
, giving his media empire huge exposure to the European market for a steal.
Cramer said all three of these business titans are signaling that now's the time to take the plunge into this very inexpensive stock market. "Don't bother waiting," said Cramer. Deals like these are likely to continue.
Off The Charts
In the "Off The Charts" segment, Cramer went head to head with colleague Bob Lang over the charts of four tech titans,
, or FANG.
Lang noted that while Facebook's daily chart shows volatility, with a floor at $28 and a ceiling at $32, he'd be a buyer at the $28 level. This view was confirmed by Facebook's weekly chart, which displayed a bullish cup-and-handle pattern.
Lang said Amazon's daily chart may look stalled, with the MACD momentum indicator also signaling sell, but looking at a weekly chart tells a different story, with the MACD signaling a buy. Lang felt any pullback in Amazon will be brief and he'd be a buyer.
Both Netflix and Google displayed similar bullish patterns. Netflix' daily chart displayed a bullish pennant pattern, while Google's just made a new all-time high.
Cramer said he was in agreement with Lang's analysis, saying investors need to forget about Dell and go where the action is, and that's with "FANG."
In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Sandy Cutler, chairman and CEO of
, which just beat earnings expectations by 4 cents a share. Cramer currently owns shares of Eaton for his charitable trust,
Action Alerts PLUS.
Cutler updated investors on Eaton's acquisition with Cooper Industries, which closed in November. He said the combined company is now a "more capable supplier" to its customers and offers a powerful package of power management solutions. Eaton is now well-positioned, said Cutler, and the synergies are only starting be realized.
Cutler also offered an update on Eaton's business in China. He said the construction equipment business in China has been stalled since the spring of 2011, but January saw the first positive sign of strength for the region. He said while one month does not make a trend, you can't have a trend without that first month.
When asked about America's aging electrical grid in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and the power outage at this year's Super Bowl on Sunday, Cutler said much work needs to be done in that area. The Cooper acquisition now gives Eaton more exposure to the utility industry. Cutler noted that Eaton will primarily be an electrical, hydraulic and aerospace company.
Cramer said Eaton remains a stock that should be in every investor's portfolio.

Bullish on Botox
In the second "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer once spoke with David Pyott, resident and CEO of
, a stock that's up 20% since Cramer last spoke with Pyott in September.
Pyott said Allergan continues to have a lot on tap and the company's future continues to look very bright. He said his company's acquisition of
will be a big boost to Allergan's inhaled migraine treatments, which can potentially be given to 10 times as many patients as its current injected Botox treatments. Pyott noted that any time you can give patients an in-home treatment rather than a hospital stay, costs are lessened and patient convenience is increased.
Pyott was also bullish on Botox's prospects in the treatment of overactive bladder. He said the data continue to be very positive. Also positive, Eyelea, Allergan's treatment for macular degeneration. He said the latest data are signaling Eyelea may be effective for up to three or four months, which would lessen the number of injections a patient must receive from 10 a year to just three or four.
Cramer remained bullish on Allergan.
No Huddle Offense
In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer summed up his many conversations with company executives at this weekend's Super Bowl festivities in New Orleans.
He said not a single exec complained about President Obama or having to pay higher taxes. Instead, they simply expressed relief that Washington is now off the front page of the newpapers.
Cramer said that, overall, corporate execs seemed to be optimistic that economic expansion is underway and the American consumer is alive and well. They were bullish on housing, he noted, and on American oil and gas. The markets needed certainty, he concluded, and now they seem to have gotten it.
