Anytime the market is up significantly, the way to make money is by being aggressive, Jim Cramer told viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Wednesday.

Because the market was "en fuego" Wednesday, Cramer said he believes that people should start making trades.

In particular, Cramer advised his viewers to make a trade on

Research In Motion

( RIMM).

The Waterloo, Ontario-based company is involved in the design, manufacture and marketing of wireless products for the mobile-communications market. Many people may know the company best as the maker of the BlackBerry device.

RIM shot up to $90 and reached its peak in March, and the stock has been down since then, Cramer said, adding that this stock is now beckoning.

After two horrible quarters, the company is set to report its fiscal year 2007 first quarter on June 29, he said. Research In Motion is not an investment, but a trade because it is like a rollercoaster, Cramer emphasized.

RIM has a new 8700 BlackBerry model, which is currently offered by


, but in the summer, this model will be offered by

as well.

When that happens, sales will soar, Cramer said.

Right now there is a lot of negativity toward RIM, and even though it is risky to bet on a stock before the end of a quarter, Cramer believes that the company will report better-than-expected earnings.

Although the company has seen abrupt and extreme changes, Cramer believes that it can't go much lower.

Cramer believes that when the 8700 model starts appearing in Verizon stores, the stock will bounce back. That's when it's time to sell the stock, he says.

Strong Medicine

Conglomerates such as

General Electric

(GE) - Get General Electric Company Report



(SI) - Get Silvergate Capital Corporation Class A Report

have been buying similar-looking medical-equipment companies, Cramer said.

In the last year, there has been $60 billion in acquisitions in this space, and the reason for buying is demographics, Cramer said. America is aging rapidly, and Americans will do anything to look younger.

Because these big conglomerates are buying medical-device companies, Cramer believes that there's money to be made here. He advised viewers to start looking for the next medical-equipment play.

Earlier in June,

Intermagnetics General

( IMGC) merged with

Philips Electronics

(PHG) - Get Koninklijke Philips N.V. NY Registry Shares Report


In addition, Siemens acquired

Diagnostic Products

( DP).

Market players could have made money from both acquisitions, Cramer said. Speculating about the next takeover, Cramer offered three candidates that have potential to be taken over and are buys.

First, Cramer recommended Conshohocken, Penn.-based

Viasys Healthcare

( VAS), which develops medical devices, instruments, and medical and surgical products worldwide.

Cramer said to focus on the company's orthopedic business and its lung business, which he called very sophisticated. Cramer believes that Viasys is a takeover target for a company that wants lung exposure.

In addition, the fact that the company has cash and low debt makes it OK to speculate on it.

The next company, New Jersey-based

Vital Signs

( VITL), is a great anesthetic and respiratory products maker and is sitting on a hoard of cash, Cramer said.

Sirona Dental


, the third and last company Cramer recommended, merged with

Schick Technologies

on Tuesday.

The bottom line, said Cramer, is that big conglomerates want to make acquisitions in diagnostics companies; these three could be great takeover candidates, he said.

Am I Diversified?

The first caller to play "Am I Diversified?" owned the following five stocks:

Cincinnati Bell

(CBB) - Get Cincinnati Bell Inc. Report





BHP Billiton

(BHP) - Get BHP Group Limited American Depositary Shares (Each representing two) Report



( LIFC) and


(DSS) - Get DSS Inc. Report


Cramer said that although the caller was diversified, his portfolio was awful.

He advised the caller to get rid of CBB and go into

Deutsche Telekom

( DT). He also recommended getting into

Johnson & Johnson

(JNJ) - Get Johnson & Johnson Report

instead of LifeCell and


(QCOM) - Get QUALCOMM Incorporated Report

, which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS, instead of Quantum.

The next caller owned

Dow Chemical

(DOW) - Get Dow Inc. Report


Home Depot

(HD) - Get Home Depot Inc. (The) Report



(COP) - Get ConocoPhillips Report


Seagate Technology

(SXT) - Get Sensient Technologies Corporation Report


EuroZinc Mining

(EZM) - Get WisdomTree U.S. MidCap Fund Report


Cramer blessed the portfolio and called it diversified. Although Cramer said he is not a fan of EuroZinc, he said it was all right to have one speculative stock.

The last caller owned


(MO) - Get Altria Group Inc. Report


Dow Chemical

(DOW) - Get Dow Inc. Report



(GOOG) - Get Alphabet Inc. Report



( MOT) and

Palomar Medical Technologies

( PMTI).

Cramer said the caller did not have a diversified portfolio because Google and Motorola are both techs.

Saying that no pairs are allowed, he advised the caller to get out of Google and swap into a financial.

In the "Mad Mail" segment, Cramer told a viewer that it's the right time to get back into

Nektar Therapeutics

(NKTR) - Get Nektar Therapeutics Report

, because the hype about its Exubera inhaled-insulin product is about to begin.

He told another viewer that although




sales are down 2%, the setup to get into this company is perfect because nobody expects anything from it.

That's when you should strike, said Cramer.
