"Everything we thought would happen in the '90s when we fell in love with the Web is finally starting to happen," Jim Cramer told the audience of his "Mad Money Main Event II," a special version of the TV show filmed before a live audience Wednesday.

Recent strong earnings reports from


(GOOG) - Get Alphabet Inc. Class C Report




demonstrate there is "still a lot of money to be made online."

Google eclipsed Cramer's $350-a-share price target Wednesday, and he unveiled his new price target of $450. That target is based on $9 per share in earnings power and an earnings multiple of 50, he said.

"If you're not in it, I still think you can be in it," he said. If you have owned Google from much lower prices, Cramer said not to be a hog. Take a little off the table and let the rest run, he said.

Google and Yahoo! notwithstanding, Cramer said the hottest part of the Internet is "the Internet behind the Internet," which is e-commerce. The best way to play e-commerce is through the online bill-payment companies, he said. Their business is "white hot."

The two companies that dominate online bill payments are

Online Resources

( ORCC) and

( CKFR). However, Online Resources is "too speculative for me," said Cramer. He would buy CheckFree, he said, which just reported a great quarter.

Cramer also mentioned

Digital Insight

( DGIN) as another play on online bill payments but said Digital Insight has had "sluggish revenue growth" compared with CheckFree and Online Resources.

Only 20% of people are currently using online banking, said Cramer. There's a lot of growth left. It's "time for you to go check-free and to own the stock," he said.

Commenting on

(AMZN) - Get, Inc. Report

, Cramer said the company reported an unimpressive quarter Tuesday.

In response to questions about

(OSTK) - Get, Inc. Report


IACI/Interactive Corp


, Cramer said both were sales.

The Donald

Donald Trump joined Cramer as a special guest on the show to talk about, what else? Real estate. Real estate has "beaten the pants off stocks," over the last five years, Cramer said.

"And, it will continue," said Trump, "as long as interest rates stay down," and he believes they will.

"If they don't stay down, you've got bigger problems than real estate," Trump said.

Cramer asked Trump about stocks' relative underperformance vs. real estate.

"A lot of people aren't feeling great about the economy," Trump said.

Nevertheless, Trump said homebuilding stocks were interesting buys here, adding that those companies are generally well run. From his own experience in high-end residential development in the Los Angeles area, those homes are currently selling as fast as he can build them, Trump said.

Of the companies Trump has worked with on his "Apprentice" TV show, Trump said he likes the stocks of

Procter & Gamble

General Electric

(GE) - Get General Electric Company Report

, the parent of NBC and CNBC. CEO Jeff Immelt and Chairman Bob Wright "are two of the finest business executives I've ever met," he said.

Another company,

General Motors

(GM) - Get General Motors Company Report

, is going to be very interesting, said Trump. "It's either going to be a great one, or it's going to be in trouble. I think the unions are going to be listening to General Motors, and things maybe can work out."

Global Warming Is Hot

Where some see problems, Cramer sees opportunity, and Cramer sees opportunity in global warming. Although there are environmentally and socially responsible investments, Cramer would rather choose investments based on the best opportunities to make money and use the proceeds to do good, he said.

In that vein, Cramer believes it is inevitable there will soon be oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), and "I think that


(NBR) - Get Nabors Industries Ltd. Report

is the driller we'll be using to loot" ANWR, he said.

Nabors also has a strong offshore drilling business, and the company is signing three-year drilling contracts at record-high drilling rates, Cramer said. He believes day rates will be even higher three years from now.

"All this makes Nabors a huge 'mon back* buy," he said. "Stop looking at global warming as the end of the world and start buying some Nabors," said Cramer.

Cramer also likes Norwegian oil companies

Norsk Hydro

( NHY) and



because they already have exposure to the Arctic. Cramer expects Norsk Hydro and Statoil to get big business from the Norwegians and Russians for drilling in the arctic.

Commenting on alternative energy plays, Cramer said

Evergreen Solar

( ESLR) has "had its run." For a solar play, Cramer would recommend

Cypress Semiconductor

(CY) - Get Cypress Semiconductor Corporation Report

, which has a "really good solar division" that it plans to spin off. Additionally, Cramer is bullish on the semiconductor sector, which is Cypress' primary business line.

Cramer would also recommend

as plays on hybrid vehicles.
