It's time to add some yogurt to your portfolio with
, Jim Cramer told viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Tuesday, citing an article in
that says we're in the middle of a yogurt-eating renaissance.
The newspaper reported that 20 years ago 9.6% of consumers ate yogurt weekly, and now more than 20% eat it at least once a week, Cramer said.
The French company, which also owns Evian and is known as Dannon in the U.S, has seen its dairy-segment growth jump in the U.S. over the last nine months, he added.
"Forget Botox," Cramer said. "People are going to eat yogurt as they age to stay healthy."
Anticipating the health appeal of yogurt, he said that Danone is coming up with new brands to target baby boomers who want to eat it for health benefits.
He told a caller that even though
produces the omega-3 acids that are added to foods including yogurt, the company has been a poor performer. Cramer said he would stay away from Martek.
A viewer whose daughter is allergic to yogurt wanted to know about the soy yogurt market. Cramer said that play would be
He said he likes Dean Foods, but not as much as Danone, which just had a big move upward.
Passage to India
Cramer gave viewers an Internet play that has been "beaten up for no reason," and is what he called a passage to the Indian market.
Take a look at
, said Cramer, who referred to the company as the Indian version of
"It may even be the Indian
," he added.
He said that the stock has come down from $22 this winter to just over $15 now, and that anything in India is on fire.
While India raised interest rates, which should weigh on its stocks, this is a secular growth story, Cramer said.
But the fact that no one pays any attention to Rediff -- basically no analyst research or coverage -- means that it fell hard.
So for $15 a share you get Rediff's 36 million registered users in a country of more than 1 billion people, Cramer said. This shows that not only has the company proven itself in the country, there is a lot of room to expand.
Like a U.S. Internet company, Rediff has a search engine, chat rooms, streaming video and online shopping; and it also makes money through ads and e-commerce, he said. But its growth rate is much faster than a U.S. Internet stock, he said.
In response to a caller who wanted to know about Indian bank stocks in light of the country's recent rate hike, Cramer said he would ring the register and sell half of
Greenberg's Red Lights
columnist Herb Greenberg joined Cramer to take the wind out of the sails of some hot-looking stocks.
Cramer wanted to know why Greenberg wasn't excited about
, which he said reported positive earnings numbers, lowered its costs and made money selling used DVDs.
Greenberg said that even though people are excited by the company's guidance, it didn't raise its pretax guidance. Moreover, he said that the company gave long-term guidance that he called irresponsible because it is too far out in the future.
And even though

seems to be doing well on solar power, Greenberg called it a "retread stock" that has nothing new to offer.
And as for
, Greenberg said analysts believe the company itself is worth $10 a share. The stock currently trades just below $35 a share.
He said that investors are speculating that Rambus will come to a settlement with
, a Korean chipmaker against which Rambus filed a patent infringement suit. This sort of speculation, Greenberg said, is not enough to make him want the stock.
Beer's New King
Is beer really dead? Not if you're
, a brewing stock that has to be bought in Belgium, Cramer said.
InBev is the new king of beers, Cramer said, posting good growth in a world that isn't supposed to like beer anymore.
The company's brands include Stella Artois, Beck's and Bass, and the company has made a killing by not being the king of beers in the U.S., he said.
Instead, Cramer said that InBev is taking market share in the Ukraine, Russia, Korea and South America. The company sees that there's not much growth left for beer in the West, so it's expanding its horizons even into the Chinese market, he added.
