RealMoney Radio: Buyback Bliss

Cramer says this is the time to get a piece of a company that's hanging in with the market.

Whenever there is a decline in the market, two types of sellers emerge, Cramer told listeners of his

"RealMoney" radio show Thursday.

There are the panicked sellers who need to raise cash. The market is full of these types of sellers right now, Cramer said.

The second type of seller is the company itself, which is issuing the stock you may be buying, he said.

Five companies that are currently buying back their own stock are

These companies are hanging in, Cramer said. If you are looking for shelter, look into companies that are buying back their own stock. If you've got cash, this is a great opportunity, he said. And remember panic is not a good thing, he said. It is not a way to make money in the short or long term.
