Do you still like Allegheny Technologies (ATI) ?-- Kathy from Wisconsin

Jim Cramer

: I believe Allegheny is a great company and has been a huge beneficiary of the strong aerospace cycle due to strong demand for titanium. However, there is an awful lot of momentum driving the stock up. I have been recommending on my show,

Mad Money

, that people take profits.

Why doesn't General Electric ever go up? The company seems to report good earnings every quarter, but the stock doesn't move.-- Kevin from Indiana

Jim Cramer

: First of all, GE is the parent company of CNBC, which airs my television show

Mad Money

. That said, I believe that it is a very well-managed company.

However, big cap companies just aren't in favor these days; and with a $350 billion market cap, GE is one of the biggest stocks in the market. This means it takes a lot to get the stock to move in any one direction.

In addition, other industrials like


(CAT:NYSE) and


(BA:NYSE) are currently drawing more attention from investors due to their more concentrated exposure to high-growth markets.
