gave a "horrendous report," last night, said Jim Cramer on his

"RealMoney" radio show Wednesday.

The company totally missed its guidance, and as a result, "a lot of people panicked out of a lot of stocks," he said. People were dumping stocks like

, but now it seems they've come to their senses.

Investors have realized that Alcoa is simply a victim of bad management, he said, urging them not to be put off by the stock.

"It reminds me of

missed its projections, all people cared about was how bad XM was doing, not how well Sirius was doing.

A lot of tech stocks are doing well, Cramer said. Among them, he recommends

Cisco went from $18 to $24, and

has gone from $12 to $18 because "money coming out of staples and oil is going into tech."

Free Trade Foibles

If a major bank offers free trading, "you've got to pay attention if you do any trading at all," said Cramer.

Bank of America

just announced free trading with an account minimum of $25,000, Cramer said. This move took everyone by surprise.

It was "bad luck by me to tell you to buy these

brokers' stocks" yesterday, Cramer said. "I didn't see it coming." The stock is down $2 today because no one expected it, he said, adding that analysts are likely to downgrade the stock within the next couple of days.

Because stocks trade down on downgrades, "if you own the stocks, the decline is not over," he warned.

"Pass the Oxycontin" for the pain, Cramer said. "Take your medicine and move on."

Cramer said he bought

on its way down from $19 to $13 after the company's announcement that it was lowering fees.

He told people to buy at the bottom, and "if you did that, you ended up making pretty good money," Cramer said.

But "I totally underestimated how much Wall Street would turn on Ameritrade," he iterated.

"Arena is a good stock to own because it will be bought," and at about $14, there's a lot of upside, Cramer said.

Under Michael Eisner, management was bad, Cramer said. But Robert Iger, "the guy who runs it now, is starting to a lot of right things." Plus, now that gas prices are lower, more people will be visiting Disneyland and Disney World, Cramer said.

Cisco has crushed Nortel and

"Nortel and Lucent should be avoided at all costs," and Cramer believes that they must be sold because they're not going any higher.
