Price matters, James Cramer told listeners on his

"RealMoney" radio show Thursday.

Cramer offered up that bit of wisdom after seeing

Syneron Medical


, a medical laser manufacturer, trade down despite great quarterly numbers. The stock ran up in advance of the good news, which means those folks who bought shares after the rally might be mad at Cramer for recommending it.

But don't be mad, said Cramer, let it go. If you see a stock has run up and you think you missed it, then try to catch it after it sells off when the good news finally arrives. So if you want to get into Syneron, now may be a good time.

The same goes for heavy equipment manufacturer


(TEX) - Get Terex Corporation Report

, which was up but not flying after reporting great numbers Wednesday.

"Now that the market's gotten jiggy again, the most jiggy it has been since 1999, it is vital that we re-examine trading disciplines so we don't fall prey to moron-itis as we did last time," Cramer said. "If you bought Terex at $49, you had a good week this week, you most likely took a little off the table for the trade -- good discipline -- and now are able to buy it back on the profit-taking selloff."

Discipline, Cramer added, is the key. "If you used market orders, not limit orders, and you paid up $3 on top of the $3 it was already up from last week because you heard I liked it, you are cursing me," he said.

Cramer does not want his listeners cursing him. He wants you to pay attention to price.

could be hurt by the Vioxx trials because a lot of the evidence looks damaging. The best that could happen is that the stock drifts with a cloud hanging over it. The worst outcome in Cramer's opinion would be the company cutting the dividend and the stock sliding. Cramer says its risk reward is "10 points down and 2 up," which is why he wants you out.
