RealMoney Radio: What's Good for Google

Cramer says the search engine can buy YouTube and not get hurt.

"Don't stocks go down when they decide to make acquisitions?" Jim Cramer asked on his

"RealMoney" radio show Monday.

"Only

Google

(GOOG) - Get Alphabet Inc. Class C Report

can buy

YouTube

and not get hurt," he said. Besides Google, "any other company would risk demolishing its own stock" Cramer said.

With a ton of pages, YouTube is an exciting site with something to entertain yourself every single day, he said, adding, "For me, I've got about seven minutes to be entertained each day."

Yahoo!

, which Cramer owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS, may have been able to buy the company, but now says it can't pull it off because it doesn't seem like its management is involved or engaged.

With "a change in management there, they probably could have bought YouTube."

Companies such as

CBS

TheStreet Recommends

(CBS) - Get CBS Corporation Class B Report

and

Viacom

(VIA.B)

couldn't do it because "none of their sites have the infrastructure or the traffic to drive people," Cramer said.

Also, Google is "not embarrassed at buying a younger person's company for big money because Google is a young company with big money," he said.
