Everyone needs batteries, people are worried about their lawn in the summer, and personal grooming never stops, Jim Cramer said on his
"RealMoney" radio show Monday. Investors should consider buying these companies in tough economic times, because batteries, lawn and grooming products are products people always buy. This is why market players thought Spectrum Brands ( SPC), a consumer products company was a hiding place, Cramer said. However, the brands that Spectrum offers are not best of breed, he said emphasizing that people should not buy into anything other than best-of-breed companies for these products. For personal grooming, Cramer recommended looking at Procter & Gamble ( PG) and lawn he suggested Scotts Miracle-Gro ( SMG). While the headline from this morning's Ad Age , which reads "Interpublic Stock Plunges, Stoking Acquisition Chatter," might make people want to buy Interpublic Group of Companies ( IPG), Cramer said he would avoid the stock as it is too dangerous. The only thing the company has going for it right now is that its stock has come down, he said. To see the most recent edition of The RealMoney Radio Recap in its entirety, please click here.
