On Tuesday's "Mad Money" show, Jim Cramer encouraged viewers not to panic or lose their cool in this market.

He said he stills see strength in stocks such as Goldman Sachs ( GS) and JPMorgan Chase ( JPM), both of which he owns for his Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust, as well as in Bank of America ( BAC).

On Wednesday, Goldman Sachs added 13 cents to close at $120.49, JPMorgan lost 63 cents, or 1.9%, to $31.90, and Bank of America closed down 50 cents, or 5.7%, at $8.26.

He said he recently bought more Caterpillar ( CAT) for Action Alerts PLUS based on its strength in China and march sales number.

Caterpillar added $1.06, or 3.4%, at $32.45 on Wednesday.

Cramer said that Halliburton ( HAL) deserved its recent downgrade from JPMorgan because its "fundamentals are still deteriorating."

On Wednesday, Halliburton closed down 9 cents to $19.87.

As for Coca-Cola ( KO), which colleague Rick Bensignor likes, Cramer still prefers Action Alerts PLUS stock Pepsi ( PEP) because it has less international exposure and thus more to gain as the U.S. market recovers.

Coca-Cola lost 16 cents to close at $42.93 on Wednesday, while Pepsi was down $1.37, or 2.8%, at $47.98.

Cramer spoke with Consolidated Edison ( ED) CEO Kevin Burke, who said that New York sales are doing well and that the company has a small carbon footprint. Cramer said that he liked ConEd for it dividend and its forward-thinking.

ConEd closed down 69 cents, or 1.8%, at $37.58 on Wednesday.
At the time of publication, Cramer was long Pepsi, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Caterpillar.
