NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Once you connect the dots, the picture is not only worth a thousand words, it's worth thousands of dollars as well," Jim Cramer said on his "Mad Money" TV show Wednesday. While pundits will likely use today's weakness to try and scare investors out of the market, Cramer said investors need to be thinking, "What should I buy next?" Cramer said in order to see what's working, investors need only to connect the dots. He said there's been incredible strength in Apple ( AAPL), Palm ( PALM) and Research In Motion ( RIMM) that underscore his mobile Internet thesis. Yet despite huge gains in all of these names, Cramer said investors are still not seeing the pattern.
Still Bullish on Natural GasIn the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Murray Gerber, chairman and CEO of EQT Corp ( EQT), to get yet another read on the state of the natural gas industry amid record low prices for the fuel. Gerber said first that investors shouldn't judge the company's outlook for natural gas based on its current hedging philosophy. He said his company is very bullish on the fuel, despite some hedging that dates back many years. Gerber credited his company's success and extremely low cost of production to both his team and new technology, most of which is less than five years old. He said with new horizontal air drilling technology, the natural gas industry can now supply the country's energy needs for 120 years. Natural gas, he said, could reduce foreign imports of oil by 75%. Looking towards the future, Gerber said that with even newer technologies, the potential exists to extract even more gas from the nation's huge shale field reserves. There's enough gas to power the U.S. for a long, long time, he concluded. Cramer said that Gerber is a winner, EQT is a winner and natural gas is definitely a winner.
New IPOIn the "Know Your IPO" segment, Cramer featured another company about to go public. He said that Select Medical Holdings, which may come public as early as Thursday under the symbol "SEM," should be on investors' radar. Cramer said Select Medical is a real company with real earnings. The company was once public, back in 2001, before being taken private in 2005. The company is once again looking to come public, this time with plans to raise $400 million on 33.4 million shares that are expected to price between $11 and $13 a share. Select Medical operates 92 specialty acute-care hospital and 948 outpatient rehab facilities throughout the country. Cramer said investors can think of the company as a hospital without the loss-leading emergency room. He said Select Medical instead focuses on vital, and more lucrative, procedures that aren't likely to be cut with health care reforms. Cramer said at $13 a share, Select Medical is expensive, so he advised investors to consider the IPO at $13 a share, but to take a pass if the price spikes above $17 a share. He said he would not be a buyer of the deal in the open market, after the IPO.
