NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- It's amazing what happens when the markets stop fretting about Greece and start letting the good stocks shine, Jim Cramer told his Mad Money viewers Monday. Investors can choose from a whole menu of great stocks with long-term growth potential.
Cramer was bullish on the classic growth names, stocks like Walt Disney (DIS), Nike (NKE) and Stabucks (SBUX), a stock which he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, all of which are doing quite well.
Then there are the banks, which profit from rising interest rates. Wells Fargo (WFC), another Action Alerts PLUS name, and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) remained Cramer's favs among that group. He was also bullish on tech names with long-term growth stories like Skyworks Solutions (SWKS).
Cramer saw strength in biotech and regular tech, with names like Celgene (CELG) and Apple (AAPL), also an Action Alerts PLUS holding, getting the nod. Still other stocks included international names like Honeywell (HON), as well as consumer packaged goods and even housing-related names like Home Depot (HD).
Finally, Cramer told viewers to also be on the lookout for more mergers and acquisitions, as the deals keep on coming on almost a daily basis.
Stick with UnitedHealth
With the Federal Reserve set to begin raising interest rates any time now, investors need to stick with secular growth stocks, like the health care cost containment companies. The best of breed player in that group is UnitedHealth Group (UNH).
In addition to being our nation's largest health care provider, UnitedHealth has Optus, its "secret sauce" that includes a pharmacy benefit manager and services company that is expected to contribute up to 40% of UnitedHealth's total earnings in the coming years. UnitedHealth already puts up huge numbers, but the company is still expected to grow between 9% and 12% a year. Shares of UnitedHealth trade for 17 times earnings, a slight premium to its peers, but Cramer said it deserves that premium and more given its best of breed status and the fact its shares are up 86% over just the past two years.
