Did you miss Tuesday night's "Mad Money" on CNBC? If so, here are some of Jim Cramer's top takeaways.
After last year's remarkable run, many of the market's leaders have already given us a lot, Cramer told viewers. Is it too much to ask them for more? Cramer dove into the top five Dow Jones Industrial Average winners to find out.
Topping the list was Caterpillar (CAT) , which rose 36% in 2016. Cat rallied on innovation and supply chain management, which put the company more in control of its own destiny. But Cramer said given a skyrocketing dollar, this stock has given all it can for now.
Next was UnitedHealth Group (UNH) , also up 36% last year. With this company poised to be a big influencer in what replaces Obamacare, Cramer said, he's betting on a two-year run for this health-care provider.
Chevron (CVX) was also up big in 2016, 31% to be exact. But Cramer said that this company trades in lockstep with oil and he's not betting on a rally any time soon.
Finally, there's Goldman Sachs (GS) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) . Cramer said Goldman can continue roaring as deregulation will allow this company to flourish. As for JPMorgan, Cramer said this is his favorite among the five, as higher interest rates will boost its earnings significantly.
What About the S&P Winners?
Making it to the Super Bowl of stocks two years in a row is very tough, Cramer told viewers, as he looked at some of the biggest S&P 500 winners from last year to see which ones might have what it takes to at least have a winning season in 2017.
Chipmaker Nvidia (NVDA) topped the winners list in 2016 and Cramer said this stock is not done going higher, even though it trades at 37 times earnings. The company continues to fire on all cylinders and is playing in all of the hottest markets, including data centers, artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
Cramer was also bullish on Applied Materials (AMAT) , the semiconductor equipment maker that will make these next-generation chips.
ONEOK (OKE) rallied 133% last year and Cramer said this "back from the dead" oil and gas provider is also likely to be a winner in 2017. Cramer also gave the nod to Halliburton (HAL) , his favorite among the oil service names.
Cramer was bearish on on Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) , a stock which he said needs more global growth to thrive.
