Consumer products companies like Clorox (CLX), PepsiCo (PEP), and Procter & Gamble (PG) have the best stock charts right now, according to Jim Cramer, portfolio manager of Action Alerts PLUS. Cramer said the companies are benefitting from the drop in costs for raw materials and energy, creating the potential for expanding margins. ‘If you saw the dollar at all get weak, these companies’ earnings are going to prove to be far greater, which is why the stocks have run so much,’ explained Cramer. Others stocks with the best charts, in Cramer’s view, are Campbell’s Soup (CPB), Church & Dwight (CHD), Coca Cola (KO), ConAgra (CAG), Dean Foods (DF), Estee lauder (EL), General Mills (GIS), Hersey (HSY), Hormel (HRL), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Kellogg (K), Kimberly Clark (KMB), The J.M. Smucker Company (SJM) and Tyson Foods (TSN). TheStreet's Rhonda Schaffler has details from the NYSE.
