tv   Mad Money  CNBC  April 11, 2012 6:00pm-7:00pm EDT

6:00 pm
see you tomorrow for squawk on the street. mast money. "mad money" with jim cramer starts now. welcome to my world. you need to get in the game. go out of the business and he's nuts! they're nuts! they know nothing! i always like to say, there's a bull market somewhere. "mad money," you can't afford to miss it. welcome. i want to make friends, just trying to make you a little money. my job is not just to entertain, but to educate you. call me. have you noticed when stocks go down, we accept the climate? stocks go higher, you seem p puzzled. we seem to come up with a negative reason why they shouldn't. have you ever wondered how upside down that is? with the market down, s&p
6:01 pm
rising .74%, nasdaq climbing, i need to spend some time explaining how so many people i speak to in the media see things negatively. barely makes any sense or has no rigor to it. people making money and often forces your hand into selling, sell, sell, sell, by convincing you that what's good is actually bad. or at least not positive. the best example where stocks go up for false reasons but down on rationality. exhibit a, sherwin williams. on monday, announced a fantastic quarter. real shocker. seems inexplicable given how negative people were. how could a paint company do well when housing market has bottomed? the answer? it can't be because things are
6:02 pm
actually getting better, right? so, what excuse can the permanent step logically explain the 20% increase in sales? it was the weather. that's right. the overly skeptical, notice i didn't say bearish. i think it's a mind set. within seconds, determined that the quarter was weathery and there the stock shouldn't be up. because now going forward, everyone in april, may and june will have taken advantage of the good weather and done their painting already. finished. sure enough, the stock did go lower into the selloff yesterday. had to be darker than the past and there's no way sales could have accelerated on their own, rig right? funny thing happened though to unravel this theory. and believe me, it was just a theory. one so to speak that was too good to check out.
6:03 pm
turn rs out much of the paint they sold was for interiors, not exteriors. that's right, the weather didn't boost the sales, unless you believe that when the sun comes out, it makes you itchy to paint their living room. explained after the skeptics have been able to drive the stock down. they did their damage. people sold when they should have been buying. today, sherwin williams rallied an astounding $5.53. putting the uber skeptics that kept you from getting that gain. they will never apologize. they don't think they did anything wrong. i beg to disagree. from skepticism to morph into cynicism, if not, outright mealism where the only thing matters is the ability to interpret the negative. maybe we're there and these talking heads are taking cue
6:04 pm
from a novel. they only want to destroy your capital. you see this kind of logical with the power company -- and they would have been much lower from the weather had been warmer. the only group with strong, pent up demand as well as consumers, surely, it must be the weather that's driving the numbers up. therefore, the good news merely stealing sales that would occurred in late spring and thus revealing shortfalls. qed, better start selling fast. i say let's forget this twisted sister logic and deal with some fact about the strength of retail. every time vf corp. went high, you've got to sale the stock. why? because part of it is in north face and you buy north face when it's cold, so we should except
6:05 pm
it. it happens. companies can do well. there is natural demand and improving demand. people thought pbh through january, then business improoued in february. got better still in march. that's pretty much what i'm hearing about retail in general. the word on the street was that january sales were stronger because of the weather. look out, february, you're stals have been stolen. then numbers were fantastic. fine weather larceny. and easter calendar, lent. this mind set isn't restricted to retail. in the last 24 hours, we got great number frs alcoa. rarely, have i seen so much chatter about earnings. i read a bunch of reports saying it was a one-time only inventory. that businesses just needed to refill their glasses. in reality, quarters turned from a dramatic role, natural grass
6:06 pm
and fixed input in glass and a rise in actual glass demand. what was that much better than expected number? i heard explained by productivity gains. did any of these skeptics bother to listen to the conference call? both airbus and boeing are buying alum numb hand over fist. why? want to improve your fuel economy and need aluminum. lightweight and strong. whatever stock goes down, what's the reason? because business is bad. for several days, we saw a decline in bank stocks because they're supposed to have bad earnings. bank stocks now or they wouldn't be going down. doesn't it make sense? banks going up today. what gives? must be short covering. bulls that don't know jack. who thinks that banks can't possibly make money, really think that? mark my words. know why they're going up? because they should.
6:07 pm
because business class is better. better than people think. just like alcoa. sherwin williams. sometimes, stocks go up because they deserve to. strategies can get more focused, execution can get better and demand can grow stronger. healthy skepticism of success makes sense, but there is such a thing as unhealthy and we see it in this business. guess what? i'm determined to stamp it out or at least present the other side of the story or give you the facts that are so often too good for these corroded cynics to check out. go to ira in new york. >> hey, jim, it's ira from greenwich village in new york city. >> my sister went there for graduate school. >> i thought this might be a time of question. jim, from listening to you and reading your books and doing
6:08 pm
very well with your advice, thank you, you always emphasize the importance of earnings. i'd love to invest in companies like west innovations or maybe clean energy fuels, but jim, what direction for investing in these kinds of companies given they've had negative earnings for quite some time? >> that's a terrific cash flow story, so they're the eerngs are good. the money's good. clean energy and west port. you believe that over time, they will do great. they have had great runs and i want to be careful. they are not a kind of investable names. brian in pennsylvania. brian? >> hey, jim, want to give you a big westchester university, boo-yah. >> that's where the old eagles used to practice, boo-yah. what's up? >> what i got for you today, travel zoo ticker symbol tzo. had on my radar for a couple of
6:09 pm
months now. i know it's going up for sale. wanted your position on it. >> sell it. i don't know if they can pull it off. sell it today, tomorrow, before the open. just sell it. i probably, that's probably a gray area. i said sell it. how are the bears feeling today? why did the stock gos up? it's obvious, right? they deserve to. "mad money" will be right back. coming up, pipe down? the dmomestic drilling has put america's pipelines in high demand, so why has this high yielder stalled? cramer's exclusive with the ceo of energy transfer partners is next. and later, grow up. after months of a sustained rally, volatility seems to be back. cramer's on the offensive. finding companies with the strongest growth stories for years to come. tonight, jim checks out one retailer that could be on sale.
6:10 pm
is it the right fit for your portfolio? all coming up on "mad money." [ male announcer ] this is the at&t network.
6:11 pm
a living, breathing intelligence helping business, do more business. in here, opportunities are created and protected. gonna need more wool! demand is instantly recognized and securely acted on across the company. around the world. turning a new trend, into a global phenomenon. it's the at&t network -- securing a world of new opportunities. ♪ has been because of the teachers and the education that i had. they're just part of who i am. she convinced me that there was no limit to what we could learn. i don't think i'd be here today had i not had a wonderful science teacher.
6:12 pm
a teacher can make a huge difference in a child's life. he would never give up on any of us. thank you dr. newfield. you had a big impact on me.
6:13 pm
sure you had a good day today. doesn't mean you can go throw caution to the weekend. after the beating we've taken, it's worth remembering your portfolio needs to play defense. we've got the offensive line covered. that's what all the great stocks i've highlighted this week are, but when it comes to defending your waelt, nothing beats a -- in the pipeline aisle of the stock supermarket. cds paying next to nothing. yield and ten-year slipping
6:14 pm
below 2% today, but midstream oil and gas business, their yield rs down right juicy. however, even if after the pullback, some of the pipeline pays have run up too much. then you get unattractive george kostanza shrinkage of the yield. a big transporter of nat gas, 18,000 miles of transportation lines as well as nat gas treating in three facilities. epb is barely up for the year. huge part of the reason, my own travel trust, you can follow long, has been buying the stock. energy transfer partners is out of the favor of wall street big time. i think 2012 could be the year where the unaappreciated stock surprises. sold off its propane division. there's more demand for these
6:15 pm
high priced liquids than ultra gases. energy transfer equity closed on its merger with southern union, which gives low risk, florida transmission business. compa company's trans transforming right before our eyes. wall street's not buying it. don't take it from me. let's check in with kell say warren, ceo of energy transfer partners. welcome back to "mad money." >> thanks, jim. >> what the heck is happening? we're under 2 bucks at natural gas, saying when we're under $2, we've got to sell. aren't you guys hedge, don't the hedges compliment this so we're not in trouble if we own this stock? >> nobody's in trouble if they own our stock. when gas prices go down, what happens is bases, which is the spread from one region to anoth another. that likewise goes down, so for
6:16 pm
the thieves that pipeline companies like us make for your services have been reduced. well, they don't get any worse than this. i thought they would have widened by now. i did. they did not. but still, we've got an incredibly healthy business. we've got 45,000 miles of pipe under the morgan merger is complete. we're the largest pipeline in the united states and we're doing fine. we have not increased our distribution and ial poll jazz to you and the unit holders for that. we are committed to increasing distributions again. >> i'm stunned here. you actually apologized for something. most people come on and their stocks don't do well and they never thought about apologizing. >> that's what we're here to do. people buy our units for two things. they expect distribution, god help anybody distribution would go backwards and they expect
6:17 pm
growth. we've not performed on the second tier of that and for me to expect it's not a reflection of me would be misleading and i can't do that. >> had you held on to that propane division, you might have had to cut your distribution, right? >> you know, i think 2011 as you are aware, was a transformational year for us. we are committed to changing who we are and being 90% natural gas pipelines, which is where we are today is not a good place to be. because we're subject to these and vulnerable to these contractions we're experiencing today. we are committed to increase our movement of heavier hydrocarbons and i think you'll see good things to come from us in the not too distant future. >> curt louder, big backer of your company, deutsche bank, he says we expect the company to fund these acquisitionacquisiti
6:18 pm
dead and equity, meaning you're going to have to issue between 850 billion and $1 million of stock. kurt's a bright guy. he's got to know what he's talking about? >> very bright guy. i've known him a while and he's very, very sharp. number one, he's building in growth that he believes to be transpare transparent. i don't disagree with that. so therefore, i think issueance in a future quarter is inevitable. but it's okay. if we're doing our job correctly, we're put thag equity to work and it's costing us x and then the resulting cash flow coming into that that goes to our unit holders will be x plus a delta factor. so putting the equity to work, if it's the correct economics parameters is an okay thing. >> now to mark west. we've had them on a number of times. nick did that. it's been a huge win. now let's talk about what is
6:19 pm
going to happen with this southern union acquisition. kurt calls it again, maybe we'll stop talking about how high priced it was and start talking about the good things that happened. give us some of the good things that will happen? >> kurt's right. it got pricey and i'm very, very glad that we ended up succeededing. these are wonderful assets. when ever you get involved in an acquisition of this size, it doesn't happen immediately. i will tell you, jim, the, we're seeing more opportunities than we had originally anticipated. because of what's happened with gas prices and because of what's happened with science and the discovery of more natural gas, we've changed the way gas has moved around the country and refunding it. a negative of that is a lot of
6:20 pm
pipeline capacity that was used to move gas from south to north is not being used 100%. in fact, there's a lot of capacity available. you will see an energy transfer attempt, not attempt, we will successfully convert some pipes into alternative services such as the movement of crude. you will see that. >> natural gas takes out two bucks today. the secretary of energy comes out, we got to be using electric cars, he's thinking electricity. president is not that crazy about fossil fuels. is there any future in this country, legitimate, not pie in the sky, for surface vehicles to use natural gas, which would be fabulous for your pipelines? >> absolutely. that's the way this nation should be moving. the problem with your industry is we do not do a good job of telling our story.
6:21 pm
>> it's not that you don't do it. you're terrible. i'm better than you guys and i don't get paid a penny. >> you are, yeah. yeah. sure. i think we're terrible. >> right? i mean, you know, honestly, there's got to be some of that, because it is, it's cleaner. right? it's domestic. abundant. cheaper, 50-1 with diesel. i think that what happens is you guys think it's a no brainer and that's not the way our country works. our country's predicated on spending a will the lot of money to get politicians to agree with you. >> the biggest problem with my industry, the natural gas industry, we're fearest competitors, unlike the electricity business where they kind of coexist nicely with one another. therefore, they do a better job of telling their story. typically, competitors don't like to share information and therefore, we don't get our
6:22 pm
story told as well. >> you're the most candid ceo i've had on in years. i'm a believer. you come on anytime of the week. that's kelsey warren, chairman and ceo of energy transfer partners. stay with cramer. coming up, grow up. after months of a sustained valley, volatility seems to be back. cramer's on the offensive. finding companies with the strongest growth stories for years to come. tonight, jim checks out one retailer that could be on sale. is it the right fit for your portfolio?
6:23 pm
when we got married. i had three kids. and she became the full time mother of three. it was soccer, and ballet, and cheerleading, and baseball. those years were crazy. so, as we go into this next phase, you know, a big part of it for us is that there isn't anything on the schedule.
6:24 pm
6:25 pm
maybe it's not the end of the world after all. i'm always telling you to buy stocks. the reason i repeat myself is because it's hard. think about it. buying into yesterday's horrific sell off, probably the most difficult thing you can do in stocks. you need fortitude to put it in something when everybody else is panicked and acting like it's time to sell. everyone was horrified that i liked it yesterday.
6:26 pm
then it hit today's rebound. stocks are up. it feels a lot safer to pull the trigger. but they're up. you're paying more than you would yesterday for the merchandise and the crazy thing is, you probably feel better about it. only in the stock market do you feel good about play paying a higher price. that's because there's a huge emotional component. if you let, your emotions will almost always lead you astray. buy stocks higher. so if you want to try to make money in the market and not just play with stocks, you need to find your ways. got to get through divorce court. divorce your decision making process from your emotion. trust me, your portfolio doesn't want to hear about your feelings. it wants to be managed. if there was a pill that shed your emotions, you would be a
6:27 pm
heck of a lot better investor. one of the ways to do that is by calmly making a shopping list. that way, you've done your homework and made your decision and cooler heads can prevail not in the heat of battle. and when we get hit with the kind of sell off we had yesterday, it won't make you panic. why? because you, my friend, have a plan. and you've got a shopping list. hence, why i've been devoting this week to making you that list of the best growth stocks for 2012. keeping you up to speed. so far, apple, starbucks and yesterday's edition was chipotle. this is embracing true story of the '80s and '90s. even in the face of the latest european fi areas kos. they'll bounce back faster and harder.
6:28 pm
i'm using household names. using real households. ones you know. ones you've shopped at, been to. the shopping list allows you confidently to buy into weakness. yesterday, during the worst session of the year, it fell 64 cents and today, the stock market bounced back more than two points. even in a difficult week, growth still acts like a coiled spring because this is not 2011. i don't want you to buy any of these stocks. this is a shopping list from the future. the opposite of what you would do. let's go to the next thing on my list and that is cramer faith ross stores, which no one talks about other than me. the king, the king of off price retail. consider the equivalent of the dollar store.
6:29 pm
i shop at dollar tree and love it. i bought $34 worth of candy including beans, cow tails. remember them? now, i just need to find a dentist. ross, which runs both ross dressed for less and dvs discounts have already made us a bundle. stocks give you a 160%. it is up 34% since i highlighted sales better than folding a knife in the eye. doesn't mean you missed it. let me run thu the growth checklist to show you why. first, we always look for companies with potential for multiyears. not six months, six days. multiple years. the future growth is easy to predict even many years down the line. ross has been posting terrific
6:30 pm
numbers lately. the overly skeptical would say that's aided by the warm weather. much of it is because ross has what people want for less than the other guy. the critical thing is that ross has not one, but two concepts at work and both have gone the wrong way. right now, the company has about 1,050 ross dressed for less stores -- even lower price points in seven states. their long-term goal to double their store count by opening another 500 ross locations and 500 more dvs. i think that's more than doable given the tj max and marshall's has about 2,000. it's a better company, stores, it would be -- it's well run. sometimes, i struggle, is that which is better in any type. ross plans to increase by 6 to
6:31 pm
7% annually and one-third of the new stores will be in new markets. if that pays, they've got about a decade before they come close to saturating the market. i'd say ross stores is a classic example of a regional going national story. extremely lucrative moments. mainly a western and southern chain. doesn't have any stores yet in new england. they started moving midwest and are pushing to illinois. they're not in the great plain states, new york. i'll pull my horns when ross is in every state. right now, these stores are pretty scarce where i come from. second, is the n market big enough? absolutely. ross and tgx, 6% market share. 94% out there to get and the oil price space is one of the best performing. third, can ross stay competitive? come on. it's a two-horse race. nobody else has the skill to play the way they do and ross
6:32 pm
stores has developed a system for managing merchandise and packed the clothes away until their back in season. just smart. ross is correct at raising dividend. 27% boost in february and though the .9 might seem like a puny yield, it's only because stocks run so much. fooift. can it expand internationally? that's okay. there's much more room to grow at home. six. is the balance sheet strong enough? seven? is the stock expensive? 16.5 times times, pretty darn cheap. eight. can management execute on the growth plan? yes, yes, and yes. the current ceo has been at the helm since 2006. how much money you can make in
6:33 pm
the stock market. ross is up 3,450% since 1996. talk about a staggering track record. plus, the company has a very deep bench with fabulous merge diazing executives. ross is the kind of retailer where people shop in order to find bargains. works even weaker economy. last, can the company grow its margins so it won't be crushed? in the last quarter, ross saw margin expand by ten basis points. i bet the markets will keep growing. here's the bottom line. every good investor needs a shopping list of stocks to pick up and we're shopping for growth, which makes ross a terrific buy, but only into a pull back. just like you would with retail. got to wait for the next sale. i'm speaking to gary in indiana. gary? >> hey, boo-yah to you, jim, from indiana.
6:34 pm
>> man, i'm loving it there. because they have all the people in indiana have horse sense. >> all right. i got a question about a company that i think they sell tea and i think they could become to tea as starbucks is to coffee and their name is tea bonnet. >> i didn't like that last quarter. i initially was kind of enam enamored, but the more i go to t tea, the more they're selling these teapots you can't make tea in and i find it a problem and didn't like their outlook. sorry. why not go to ken in massachusetts. >> boo-yah to you. >> boo-yah back at you. >> calling about mbwear. global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure. wondering how you feel about them.
6:35 pm
we were really bummed at this. the cfo is really terrific. i can't say that -- i like the parent owners, but i didn't like this. i didn't like it when the cfo leaves. i didn't like it. this was a bummer. makes me like the stock less. i want to go to yavi in kentucky. >> boo-yah, cramer, from kentucky and a big -- >> you're from kentucky. >> okay, well, cramer, i've been hearing about your stocks and i've got a company called health stream incorporated. they're internet based learning technology company that has a lot of innovation, going 20% year over year. >> that does have good growth, i got to hand it to you, but the pressure is local 72 times
6:36 pm
earnings. too expensive for this guy. i have no qualms of buying that one given how hot it's been, but it's too hot for me and i like my eggs kind of running. everybody loves a bargain and that's one of the reasons why i like ross stores. i like the dress and look more, but pay less. they've got growth. they've got execution. they've got cash coming out the -- ross stores, down day, it's for you. stay with cramer. coming up, can you handle the heat? cramer gets you fired up for a sering hot lightening round. plus, how do your stocks stack up in a mystifying market? cramer makes your your portfolio makes the grade on am i diversified. it's very important to understand
6:37 pm
6:38 pm
how math and science kind of makes the world work. in high school, i had a physics teacher by the name of mr. davies. he made physics more than theoretical, he made it real for me. we built a guitar, we did things with electronics and mother boards. that's where the interest in engineering came from. so now, as an engineer, i have a career that speaks to that passion. thank you, mr. davies.

sub disy dided, but there's a big need to subsidize apple's iphones. it's like angling in mercury infested waters. right now, nokia still stands for a company. but i fear that one day soon, it will stand again for the river in finland it's named after. what a sorry state of affairs indeed. stay with cramer. zap technology. arrival. with hertz gold plus rewards, you skip the counters, the lines, and the paperwork. zap. it's our fastest and easiest way to get you into your car. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of hertz.
