Excerpt from Jim's Comments about this portfolio,
from that episode:

Selected Cramer comments from that
Mad Money episode:
The "gloom and doomers" are in trouble... and not just because the Dow Jones Average soared 108 points today. They are in trouble, because I am breaking out of an avalanche that represents the building blocks of America... and the building blocks of America are in motion...

They're saying the building blocks of the economy have picked up. I always talk about how the stock market forecasts a turn in the economy... stocks start moving higher about six months before we get the economic rebound. So I don't think it's just a coincidence that all these great products and the stuff that they're made of... the three building blocks of the economy... turned "up" six months after the market bottomed in March.

That tells me it's a true bottom. And the rally we've had since then is real... not some so-called "bear market rally" where the gains aren't worth taking... It tells me that a recovery is at hand, and it tells me that the bears are cooked... We shouldn't be done feasting on Kodiak Stew anytime soon...
The Bottom Line: You, me, Poly, Ethyl, Jason, Freddy, and Mike Myers... can't let the "doom and gloomers" get in our way, but we can't get greedy either. The real way to defeat the "gloom and doomers"... is to take some money you've made off the table, and go buy yourself something real. Or, of course, as my late Mom, Louise Cramer, would say... Go buy yourself a sweater... make mine Cashmere... and then let the rest ride. Let's laugh at the "doom and gloomers" all the way to the bank.

  *Note:  Because of the so-called "Cramer effect" that sometimes can cause his stock recommendations to pop up in price during the extended-hours sessions and the day after, Jim always recommends that you do your own homework, and wait at least five trading days before considering buying the stock.    That is why we used the 1-week price timing as our first measure.

For these benchmarks, the following measure dates are used:  August 18, September 11, and November 11, 2009.
 

NOTE:  It is very important to realize that, as Jim Cramer states on his show regularly, he will frequently change his recommendation and position on a stock as circumstances change, and he collects more economic, market and specific stock data.  To keep up with his CURRENT position on these stocks, it is recommended that you read the recaps from the show,
