The darned thing just won't quit.
Apple keeps going up quietly, pretty much every single week. While there hasn't been much discussion on it these days, Jim Cramer hasn't forgotten about it.
"Apple's endless, inexorable rise is a huge underpinning of this market, and we should never forget that fact," said the "Mad Money" host.
Sure the market can get sidetracked by the noise maker stocks like Alibaba, its sidekick Yahoo, and marvel at the possibilities of Twitter. It could even be fascinated by the rally of Macy's, despite the cut in its forecast. But Apple is always there, quietly raking in the dough.
According to Cramer, the secret to Apple: You don't trade it, you own it.
Considering the fact that Apple is the largest stock in the world with a $650 billion market cap, and yet it is still up 38.5 percent year-to-date. That kind of move normally happens with a company that is being taken over, a biotech or a smaller capitalization. But the biggest company on Earth? That's epic.
