Dear Jim: My wife, 4-year-old son and I watch your show every night. I have read all of your books. I am actually thinking about building a shrine in my house for you with your picture next to a bottle of Johnnie Walker on a linoleum floor. I would like for you to go over the quarterly report of Yamana Gold on your show. I believe that this stock reported good numbers. Why hasn’t the stock seen an upside from this? --J.J., Edith and Justin

Cramer says: Gold stocks don’t necessarily trade on earnings if the commodity is plummeting. But keep buying Yamana, he says. “I think it’s very important that everyone has a gold stock in their portfolio.”

Dear Jim: I think you are beautiful. And, while you don't need makeup to look that way, many of us do. I was wondering, in the spirit of your "I Stand Corrected" series, if you are still bearish on Bare Escentuals . Its first quarter profit was up 40%, and it has almost every major cosmetic line trying to copy its mineral concept. It's also up significantly from its October debut. So, do you stand corrected or are you still bearish on BARE? --Kacey

Cramer says: “Not only do I stand corrected, I feel like an idiot on this one.” Cramer should have seen this coming and he apologizes for getting it wrong.

Dear Jim: In Tokyo recently, I observed a one-and-a-half to two-hour queue all day, every day (even when raining) to buy Krispy Kreme donuts. It was unbelievable and on purchase they walked away with boxes and boxes. Does KKD now have their house in order enough to play this international expansion, or should I be looking into investing in Japanese health care or dental instead? --Jon

Cramer says: "We haven’t lost any money but we haven’t made any money.” He would stay away from Krispy Kreme.
