Chrysler Collapse Boosts Biz for Parts Dealers

Cramer waved off criticism of Travelers’ latest quarter during Thursday’s Stop Trading!, saying the stock is a buy. Wall Street seemed to think the company suffered big investment losses, but the Mad Money host disagreed.

Travelers “has the single-best investment record of any insurance company,” Cramer said, “with the possible exception of Chubb.”

He called TRV down $1.50 an “opportunity.”

“This is your chance to get into Travelers,” Cramer said. “The bad news is out, if there really is bad news.”

In autos, Chrysler's bankruptcy is a boon to parts dealers such as AutoZone , Advance Auto Parts and Monro Muffler & Brake . Cramer said all three should trade together, though he prefers MNRO because it's the cheapest of the group right now.

Elsewhere in the market, Praxair and Air Products & Chemicals are “not true cyclicals,” as they are sidestepping most of the US’s economic woes. Both stocks are inexpensive buys, even after this most recent run.
