Cramer helps you spot stocks the market may have left behind, with Steve Sadove, Saks chairman/CEO.

"The market can be pretty darned stupid sometimes," Cramer said Tuesday. "And that’s a good thing, too, because when the market’s dumb, it gives us some terrific opportunities."

Take Saks , for example. The department store operator reported a narrower-than-expected quarterly loss and forecast same-store sales growth for the rest of the year, but said it is cautious about falling sales. Overall, Cramer thinks it was a strong quarter.

"We know that we have a Dickensian, bar-bell economy right now in America," Cramer said. "High-end retailers are thriving as the rich get richer and the low-end is also working, as everybody else trades down, while the middle just gets squeezed."
