Like everyone else around the country, “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer is dreaming about how he’d spend the winnings. But unlike many, who may be thinking of that dream vacation, sports car or mansion, Cramer has set his sights on stocks—which should come as no surprise.

So how would Cramer invest his $640 million dollars?
