Jim Cramer knows that investing can be hard for veterans and active military soldiers. They aren't able to constantly watch stocks and trade on every market movement or use fancy algorithm software the way that short-termers do.
The answer? Don't play their game!
To honor those who have given the highest level of respect for our nation, Cramer focused on three long-term investing themes. These are stocks you can buy and put away, and examine the company reports each quarter—just to do enough homework for your stock positions to be maintained.
First is the natural and organic space. Second is biotech. And third are the social, mobile, cloud and connectivity plays.
"Buy 'em when you can, when the short-termers give you a chance. Given how these hedge funds seem to buy high and sell low as a habit, these longer-term opportunities seem to be an annuity for those with a time horizon that's longer than the mayfly," said the "Mad Money" host
Speaking of long-term plays, looks like Whole Foods got its mojo back again, and Cramer thinks it is just getting started.
He is serious about this recommendation, too, so even if you call it "Whole Paychecks" and would rather shop at your local sausage specialty store, Cramer thinks it is a good idea to add this stock to your portfolio anyway.
Never write off a company with a great concept and terrific management, warned Cramer. Last year, Whole Foods was getting pounded by the competition, as investors feared that it didn't have a strategy to deal with the boom of natural and organic food products in the market. Now it has bounced back better than ever.
"Long-term stocks make sense for our brave men and women fighting overseas who don't have time to check their holdings constantly," said the "Mad Money" host.
Normally, Cramer believes in the buy and do-your-homework method of investing. Meaning, do your homework and keep track of your portfolio before a stock derails. But some stocks need less supervision, such as those with terrific franchises and excellent leadership.
Investors can count on them to deliver. You still have to do your homework, but you don't have to obsess about it every day.
Cramer recommended Disney, noting that it has hired 3,000 veterans since launching its "Heroes Work Here" initiative less than three years ago.
When most people think of Disney, they think of kiddie stuff, such as cartoons and theme parks. In reality, it is a massive media conglomerate with a long-term business plan.
Another veteran friendly company is Clorox. It is one of those companies that is so integrated into daily life, that it has become an American staple. In addition to the iconic American consumer packaged goods companies like Clorox bleach and cleaning products, it also has Glad garbage bags, Hidden Valley salad dressing, Brita water filters, Burt's Bees cosmetics and many others.
Cramer took a closer look with Don Knauss, the CEO of Clorox, who also served as an officer in the Marine Corps. Today, veterans make up 8 percent of Clorox' employee population.
"What we find with veterans is that they have: one, a mission orientation and know how to get the job done. Second, they know how to work in teams—diverse teams across different branches of service. And they've got a work ethic. They actually show up, and showing up is a big deal," Knauss said.
Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the use of products such as Clorox wipes to properly sanitize for Ebola. It's no wonder that this stock has now broken out above $100 per share.
Knauss commented on the impact that the Ebola scare has had on business, stating "we did see a bump in the last four weeks. If you look at October, our wipes business is up over 20 percent. Some of that is the normal cold and flu merchandising we do, but clearly the Ebola scare did frighten people."
When thinking of long-term oil plays, Cramer pointed out that not all oil companies are the same. Not all companies in the oil field are created the same, so be careful and do not trade all of these companies as if they are on the same footing. There is a difference between the shales, budgets and the way that the businesses are run. An Exxon is not the same thing as an EOG or Apache.
For instance, there is a difference between the shales, the budgets and the way that the businesses are run. Major companies like Chevron have drilling budgets that can't just change at the drop of a hat, so the day to day price of oil isn't as important to them, as opposed to EOG which would be concerned with the most recent oil discoveries.
It's apples and oranges, and Cramer wants to warn investors to make sure they know the difference before trading.
In the Lightning Round, Cramer took questions from the elite audience of West Point Academy:
Keryx Biopharma: "Too tough; it is too speculative for me. You've got to handle that one on your own."
Intel: "I think this is a solid stock. It is underrated by most of Wall Street, it's got a great dividend and a great balance sheet and a good CEO. I say yes to that one."
