Usually all of the great companies on the stock market lose their appeal quickly when investors crowd into the stocks, but Jim Cramer found three fantastic stocks that are off-the-radar for most.
Priceline, Burlington Stores and Broadcom haven't missed on earnings in ages, yet they don't get the street cred they deserve because they aren't as sexy. Most investors consistently write them off , with one foot out the door on the assumption that they will disappoint when they report.
"They are the unsung heroes of this earnings season," the "Mad Money" host said.
Guess what? It didn't happen.
When Zika and Ebola plagued the travel industry, Priceline didn't skip a beat. Airbnb didn't wipe it out, either.
Watch the full segment here:
Burlington Coat Factory used to be one of the most inconsistent clothing retailers out there until it went private and then came public again as Burlington Stores. In its most recent fourth-quarter earnings conference call, the company pointed to home, men's apparel, athletic shoes and handbags as strong divisions.
Those were some of the weakest categories for full-priced retailers, which indicated that Burlington was able to dig up some great closeout deals for consumers.
Semiconductor and communications company Broadcom blew away the numbers when it reported, prompting Wall Street to revise estimates upward.
Broadcom also remains committed to returning cash to shareholders through an almost 2 percent yield and through acquisitions, most recently purchasing Brocade.
"None of these stocks are sexy. None makes you feel like you are on the cusp of social or mobile or cloud or disruptive technologies. Yet, all three offer terrific bargains to both their customers and shareholders," Cramer said.
It all comes down to a simple philosophy for Cramer. Simply reward your customers and shareholders consistently, and you will get more customers and shareholders, which will lead to higher stock prices.
