In many ways, CNBC's Jim Cramer finds each trading day in the stock market to be very similar to a good fishing trip.
"This is like fishing, catching a 40-inch edible fish every day, each different from the day before," the "Mad Money" host said about the bounty of high-quality stocks.
Wednesday's catch was the stock of McDonald's. Shares of the fast-food chain broke out to all-time highs on practically no news, closing above $163 a share. Despite its lack of obvious upward drivers, Cramer said the inevitable analyst recommendations would likely help, not hurt.
"This was a gift. I'm calling it a 40-pound striper caught surf casting," Cramer joked.
But Cramer couldn't help but wonder why such different situations are all working for these stocks, so he compiled a list of reasons for why the market is brimming with winners.
