    Indeed that maybe true in many cases but I am just presenting the options available to him. The rest is up to his own evaluation and discretion.

    I'd avoid BRIC too. There's plenty of underrated stocks in the US, without having to expose yourself to risk of massive fraud, differing accounting standards, laws, cultural customs etc that come with investing in other countries.

    Lightning round. Asked Cramer about hyper speculative MAPP and whether he thought it would get approval this month for their oral inhaler migraine medication.

    I like where BAC is headed. Can't wait for the stress test results to come out.

    APL is a BEAST!

    Bought some more shares today and they were already up 1+% when the market closed.

    I swear, we've seen Apple have record-smashing profits year after year, but I think this year is going to be on a whole different level as they totally dominate the tablet market, release the new TV set, and launch the iPhone 5.

    Seriously guys, pick up your AAPL shares while they're still cheap.

    Finally saved up 6 mo. emergency funds... looking to get back into investing....

    so any recommendations or stocks to look for?

    my general qualifications/preferences:

    1) must be making $$ -- got bit on HDY
    2) i really really like blue chip / dividends
    3) i'm interested in the banks or even cloud computing tech... but i feel like banks are kinda a tossup right now... however, i wouldn't mind sinking a few coins into BAC...
    3) i'm looking at very long-term investments...

    My current portfolio (i've been adding funds back in '08 & '10 when the market dipped (>:] ) :
    XOM, INTC, KO, JNJ, PG, CVX, C, HDY

    I thought stress tests were supposed to be released Thurs, why'd it release early?
