Jim Cramer is the host of CNBC's Mad Money and the chairman of TheStreet.com. Nearly 250,000 people watch his show daily on TV and most of these are ordinary investors trying to understand what’s going on in the market. Cramer’s bullish and bearish stock picks on his show is the starting point for many investments made by these folks.

We compiled the list of technology stocks that have been recommended on Mad Money during the last 30 days.

On July 19, Apple announced financial results for its fiscal 2011 third quarter ended June 25, 2011. The company reported record quarterly revenue of $28.57 billion and record quarterly net profit of $7.31 billion.

On July 20, Cramer said the following about Apple:

It's hard for me to think of Apple in terms of a stock, even as right here, right now, today ... I'm raising my price target for Apple, from $400 to $500 ... where it will be selling at a measly 11.5 times my estimate for next year's fiscal year earnings ... only about three-quarters of what the average company in the S&P 500 sells for.

Apple is also one of the Julian Robertson’s top ten picks (see Robertson’s top holdings here).
