Jim Cramer is the host of CNBC's "Mad Money" and the chairman of TheStreet.com. In 1987, Cramer started his own hedge fund and returned an average of 24% per year between 1987 and 2001. Cramer also authored six money management books.

During the last week, his favorite buy recommendations (eight stocks that are recommended in at least two separate shows) on "Mad Money" were as follows:

1. Baidu.com (BIDU): Baidu provides Chinese and Japanese language Internet search services. Cramer repeated his buy recommendation of BIDU twice during the last week. BIDU recently traded at $150.15 and gained 81.67% during the past 12 months. The stock has a market cap of $52.4 billion and P/E ratio of 68.88. Navellier’s Navellier & Associates had $69 million invested in BIDU shares. Ken Fisher's Fisher Asset Management also had $492 Million in BIDU at the end of March (see Ken fisher's top holdings).

2. EOG Resources (EOG): EOG Resources provides natural gas and crude oil worldwide. Cramer repeated his buy recommendation of EOG twice during the last week. EOG recently traded at $94.15 and has a 0.68% dividend yield. EOG gained 0.61% during the past 12 months. The stock has a market cap of $25.3 billion and P/E ratio of 61.14. Cramer stated that EOG Resources is the most underrated stock in the oil market. This market is giving EOG too little recognition for the company’s assets [considering BHP Billiton’s (BHP) willingness to purchase Petrohawk (HK) for 12.1B] and is providing a chance to own one of Cramer’s “absolute favorite stocks”.

“EOG earned $1.11 per share, beating estimates by $0.32 cents per share. The company doesn’t need high crude prices to maintain earnings, as they have ample new production,” Cramer said.

3. Bristol.Myers Squibb (BMY): Bristol.Myers Squibb is a global biopharmaceutical company. Cramer repeated his buy recommendation of BMY twice during the last week. BMY recently traded at $27.97 and has a 4.72% dividend yield. BMY gained 11.48% during the past 12 months. The stock has a market cap of $47.7 billion and P/E ratio of 14.57. Both Samuel Isaly and Simons hold more than $100 million in BMY (see billionaire Jim Simons’ top stock picks here).

4. Consolidated Edison (ED): Consolidated Edison provides electric, gas, and steam utility services in the United States. Cramer repeated his buy recommendation of ED twice during the last week. ED recently traded at $53.73 and has a 4.47% dividend yield. ED gained 18.53% during the past 12 months. The stock has a market cap of $15.7 billion and P/E ratio of 14.72.

5. Enterprise Products Partners (EPD): Enterprise Products Partners provides midstream energy services in North America. Cramer repeated his buy recommendation of EPD twice during the last week. EPD recently traded at $42.37 and has a 5.71% dividend yield. EPD gained 21.82% during the past 12 months. The stock has a market cap of $36 billion and P/E ratio of 32.1. In the past 5 years, EPD increased its dividend payments by 6.34% annually. John Osterweis holds nearly $70 million of EPD.

6. Kimberly.Clark (KMB): Kimberly.Clark Corporation provides health care products worldwide. Cramer repeated his buy recommendation of KMB twice during the last week. KMB recently traded at $65.14 and has a 4.3% dividend yield. KMB gained 4.83% during the past 12 months. The stock has a market cap of $25.6 billion and P/E ratio of 15.4.

7. Verizon (VZ): Verizon Communications provides communication services. Cramer repeated his buy recommendation of VZ twice during the last week.
