We analyzed the stocks which have been recommended by Cramer on Mad Money during the last 30 days. We don't think we have heard the end of the European debt crisis yet. As such, we prefer investing in Cramer's fundamentally strong stock picks. Using the stock screener at finviz.com, we picked the stocks with the lowest PE ratios and the low debt ratios. All stocks in this list have future and trailing P/E ratio of below 15, market cap higher than $20 Billion and Total Debt/Equity ratio of lower than 0.7.
