Seeking Alpha publishes a summary of Jim Cramer's stock picks every day including: Mad Money Recap, Lightning Round, Stop Trading and his Wall Street Confidential Picks.
Cramer continued his series on Dow Stocks by admitting his target of $110 for IBM was too conservative, and given the company's great dividend and buyback, it should reach $114, but no higher. JNJ is a sell in spite of Warren Buffet's buying the stock. Cramer thinks it is staying at $63, and opines that maybe Warren Buffet liked the steady nature of the band-aid business, but adds "With so many other great names in the Dow, why back up the truck for band-aids?" Cramer called JPM's CEO Jamie Dimond a "great banker," but thinks he is going to be prevented from bringing out the best in JPM by the Fed; "Three more points for JPM, and then I'd declare victory." While MCD has a great international business, Cramer thinks it will peak 4 points from now at $55. Cramer says he was too conservative predicting MRK would go to $50, but at $53, he says the stock is "pretty much done for the year." On the other hand, he admits he was too bullish on MSFT, but is not changing his $35 target, since the company may underpromise and overdeliver.
Google has been stalled for a while, but Amazon has brought "in the jumper cables," says Cramer. AMZN's move from $39 to $69 makes GOOG look cheap in comparison, especially since Google has 63% sales growth and almost no competition while AMZN has 33% growth with competition from almost every retailer in America. Cramer sets the target for Google at $600, but admits he is being conservative.

Cramer declared a special "Crime and Punishment" edition of this week's Sell Block, inspired by the crime of his "hubris" (overweening pride) last week when he broke his own rule about avoiding tech until August. He now regrets having recommended CA which is down 7.4% since last Friday and ADI which he "missed by a mile."
When a viewer asked how to play the shortage of polysilicon in Chinese Solar IPOs, Cramer said WFR is the obvious choice, but it missed the quarter and at $58, it's a "no-go." Cramer told another viewer to hold on to Taser, which he recommended ahead of the French election, for at least a few more points. Cramer says RDC has "too much actual drill for me" and says NOV is still "best in show."
