Jim Cramer's "top picks for a vanishing middle class:" PRGO, THS, AZO, ORLY, FDO, SKS. Stay away from traditional defensive plays, he says, including CLX, CL and PG, since consumers aren't buying these marquee brands when they can get similar products for less money.

    Saks for the middle class? When did they become a discounter?Colgate has the cheapest toothpaste on my grocer's shelves. I think Jim is out of touch.

    The only reason I clicked on this link was because I find it fascinating that the "vanishing middle class" has made it into investment strategy. I say buh-bye suburbia!
