      (1) Jim Cramer cheers Alphabet’s stock split, expects more retail investors to buy shares (

      • Alphabet shares may get more attractive to retail investors because of the company’s planned 20-for-1 stock split, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday.
      • The “Mad Money” host stressed that stock splits are purely cosmetic and do not impact a company’s underlying business.
      • Smaller investors, in particular, may welcome seeing a lower price per share in real U.S. dollar terms, Cramer said.

      Ticker: GOOGL

      Significance of Alphabet’s stock split: (i) Splits create no value but they signal to the retail investor that the company is doing well, (ii) individals who don’t want fractional shares thrive when they can buy 10 shares of a stock like Alphabet; (iii) Draws into question institutional bias

      (3) Jim Cramer sees promise in natural gas firm Coterra Energy (

      • CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Wednesday he sees promise in Coterra Energy, a natural gas-focused firm formerly called Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation.
      • “When you’re picking among oil and gas exploration and production companies, I think this Coterra Energy absolutely now belongs on the menu,” Cramer said.
      • However, the “Mad Money” host noted he prefers Devon Energy and Pioneer Natural Resources at the moment.

      Ticker: CTRA

      Bottom Line: prefers oil (eg. DVN and PXD) over natural gas, but if you are keen to natural gas CTRA is the way to go

      • Graphic Packaging: “I happen to like the packaging business. It’s where I’m from, and they make noncyclical packaging, which is really pretty good.”

      Ticker: BOXD, GPK
