TheStreet looked at stocks that soared under the Federal Reserve’s QE program, and Jim Cramer explains why some shares performed better than others. Cramer, who’s portfolio manager of Action Alerts PLUS, said Regeneron (REGN) did well because it had a superior treatment for an eye condition. Cramer said Netflix (NFLX) was a winner because it’s a service provider that is a lot like Amazon (AMZN), and the company is able to raise prices without losing customers. Cramer also talked about Chipotle (CMG), which hasn’t soared lately due to problems with E coli at its restaurants. Cramer said he’d like to see a couple of quarters behind the company to see if it stabilizes. Other stocks that soared during that period were General Growth Properties, Keurig Green Mountain, Wyndham, Priceline, United Rentals, Signet Jewelers, and Seagate. TheStreet's Rhonda Schaffler has details from the New York Stock Exchange.
