Don’t give up the ship. Those were Jim Cramer’s words to his Mad Money viewers Wednesday, as he pleaded with those looking to sell to hold onto their shares for a little while longer. Cramer said there are a number of great companies that investors gave up on, and that lack of conviction ended up being very costly.

First up, PPG Industries (PPG) , a stock that was seemingly caught in a rut, but shot up 6% today as the company announced its in talks to do another smart acquisition. Then there’s Children’s Place (PLCE) , which soared 18.2% in a single day, as the company proved it was able to break free of the mall malaise.


Cramer also called out H&R Block (HRB) , a company even he was skeptical of, but also one that rose — up 14.8% on strong earnings.

With the Federal Reserve eyeing four possible rate hikes, Cramer said is not the time to give up on the banks, which is why he owns Citigroup (C) for Action Alerts PLUS. Cramer said he wouldn’t give u p on Dow Chemical (DOW) , Arconic (ARNC) or the oil stocks either, as oil will be resuming its climb after this brief pause. He recommended EOG Resources (EOG) as a favorite in that group.
