We compiled Jim Cramer’s stock picks on his July 13th show:

1. Westport Innovations Inc. (WPRT): Westport Innovations provides alternative fuel, low-emissions technologies. WPRT recently traded at $26.93 and gained 50% during the past 12 months. The stock has a market cap of $1.2 billion.

WPRT gained 8.5 percent on Tuesday after Chesapeake Energy Corp. said it would invest $1 billion to creating demand for natural gas vehicles. Legendary investor George Soros had $122 million invested in WPRT at the end of March. (See George Soros’ top holdings).

On 29th June Cramer said that “Alright, now you’ve heard it. Obviously, the stock’s already run in advance. What I care about is the notion that you understand that a good speculation has a big end market, has a good balance sheet, which Westport does, and yes, if it’s speculation, I don’t mind you being enamored of the actual technology, as I am, because I think it’s a good money maker and good for the country. That’s Wesport Innovations.”

2. Caterpillar Inc. (CAT): Caterpillar is a Fortune 100 company and the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment. CAT recently traded at $108.64 and has a 1.7% dividend yield. CAT gained 66.3% during the past 12 months. The stock has a market cap of $70 billion and P/E ratio of 19.3.

On 11th June Cramer said “I mean, Caterpillar said over and over and over again, if they could get oil down to $80 or $90, that’s where they do best… $80-90. So then oil goes to $90, and what do they do? They sell, sell, sell. Why? Because they’re morons! I think Caterpillar’s terrific here. And, if it gets to $97 again, we’ll pull the trigger…”
