Check out Jim Cramer's latest trading recommendations on "Action Alerts Plus".


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Buy shares of Google (GOOG) or Apple (AAPL) ? That's the question on many tech investors' minds.

Jim Cramer told Debra Borchardt at TheStreet.com Monday that he's sticking with Apple, a stock he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS.

Cramer said that while both Apple and Google reported disappointing quarters, Google is frankly in a lot businesses that don't make a lot of money. He said the Android operating system doesn't make Google as much as Apple makes from its iOS platform and even in advertising, Google's bread and butter, the transition to mobile has been challenging.

Cramer reminded viewers that Google has a higher multiple than Apple as well, which is why he continues to prefer Apple, which is now well off its highs.
