NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Thursday:
Cramer agreed with Stifel cutting its rating on MasterCard (MA). "For the first time Visa (V) and MasterCard are not trading together. MasterCard people are selling. Visa had an amazing quarter. Stifel's right," he said. MA rose 1.1% to $545.53.
International Paper (IP) reported a "rare miss" Cramer said. "I just got to dig deeper. This could be an opportunity." IP fell 3.5% to $44.27.Alcoa (AA) is debating cutting back production. "The world is flooded with aluminum," Cramer said. "They don't know what to do. It's not just China, it's Russia." AA was flat at $8.46. Every day Gilead Sciences' (GILD) stock stalls, Cramer said. But the company has a new drug for hepatitis C and "I think they've got the cure." GILD ended Thursday up 4.1% at $52.18. Prudential Financial (PRU) had a good quarter. "Holy cow! When they get it right, when you look at what happens, what an amazing story," Cramer said. PRU jumped 7% to $63.41. Allergan (AGN) stock overreacted to news that a drug that wasn't expected until 2017 is not working. The stock dropped 14% Wednesday. Still, Cramer said, "What a great story that is." AGN rose 2.7% to $101.31. To sign up for Jim Cramer's free Booyah! newsletter, with all of his latest articles and videos, please click here. -- Written by Anthony Buccino in New York.
