NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Thursday.
Sterne Agee initiated Whole Foods Market (WFM - Get Report) as a buy. This move Cramer likes, noting this company is one of those performing well on his "Gatsby Index" of stocks. WFM rose 1% to close at $50.88.Abbott Laboratories (ABT - Get Report) and other drug stocks have been performing badly lately, but Cramer thinks this one is stabilizing and could have a nice run. ABT was up 1% to $36.64. VeriFone Systems (PAY - Get Report) provided very dismal guidance, prompting Cramer to say, "If you own VeriFone, phone home." PAY plummeted nearly 21% to $17.37. SAP AG (SAP - Get Report) is making a move into the cloud. Cramer noted SAP management does a lot of good things and that's why this stock is going higher. SAP ended trading up 1.4% to $75.74. Altria (MO - Get Report) recently raised prices but the share price is still low, which baffles Cramer. "When you raise prices, stocks go higher," he said. MO was flat at $35.81.
