Cramer's 'Mad Money' Lightning Round: Motorola on the Move
Below are the stocks Jim Cramer discussed during his "Mad Money" "Lightning Round" on CNBC Thursday night. He says if you own Motorola (MOT), "you are one lucky son of a gun." And if you own Cisco Systems (CSCO), you are in good stead. Microsoft (MSFT) is now moving higher and Cramer said that Cisco will "be last to move (higher), but move it will."
'The Lightning Round'
BullishCramer also was bullish on Intel (INTC), Fortune Brands (FO), Cisco Systems (CSCO), Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), National Oilwell Varco (NOV), Public Service Enterprise (PEG), Dominion Resources (D), Stride Rite (SRR), GlobalSantaFe (GSF), PetroChina (PTR), Chemed (CHE), Wyeth (WYE), CMGI (CMGI), XTO Energy (XTO), IntraLase (ILSE), Canon (CAJ), Best Buy (BBY), Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), and Con Edison (ED).
BearishHe was bearish on: St. Mary Land & Exploration (SM), NutriSystem (NTRI), Au Optronics (AUO), OmniVision Technologies (OVTI), Affymetrix (AFFX), ViroPharma (VPHM), Dynamic Materials (BOOM), Dycom Industries (DY), Affiliated Computer Services (ACS), Ansys (ANSS), Meridian Resources (TMR), Quanta Services (PWR), Gentex (GNTX) and Presstek (PRST).
Cramer also pointed to eight worst of breed stocks that could work under the right conditions. They are:
Rite Aid (RAD). If we ever catch a flu outbreak -- along the lines of a pandemic -- this stock is for you.
Ditto Tenet Healthcare (THC). If enough people get sick, even this stock could do well.Doral Financial (DRL). If the Federal Reserve ever stops raising rates, even this lowly Puerto Rican bank could make you some money. Agco (AG). When the cycle is strong, even these guys can't be denied, Cramer said. AK Steel Holding (AKS). The worst of the steel stocks, Cramer said, even move higher when steel spikes up. Southern Peru Copper (PCU). Cramer called this stock the worst of breed writ large. But even these guys can make money when copper is at astronomical levels. Alon USA (ALJ). Totally cheap, Cramer said. And even it works when the refinery cycle is on fire. Parker Drilling (PKD). It must be some environment for rigs, Cramer said. Even this one goes up. Cramer's point in looking at these worst-of-breed stocks is that some times it makes sense to own certain stocks in certain situations. Even the worst-of-breed stocks have their days. But these are stocks that are only for a trade. When the cycle is hot, even the worst of breeds can catch a bid.
