Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: All Roads Lead to Navteq
Trade, Don't Invest
Cramer has changed his tune on Sirius Satellite Radio (SIRI - Get Report), if only for two months. Cramer sees a trade in Sirius until Christmas not because of Howard Stern, who will begin broadcasting his radio show exclusively on Sirius as of Jan. 1, but because CEO Mel Karmazin is a master of UPOD: Under Promise, Over Deliver.
Cramer said Sirius has done a good job keeping expectations low for Sirius' next quarter even though the company knows results will be fantastic. Cramer says, buy Sirius now and sell the stock once the company "blows away" expectations.
Make no mistake. This is a trade, not an investment, said Cramer. Sirius' reporting systems are "convoluted," he said, and he has no idea where the stock will be a year from now.A caller asked if Sirius' new portable music player was a threat to Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) iPod. Cramer said he is not concerned. However, the portable music player is a nice incremental business for Sirius, he said.
Take Up the BreakupCramer has been bullish on Cendant (CD) because he believes that the company is worth more split up than together. Yet, when the company announced a split last week, the stock dropped and has continued lower since. That caused Cramer to reassess. The result? He still believes that Cendant is a buy. "It's still worth a lot more than $17.50," near where Cendant traded after hours Tuesday. Cramer believes that Cendant is worth at least $25 on a breakup. Based on his sum-of-the-parts analysis, "Cendant is worth substantially more than $29 a share," he said. "I'm conservative!" "You should be in Cendant. I'm sticking by it, and I'm backing the truck up."
