NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- There was a broad sell-off across the major stock indices Tuesday, an event that was quite eye-popping for some; but Jim Cramer, on his Tuesday Stop Trading! segment on CNBC, said this is "not just a panic room situation."
"There are no knives going down" on drugs, food and dividend plays, according to Cramer, vocalizing names such as Pfizer (PFE), which just reported a good number; and General Mills (GIS), which is splitting its stock.
Cramer also made mention of utility stock Duke Energy (DUK), cautioning that he's not pro-Duke -- "I'm eventually worried about coal" -- but noting its strong quarter. He also said, " Entergy (ETR) -- okay now -- I know this is just beyond boring; but that's okay. Even though it's TV we can afford to be boring to make people money for a few minutes."As Nike (NKE) got ready for its investors meeting Wednesday, Cramer took the opportunity to air positive thoughts about its exposure to China's large shoe market. During the segment, Cramer also made a call out to D.R. Horton (DHI), who he believes has significant momentum, and urged investors to listen in on the company's conference call. -- Reported by Andrea Tse in New York
