Here's what Cramer had to say about callers' stocks during the "Lightning Round":
Tesla Motors (TSLA): "It's been a speculative stock and I'm still going with sell, sell, sell."
Hess (HES): "No, no. Hess has been a disaster. Stay away."Cresud Sociedad (CRESY): "So dicey. I can't go there. No, no, I'm not recommending anything in Latin America." AT&T (T): "AT&T has it all right now. It's terrific. I think it's great." Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG): "The stock under $400 is a buy. I like Chipotle, I like Panera Bread (PNRA)." USG Corp (USG): "I think USG is a terrific play on housing. I think they're going to have a bunch of good quarters." Kimberly-Clark (KMB): "They disappointed the last few quarters. That one is turning around and it a buy, buy, buy." Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF): "I want to buy it. It's inexpensive if not a little speculative." Lockheed Martin (LMT): "I like the yield. I think it's terrific." Microsoft (MSFT): "I think Microsoft is terrific. It's inexpensive with a bunch of new products in the pipe." Lincoln National (LNC): "No, no. Too risky. If I want an insurer I'm going with Travelers Companies (TRV) or American International Group (AIG)." Ultra Petroleum (UPL): "That is 100% natural gas. I'm send you to Devon Energy (DVN). I think Devon is better."
Family TherapyIn a special "Family Therapy" segment, Cramer weighed in on investing disputes within audience members' families. When asked about the eastern European VimpelCom (VIP) and Windstream (WIN), Cramer said Windstream is in the penalty box and can be owned for yield only, with AT&T and Verizon (VZ) being a lot better. He said VimpelCom is a simple "no." When asked about Chesapeake Energy (CHK), Cramer said the company is tainted. He recommended Devon Energy (DVN) as a better play. Cramer's said he's worried about Nordic American Tanker (NAT) and would not be a buyer right now.
Rumors and SpeculationShould investors speculate on a takeover if a company's fundamentals are deteriorating? Only if they're OK with losing their investment, said Cramer. While there have been countless rumors that both Nokia (NOK) and Research in Motion (RIMM) are ripe for the picking, Cramer said there are major flaws with this line of thinking. First, both Nokia and RIM are the darlings of their home countries of Finland and Canada, respectively, and are not likely going to be allowed to be sold to foreign entities.
