Check out Jim Cramer's latest trading recommendations on "Action Alerts Plus".
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Jim Cramer had a lot to say about a recent wave of stock downgrades during his "Six Stocks in 60 Seconds" segment on Monday's "Squawk on the Street" on CNBC.
He said that data center purveyor Equinix (EQIX) remains the best-performing cloud computing play despite Monday's analyst downgrade. He was also bullish on telco equipment maker Ciena (CIEN) which may now be seeing some buying from Verizon (VZ).
Drug maker Eli Lilly (LLY) is a "red hot" stock like the rest of pharma, said Cramer, and remains good for a short-term trade. Pulte Homes (PHM) also remains a buy as the home builders continue to "make a fortune" despite repeated calls for a top in the housing market.Rounding out the group, Cramer dismissed rumors that Newell Rubbermaid (NWL) is "vulnerable." He said that Newell, like Stanley Black & Decker (SWK), continues to see its stock go up anyway. Cramer was also bullish on Broadcom (BRCM), a stock which he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS, and one that he said is poised to have an excellent second half. --Written by Scott Rutt in Washington, D.C.
