NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on
CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Friday:
Investors worried about the economy should still consider spice-maker
(MKC - Get Report) as a safe place to invest, Cramer said.
He added that with the continued slowdown in China, it was surprising to see an analyst downgrade
(CAT - Get Report), adding, "I was surprised they still had it as a buy."
Cramer said he was also surprised to see an upgrade of
Las Vegas Sands
(LVS - Get Report)
, another China play, saying he's not a buyer of that thesis.
With corn prices going higher, Cramer said
(DE - Get Report)
may be a buy, but he wants to wait to hear from
He was more bullish on
(EW - Get Report)
, saying the company's new open-heart surgery technique means a lot for its stock.
Finally, Cramer said the quarter at
wasn't all that bad, and he's still a believer of this comeback story.
