Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: The Great Divide


MarkWest Energy Partners (MWE): "That's a good one. I think that stock should be owned." (CRM): "I think that Salesforce is doing very well. "

NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP): "I like it. It's a good spec."

Opko Health (OPK): "This stock is a great spec, but if their CEO would come back on the show I'd like it even more."

Verizon (VZ): "Verizon is under pressure from Sprint Nextel (S). When it gets to a 5% yield, pull the trigger. They've got competition now. "

Duke Energy (DUK): "Duke is fine. I like Duke. The yield is safe and the dividend can grow higher."

Consolidated Edison (ED): "A lot of people giving up on ConEd but they're a good stock and I'll bless it."

Akamai Technologies (AKAM): "I think it's a commodity business and I don't want to own it. It's played out. "

Pfizer (PFE): "I think it can go back to $23 but I don't like their growth prospects as much as Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY)."

Starbucks (SBUX): "This one has been going down. Just lay and wait and then go for the multi-year turn."

Executive Decision

In the "Executive Decision" segment, Cramer spoke with Sam Susser, chairman and CEO of Susser Petroleum (SUSP), a subsidiary of Susser Holdings (SUSS), which owns and operates 550 convenience stores and gas stations in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana. Susser Petroleum currently sports a 7.2% yield.

Susser explained that the gas station business tends to have volatility because of swings in fuel margins, so the company's parent, Susser Holdings, decided to spin off Susser Petroleum as a master limited partnership to provide investors a way to invest in the stable, consistent side of the business.

Susser explained that his company's success is not dependent on the price of gasoline but the volume of gas it ships, which is dependent on the number of locations operated by its parent as well as some third-party customers. That said, Susser, the parent, hopes to open 26 new locations this year with another 28 to 35 planned for next year.

When asked about natural gas, Susser said his company will have six stations pumping natural gas within the next six months as a test of the market. He said his company is also committed to expanding its distribution over time.
