NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Thursday:
Tupperware's (TUP - Get Report) direct sales model is working and this well-run company is headed higher. Cramer was also bullish on Kellogg (K - Get Report), a company that beat earnings estimates and "could be on fire" now that management has its act together.Tupperware shares closed 6.4% higher Wednesday while those of Kellogg were up 2.3%. Cramer was less bullish on Exxon Mobil (XOM - Get Report) and drug maker Pfizer (PFE - Get Report), saying that both companies are buying back tons of their own shares but neither is offering much in the way of growth. Exxon was up half a percentage point on the day and Pfizer fell 1.3%. When asked about Barrick Gold (ABX - Get Report), Cramer said it's getting harder and harder to produce cheap gold these days, making it harder and harder for the gold miners. Finally, Cramer said defense stock Alliant Technologies (ATK - Get Report) blew away its numbers despite the fiscal cliff looming in its future. Barrick Gold closed over 9% lower while Alliant was up 2.6%. --Written by Scott Rutt in Washington, D.C.
