NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Monday:
Investors in hotel stocks are betting on a recession, but Cramer still loves Starwood Hotels (HOT). He was also upbeat on Petsmart (PETM), calling it one of the best upside surprises this earnings season.
Starwood shares closed 1.4% higher while those of Petsmart rose 2.2%.Cramer said the bears are worried about commodity costs at Dean Foods (DF) but he disagrees, saying those fears are in the past. He was also bullish on Agilent (A), noting that tech spending in emerging markets may be on the rise.
Dean Food shares ended Monday up 1.5% while Agilent jumped nearly 5%. Finally, Cramer gave a positive nod to Marathon Oil (MRO), a domestic oil and gas company that is immune to rising tensions in Israel, and Diageo (DEO), one of his favorite international growth companies. Marathon Oil stock rose 1.4% on the day while Diageo was bubbled up 1.8%.
