NEW YORK (
TheStreet) --Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on
CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Thursday:
Target(TGT - Get Report) shares are holding up well, which is puzzling if things are as bad as some people are predicting, Cramer said. If
Taser's(TASR - Get Report) products are deemed illegal, then the gun makers will pop, he added, which is why he likes retailer
Target shares were flat but Taser's were stung by a 8.2% drop at the close Thursday.
Cramer was dismissive of activist shareholders trying to split up
Timken(TKR - Get Report), saying he's been to its factories and the businesses can't be separated. Its shares closed down 3.3%.
Cramer gave outright buys on
PPG(PPG - Get Report) and
Carmax(KMX - Get Report), the latter of which is benefitting from Hurricane Sandy.
Both PPG and Carmax ended the day up 1%.
Finally, Cramer was bullish on
Amazon.com(AMZN - Get Report), calling this the "online Christmas." He said Amazon should take out the $270 a share level soon. Amazon stock closed up 1.7%.
