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 Cabella's (CAB).
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%.
