2 Tech Buys and 6 Sell Ideas from Jim Cramer

Data Source: Wall St. Watch Dog

8 of the ideas mentioned in the technology sector are worth extra attention.

Cramer was bearish on companies reliant on the PC sector:

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) shares traded close to $30, until Windows 8 was released. Investors reduced their enthusiasm for Windows-based tablets, as the RT tablet failed to impress. There are many factors at play. In addition to needing time to build user-interest, the Surface tablet pricing, distribution, and uniqueness in the marketplace are other factors hurting demand.

Hewlett-Packard Company (HPQ) is a company Cramer ranks a sell. HP recently reported a weak quarter, blaming accounting problems at its over-paid division, Autonomy, as the reason. Until HP innovates its line of computers and printers, investors should not expect shares to improve.

Unsurprisingly, Groupon, Inc. (GRPN) is a company mentioned as one to avoid. Shares are up 85% from its 52-week low.

Bloomberg wrote about Groupon’s DealAdvisor platform, which helps merchants analyze pricing, volume, and distribution.

Pandora Media, Inc. (P) is another company to avoid. Rallying over 25% from its low, Pandora faces competition from many streaming audio players like Spotify and even Dropbox. Dropbox acquired Audiogalaxy, which may compete against Pandora in the future.

On the bullish side, Cramer liked these companies:

Oracle Corporation (ORCL). Oracle recently purchased Eloqua (ELOQ) for $23.50 per share. Eloqua is a cloud marketing software provider.

The software company forecasted a growth in revenue during its quarterly report, and earnings of $0.64-$0.68 per share next quarter.
