NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Monday:
Cramer said that while there was nothing said during Halliburton's (HAL - Get Report) conference call about gross margins getting better, the analysts seem to think they are, which is sending shares higher. He said analysts are also betting NetApp (NTAP - Get Report) will make its estimates. If that happens, Cramer said shares go to $45. HAL shares ended Monday up 1.4% while NTAP was up nearly 1%.
Cramer was upbeat on the possibility of Waste Management (WM - Get Report) converting into a REIT, but was left scratching his head on how Jos. A. Bank (JOSB - Get Report) could blame "election uncertainty" for slow suit sales. WM was up 2.2% but JOSB fell out of fashion with investors, who sent the stock down 15%.Rounding out the group, Cramer was bullish on Timkin Steel (TKR - Get Report), a company whose CEO he interviewed on last week's "Mad Money," and said he would be bullish on office supply giant Staples (SPLS - Get Report) if small business creation ever got moving again. TKR was flat while SPLS ended the trading day up 3%.
