In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), Stifel Financial (SF), The Blackstone Group (BX), Acadia Pharmaceuticals (ACAD), Armour Residential (ARR), Annaly Capital (NLY), Sprint Nextel (S) and Cisco Systems (CSCO).
Cramer was bearish on F5 Networks (FFIV).
In the "Mad Mail" viewer feedback segment, Cramer followed up on Blackrock Kelso Capital (BKCC), which stumped him during an earlier show. He said that while this company's 10.4% yield is intriguing, he'd rather own a more stable company like Blackstone Group.Cramer said that he'd be a buyer of Emeritus (ESC), a senior living facility operator, and also of Nordic American Tanker (NAT), which he said could begin to really take off. Cramer was bearish on Stratasys (SSYS), a company he said was best of the group, but one that was also very expensive and therefore dangerous. Ending the round was Linn Energy (LINE), a stock Cramer said he continues to like despite the increased short interest in the company.
No Huddle OffenseIn his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer called Salesforce.com's (CRM - Get Report) four-for-one stock split an "inspired move" and one that will make a big difference in how this stock trades. Of course, splitting a stock doesn't create any real value, but Cramer said that this stock has become a target for many large investors, which is why it trades like a football, up big one day, down big the next. The problem? There simply aren't enough shares to go around, which makes this thinly-traded commodity a wild ride that can be downright scary for anyone who wishing to buy and hold. But by increasing the share count four-fold, Cramer said the shorts and day traders will be forced to move elsewhere, as the big day-to-day wins and losses will now be muted.
