NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on
CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" Thursday.
Chesapeake Energy(CHK - Get Report) has curbed its excessive spending habits, according to Cramer. He says the stock can go much higher. CHK gushed 7.1% higher at $24.95.
RR Donnelley & Sons(RRD - Get Report) was downgraded, but Cramer says the call is premature, citing the company's latest strong quarterly earnings results. RRD closed down nearly 1% at $18.85.
Concho Resources(CXO - Get Report) should trade much higher due to the high acreage the company has in the Permian Basin, one of the premier oil and gas producing areas of the country. CXO jumped 6.1% to $95.12.
MGM Resorts International(MGM - Get Report) posted 20% revenue growth in Macau, China, in a country that's supposedly slowing. Cramer added the stock is a good speculation play. MGM ended the day 3.3% higher at $16.85.
Cramer said a lot of analysts are against
American Tower(AMT - Get Report), but not Raymond James, who upgraded the stock to buy. AMT was up nearly 1% at $71.28.
Vulcan Materials(VMC - Get Report) is a great tell of residential housing, Cramer said. With "residential housing coming back big, Vulcan is coming back big," he added. VMC closed at $49.68, up 5.3%.
