Baird upgraded real estate investment trust Realty Income Corp. (O), but Cramer said to be careful because if rates continue to rise, this stock becomes a sell. O was up 1% to $40.68.First Solar (FSLR) stock has been crushed since its secondary offering. Cramer said the stock is worth a look at these levels. FSLR was unchanged at $38.97. Cramer called everything in apparel a disaster, including Guess? (GES), which was downgraded by Piper Jaffray. GES fell 2% to $28.21. JPMorgan was positive on Facebook (FB). Cramer said this stock, a holding in his charitable trust Action Alerts PLUS, has been doing well since July. FB jumped 5.2% to $40.55.
