NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" Wednesday.
Merrill Lynch upgraded Best Buy (BBY) to hold from sell. Cramer said the once-hated stock continues to get some love from analysts. BBY was unchanged at $37.14.
Cramer noted that Sterne Agee is positive on Halliburton (HAL) following the company's recent Dutch tender offering, which weighed on the stock over the past several trading sessions. HAL was up 1.6% to $49.08.Francesca's (FRAN) is getting crushed following an earnings miss. Cramer pointed out the contrast between lower-end and teen apparel versus a higher-end player like Michael Kors (KORS), which is doing very well. FRAN dropped like a stone by 26% to $17.79. Facebook (FB) got a price target boost to $50 at Baird. Cramer likes that, especially since his Action Alerts PLUS charitable portfolio owns shares. FB was flat at $41.78. Citigroup is optimistic on Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) ahead of its Sept. 19 analyst meeting. Cramer said Nike (NKE) has been strong as of late, which could be beneficial to the sporting goods retailer. DKS rose by 2% to $47.79. Cramer said Micron (MU) and SanDisk (SNDK) are benefiting in a big way from the recent factory fire at Hynix, a maker of flash memory and DRAM. MU ended the day 5.3% higher at $14.75.
