NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- An unlikely stock was the focus of CNBC's "Cramer's Stop Trading Segment."
Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, took a close look at Zynga (ZNGA), which was upgraded to a buy rating with a $7 price target by Wedbush Securities.
Cramer called Zynga CEO Don Mattrick "very accomplished" from his days at Electronic Arts (EA).
He added that Zynga has a lot of things going for it, including a strong balance sheet, improving cost structure and the stabilization of its core business. The company is also creating more games.
"I like this [analyst's] call because this is a name that had been given up for dead," Cramer concluded, adding that Zynga is worth a look.-- Written by Bret Kenwell in Petoskey, Mich. Follow @BretKenwell
