NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- On CNBC's "Cramer's Mad Dash" segment, TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio, took a look at a number of different stocks, the first of which was Bank of America (BAC - Get Report).
The company raised its quarterly dividend from 1 cent to 5 cents, its first increase in seven years.
The stock can continue to climb, Cramer reasoned, but it will likely struggle due to falling rates on the 10-year treasury bond.Turning to retail stocks, Morgan Stanley's top pick is Macy's (M - Get Report). Cramer said that even though the stock trades at just 12 times earnings, investors should be careful investing in this industry. Finally, in regards to General Electric (GE - Get Report), he said the stock's downside risk is likely to $24, while the potential upside is to $30.
