Palantir Stock: Buy or Sell?

Palantir announced that it will file for IPO soon. Palantir has been seen as a controversial company since it has come on the scene led by its controversial CEO Peter Thiel. Thiel is famous for funding an endless campaign to silence his dissidents in the press and funding the campaign to take down Gawker Media. Thiel has pushed companies like Facebook not to vet fake political ads and when controversy happens in Silicon Valley, his name is frequently in the mix.

Cramer talks about the Palantir IPO.

McDonald's Stock: Buy or Sell?

McDonald's announced on Wednesday that they are probing the activity of former CEO Steve Easterbrook to identify if he directed the cover-up of improprieties by other McDonald’s employees. Easterbrook denied he had any other improper relationships during his tenure at McDonald's last week. McDonald's did announce they are releasing a spicy version of their famous Chicken McNuggets but will that be enough to overtake their competitors?

Cramer likes another fast food restaurant version of spicy chicken nuggets and recommends their stock.
