A takeover could come soon.

Cramer discussed Cleveland-Cliffs on Stop Trading! on May 7, saying he liked the stock off the since-aborted deal between Alcan (AL) - Get Air Lease Corporation Class A Report and Alcoa (AA) - Get Alcoa Corp. Report. He said at the time that the stock is "finally working."

On Friday's show he said he was confident there'd be a deal soon, possibly within days. The stock was recently trading up nearly 7% to $75.66 in afternoon trading.

Cramer also discussed a report from UBS analyst Alexander Goldfarb that said apartment REITs could be the next attractive takeover area.
