Jim Cramer's 'Stop Trading!': Yahoo! Phooey - TheStreet

"The constant barrage of headlines and news" concerning

Yahoo!

(YHOO)

has hurt its overall plan, said Jim Cramer Monday on

CNBC's

"Stop Trading" segment.

In response to recent news that Yahoo! is no longer in talks with

News Corp.

(NWS) - Get Report

and is open to a deal with

Microsoft

(MSFT) - Get Report

, Cramer felt that Yahoo! "management has its hands full and that Carl Icahn would win here" but then had to wonder "what is he really winning?" Additionally, Cramer doesn't think Yahoo! "will get a huge price anymore."

Turning to financials, specifically the

Lehman

(LEH)

article today on

Fannie Mae

(FNM)

and

Freddie Mac

(FRE)

, Cramer said "these financials are all in the same shape" and that they "need the government to stop looking and for everyone to stop saying we'll get through it."

Cramer said he felt that if that didn't happen, "we'll have a big bailout," which wouldn't help anything. He ended the segment by stressing to "absolutely sell Fanny and Freddie."

At the time of publication, Cramer had no positions in any of the stocks mentioned.
