Friday and late yesterday, Jim Cramer responded to a new batch of questions posed by members of the Stockpickr community.
Anybody can ask, respond or comment at Stockpickr Answers; the top responders get ranked in our "Top Analysts" section.
Here are a few of the questions to which Cramer has recently responded:
- I see you like/liked Halliburton (HAL) - Get Report, and was wondering how you feel about their little Houston brother BJ Services( BJS). Why do they lag behind in that sector so much?
- GlobalSantaFe (GSF) :Does this downgrade of GSF make any sense?
- How important is the reduction of FreeportMcMoRan's (FCX) - Get Report debt? They cut their long-term notes to $2.45 billion at the end of June from $4.4 billion a quarter before. Chief Executive Richard Adkerson said that the higher commodity prices helped them pay this down, but do we need to worry about them not increasing their earnings as quickly now?
- Do we have to wait for Altria (MO) - Get Report to announce the spinoff before it can continue its climb? Do you still feel that this is the No. 1 value stock out there?
- Do you think the financial sector will be the big breakout during the second half of the year? Will tech and finance replace oil and industrials?
- Exxon Mobil (XOM) - Get Report vs. ConocoPhillips (COP) - Get Report:I own XOM. Should I sell it and buy COP?
- Regarding AT&T (T) - Get Report: With 4 upgrades since March, iPhone action, BlackBerry action, tons of positive news and next-year numbers that say it should be a $62 stock -- what, in your opinion, is it waiting for?
- Regarding AIG (AIG) - Get Report: I just got an email notice that Hank Greenberg just sold another million shares. How does this stock hold up when he's doing this almost every day?
- Love your ConocoPhillips recommendation; however, I own Chevron (CVX) - Get Report, which I bought at 61 last September.Do you think CVX meets your over 80 to 120 criteria?
- Is Goldman Sachs (GS) - Get Report on sale here? Or is the market still trying to decide, and it is too risky to buy more?
- With Foster Wheeler (FWLT) joining the Nasdaq 100 on July 12, does this mean that the mutual funds and indices tracking the Nasdaq 100 will have to add it to their portfolio, thus creating new demand, or is this most likely something that will have already been taken into account?
