  • I bought Dow Chemical (DOW), at $44.55, thinking it had a solid dividend and also represented a good buyout candidate. Is its new deal with Kuwait the first step in a sellout?

  • I'm losing on Shaw Group (SGR), which I bought at $65. Should I get out or wait it out? I'm afraid to throw more money in to average down.

  • Sorry, Cramer, I have to disagree with your Best Buy (BBY) pick. ... The last time I looked for something at Best Buy, the sales guy at the camera counter was a jerk and did everything he could to discourage my business, including almost yelling at me when I asked questions about the cameras. I ended up buying my next camera at Target, which has a much better electronics selection than Best Buy, and they sell home goods, groceries and clothes! If it's a toss up between the two and you want a retail play, I say go with Target (TGT).
    Anyone else agree/disagree?
