Is Aetna (AET) a good buy here?
-- John from Connecticut

James J. Cramer

: Aetna is one of the best run HMOs out there, but I still prefer

UnitedHealth

(UNH) - Get Report

, which I own for my

actionalertsplus.com Charitable Trust.

What is your take on Enterra Energy (EENC) ?-- Eileen from Indianapolis

James J. Cramer

: Enterra is a Canadian energy trust, yielding some 9% at the current price. And while I like energy, I think I would rather see you in a U.S. trust, like

Kinder Morgan

(KMP)

, which yields about three percentage points less, but is a better-run company.

At the time of publication, Cramer was long UnitedHealth Group.
