Walgreen

(WAG)

is a best-of-breed drugstore that's better than

CVS

(CVS) - Get Free Report

and

Rite Aid

(RAD) - Get Free Report

, Jim Cramer told a caller to his

"RealMoney" radio show Friday

It has the best management in the industry, and although until recently the stock has not done anything, it's starting to move up as the market goes down, he said.

"Walgreen falls into the thesis of what you buy when everything's going down," said Cramer.

He told another caller to stick with

UnitedHealth

(UNH) - Get Free Report

, which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS.

Cramer believes UnitedHealth is going to make its quarter and has one of the best stock charts.

Cigna

(CI) - Get Free Report

and

Aetna

(AET)

have both been moving up, but UnitedHealth has lagged behind because of its options backdating issue, but Cramer believes the problem is going away.

In a slowing economy, Cramer said

AT&T

(T) - Get Free Report

could be a good stock, and he advised a caller to stick with it.

When a caller inquired about

Kohl's

(KSS) - Get Free Report

, Cramer recommended waiting until the stock comes down and then swooping some up, since it is currently a point off its 52-week high.

Cramer said the problem with

Disney

(DIS) - Get Free Report

is that people don't want to make the trek to the company's amusement parks because of high oil prices.

However, he believes this problem is short term, because eventually people will get used to high oil prices. He said he would pick up some Disney.

Cramer told a caller to buy some

Amgen

(AMGN) - Get Free Report

now.

The stock, which is three points off its low and 20 points off its high, is the best bargain in biotech, he said.

When a caller asked about

Starbucks

(SBUX) - Get Free Report

, Cramer said to pull the trigger on the stock now, as he believes it may become more of a Japan and China story than a U.S. story.

Cramer advised a caller that patience will prevail with

Halliburton

(HAL) - Get Free Report

, which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS.

Although he said he is confused as to why Halliburton hasn't spun out of its construction business yet, he recently went through another company presentation that says the spinoff is imminent and will eventually get done.

When that happens Halliburton will make people money, he said.

Cramer said people are in great shape with

ABB

(ABB) - Get Free Report

, which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS.

It is a giant infrastructure play and one of Cramer's favorites, he said, adding that ABB is at the forefront of creating more power plants worldwide, and he isn't concerned about it.

Cameco

(CCJ) - Get Free Report

is without a doubt a long-term thesis, and Cramer said he would not let it go, and would buy some when it goes down a bit since uranium is here to stay.

The fundamentals of

New York Times

(NYT) - Get Free Report

are falling apart, and Cramer recommended selling it, not buying it, since he said he does not trust the stock.

He also advised swapping out of

Alcoa

(AA) - Get Free Report

and into

Alcan

(AL) - Get Free Report

, which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS.
