Jim, you recommended ATI Technologies (ATYT) for a trade into the release of the Xbox 360. So, is the stock a short after the Xbox 360 comes out?-- Vaibhav from New York

James J. Cramer:

Even though a lot of the rally in ATI is built on hype, I don't recommend shorting it after the Xbox 360 release. The company has been improving its PC product line to better compete with

, and I don't think it is good practice to short when the news flow could be better than expected.

Jim, is Hansen Natural (HANS) a short now that the stock has moved up so much?-- Finn from Nebraska

James J. Cramer:

No way. Even if I thought the Hansen's fundamentals were bad, the short interest is already so high that the stock could continue to skyrocket if it does anything remotely positive. Plus, it just reported a good quarter, so I think the short story on Hansen is done.
