What do you think of Jefferies (JEF) - Get Jefferies Financial Group Inc. Report?-- William from New York

James J. Cramer:

I think Jefferies has done a great job in building up its investment banking business, but at this point, the stock is very expensive at about 20 times expected 2005 earnings. Right now,

Lehman Brothers

(LEH)

and

Bear Stearns

(BSC)

TheStreet Recommends

are my favorite brokerage names.

Yesterday, Prince Alwaleed of Saudi Arabia, who owns 10% of Citigroup (C) - Get Citigroup Inc. Report, put a 12-month price target of $70 on the stock. What do you think?-- Mike from New York

James J. Cramer:

I would be completely shocked if Citigroup hit $70 in 12 months even if the financial came back in favor. Right now I would rather be in

JP Morgan

(JPM) - Get JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) Report

than Citigroup because it has less regulatory problems, and Jamie Dimon is one of the best managers in the business.
