Is it time to get out of Prudential (PRU) - Get Prudential Financial, Inc. Report?-- Jason from New York

James J. Cramer:

I believe that Prudential is an excellent stock for the long-term and it is one of my favorite names in the insurance space. At about 14 times forward earnings, Prudential also looks like a good buy to me.

Is it too late to get into Broadcomundefined?-- Rebecca from Florida

TheStreet Recommends

James J. Cramer:

I would wait for a pullback before getting into Broadcom because the stock has had an absolutely monstrous run. I believe it will take some time for the market to digest the gains.

The company is in the sweet spot of a number of great product cycles including Bluetooth and wireless networking, but I believe there will be a better time to get into the stock in the next few months.
