MetLife

(MET) - Get Report

is a terrific company and I am going to overlook that it has some problems with its annuities business," Jim Cramer told a caller on his

"RealMoney" radio show Tuesday.

He said he's sticking with the stock, as he regards "the pullback as a buyable one, not a sellable one."

Cheesecake Factory

(CAKE) - Get Report

has not been performing too well the last few months, and people are getting "freaked out," Cramer told another caller.

However, "the negativity on Cheesecake is too great," he said.

Although Cramer doesn't have conviction that the company, which reports in 20 days, will do well this quarter, he does have conviction that it will do well long-term.

"I don't want to walk away from it," he said.

When a caller inquired about

Hasbro

(HAS) - Get Report

, Cramer said there should be more upside with this stock.

Both it and

Mattel

(MAT) - Get Report

are going up, he said.

The fact that

Sonoco Products

(SON) - Get Report

makes a proprietary product for its clients, has a 3% yield and is a "quiet grower," bodes well for the company, Cramer said.

It has no negativity and is a good stock to own, he added.

Responding to another caller, Cramer said he has disliked

Coventry Health Care

(CVH)

for some time, saying the company is not very well run.

In this sector, he said he has liked

UnitedHealth

(UNH) - Get Report

, which he owns for his charitable trust,

Action Alerts PLUS, but even this stock has been a "heartbreaker" as of late.

Cramer advised the caller to "steer clear" of this industry until after the election next week.
