Editor's note: The following are questions received from viewers of "Mad Money," seen every day at 6 p.m. EDT on CNBC.


Should I buy, sell or hold Boyd Gaming (BYD:NYSE)?

-- Charles from New Jersey

James J. Cramer: I recently spoke with CEO William Boyd on the show, and this is one of my favorite companies in the industry. That said, rising gas prices could cause a drop in customer visits, and I wouldn't be aggressive in purchasing any of the gaming stocks these days.


What is your outlook for financial stocks like Bank of America (BAC)?

-- Bob from California

James J. Cramer: I know that my associate David Peltier likes this stock for its 4.8% dividend yield. While I agree that BofA's dividend is secure, the company may be taking on too many acquisitions. Viewers must also realize that this is a difficult time to own any bank, as margins are being squeezed by the flat yield curve.


Is it too late to get into Southwestern Energy (SWN)?

-- Margaret from Virginia

James J. Cramer: Sadly, especially if you missed my original recommendation around $55, the answer is yes. This energy exploration stock has been white-hot of late, and I'd suggest waiting for a pullback below $70 before committing new capital.
