With its high finding costs, Newmont Mining ( NEM) is no longer a best-of-breed mining company, and it must make an acquisition if it wants to get the title back, Jim Cramer said on CNBC's "Stop Trading" segment Wednesday. Cramer said he prefers Goldcorp ( GG), which is "cheaper and a better play." Regarding Genentech's ( DNA) 0.8% fall Wednesday, Cramer said investors were focusing on a weak forecast for cancer treatment Avastin and ignoring good clinical news for Rituxan. "I think they go substantially lower without the Ritxuan news." Among tech stocks, Cramer said Seagate ( STX), Motorola ( MOT) and Texas Instruments ( TXN) are "telling a great story" at a Goldman Sachs conference. He said a source even praised Sun Microsystems ( SUNW), evidence that "every dog truly has its day." Cramer reiterated his distaste for loose-lipped executives at Google ( GOOG), saying CFO George Reyes should lose his job after his comments on growth prospects Tuesday. "Reyes is the CFO that I least like today," Cramer said. Otherwise, the stock is "terrific."
