Jim Cramer's 'Stop Trading!': Dividend Darlings

On Thursday's "Stop Trading!" segment on CNBC, Jim Cramer offered up a few dividend plays.

First up was DuPont ( DD). It has "a big housing component, but it's a very well-run company," said Cramer.

McDonald's ( MCD) recently raised its dividend. Cramer called CEO Jeff Skinner "a good man" and said Skinner "would not raise the dividend knowing that things are falling off the cliff."

As for BP ( BP), Cramer said he knows oil stocks are heading down, but "you've got to start looking at these."

Returning to an old pick, Cramer said that NYSE Euronext ( NYX) CEO Duncan Niederauer "has really solidified things with that yield and that buyback." He said that with its current price, investors are paying for Euronext and getting NYSE for free. "I do believe that if that stock goes back to its 52-week low, I'm going to say buy it," he said.

At the time of publication, Cramer had no positions in stocks mentioned.
