On Tuesday's "Mad Money" show, Jim Cramer said that Yum! Brands ( YUM) was the best in its space, particularly because of its growth potential. He also liked its balance sheet and exposure to China.

On Wednesday, Yum! closed up 3 cents at $33.84.

Cramer said that in spite of earnings misses, Lam Research ( LRCX), Novellus ( NVLS) and KLA-Tencor ( KLAC) are all buys.

Lam closed up 30 cents, or 1.1%, at $26.72 on Wednesday; Novellus added 7 cents to $18.03; and KLA-Tencor was up 61 cents, or 2.3%, at $26.88.

He called Honeywell ( HON) "unbelievable" and said it's "insulting" that the stock is so low.

Honeywell closed up $1.47, or 5%, at $30.90 on Wednesday.

Buffalo Wild Wings ( BWLD) was one of Cramer's top picks in the restaurant category, but he preferred Darden ( DRI). He also said it would be "greedy " not to sell some Buffalo Wild Wings here.

Buffalo Wild Wings lost $2.38, or 5.5%, at $40.60 on Wednesday, while Darden lost $1.37, or 3.6%, to $36.74.
At the time of publication, Cramer was long Yum! Brands.
