On Wednesday's "Mad Money" TV show, Jim Cramer interviewed Agnico-Eagle CEO Sean Boyd and discussed the company's the outlook for gold. Boyd said Agnico owns all of its gold reserves, which means it can expand from current spaces rather than rely on starting new mines. He also expressed pride at the company's 27-year dividend.Cramer said he liked Agnico-Eagle Mines ( AEM) and the SPDR Gold Trust ( GLD) and said that gold is a responsible investment. On Thursday, Agnico lost $1.91, or 4.2%, to close at $44.11. SPDR Gold Trust was off $1.06, or 1.2%, to close at $87.27. Cramer also spoke with Panera Bread ( PNRA) CEO Ron Shaich about that company's quarterly earnings report. The company's earnings were strong, but the stock plunged on Wednesday. Cramer likes Panera and considers it an investment opportunity. The stock closed up 64 cents, or 1.2%, to $56.01 on Thursday. He said that the action on Wednesday in Dendreon ( DNDN) seemed like a short squeeze. "I'm inclined to sell, sell, sell," he said. Dendreon lost $1.74, or 7.6%, to close at $21.20 on Thursday. Wal-Mart ( WMT), which Cramer owns for his Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust, "is going to stall a little here," he said, because "people want the exciting growth stocks." On Thursday, Wal-Mart traded down 5 cents to close at $50.40. Cramer said he was "worried" about steel stocks, including Nucor ( NUE), which he said had the best product profile. "I don't think it's going to do well," he said. "I'm not a buyer."
Nucor added $2.07, or 5.4%, to close at $40.69 on Thursday. Cramer told viewers that he'd rather be in ConocoPhillips ( COP) and BP ( BP), both of which he owns for Action Alerts PLUS, than in Canadian Natural Resources ( CNQ).
