Check out Jim Cramer's latest trading recommendations on "Action Alerts Plus".
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here's what Jim Cramer had to say on CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Friday: Investors worried about the economy should still consider spice-maker McCormick ( MKC) as a safe place to invest, Cramer said. He added that with the continued slowdown in China, it was surprising to see an analyst downgrade Caterpillar ( CAT), adding, "I was surprised they still had it as a buy." Cramer said he was also surprised to see an upgrade of Las Vegas Sands ( LVS), another China play, saying he's not a buyer of that thesis. With corn prices going higher, Cramer said John Deere ( DE) may be a buy, but he wants to wait to hear from Monsanto ( MON) and Mosaic ( MOS) first. He was more bullish on Edwards Lifesciences ( EW), saying the company's new open-heart surgery technique means a lot for its stock. Finally, Cramer said the quarter at Walgreen ( WAG) wasn't all that bad, and he's still a believer of this comeback story. --Written by Scott Rutt in Washington, D.C.
