In the Lightning Round, Cramer was bullish on Lockheed Martin ( LMT), Applied Materials ( AMAT) and Masco ( MAS). Cramer was bearish on Clorox ( CLX) and First Solar ( FSLR).
In the "Mad Tweets" segment, Cramer responded to questions sent via Twitter to @JimCramer. He said that Usana Health Services ( USNA) is a highly controversial stock and he'd ring the register on this risky investment. He was also bearish on Clovis Oncology ( CLVS), a drug maker that has run 320% so far this year. Cramer said the company's drugs are still in Phase I testing and investors need to wait for now and he'll revisit the stock later. When asked about Fairway Markets ( FWM), a red-hot IPO, Cramer said he missed the move in Fairway, but still likes Whole Foods Markets more. Finally, when asked about Linn Energy ( LINE), a stock Cramer owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS , Cramer said that he's standing by his recommendation, even though shares have fallen.
No Huddle Offense
In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer opined on the notion that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke manipulated the markets by making comments Thursday that reversed the trend, sending the averages to a higher close on the day. Cramer said the Fed is not unsophisticated and knows that its words have an impact on the markets. In fact, influencing the markets is its job, in a way. In the end, Cramer said he doesn't care who manipulates what because manipulation occurs in both directions. What's important for investors is to know what's working, to get the stocks of great companies at great prices.
