Cramer likes the stock, but its recent performance has not been good. TheStreet's Herb Greenberg has been spot on with the stock in Real Money that same-store sales are decreasing rather than accelerating, Cramer noted. If that's the case, Cramer thinks the situation is very "worrisome."
Turning to eBay (EBAY), he acknowledged that it used to be a stock in the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio but it proved too difficult to own.
He added that Evercore Partners downgraded the stock. The analyst has dependable insight into the company and Cramer recommended investors avoid the stock.
Finally, he called Yum! Brands (YUM) a buy near $72, pending some freak bird flu problem in China -- something that has plagued the company in the past.
He concluded that he is a believer in CEO David Novak and suggested the stock isn't as bad as many investors think.
