During CNBC's "Cramer's Stop Trading" segment, he noted Barclays upgraded Panera Bread Company (PNRA) and Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) to buy from hold and increased price targets to $175 and $51, respectively.
Cramer wondered why on Dunkin' Brands since the company "had a really bad quarter."
Meanwhile, for whatever reason, investors don't seem to care about the great results reported by Starbucks (SBUX) a few weeks ago, when analysts did not like the industry as much and when geopolitical tensions were high.
"Dunkin' is in the penalty box with me," Cramer concluded, adding that Starbucks, an AAP holding, should climb back to its 52-week highs near $82. Shares are currently near $78, down nearly 1% for the year to date.
