Cramer -- TripAdvisor, Keurig Green Mountain a Tale of Two Conference Calls

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer, portfolio manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio said Thursday it was the best of conference calls for TripAdvisor (TRIP) but not for Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR).

TripAdvisor stock has been traveling up and down the market, up 4% late Wednesday, down early Thursday and now up nearly 2% to $78. The company reported missing on revenue and earnings late Wednesday. Cramer said during CNBC's "Stop Trading" segment he liked everything he heard on the TripAdvisor conference call. He noted the company reiterated its guidance for strong revenue growth in 2015.

He added that competitor Priceline Group (PCLN) also reported earnings. However, despite topping revenue and earnings expectations Priceline reported weaker-than-expected guidance for the second quarter. Shares are currently off nearly 4%.

Meanwhile, Keurig Green Mountain's conference call was "one of the worst calls ever," Cramer said. Keurig shares are down nearly 10% after the company missed on top and bottom line estimates. 

Analysts are starting to grow tired of Keurig management's constant over-promising and under-delivering, he added. Management continues to say things are good and that doesn't turn out to be the case.

So if you're interested in investing in Keurig Green Mountain, don't buy its shares. Instead, buy Coca-Cola (KO) because it owns a 16% stake in Keurig.

At the time of publication, Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS had no position in companies mentioned.
