NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Jim Cramer answered viewers' Twitter (TWTR) questions from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, covering a wide array of companies, from Volkswagen (VLKAY) to Lions Gate (LGF) , Check Point Software (CHKP - Get Report) to Hain Celestial (HAIN - Get Report) , among others.
Asked whether the newly revealed fraud involving Volkswagen emissions -- and its subsequent stock plunge -- made the stock a buy or not, Cramer said to stay away -- for now. "This is the largest maker of vehicles in the world, and these phony results to beat the EPA has the stock down 20%. Typically I would say buy Volkswagen, but people seem to think this could be the end of Volkswagen in the U.S. Second day, I would buy it though, tomorrow, not today."
Asked for his thoughts on cybersecurity firm Check Point Software, Cramer said he prefers another player in the space. "I think Palo Alto Networks (PANW - Get Report) is cybersecurity and I'm not going to go away from them."
Another viewer wondered how much more pain food company Hain Celestial was going to cause its shareholders. "I was doing some work on Hain this weekend and the pain has been pretty unfathomable. AAP has gravitated toward WhiteWave (WWAV) . I think there is very little chance of a takeout because Erwin Simon likes to run the company and I think WhiteWave is a different story. I think they would make money either way, a takeout or just better earnings."
To the viewer who wondered if Kinder Morgan (KMI - Get Report) was a good buy-and-hold stock, and whether its dividend was safe, considering how beaten down the shares have been, Cramer offered some encouragement -- and another stock to consider.
"I think Kinder Morgan is safe," Cramer answered. "I think there's a perception that this group has had it, but if you're levered to natural gas, the demand is very strong. That's why we like Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) which is involved in a deal. ETP -- this stock has been the worst stock that we've owned for a long time, and yet I think it's going to end up being one of the best."
Finally, a viewer asked for both a short and long term take on filmmaker Lions Gate. His response: Skip the lion and invest in the mouse. "We know Disney (DIS - Get Report) is down gigantically, we know that even though cable is challenged, has the best cable in terms of what we really want, which is sports. I'm not going to go down the food chain, I like Disney."
