When what the last time AT&T (T) offered investors an upside surprise? They did it just last night, with an uptick in wireless subscribers that boosted shares by more than 5% in a single day. The company's tie-up with DirecTV is working, Cramer said, and the stock still yields 5%.

Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) is also still struggling, after management reported that sales fell a sharp 5% after the latest round of health issues.
