Lightning Round: Cisco, Markwest Energy & More

Cisco (CSCO): I know it's cheap, but I'm not a buyer, said Cramer. The whole sector is challenged.

Markwest Energy (MWE): I like the stock, said Cramer. But it's no Kinder Morgan.

Cirrus Logic (CRUS): If you own this as an Apple play, I'd rather that you own Apple, said Cramer.

Syngenta (SYT): This is a very good company, said Cramer. But at current levels, I prefer Monsanto.

Parker Drilling (PKD): No, no no, exclaimed Cramer. I'm a seller – this stock has been a laggard. I'd much rather play Schlumberger.

Alcoa (AA): I'd wait, said Cramer. It may be a growth stock but it's trapped in an aluminum body.

Carrizo Oil & Gas (CRZO): This stock is ok, said Cramer, but frankly I prefer Chesapeake.

Yelp (YELP): If you're long, I'd hold, said Cramer.
