Lightning Round: Hertz, Apple & More

Are you ready skeedaddy???!!! It's time for the Lightning Round. Cramer makes the call on viewer favorites.

Hertz (HTZ): I like this stock, said Cramer. I know it had a big rally since late June but I think it's just marking time before it goes again.

Compugen (CGEN): I need to do homework, said Cramer, before I opine.

Peabody Energy (BTU): I'm a seller, said Cramer. If you must play coal I'd do it with Joy Global but lately there's been no joy in Joy.

Apple (AAPL): I think the stock is fine, said Cramer, but I don't see a catalyst. However. if a catalyst emerges it could go up like a coiled spring.

Isis Pharmaceuticals (ISIS): I think it's a good stock, said Cramer. There's takeover chatter in the market but that's not why I would own Isis.
