Lightning Round: Qualcomm, Verizon & More

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

Qualcomm (QCOM): I think the company will have a better 2015 than 2014, said Cramer. I know that's a long-term view but that's how I think about it.

Rambus (RMBS): In the space I'd rather own Intel, said Cramer.

Approach Resources (AREX): I don't really understand why it trades so poorly versus rivals, said Cramer. I see it as a good spec stock.

Verizon (VZ): T-Mobile will report later in the week, said Cramer, and I think they could bash Verizon. I'd keep powder dry until then, but long-term I like it.

Mondelez (MDLZ): It's a good business, said Cramer. Over the long-term I think the stock should go higher.

Shire (SHPG): It's rumored to be a takeover target, said Cramer, because it's an Irish domicile. But rumors aren't a good reason to buy a stock.
