It's Time for the Lightning Round!
Aventine Renewable : Cramer doesn’t want to go into ethanol – but if forced, Archer Daniels Midland would be his choice.
JetBlue Airways : Cramer thinks this stock is bottoming. He just wants to wait until JBLU reports the quarter, then he recommends getting bullish and pulling the trigger.
Danaher : Cramer says the brothers that run this business have a great track record, so he’s willing to ignore the shorts that are all over DHR. Down $4 from the high, Cramer’s backing up the truck. “I want you to get long Danaher.”
Citigroup : CEO Chuck Prince is just a clown prince to Cramer. He only likes the company because he thinks Citigroup will eventually come to its senses and give Prince the boot.
Haynes International : “This stock is going higher … Haynes is a keeper.”
Eli Lilly : “Eli Lilly’s finally starting to get a little jiggy here.” This is isn’t Cramer’s favorite drug stock – that’s Abbott Labs – but he thinks it’ll climb to $60 from its present level of $56 by the options expirations deadline next Friday, April 20. Then he thinks you should be a seller.
Crocs : “We like Crocs! We think it goes to $60.” More than a quarter of the stock is shorted right now, but Cramer says that is wrong.
National Oilwell Varco : “National Oilwell Varco at $83 goes to $90. I’m sticking by it.” Cramer’s also big on Transocean, Halliburton and GlobalSantaFe.
Digital River : The stock has been doing well, so Cramer recommends taking some profits. Remember: Bulls make money, bears make money – hogs get slaughtered.
Immucor : Cramer liked the stock at $20 and now it’s at a 52-week high.
Open Text : If you want a web play, Cramer recommends Akamai Technologies. Sell! Sell! Sell!
Family Dollar : “No! No! I don’t think FDO’s having that great a quarter. It’s down 10% from its high. I don’t want you in that. JC Penney just pulled back. Why don’t you buy some JC Penney?”
Jim’s charitable trust owns Transocean and Halliburton.
