It's Time for the Lightning Round!

Thursday, 26 Apr 2007 | 8:02 PM ET

Volcano : “I would still buy it … I would stick with Volcano. I like that stock very much.”

Akamai Technologies : Cramer says analyst expectations – and his own – for Akamai were too high, and the company just couldn’t live up to them. He thinks he stuck with the stock for too long. He likes it at $40, but doesn’t know if he can recommend getting in at present levels.

Lightning Round
You say the name of the stock and Cramer tells you to buy or sell

Cal Dive International : “We like these companies. We like oil drillers. We like oil service companies, even some that are doing the Gulf.”

Marvell Tech : Cramer likes the business, but now that the SEC has made its inquiry into MRVL formal, he can’t get behind it. He doesn’t trust a company with this type of accounting trouble. Cramer recently sold his charitable trust’s position in Marvell.

Pacific Ethanol : “Nope, nope. We have not liked that company since its inception.” If you’re looking for a play in this sector, Cramer recommends Archer Daniels Midland.

Krispy Kreme : KKD’s performance has been too tepid for Cramer to be enthusiastic about the stock.

AT&T: “I don’t want you to worry a thing about AT&T.” Cramer says that the Street was unhappy with the latest quarter, but they were wrong. AT&T should be a core position in anyone’s portfolio.

Nabors Industries : “This happens to be a company that’s going higher because they are in the best single housing market in this country other than the San Antonio area.”

NutriSystem : Cramer admits that he has been negative on NTRI in the recent past, but he says he’ll bless it for a short-term trade. “I’ve got to be more positive on NutriSystems.”
