“This is one of the easiest ones I’ve ever had on the show,” Cramer said. Kurt’s got a food and ethanol play in ADM, oil in OXY, earth mover in CAT, infrastructure in FWLT and a mineral in FCX. “Boom! That’s what I wanna see!”
Uh-oh. Duke is a utility. Con Ed is a utility. AT&T is a utility. Cramer is willing to keep T and ED, but he would swap out of Duke and pick up a machinery or infrastructure play.
