Lightning Round: KB Home, Dell, Whole Foods and More
VMware : Don’t get greedy, Cramer said. “Always ring the register when you’re up 38 points.” He recommended taking half off the table.
KB Home : Its quarter was a “thing of beauty,” all things considered. Cramer would rather own the senior debt than the common shares, though.
Dell : The better play is Hewlett-Packard , Cramer said. “Dell is unexciting.”
Whole Foods Market : It has been rocketing, but Cramer doesn’t want to get too excited. Take out the cost basis and let the rest run, he said.
Xoma : Buy XOMA at $3 and sell it at $5. Cramer urged patience, but he said it should make a comeback.
Texas Instruments : “It seems to have stalled. I’m not stalling. I think it goes to $40.”
Coleman Cable : Cramer admits he hasn’t looked into Coleman recently enough to opine on its state of business. He promised to come back to it.
Microsoft : No matter what it does – whether its Halo or online advertising or a new Zune – MSFT can’t gather momentum. Cramer recommended Apple for those who want exposure to tech.
Occidental Petroleum : Cramer’s still bullish on the oil companies, but OXY isn’t one of his favorites. It has also had a “monster run,” he said, so why not take some off?
ISIS Pharma : “I want you in Nastech !”
Flotek : Cramer is a fan of the oil services. FTK is at a 52-week high, so let it come in but it’s a “good one,” he said.
Crocs : “I still think Crocs goes higher.” Questions, comments, suggestions for the Mad Money website? firstname.lastname@example.org
