Lightning Round: Dynegy, Sears, Taser and More

Dynegy : Cramer doesn’t recommend buying it right here, but “there’s no reason to get off this horse,” he said. Wait until it dips below $9 and pull the trigger.

NVIDIA : Every time NVIDIA is down, it’s Cramer’s semiconductor of choice, and he isn’t deviating here.

Sears Holdings : This stock desperately needs the housing market to rebound. Cramer expects nothing from SHLD until the Fed cuts “at least 100 basis points.”

DSW : It’s a good business but it’s another struggling retailer – and Cramer said he can’t get behind any more retailers than he is already behind.

Metabolix : Cramer much prefers First Solar , a stock that would have been especially good to buy today with oil up and the market down.

Vasco Data Security : A good company but not one worth buying here at its 52-week high ahead of earnings. Wait until the report and maybe it will come in, Cramer said.

Taser : Ring the register up here, Cramer said. Remember: “Bulls make money, bears make money, hogs get slaughtered.”

Jim's charitable trust owns Sears Holdings.
