Lightning Round: Tootsie Roll, Caterpillar, Mosaic and More

Friday, 1 Feb 2008 | 10:47 AM ET


Goodrich : Cramer would buy this defense play even though it has been down.

Excel Maritime : The dry-bulk shippers are overvalued, Cramer said. Sell EXM.

Lightning Round
You say the name of a stock, and Mad Money's Jim Cramer tells you whether to buy or sell.

Rubicon : Good, but Corning is better. Cramer’s price target for GLW is $30.

Martha Stewart : While Cramer is a fan of Martha Stewart, he can’t in good conscience recommend her stock. Publishing is too tough an industry right now, he said.

Caterpillar : Cramer said he “did not respect the cycle” by selling CAT for his charitable trust. In a post-Fed era, CAT’s weakness of being tied to homebuilding is now its strength. He thinks it goes higher.

Tootsie Roll : “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” There have been takeover rumors about Tootsie Roll dating back to the early ‘90s, Cramer said, but nothing ever happens. Without a catalyst, he can’t get behind the stock – especially in an environment of high food costs.

ING Groep : Cramer endorsed ING because it’s a bank and the time is right to own financials again.

Mosaic : Cramer has cooled a bit on Mosaic and the rest of the agriculture complex since Wednesday’s Fed cut put the brakes on momentum plays.

Danaher : This company managed to get exposure to tech just when Cramer turned on tech. If it stuck with its hand tool business, he would have bought it, but not anymore.

China Mobile : China stocks, like agriculture, were purely momentum plays. Cramer doesn’t think CHL will fare well anymore.


Jim's charitable trust owns Corning.
