Speculation that Goldman Sachs or Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway will provide Washington Mutual with a much-needed infusion of money sent WM’s shares up 17% Tuesday. Cramer brushed the talk aside, saying that he couldn’t recommend a stock that’s already run that much anyway.
He did have some advice for Washington Mutual, though: Us this bump to launch a secondary offering and raise capital. “Issue 150 million shares,” Cramer said, “and get that balance sheet right.”
Cramer also took a moment to reiterate his call on Deere and the agriculture sector. “The group is always the best group to buy on the oversold” rallies, he said.
