Lightning Round: Ford, Pepsi, Onyx and More

Cal-Maine Foods :PepsiCo , Coca-Cola , General Mills , Kellogg and Heinz are all better food stocks to own, Cramer said.

ConEd : “Pull the trigger!” ConEd gets Cramer’s blessing.

Time Warner : “Problematic.” Cramer can’t recommend. Verizon’s a better play, he said.

Gushan : “One of the few Chinese stocks I like,” Cramer said.

Harley Davidson : HOG isn’t the stock to own during a slowdown-recession, Cramer said.

Intuitive Surgical : “It’s just not going to quit yet.” Cramer said he thinks ISRG goes higher.

AstraZeneca : This is one of the few big-cap pharma stocks that Cramer will recommend, he said.

Zimmer Holdings : Cramer doesn’t like the competition in Zimmer’s business, and the stock’s too expensive, he said. Don’t buy.

Rite Aid : Cramer said he needs to see more from CEO Mary Sammons before he’ll recommend RAD.

Capital One :Husdon City Bancorp , JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs – those are Cramer’s favorite financial stocks.

Onyx Pharma : “I can’t go for it right now,” Cramer said.

Sirius : Cramer had not call on SIRI other than to say the FCC is taking too long to allow the satellite radio company’s merger with XM .

YRC Worldwide : “I’m still a rail guy,” Cramer said. Go with CSX instead.

Ford Motor : “I only like the Ford preferred, not the common” [stock], Cramer said.

Triple-S Management : “One of the few HMOs that is really working,” Cramer said. GTS is a buy.

Genesis Lease : “It’s just not working,” Cramer said, because GLS can’t raise enough money to buy planes to lease. Don’t buy.

Capital Product : “Don’t know ‘em. Gotta take a rain check on CPLP.”
