Lightning Round: Sears, Apple, Toyota and More

Sears Holdings : This is the “single worst environment possible” to own Sears, according to Cramer.

Apple : This is a long-term stock to own, however, the market looks set up to sell on good news so Cramer would not buy it ahead of its Wednesday earnings report.

Excel Maritime : Dry shipping looks like it’s coming back, Cramer said. He would take a little profit in EXM and buy Frontline .

ExxonMobil : It’s “pretty hard to beat” XOM these days, Cramer said. Perhaps only ConocoPhillips is a better play.

AT&T : Cramer is bullish on this high-yielding stock.

Consol Energy : “You’ve got a winner,” Cramer said.

Broadcom : The only semiconductor stock Cramer would even consider buying is Intel .

International Coal Group : One of the few coal stocks that Cramer actually does not like.

K-SEA Transportation : This one is in good shape as far as Cramer is concerned.

Toyota : No autos and no airlines on Mad Money, Cramer said. Don’t buy.

Duke Energy : Good growth, good yield. Cramer would be a buyer.

Hercules Offshore : Stick with best of breed, Cramer said: Nabors , Halliburton , Schlumberger and Transocean .

Parker Drilling : See above. There are far better drillers out there, Cramer said.

Jim's charitable trust owns Sears and Conoco.
