Lightning Round: Taser, DaVita, Garmin and More

Hologic : This last conference call was atrocious. Cramer called on HOLX management to come on Mad Money to explain what’s wrong. Otherwise, the stock is in the penalty box for at least three quarters.

Bear Stearns : “There’s nothing there.” Cramer recommended selling Bear and buying its acquirer, JP Morgan .

Taser : Taser’s had its day, as far as Cramer can tell. He’d be selling.

Illinois Tool Works : This is a great American manufacturing company that Cramer said he’d buy here.

Applied Materials : The semiconductor business is bad, but AMAT’s exposure to solar makes it a buy, Cramer said.

Synchronoss : Cramer admits he got “too fired up” on this stock. The business is too cutthroat and the company doesn’t have the margins, he said.

Conceptus : Cramer said he needs to know more background on the stock before making an informed call.

DaVita : It’s a buy on its kidney failure machines, Cramer said.

St. Joe : This company owns a lot of land in Florida. Maybe down the line it will be a buy, Cramer said, but right now he’s staying on the sidelines.

Kinder Morgan : Well run, good business, pays a huge dividend. What’s not to like about Kinder Morgan? Cramer would buy it.

Tenet Health : Go elsewhere, Cramer said. The gains have been made

Garmin : Cramer recommended selling this after Christmas and he never looked back.
