Lightning Round: Valero, Goodrich, Harsco and More

Vale : Cramer would hold off buying RIO yet, but he still recommends it on a long-term basis.

Goodrich : Even at a 52-week low, Cramer wouldn’t go near Goodrich, or anything auto-related for that matter.

Skyworks : Take some profits and buy it back lower, Cramer said.

Harsco : Don’t give up, Cramer urged. Use wide scales and buy with caution, but Harsco’s still a good one.

Valero : There was a 20 year period when the refiners didn’t make any money. Cramer thinks we could be “back in that game.” He would not buy Valero or any refiner.

Vectren : This regional utility, with its good-looking yield, is “my kind of company in this environment,” Cramer said.

StanCorp Financial : Stancorp is part of a very exclusive club – financial stocks Cramer is willing to deem “safe.”

Eneris : A Latin American utility that Cramer likes.

Brown Forman : Analysts might be running from Brown Forman, but Cramer is running toward it.

Health Spring : Cramer said he’s “gunshy” about the healthcare cost business until after the election.
