Lightning Round: Airgas, Statoil and More

Hercules Offshore : This stock’s a winner if President Bush gets his way and Congress allows more offshore drilling in the U.S.

Encore Wire : Raw costs, especially with copper, make Cramer hesitant to recommend WIRE.

Statoil Hydro : “We don’t want to be in that,” Cramer said. The company’s losing reserves.

Airgas : Cramer’s bullish on Airgas. “That’s a fabulous business,” he said.

Quest Diagnostics :Lab Corp. of America is a better pick, Cramer said.
