Lightning Round: Whole Foods, Halliburton and More

Whole Foods Market : Don’t buy, Cramer said. Not until the stock drops until $17 or $18. The store is just too expensive for the average American.

Halliburton : Take profits on Halliburton. Nabors or Schlumberger is a better oil-drillers pick right now, Cramer said.

Inter Digital : Take profits on IDCC, too, Cramer said. He’s not bullish on wireless technology, to which Inter Digital’s connected, at this point.

Petrohawk Energy : Cramer said HK wouldn’t rebound until natural gas prices bottom at $8 and then turn up. But he’s bullish on Petrohawk longer term.

Waste Management : Take profits on WMI, Cramer said, because the Republic Services acquisition is holding up the stock. Sell RSG, too.

Rent-A-Center : “Rent-A-Center is ideal in this market…when times get tough, people rent.”
