Lightning Round: Ford, Verizon, Alcoa and More

ION Geophysical : For investors that want a seismic-mapping play, Cramer said, go with Core Labs .

Ford : “Ford’s too hard….it’s too speculative,” Cramer said of the common stock. Sell, sell, sell.

DHT Maritime :Nordic American and Frontline are the only two tanker stocks Cramer will recommend.

Verizon Communications :Comcast is favored by analysts when it comes content distribution, but Cramer likes Verizon and its 5% yield. He’s bullish on AT&T , which also has a 5% yield, too.

Celgene : “We want to own biotech into any slowdown,” Cramer said. Great CEO, great pipeline, great earnings visibility. Celgene’s a buy.

Red Robin Gourmet : “I am not a fan,” Cramer said. Panera Bread is a better pick.

Eastman Kodak : “EK’s a serial disappointer,” Cramer said. Don’t buy.

Alcoa : With raw costs coming down and demand in China high, this cheap stock is a buy, Cramer said.
