Stop Trading!: Four Dividend Plays From Cramer

Thursday, 16 Oct 2008 | 3:42 PM ET

Cramer recommended four dividend-paying stocks during Thursday’s Stop Trading!.

HJ Heinz offers a 4% dividend yield. A stronger dollar has caused some weakness in the stock, but Cramer thinks HNZ should be bought right now. He’s not sure how much longer the company can stay independent if the stock goes any lower.

Coca-Cola pays out 3.5%. KO between $40 and $43 is a steal, Cramer said.

Stop Trading, Listen to Cramer!
Mad Money host Jim Cramer shares his stock picks with CNBC's Erin Burnett.

Waste Management just reported a better-than-expected quarter, and pays 3.75% to its shareholders.

And lastly, Cramer likes Caterpillar. It is an industrial company, exposing it to some cyclical problems, but Cramer thinks CAT should be bought right here. The dividend yield is 4%.

Cramer’s strategy? Let hedge funds knock these stocks down and then use that an your entry point.

Should we turn Social Security into a sovereign fund? Watch the video to find out what Cramer thinks.
