Lightning Round OT: Amazon, Valero and More

Lightning Round OT
You say the name of a stock, and Mad Money's Jim Cramer tells you whether to buy or sell.

Valero : “I am not a fan of Valero.” Cramer won’t recommend this stock until the dividend yield reaches at least 4% to 5%. It’s at just about 3.5% now.

Amazon.com : As much as Cramer likes Amazon, it’s a retailer with no dividend. And in this environment, that makes it too tough to buy. Don’t buy, he said.

Amerigas : Cramer said he likes this propane company and its dividend.
