Mad Money Lightning Round: CF Industries, Gentex, SunTrust and More

Friday, 21 Nov 2008 | 6:59 PM ET

Before getting into today's 'Lightning Round,' Cramer clarifies one of last night's calls, Flowers Foods . It never filed for bankruptcy; however, in 2001 Flowers Industriessold its stake in Keebler to Kellogg and the rest of the company became Flowers Foods. And since "people are still going to eat bread," it's a Buy for Cramer.

After that quick note, Friday's 'Lightning Round' gets underway:

CF Industries - Sell! If you want in on fertilizers, go with Terra Nitrogen instead.

Gentex - Buy! It's a bargain and so "close to cash," it's time to "pull the trigger" on this one.

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

SunTrust - Sell! This is not the old, trustworthy SunTrust, it's a new SunTrust that takes too many risks. Cramer also notes today's rally was in oil, not financials.

Consol Energy - Don't short. Cramer points out that China's still a huge importer of coal.

Diageo - Buy! With great products like Johnnie Walker and its current yield, "pull the trigger" on this one too.
