NVIDIA : Cramer doesn’t like the graphics chipmakers right now. He recommended AMD as a speculation play instead, Cramer said.

MGM Mirage : Sell, sell, sell, Cramer said. The same goes for Las Vegas Sands . “The gambling business is just absolutely through the floor.”

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

Petmed Express : Competition from Wal-Mart means this stock can’t be owned, Cramer said.

Wachovia : Wachovia’s a buy, Cramer said, after Wells Fargo takeover.

Thermo Fisher Scientific : The stock has been cut in half, but “this is the kind of company that will come roaring back,” Cramer said. He likes the biotech exposure. TMO’s a buy.

Imperial Oil : Go with BP for its dividend yield instead, Cramer said.

Electronic Arts : Don’t buy, Cramer said.

Jim's charitable trust owns BP, Wachovia and Wal-Mart.
