Lightning Round: Pepsi, Verizon, Baidu, Boeing and More

Tuesday, 23 Dec 2008 | 7:46 PM ET

GlaxoSmithKline - Buy. It's a "positive" company. "Works for me."

PepsiCo - Buy. The beverage company is down a bit, but Cramer still stands behind this favorite of his and says to "pull the trigger" on it.

Pfizer - Buy. After being down on this stock for so long, Cramer now see it as a buy: "I like the yield."

Vodafone and Verizon - Voda is "too complicated" but VZ is a Buy.

Philip Morris - Buy. Cramer: "PM is for me."

Baidu - Although he likes Chinese stocks in other areas, he's wary about their Internet stocks, due to the Chinese government's draconian privacy issues and past conflicts involving net usage. He can't recommend this one.

Flower Foods - Buy. The green grocer company's management is solid. "One-and-half thumbs up," says Cramer.

Boeing - This is a big resounding "NO!" Cramer calls it perhaps "the most dangerous stock in 2009." He's worried about their order cancellations among other things. Again BA "may be worst stock to own" in 2009.

National-Oilwell Varco - Sell. "Can't own it," Cramer says of this one-time fave of his. "Oil's going too low."

Terex - This company doesn't fall into Cramer's "Best of Breed" criteria for this industry. For that, you need to look at Caterpiller . "Pull the trigger" on CAT and stay away from TEX.
