Lightning Round: Altria, Baidu, PNC Financial and More

Thursday, 15 Jan 2009 | 9:21 PM ET

Rock Tenn : With the packaging business “a bit of a nightmare,” Cramer said, RKT is a “don’t buy.”

PNC Financial : Ultra-short exchange-trade funds are doing serious damage to banks, Cramer said, even solid companies like PNC, so he can’t recommend this stock right now.

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

AeroVironment : The money’s been made in AVAV, Cramer said, so take profits.

Baidu.Com : Baidu’s too risky for Cramer. Strict control of the Internet in China could, at any point, have a detrimental affect on the company.

Altria : Cramer’s bullish on MO and its 8% dividend. “This stock in the best-acting stock in 2009,” he said.

Public Service Enerprise : PEG is a buy, Cramer said.
