Lightning Round: Wendy's, Alcoa, DuPont and More

Calgon Carbon : While this might have once been a play on the new Obama administration, Cramer won’t get behind it now. He’s not sure what sector the president’s spending plans could hurt next.

DuPont : Cramer won’t recommend DuPont. The dividend isn’t safe, he said.

Western Refining : Go with Marathon Oil instead, Cramer said.

Del Monte : Cramer said he likes Del Monte and Dean Foods.

AK Steel : Sell AK. Cramer won’t recommend the steel companies at these levels.

Wendy's/Arby's Group :McDonald’s is better. Buy MCD under $50.

International Paper : Stay away from IP.

Alcoa : Alcoa might work as a speculative play, Cramer said.

Vectren : Cramer said he’d research Vectren and come back later with a call.

Valley National Bank : Cramer can’t endorse banks right now. Sell VLY.

Cedar Fair : Don’t buy, Cramer said, not after the company missed its latest quarter.

Smith International : SII is cheap, and Cramer thinks the stock is a buy.
