Lightning Round: Caterpillar, Home Depot, Bucyrus and More

CONSOL Energy : The company has a lot of coal exposure, which might not work well during an Obama presidency. So take profits in CNX.

Petsmart : Cramer wouldn’t make a call on Petsmart until he had the chance to review the company’s latest earnings report.

Bucyrus International : Cramer’s bullish on Bucyrus.

Lowe’s :Home Depot with its 4% yield is a better choice, Cramer said.

CBRL Group : Cramer said Cracker Barrel is making a “major comeback,” so CBRL is a buy.

Caterpillar : Cramer’s a bit concerned about the company’s dividend, but he’s bullish on CAT long term.

Cramer's charitable trust owns Caterpillar.
