Lightning Round: Starbucks, Nucor, AIG and More

Starbucks : Cramer is still bullish on Starbucks and its turnaround. He also reiterated his buy call on McDonald’s as well.

Under Armour : Cramer said he sees no momentum in UA right now. He recommended Nike instead, or even Lululemon Athletica as a speculative play.

Allstate : Go with Travelers instead, Cramer said.

IMAX : Sell IMAX, Cramer said. He thinks the stock has already made its move.

Cedar Fair : Cramer said he’s been wrong about FUN in the past, so the best call he can make right now is “don’t buy.”

Huntington Bancshares : Cramer likes HBAN as a great speculative play on the banks. He also endorsed FirstMerit as a more conservative investment in the sector.

Nucor : Cramer said that Nucor is a buy under $40.

American International Group : Stay away from AIG, Cramer said.

CVS Caremark : Cramer said CVS is a well-run company, and he recommended it for being the “dominant drug-store chain in America.” But when it comes to pharmacy-benefits management, likes Express Scripts and MedcoHealth Solutions more.
