Lightning Round: US Steel, Yahoo!, Coinstar and More

Navistar International : “I think Navistar is terrific,” Cramer said. He also likes PACCAR , though he thinks the truck industry returns in 2010, not 2009.

Yahoo! : Don’t buy YHOO, Cramer said. He thinks the new CEO, Carol Bartz, set expectations too high, and he’s not sure about the earnings.

Coinstar : “I like the stock,” Cramer said of CSTR. He thinks company has a near monopoly with its coin-counting kiosks.

US Steel : US Steel has already had a “monster move,” Cramer said. So go with Nucor instead.

EMCOR Group : Cramer thinks EME works as an economic-recovery play.

Hanesbrands : “It’s a little expensive,” Cramer said. Don’t buy HBI. He likes VF Corp. better.

Gran Tierra Energy : Don’t buy Gran Tierra. XTO Energy , Apache , Continental Resources and Anadarko Petroleum are better picks than GTE, Cramer said.

Oracle : Cramer is bullish on ORCL.

Cypress Semi : Buy Cypress Semi, Cramer said.

Dell : Don’t buy Dell. There are strong tech stocks worth buying, Cramer said, such as Cisco Systems.

Thompson Creek : Stay away from TC, Cramer said. The stock has already run in advance of rising molybdenum prices.

Cramer’s charitable trust owns Cisco Systems and VF Corp.
