Sell These 2 Nutrition Names

Thursday, 25 Mar 2010 | 7:50 PM ET

Analysts seem to love Vitacost.com and Vitamin Shoppe. It doesn’t matter whether they sell their nutritional supplements online or in-store, both stocks are buys as far as Wall Street’s concerned.

But what does Cramer think?

Mad Money Sell Block
Mad Money's Jim Cramer tells you which stocks you ought to be selling right now, either to take profits or to cut your losses.

“I just can’t decide which one I like less,” he said Thursday.

He called Vitacost.com and Vitamin Shoppe “two superficially appealing names that are actually, I think, extremely dangerous.” Whether it’s an egregious case of insider selling or little opportunity left for growth, neither stock should be owned, Cramer said. Watch the video for his full report.
