Lightning Round: Alcoa, Delcath Systems, Linn Energy and More

Wendy’s/Arby’s : “I don’t want to give up on Wendy’s,” Cramer said. “Wendy’s is under pressure, but I like the turn” the company has been making. He recommended buying this stock.

Seabridge Gold : “If that’s the way you want to play gold,” Cramer said, “that’s fine. I prefer [SPDR Gold Shares], I prefer bullion, and I prefer gold coins. I don’t want to have any mining risk if I can avoid it.”

Alcoa : Investors who want to invest in companies that benefit from lower energy prices should go with DuPont or Dow Chemical instead, Cramer said. But sell AA.

Norfolk Southern : “I like the rails,” Cramer said, “but Union Pacific is my favorite.”

Delcath Systems : Cramer likes DCTH as a speculative biotech play.

Linn Energy : Linn right now has too much natural-gas exposure, Cramer said. Investors should consider Kinder Morgan Energy Partners instead.
