Lightning Round: Petrobras, DuPont, Sears and More

Friday, 8 Oct 2010 | 6:42 PM ET

Petrobras : The fact that PBR could issue even more stock—or so said a Barclays report, Cramer noted—after holding the biggest equity offering in history has the “Mad Money” host “concerned.” So he won’t recommend Petrobras right now.

Lightning Round
You say the name of a stock, and Mad Money's Jim Cramer tells you whether to buy or sell.

Sears Holdings : Sears works as “an interesting spec,” Cramer said, but he can’t recommend the stock after the company’s last quarter, which “wasn’t that good or … that bad.” Home Depot is his favorite in this space.

Penn West Energy : Don’t buy PWE. “It just had a big run,” Cramer said. Regardless, he likes Permian Basin Royalty Trust, BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust and some of the other energy trusts more than Penn West.

Union Pacific : “This is a terrific stock,” Cramer said.

H&R Block :Intuit INTU is the better play, Cramer said.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters : There’s “too much risk” in GMCR, Cramer said. Don’t buy.

DuPont : Cramer endorsed DD and its 3.6-percent dividend yield.

CBOE Holdings : Cramer isn’t as excited about this stock as he once was, but CBOE is so cheap, he said, “You have to pull the trigger a little bit.”

First Horizon National :PNC Financial and US Bancorp “are better regionals than FHN,” Cramer said, but this stock works as a speculation play, he said. “At $11, I think it works.”

When this story published, Cramer’s charitable trust owned Home Depot.
