Lightning Round: Merck, Cummins, Visa and More

Deckers Outdoor : “I think Deckers can add 10 more points before year end,” Cramer said.

Merck : “Merck doesn’t have it,” Cramer said. “It just doesn’t have want I want.” Abbott Labs is a better pick.

Cummins : Cramer is bullish on CMI.

Eli Lilly : LLY works as a dividend play, Cramer said. But investors shouldn’t expect any growth out of the company until it releases a blockbuster drug.

Visa : Cramer said he likes Visa, but American Express even more.

optionsXpress : OXPS is a buy, Cramer said.

BlackRock : “I think business is great there,” Cramer said. BLK is a buy.

When this story published, Cramer’s charitable trust owned Abbot Labs, American Express and Cummins.
