Lightning Round: Cheesecake Factory, Imax, Alcoa and More
Cheesecake Factory : This stock has run a lot, but Cramer really likes it. He would buy.
EZCORP : This Austin, Texas-based company provides short-term loans to individuals, including pawn loans. Cramer likes EZCORP as a play on the vanishing middle class.
Imax : The "Mad Money" host said this is the only movie chain he wants to own because it is proprietary. It had a big run and then sold off, and he likes it at this level.
Zhongpin : You don't want to own this bad Chinese stock, Cramer said.
LDK Solar : This is another Chinese stock Cramer doesn't want homegamers to own. "It's a loser stock," he said. The only Chinese stock he is recommending is search engine Baidu ,because it has similar financials to US financials and because Google is not allowed in China.
Alcoa : Cramer thinks Alcoa's earnings the second half of the year are going to be terrific. "Alcoa is ready to roll and you need to roll with them," he said.
Plains All American Pipeline : While Cramer wished it yielded a little more, he thinks PAA is terrific. But if it goes north of five percent, he wants homegamers to pull the trigger.
Hawaiian Electric : Cramer prefers Southern , Dominion Resources and Consolidated Edison , but if homegamers are already in HE, he suggests reinvesting in the company.
El Paso : This is a winning stock, Cramer said. He thinks it's worth $21 to $22.
When this story was published, Cramer's charitable trust owned Alcoa.
