Lightning Round: Patriot Coal, American Express, Corning and More

American Express : Before buying shares of this credit services company, Cramer recommends waiting until after it reports earnings next week.

Corning : Being as the glass maker recently increased its dividend, Cramer is a buyer of this stock.

Coca-Cola : Despite a recent downgrade, Cramer remains bullish on this stock. He thinks the soft drink maker is a well-run company.

United Parcel Service : This stock could go $75 a share, Cramer said. He likes the transports right now.

Dendreon : Forget this biotechnology stock, Cramer said. It's too speculative and there are other high-yielding names out there.

Xerox : Rather than invest in XRX, Cramer likes data management name EMC .

UnitedHealth Group : Cramer had been bullish on this stock, but the company ran into accounting problems and he had to change his mind. He isn't recommending any health care plan providers right now, though, because of the threat of regulation from the Barack Obama administration.

Patriot Coal : The coal space hasn't been the place to be lately, Cramer said. Take your profits when you can.






















When this story was published, Cramer's charitable trust owned American Express, Coca-Cola, EMC and UPS.
