Lightning Round: Avon Products, Hess, Barrick Gold and More

Avon Products : On news that this beauty products company is getting a new CEO, Cramer would hold the stock. But he's not necessarily a buyer.

Hess : Rather than owning Hess, Cramer prefers rival EOG Resources.

Barrick Gold : When it comes to gold plays, Cramer prefers the SPDR Gold Trust exchange-traded fund.

Baidu : This Internet company is the only China-based stock Cramer is recommending right now.

Heico : Cramer is a buyer of this stock.

Dell : While Cramer isn't interested in buying this stock right now, he would hold onto shares of this technology company.

Deere : This is not a well-run company, Cramer said, because it can't seem to deliver on the bottom line. Should its stock fall to the mid-$80 range, he might recommend selling shares.

Interactive Brokers : Cramer likes this stock's yield, so he's OK with it.

Corning : Although this stock has dropped to levels that make it look attractive, Cramer still isn't sure it's worth buying.

When this story was published, Drew Sandholm owned the GLD.
