MetroPCS Communications : Cramer said this stock's time has come and gone, and he'd rather own some Sprint Nextel bonds instead.

Chimera Investment : Cramer said he feels much better about affiliate Annaly Capital Management over Chimera. With a 13 percent return a strong management team, he thinks it's the better play.

Realty Income Corp : To Cramer, this company offers "domestic security," meaning it has little overseas exposure. It also boasts great growth prospects and juicy dividend.
