On a bad day for stocks, the natural gas group always trades even lower than the overall market, Cramer pointed out during Monday’s Stop Trading!. So with the Dow falling about 195 points today, investors have the chance to get these names at a great price.
Cramer called Chesapeake Energy “one of the better plays,” and said that he likes Ultra Petroleum and Southwestern Energy as well.
In tech, he recommended Adobe Systems and Intuit on their recent strong quarters. Profit-taking has stopped the rally that pushed software companies higher, so Cramer said to focus on the firms who delivered quality earnings – ADBE and INTU.
He likes these stocks on the coming end-of-quarter weakness, especially as plays on mutual funds’ appetite for tech right now. He called Adobe and Intuit “a great place to be” for those who believe more money will come off the sidelines and into these funds.
Lastly, Cramer seconded the call on Huntsman made by BB&T analyst Frick Mitch, who put the risk-reward on the stock at a potential 50% loss versus a possible 200% in upside. HUN could move in either direction, depending on the outcome of its lawsuit against Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank. While recognizing that having an investment cut in half isn’t desirable, Cramer said the risk might be worth it because he thinks Huntsman has a good chance of winning the case.
