Lightning Round: Prudential, City Telecom, Zions and More

Unitedhealth Group : Don’t buy, Cramer said. Find a cyclical stock to play the recovery instead.

AllianceBernstein : Cramer called AB a “decent stock,” saying he likes the 7.3% dividend yield. But he’s likes Kinder Morgan Energy Partners even more.

City Telecom : Cramer is bullish on CTEL, a stock-market rarity that offers both growth and sizable dividend yield.

Zions Bancorp : “We’ve had a huge run in ZION,” Cramer said. He recommended taking profits on half your position and letting the rest run. Then wait for the stock to pull back to buy more.

Verizon Communications : Cramer endorsed Verizon, saying it could head back up to $32-$33.

Hartford Financial :Prudential is a better stock, Cramer said.

Cramer’s charitable trust owns Prudential.
