Lightning Round: Marathon, Health Care REIT, CenturyLink and More

Lightning Round

Marathon : This oil company recently reported disappointing earnings results, Cramer noted. Carrizo Oil & Gas , however, delivered strong numbers and could "easily be taken over," he said. So while he likes both names, Cramer would rather go with CRZO.

Health Care REIT : Despite concerns over government regulation in the health care space, Cramer thinks this company has "cushion" and called it a buy.

CenturyLink : This telecom name reported one of the worst earnings reports Cramer's seen yet. So he's not interested in its stock.

IntraLinks : This technology company recently reported a terrible company, Cramer said. Before buying shares, he wants to wait another quarter to see what it does.

Apache : Cramer said this natural gas company has a great growth profile and remains a buyer.

Johnson Controls : While stock recently took a hit, Cramer thinks it could soon go higher. He called it a "screaming buy."

When this story was published, Cramer's charitable trust owned Apache.
